“B B & C helped me with the purchase of my first property in East Sussex. They made what seems a daunting task seem so easy, and at any stage if there was something that I didn’t understand I was able to email, or call where they would respond swiftly and put everything into easily understandable terms…Throughout the whole process they continually did their due diligence, and an amazing job.”
