James Carden, Teignmouth - Branch Manager

Excellent service from beginning to end. All members of the Bradleys team I dealt with during the sale process were professional in all matters. They were calm when I became impatient! Just an excellent all round service! I have employed them in the past to sell another property and will use them again if the opportunity arises.
