“It really makes sense to have a professional local team who know the market and how to deal really effectively with issues that might arise in the selling process. Amy followed up with everyone involved in the chain, the buyers themselves, as well as their agents and solicitors. We chose Milne Moser solicitors too and highly recommend them, as they followed up all the complicated legal matters and the agent and solicitor worked really well together.”
Mr A, Kendal – October 2021
“My partner and I purchased a property that was on the market with Milne Moser. Helen McCartney was outstanding in every way. She kept us up to date, communicating regularly and before my Solicitor updated me. She always had time to answer questions and clearly cares and loves her work. I wish that I had used Milne Moser when selling my property. I can 100% recommend them, you will not be disappointed!”
