      very professional
      I have bought and sold two properties through CJ Hole and found their services to be very professional. They have good local knowledge and the Westbury and Henleaze offices work as a team, so there are plenty of staff available for viewings and support.

      Within 24hrs of putting my last property on the market there were 22 viewings booked, with more to follow in the next few days. We went to best and final offers within 6 days of viewings starting, achieving above the asking price.
