What our customers say...
Used Wards Gravesend and received an excellent service. Stacey was particularly proactive keeping me up to date at all times on the sale of my property. Geoff the Branch Manager was also very helpful. The whole process has gone smoothly and thanks to Stacey was stress free.
The process has been great from start to finish in selling our property. The staff at the Snodland branch have kept us updated at every step of the way. Would certainly recommend.
