My experience with Stone was very pleasant. Ellis was very attentive, professional and on time. He answered all my questions, was very knowledgeable on what he was selling and it felt more like a friendly honest chat rather than an aggressive sales pitch. I recommend Stone to everyone.
Professional and friendly service from Laurence Cook who looked after us. He understands and focuses on the most essential parts of our requirements, and make relevant recommendations. Laurence would follow-up diligently but without being pushy. I'd recommend Laurence at Stone Real Estate for anyone looking for a new property.
Very caring and professional team, especially Tom Hilder. They take the time to understand my needs and requirements, and help me to make my decision on one of the biggest purchases in my life! I would highly recommend them for anyone looking for buying a property.
