"Paul Holder has provided me with invaluable professional support over the past year. I was delighted with the result he achieved on my behalf - I could not have hoped for a similar outcome had I proceeded unaided."

“From day 1, I experienced nothing but kindness and efficiency from Parsons Sons and Basley during the sale of my property, which was completed in four months. I would certainly recommend them.”

"A very big thank you for such a quick sale and your part in a smooth completion - I can't believe that this went through so well without any further ado. Your service more than met with my expectations."

"Paul has been very helpful to me in advising on valuation and sale of a leasehold flat involving legal dispute with the freeholder who wished to buy it, and as a sale price negotiator. After preparing a report and valuation of a lease extension, Paul successfully negotiated the flat's sale price upwards of 50 percent over the freeholder's original offer. I would not hesitate to employ him again for any problematic property transaction; likewise any surveyor at Parsons Son & Basley who have now done two RICS Homebuyer surveys for me”
