From start to finish every member of the team was amazing. Cripps managed to help me navigate a complex lease extension, flat sale and house purchase that would be beyond many firms' ability. Throughout the entire process they explained every step in clear detail and offered support whenever needed. I couldn't recommend them highly enough.
As always, a true professional and ever comforting voice of reason and ultimate inspiration. Thanks a million for your wonderful efficiency, ever present kindness, guidance and attention to details.
