We have just sold our house through FSB and have been very pleased with the service we received from Tom and his team. We also bought our previous house through FSB and they worked very hard with this sale. I would fully recommend them and use them again.

Friendly, professional and proactive. Teresa, Becky and the team at Charmouth went above and beyond to help us through a complicated house sale and purchase. They were patient and c ommitted throughout the process. They have those important ingredients when things get tricky - skill, determination and a (professional) sense of humour.Would highly recommend.
