“My husband and I had been looking for a new home for around 9 months. We finally found the house we wanted however the deal was that we had to complete in approximately 4 weeks so we needed a solicitor who could make this happen.

I had met Barbara at networking events and she came highly recommended. We instructed her to act for us and I was impressed with her expertise. She considered every eventuality that we would need including in the contract and got the seller to change quite a few clauses to suit and protect us. Overall the whole purchase went very smoothly and we were highly delighted with Barbara’s service.

I would highly recommend Barbara and have actually done so already. Having moved into our new home, next door was then sold and we gave the new purchasers Barbara’s details. They have also now completed and were happy with the service they received.

So if you’re thinking of moving home think ‘Barbara Jacobs’ - she does a fantastic job!”
