Featured Properties

Field Palmer have been fantastic during my property sale, I only wish I'd used them from the start. Leyton and Sonny arranged more viewings in three months, than my previous agent did in a year, resulting in two offers in one week. Lia, progressing the sale, has given me important advice, information and reassurance that I didn't get from my conveyancer. I trusted everything she said, and appreciated all the updates. I can't recommend Field Palmer enough. I really feel like they acted in my interests (unlike all the other parties involved in the move) and were on my side. Thank you so much for everything you've done!
