“This is the 2nd time we chose to use AWB and part of it was knowing we’d have one person properly looking after us in selling our house. In our case this was Liz and the communication in what was often an anxious time (Selling our home) helped us understand some things that we could control and those that we depended on others for.  Keeping up the momentum always felt like the only thing we could do something about and AWB always ensured they represented our desire to see things through with other solicitors, Estate Agents and so on. Thanks to the team but especially Liz.
