"The level of communication I've received throughout purchase and sale has been above and beyond that of other agents I've worked with. On the sell side there is continuous feedback and their market valuations are spot on. On the buy side they run the negotiation between buyer and vendor seamlessly. If you are buying or selling anything on Yaxley, Farcet or Stilton, this should be your first port of call.Mr R , Cambridgeshire - William H Brown Yaxley, Cambridgeshire.
