At Kim Betts & Co our clients always come first, so we are always delighted to hear back from them, whatever they have to say! Here are a few reviews left from previous clients.

Kim Betts & Co

At a very stressful time, Kim really helped me. Taking care of the sale of my house in tricky circumstances. Kim and team were always on hand, easy to get hold of and super professional. Completely unfazed by any issues and alway able to find a solution. I was so happy with the service, it’s nice to be treated respectfully especially for me with little knowledge of the process, I felt at ease knowing Kim is always on top of things along with her friendly team.”

Rowena Preiss

“Kim and her team were amazing!!!! I’d been told they were slow by estate agents and would hold up our sale but on the supposed day of exchange she was the only one ready!!!!! Couldn’t recommend them enough and was half the price of others.”

Kerry Witchell

We used Kim for the conveyancing of our recent house sale and purchase. The service we received was excellent: easy communication, efficient, fast response to questions and all issues that arose in both the sale and purchase were quickly and effectively resolved. She also provided a quick and efficient will service for us both, providing clear and simple advice to help us sort out a mutual will. Would not hesitate to recommend her service.
