    • Seller Testimonial

      It was very helpful having an allocated member of staff to deal with the sale. Unfortunately our sale took nearly 6 months to get from offer to exchange due to a number of problems experienced by the buyer. Throughout this period Ruth offered excellent support. Always dealing quickly with any queries that we had and calling back promptly when she wasn't available. She was very friendly, supportive and professional at all times and helped to ease what was, on occasions, a very stressful time.

      Mr & Mrs M of Chester. May 2015

    • Seller Testimonial
