      smooth progress
      Colin E - January 2013I was very pleased with the smooth progress of the sale of my property. Although I was unsure about the advice I was given it turned out to be spot on with the result that the sale proceeded quickly and at the suggested price.  The whole process was completed in about two months. I am very grateful for the professionalism of the staff (especially Lisa) and their courtesy and support.

      Couldn't recommend Pace highly enough
      MrandMrsT_April2014 We recently sold our house through Pace, which was the easy part! Our purchase on the other hand was a bit of a nightmare and although through a different estate agent, Lisa at Pace was amazing in ensuring everything went ok and being on hand for a bit of support.  Couldn't recommend Pace highly enough

      very helpful
      Ursula C - May 2014 - I bought a property through Pace which was not a straightforward sale.  During this time I found the sales team very helpful and felt they did all they could to resolve the matters we had.  Although this was a very frustrating purchase I felt that they went out of their way to make this sale go as smoothly as possible.  Thank you.
