Client Testimonial:

"We were delighted with the service we received from Myra at Wright & Crawford, when we first went to view a property, we were interested in buying, Myra was very accommodating over the telephone and we arranged a viewing that same night. She was very helpful and after showing us round the property allowed my fiancé and I, time to wander round. As we fell in love with the house we asked if we could view it on a further few occasions at short notice and this was never a problem. Myra went out of her way to accommodate us and nothing was too much bother. She was very professional and also enthusiastic and answered any questions we had about the property. She has a wonderful friendly nature and made us feel at ease from the moment we met her. We were absolutely over the moon when we found out that our offer had been accepted and we want to thank Myra so very much for all help on the road to us getting our "dream House". -Colin & Alison

She was a great ambassador for Wright & Crawford. Throughout our dealings my wife and I found Myra, to be honest, reliable, hard-working and conscientious." -Mr & Mrs G Watson
