Relationships that last

Lesley has been an absolute star. She dealt with the purchase of my house which was a complicated purchase.  She put in excess effort for us.  I have dealt with Cullen Kilshaw before and have not been disappointed with their professional services. Thanks again.

We have just sold our property through Cullen Kilshaw, Hawick.

The process has been handled in a professional manner from preparation and advertising by Gavin, and prompt legal service by Lesley.

The experience of selling my property was daunting at first, but the care and professionalism shown by Catherine and Leona was exceptional. From the first contact right through to the confirmation and sale I was kept informed, felt completely at ease that they had everything under control and most importantly had my best interests at the forefront of the sale. Easily contactable, reliable and pleasant to deal with, I can’t speak highly enough about my experience and would recommend them to family and friends.

As a first time buyer I would like to thank Hannah in Selkirk for all her help with the purchase of my first home.

Hannah was absolutely amazing.  Her advice and guidance was invaluable.  I was kept informed every step of the way.  Hannah was very reassuring and explained everything in detail to me.  Nothing was too much trouble.

Can’t thank you enough.

This was our first dealing with Cullen  Kilshaw. When we went to discuss selling our late mothers property, all the staff were extremely compassionate to our situation. From the outset everything was explained in detail and we were kept updated at every stage of the process. Once we obtained a successful offer, everything was expedited quickly, maintaining a professional approach and again we were informed of any progress in a timely manner. I cannot recommend the staff at the Hawick office enough. My sister and I were extremely impressed with the team and if we were to ever need their services again, we would not hesitate to use them. Absolutely fantastic service.

In the last 4 years I have had several dealings with Cullen & Kilshaw and in particular Zoe Duff who dealt with some things for my Dad (who has early dementia).  Zoe was professional and was patient and explained everything to my Dad so as he understood everything.  Ruth Montgomery dealt with some further legal issues for my Dad, Ruth was professional and patient and made the process easy and stress free.  I felt that I was treated with respect and a professional manner as well as a friendly nature.  I thoroughly recommend Cullen and Kilshaw for all your legal needs.
