They were the best value for money and provided excellent customer service. 

House fox estate agents were brilliant throughout the process of selling our house. They were the best value for money and provided excellent customer service. Neil was always on hand when needed and was very quick to sort any issues and respond. I have also been on viewings with Neil and he we thought he was very genuine and didn't pile on the pressure like some other agents. Would recommend without hesitation.
