"Recently purchased a property with was advertised through Andrew Craig. Andrea has kept me updated throughout the buying process and been amazing to deal with. Andrea has always been very approachable and pro-active, nothing is too much trouble! She’s even listened to my frustrations with regards to our own estate agent when selling and not being kept up to date! (wish we had chose Andrew Craig as ours were useless!). Thanks so much Andrea for keeping me sane though out the process and going that extra mile! Your amazing! ⭐️"
