"Throughout the whole process James was professional, well mannered and constantly going out of his way to keep us updated during the whole process. We are certain that without his hard work and commitment, we wouldn't have been in our new home before Christmas. Thanks again James, you are a credit to your profession"

We have had numerous properties going through during Covid, Helen has done her utmost to get them completed ASAP. Working against the Covid restrictions, other solicitors not being in the office, agents chasing all of the time, even mortgage advisors not helping the situation! Helen has kept her cool, juggled 3 properties, 3 agents, 3 vendors and me all mithering her to get these properties through. I really appreciate everything Helen and the team have done as always she has gone above and beyond and got the work done under pressure! I'll be back on the phone chasing the next property soon!!"
