Whilst we weren’t able to complete a sale for different reasons the service was excellent! Quick response; no sales pressure; very polite and informative! Would like to think we could do business in the future! Highly recommend! Thank you!

Day light robbery, should be thoroughly ashamed at attempt to steal my home for a pittance, preying on people who are vulnerable, the offer made was derisory and way off the mark of local valuations

Nick was very helpful and friendly. He explained the process in details. I am still in process of selling and so far I feel really comfortable knowing I can count on Nick. I wish every service I am receiving in life would be like that. Definitely I would recommend.
