    In this time of Covid, Thorntons Estate Agent has been consistent, professional and most helpful. The photo/videographer they used was extremely good and understood the property. We had the added complexity of the sale being for a death-estate with split executory overseas. Thorntons Estate Agent handled this issue with ease. Overall, it was a comfortable experience.
