      Sam Ward has been absolutely amazing
      Sam Ward has been absolutely amazing, I cannot praise him enough for everything he has done to get us to exchange/completion. Through his frequent communication, he has kept the chain moving despite the many challenges. He has kept everyone fully informed of any updates and resolving any issues promptly and in a manner that satisfies all parties involved. My buyer has also shared the exact same sentiments with his dealings with Sam and has often expressed that he's much more impressed with Ashtons than his own estate agent. Sam is a real asset and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ashtons to friends/family based on the professional, knowledgeable and proactive service received.
