Thanks to all of the team at Oliver Miles for making the sale of our house as smooth and comfortable as possible. Your professional and friendly assistance has been greatly appreciated with easy to understand updates right through the process.

Oliver Miles handled the purchase of our new property. It was a long and challenging transaction. Oliver Miles demonstrated great professionalism in progressing the transaction and using local contacts to keep moving things along and keeping all parties informed.

We are very grateful for their help and support and wouldn't hesitate to recommend and would certainly use Oliver Miles in the future. Many thanks to Jackie, John and the team.

I have just sold a property with the help of Oliver Miles Estate Agent. I can't thank the staff enough for their help and support over the last few months.

They have first class knowledge of the local market; they are all very professional, and always friendly and helpful. Jackie in particular was an absolute lifeline to me at times: always supportive and very, very efficient.

I would certainly use their services again, and I would not hesitate to recommend them. They will help to make buying / selling your property so much easier (let's face it - moving is not the most stress-free thing to do!). Thank you all at Oliver Miles.
