      Thank you DMG for being the best out there
      I purchased my first property 7 years ago with David Martin Group, and recently sold and purchased my new house with Charlotte and the team at the Lexden Office.

      I would definitely use David Martin again if I was ever to move again, we had a sale fall through after nearly 10 weeks, no fault by them or us, back on the market & sold within days. Lorna is an absolute star, we exchanged contracts today less than 5 weeks after agreeing a sale and will complete next Friday. I would highly recommend them

Very best regards, George.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      great communication and regular updates
      As a first time buyer I have to say how fantastic I have found dealing with David Martin has been. Lorna has taken care of me and found me an amazing first home. I cant thank Lorna enough she has been truly brilliant and has made the process very exciting. What made my experience great with David Martin was the great communication and regular updates which really helped my situation as I work in the city Mon-Fri. Lorna understood fully exactly what I was looking for and was always on the end of the phone to answer my questions. I found booking viewings very easy and the information on the properties was sent over quickly and full of information. I was recommended David Martin by a friend who is also a very happy customer. I'm very impressed and thankful for the service I received. B.Bethell
