"Recently I engaged EHB to sell my house in Leamington, I like most people asked 3 or 4 local agents, but I chose EHB because I felt they understood the local Leamington market and they made me feel a wanted customer. During the process they did nothing to change my mind. I felt they knew what good customer support was and will I use them again? Absolutely! Mr Skuse "
