Awards and Memberships
Cara has been fantastic and we would absolutely recommend Birketts. Having had a bad experience with another firm, our experience with Cara could not have been more opposite. Cara took the time to explain the process clearly and could not have been more accommodating in ensuring our house purchase was completed within the tight timeframe.
