"Because of changes in function of my company I needed to sell an industrial property and move into new offices. After considering a couple of Estate Agents I was pleased to engage Shoulers to act on my behalf. They acted with speed and efficiency and I was delighted that the property sold within days and at a very acceptable price. I would recommend them and in particular Helen Montague unreservedly."
