By using Templeton Robinson we had more viewings in the first week than we ever had. Moreover the feedback was tremendous with all viewers being telephoned the next day for their opinions, with these comments then being relayed to us. Not only that, all first viewings were conducted by your staff, only second viewings being conducted by ourselves. Also all phone calls about the property were logged and sent by email to us.
The strange thing was, all the companies were charging the same commission! All in all a fantastic service, don't try the rest, use the best.

Nestling on a mature site of nearly a quarter of an acre in the Gilnahirk Hills above Belfast, this delightful cottage exudes an appealing warmth and character.
Extended and sympathetically modernised by the current owners, there is the option of three or even four bedrooms.
The well-appointed kitchen is open plan to a sitting room making it an ideal focal point for modern living.
Externally the lovely gardens enjoy considerable privacy afforded by an excellent degree of natural screening.
