Gillian has been very understanding of personal issues and knows exactly how to communicate with each and everyone of our possible purchasers. Anne-Marie, even calling us from home on a Sunday morning to update us! Keira is so wonderful too, showing great initiative and always making the relevant enquiries in an attempt to gain as much information as is possible regarding the sale of our home. We have only just become familiar with Caroline, also a very lovely , friendly and efficient member of your team. She, we believe , has been the lucky one as she has ‘escaped’ the vast majority of our journey with you!
