To Anne, Just a note to say thanks for all the help you gave us in finding our new house. Sorry it's been a while coming but we have now got ourselves straight and we both love the house and area and without your help we may not be here. If ever you’re in the area please pop in for a coffee it would be nice to see you again. Thanks again.

Mr & Mrs L

Anne, I have viewed a lot of properties in the last couple of weeks with many different agents and I must say how professional, courteous and knowledgeable you were on the viewing. It was quite refreshing. Keep up the good work.

Mr C

Ken Sorry it has taken so long to do this, but here is my letter of thanks. Please feel free to keep on file or use for new clients. I would like to thank, Country Properties for an EXCELLENT service in marketing, and selling my property. At all times they were professional and gave good advice, in these difficult economic times. They gave a realistic valuation and from the point I placed my house on the market, they were second to none. All viewings were followed by a follow-up call, informing me of the viewer’s feedback. The whole team at Barton Office were exceptional, especially Ken, who when the chain appeared, as if it was going to collapse, made phone calls to all, which ensured a successful exchange and completion. I would have no hesitation in using Country Properties, Barton Office again.
