You're always in good company

Christie & Co has provided valuable advice to clients within our specialist sectors for over 80 years; here's just a few that have shared the success.

Jon Patrick provided us with a professional and helpful service. From our initial meeting, he gave us good advice about the procedure and during the process he was always available, regularly checked in on how we were getting on, guided us through the offers process and pushed things along to completion. The process was swifter than we expected and the sale price exceeded our expectations
