What Carol's clients say
“We were very impressed by Carol when she acted for us when we moved to Norfolk in 2013. We needed to move again last year to be nearer to amenities. Carol was incredibly efficient and we much appreciated being copied into emails to the estate agents and solicitors. The estate agents dealing with our sale and purchase really valued being kept in the picture. Sadly we have also incurred delays by our vendor's solicitor not communicating promptly or correctly. This simply made us appreciate even more the superb service provided by Carol and her team. It is amazing how promptly Carol sends or replies to emails. She helped us overcome various issues, and also helped us keep our sanity when our vendor pulled out on the day of exchange, twice! When we then saw our new home, we had to exchange within four weeks to be accepted in front of other interested buyers. This was achieved, apart from having to chase the vendors solicitors! We have bought and sold twenty four homes and have no hesitation in saying Carol is the most professional and efficient solicitor we have used.”

“We truly couldn't have got through this process without you. It's clear you have worked really hard and quickly to obtain all information needed to proceed with this process in a timely manner. We're extremely happy with your service and would recommend you to others! ”
- Katie, March 2016
“Thank you for your impeccable service and attention to detail.”
- DG, November 2015
“Can I please say how useful it has been to be copied in in all correspondence, such a help, thank you. I will certainly be recommending your services to my clients in future.”
- Tracy at Porter and May Estate Agents, August 2015
“Hi Carol, Thank you so much for all your hard work regarding the sale of number 19 and purchase of 21 Main Road, and we really appreciate your level of communication. Moving is never free from stress, however your part in all this has been. We have felt fully up to date with the various stages, and you have been extremely approachable; a quality we have found lacking in our previous experience of solicitors when conveyancing. I cannot emphasise how much we appreciate your help and professionalism and we will, should legal advice/action be needed in the future, come back to you as well as recommend you to all of our friends and acquaintances. Thank you again. ”
- GJ & DM, August 2015
“I can see why my sister recommended you. Your speed and communication has been outstanding and at no point have you held the process up. I am very grateful for this because I've heard so many horror-stories from friends and colleagues about frustrating conveyancing. I wouldn't hesitate recommending you.”
- Mr. Phillips, August 2014
“Thank you for your very efficient service. We were very pleased and I love the card you all sent. We will be using you in the future and will certainly recommend you to friends and family.”
- Gill M, September 2012
“Thank you also for your efficiency and professionalism throughout the whole sale process. It has been a pleasure dealing with you.”

“We asked Chesterton Humbert to recommend a solicitor as we needed to find a local one. We have found Carol to be extremely efficient and friendly in a very professional manner. Carol exchanged contracts within 3 weeks. She copied us in to all her emails to the estate agents and solicitors and we have never been so well informed. Since selling our bungalow near Stamford we have moved further away but we have felt totally in touch via emails and the odd phone call. As a 'remote consultant solicitor' we believe that Carol has provided superb service on behalf of your firm. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to our friends and geography is clearly not an issue in today's world. We hope that we enjoy retirement in our cottage near Holt in Norfolk for many years but wouldn't hesitate to instruct Carol for our next move.”
