Further Information


Sam Lapworth has started taking care of our properties I cannot tell you how much our experience has improved. She is utterly fantastic, I am a big believer in giving the positive with the negative and people only ever seem to get in touch to complain these days so I would like to get in touch to say how pleased we are with the service that Sam gives.

She is incredibly courteous over email and on the phone. She is conscientious and has NEVER palmed us off. She is an absolute credit to the company and I really can’t thank you enough for getting her to sort out our properties.
