Ashley and the team were extremely professional and patient as some totally unforeseeable issues emerged during our move/s this year. We found Ashley to be very reassuring and knowledgeable as we overcome our hurdles.

I was extremely satisfied with the service from start to finish. The valuation was great giving good tips on what work if any needed doing to get property ready. Ashley was extremely knowledgeable in what was popular in the area and got me the best price in the street ever. My house sold in just 1 week for the full asking price but unfortunately the buyer was unable finance the property. This was handled with great care and expertise and was remarketed swiftly. The process of selling a home can be very stressful but I was kept informed constantly with information on viewings and subsequent feedback. Nothing was ever a bother and every question I had was answered promptly. Many thanks to Ashley and the team and I would have no hesitation in recommending yourselves to others in the future.

I was very pleased with the service received from Templeton Robinson and in particular Ashley Black who was professional yet approachable throughout the whole process renewing my faith in Estate Agents which had been somewhat damaged by previous encounters with other firms.
