Latest testimonials

"I should like to thank you personally for the attention to detail which you gave to this transaction. I must say that when you said that you would be on holiday for a fortnight or so between exchange of contracts and completion, I did think we might possibly encounter a few problems. That was not to be the case, which confirms that you had tied up any possible loose ends before handing it over to David Wells. This sale has gone well...Thank you."
Mr S
