"CP walker were my first choice as a letting agent as they were also the Estate agent I bought the property through several years ago. All of the staff were incredibly supportive then on what became a difficult and protracted purchasing process, so I was confident of excellent service on a landlord let arrangement. They very quickly found ideal tenants for my house last year and throughout the process offered great advice and support to both parties. Rex Walker in particular has been terrific and you couldn't want for a better advisor. I'd thoroughly recommend to all. [Let Only and now Managed Client of 2 years]"
