very carefully to our requests and then presented us with a portfolio
containing an extensive range of properties to select.
We were given advice and knowledge of every property within the portfolio,
finally narrowing it down to 5 that fulfilled our requirements. Norman
then arranged a viewing day to see the selected properties. The
day was structured very well with a professional approach and gave
us both an insight to all properties and the region. We subsequently viewed
our dream home and put an offer in which was accepted the following
morning. The legal process was straight forward with the help of Norman

to strict budget, we needed to find the right property with a minimum
of trial and error. We also had very specific requirements to provide
accommodation for my elderly mother. Carol did a splendid job of filtering

and their team, we are now happily established in our new home and I really
can't thank them enough".
