Gemma King

"We found the survey to be very thorough and it went into great detail. It was provided to us extremely quickly and we were able to talk to the surveyor which we found very useful.  The whole process of booking and communication with Tamlyns was also first class. We would thoroughly recommend them"


"When we needed a valuation for our home we first went to the biggest local estate agents in our area, after that disappointment we read some reviews and picked Tamlyns. The team were responsive and helpful, they understood our needs and provided an appointment in just a couple of weeks. The assessor arrived exactly on time and performed the valuation quickly - they explained the timeline and left us feeling confident about the outcome. We were very pleased and if we have need of RICS agents in the future we will be calling Tamylns team first."
