      I would recommend to ANYONE

      '' Having first spoken to Phil nearly 2 months ago I was surprised by his confidence in selling my property at the suggested asking price! I am now happy to say he & the team there have achieved a pretty close sale price, not bad in the current climate! I lost count of the number of viewings we had here, I think down to the photographic quality but overall a very professional reliable service I would recommend to ANYONE I know. Many thanks Phil & the Thatcham team!! Roger''
