    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      I would recommend you to anyone
      Mr B Jones - After contacting my neighbour, who had just sold their property with you, I took your contact details from them. From the first call and meeting Leanne face to face, I can honestly say that I have never dealt with a more professional person, from any of the many previous estate agents I have used; than the way you have treated me. I have found that Leanne is polite, courteous, knowledgeable, honest, and, extremely gifted in her role. You sold my property so quickly, (in one day)!! The sales particulars and the photographs you took were exceptional. In fact, everything you did to sell my property was done in the best possible way, and without any fuss. I would recommend you to anyone who was selling their property because I know they would be getting the right person to do the job.
