      Everyone was excellent to deal with
      Everyone was excellent to deal with, but special mentions to Cathy and Alix, who were unwaveringly patient and kind, Rob for going the extra mile with help and advice and by no means least, Tracie for being an absolute star, always smiling and keeping everything stress-free!

      Stuart Middleton
    • Seller Testimonial

      Tracie is by far and away the best thing about our whole moving process. I'm actually rather sad I won't have an excuse for our almost daily catch ups. She smoothed the whole process for us, which at times was far from smooth in its progression, but she made sure everything came together for us and we are now only a couple of days away from moving in to our beautiful new home. I am so grateful to her for absolutely everything she did for us, she really does go above and beyond.

      Helen Nielsen

      Tracie was professional, communicative, supportive and understanding. Now I have my dream home, I'm sad not to have reason to contact her anymore.
