"We used CP Walker for the sale of our house. The service provided was excellent, they were very quick to get the property on the market and arrange viewings. Mark Finnigan was a fantastic support throughout the sale process; he was very responsive, getting back to us on queries instantly and offered advice and reassurance. We would highly recommend Mark and his team."
