      Prompt, helpful & friendly.
      You have a great team! 

      The online feedback system works very well - kept us informed at all times. 

      Thank you to Jon-Paul - knowledgeable, clear, helpful, friendly, thoughtful, flexible.  Always prompt to get back and to keep us posted.

      Thank you to the person who showed our buyers round & was apparently enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the garden, which they appreciated.  
      Thank you to David Williams who took on the sale and was always helpful and knowledgeable and arranged our meeting with the buyers at the house.  Thank you to Neil who took over from David - prompt, helpful & friendly. 

      Thank you to all staff who showed potential buyers round the property.

      Helen Astley
    • Seller Testimonial

      Professional, helpful & courteous.
      All the individuals I had the pleasure to meet were professional, helpful and courteous. This not only includes Jon-Paul Brampton, Sally Fearon, Nick Wearmouth and David Williams who I dealt with personally, but all the staff who took my phone calls, emailed me and greeted me when I called in to the office. What impressed me the most, was the understanding shown in what was for me a very emotional time selling my parents' house.
