"We have recently purchased a property in Kingswear, Dartmouth. We bought the property through The Coastal House, Estate Agents We would highly recommend The Coastal House as an agent. We live a considerable distance away from Dartmouth and I am sure purchasing the property would have been far more difficulty had we not had the fantastic customer service from Michele and Nikki. They both went the extra mile. We will most definitely be recommending The Coastal House to our friends"
