  • Hannah Weir

    A friend recommended Jo to me 3 years ago when I first started looking for a house. Over the whole 3 years Jo has been on the end of the phone whenever I’ve come close to buying and she’s been fantastic - patient, warm and full of good advice. Finally we recently bought and we ended up working with Dawn as well who was equally brilliant. Attentive, down to earth and flexible. Both made the mortgage maze a breeze and I’d highly recommend. Thanks to both of you!
  • Kirsten McLay
