Hi Helen
We would like to thank both yourself and the team for assisting us in our purchase.

But a really BIG thanks to you Helen.  You knew our disappointment when our offer was not accepted on the bungalow, so that was very thoughtful of you.  The advice you gave us suggesting we put our own property on with Intercounty in Harlow ASAP was brilliant as we now know that gave us the edge when so many offers came in for the property.  Your other suggestion to use your conveyancing team too was an excellent idea, keeping everything under one roof. Eway was so simple to use and made every thing move along at a much faster pace, leaving hardly anything to go through the usual postal system.

I will certainly be recommending Intercounty to all my friends and family

Take care and good wishes for the future
Steve and Rose
