"We cannot thank you enough for all your efforts and friendly advice my wife and I received during the purchase of Wisteria Barn. Moving our family down to Devon was a little stressful, however, you both made it far more pleasurable due to your kind words and help. Our purchase took longer than we had hoped, yet it could have taken far longer without your help jostling it along. Your responses to our enquiries were always prompt, if not immediate and was a ray of sunshine in all the grey haze the solicitors produced. Then to top it off you were there at completion with our key, a bottle of bubbly, and a surprise gift. We could not have asked for better service. If only the rest of the chain had you involved we would have moved in months ago. We would highly recommend you to anyone and wish you all the success for the future that you truly deserve, thanks again."
