James provided an excellent service and top notch advice
Excellent job James. Thank you for your patience and guidance and for settling my case.
James Hodgson was excellent throughout the sale and purchase of our house. He kept us well informed throughout the process.
James was excellent, and I would definitely recommend Wilkinson Woodward and him.
Maureen and James treated my case with the utmost integrity, 100% professional at all times and made me feel very comfortable.
James Hodgson was extremely quick to return my initial enquiry and provided succinct, easily understandable and expert professional advice. The level of service and advice was second to none. Many thanks!
We would like to thank you for all your hard work and diligence on our case. We understand that this was an extremely unusual case and can only thank you again for your understanding and empathy with our plight.
For the first time in almost three years, we now feel that we have been freed from the beautiful house that became a prison. We could not have wished for a better outcome; we have just completed on the sale of the property and can begin a new chapter.
The quality of your service has been second to none. Your communications with us – even when there was nothing to report – was priceless in helping us to be able to cope with the huge amount of stress we were experiencing. No words can express our thanks. Could you also please on these thanks to Robert Toone. Thank you, James
