What others say about Sally:
"We used Sally Dilks for the French negotiations and Andrew Jackson to sell the UK property (in the same office) and they were both brilliant. Very professional, explaining all issues or possibilities so that we understood exactly what we were undertaking…..I have already recommended her to a colleague who is also buying in France as we were that impressed"
Mr and Mrs Belcher
"The feedback from all concerned was unanimous, namely your thoroughness during the compromis and prior to finally completion made the meeting with the notaire one of the most straightforward and time efficient ever. Thanks once again for all your help and effort in making it so easy."
