What the Clients Say: 

Kirstie is a true professional. From the very start of my property purchase she showed her knowledge, skills and commitment for the task – which in itself provided great reassurance. I remember her saying straight away how much she loves her job, which is not only an aspiring thing to hear, but also entirely true! Throughout the conveyancing process I could feel her enthusiasm and a clear willingness to help solve any issues that cropped up. As a first-time buyer, it is inevitably quite a nerve-racking experience, but the fact Kirstie was so helpful, organised, and responsible meant any stress was minimised. And she worked with such good grace – both by email and on the phone.

Property conveyancing is complex and has various moving parts; while some people may want only to deal with their own area, Kirstie clearly takes a strategic view and can understand and relate to each aspect of the process. This really makes a difference in making sure delays are not allowed to creep in unnecessarily. She is bright, able, thorough – and frankly a gem of a conveyancer. I cannot thank and recommend her enough.

Mr A Teddy

I genuinely couldn’t have asked for a better service. Kirstie dealt with my house purchase from start to finish, alleviating any additional stresses you may normally face when buying a house. Kirstie is pragmatic in her work and dealt with my purchase as though I was her only client. Kirstie would always respond to my calls and emails as soon as possible and not once did I have to chase her. Her calm and sensible approach to problem solving is extremely helpful when communicating with others. Kirstie is extremely attentive which is not something I have experienced before with a solicitor. I have used Kirstie for two house purchases now and wouldn’t consider going to anyone else. I would highly recommend her work to anyone looking for an extremely knowledgeable and proactive solicitor.
