Charlotte Melia was so helpful on the telephone in discussing the useful services provided by the Property Buying Company. No hard sell, just professional advice discussed in an open and friendly manner to (in my case) someone with little knowledge of options to gat a fast sale guaranteed. I'd definitely recommend speaking to this team, and I would do so again in future if I had this need for speed again. Many thanks Charlotte!

The service was easy to use but they couldn't get to the figures we required. Fast and responsive with no pushy sales

Abbie wills was absolutely amazing! Throughout a journey of ups and downs she has been the one to be chasing both sides of solicitors making sure we had a quick sale. Customer service Abbie has provided has been absolutely outstanding. Would recommend highly.
