"The dust has settled and we have now been living in Devon for six months, so I wanted to write to thank you for your help and guidance.
We were nearing the end of our tethers when Julie and I met you: the task of relocating home and business to Devon had become a real chore. No fun anymore! I was impressed with the patient way you got to know us and within the space of just a few meetings turned the onerous task back into an adventure once again.Your knowledge of Devon is encyclopaedic! There’s no other word for it; you seem to know every hamlet and village, as well as the glorious market towns that Devon has in abundance. We looked forward to exploring with you and when we found what is now our home, the negotiations and horse trading went so briskly and seamlessly that home buying was a pleasure.
As for the money? What I was prepared to offer for the house and what we ended up paying were different figures. Not only did you guide us to the right area and the right property, but you saved us money. The difference between what we paid and what we were prepared to pay more than covered your fee – so in fact, your services are free! I also valued your guidance on relocating my business and my staff and I are now happily settled in our Tavistock accommodation. Once again, your comments were succinct and pertinent. I too am in the service sector so appreciate receiving a value-adding experience. I think that's the best way to sum up our experience of Recoco: at every step you added value."

"Nigel worked with us for over 2 years to assist in a major family relocation from London to Devon. His approach is based on a clear understanding of his clients requirements which enables him to use his intimate knowledge of the areas that we were interested in – and also areas that we hadn't previously considered. We also found that our requirements changed over time as we got to know the areas a bit better and adjusted our expectations of what we could buy accordingly - Nigel was fantastic at working with us to identify what we really wanted and worked with us tirelessly through the process to a successful conclusion. We eventually completed on our property in 2010 after 2 long years of looking, in an area we had never considered. We love where we live and couldn't imagine being anywhere else – and it is thanks to Nigel's perseverance, knowledge ability to work in partnership with us that enabled us to achieve everything we wanted."

"The company's fee was insignificant. Nigel advised making a lower offer and carried the negotiations through to exchange. We actually made a saving!"
- Dr Grant McAree, Sept 2009
"We hadn't moved house for 30 years and had no idea where to start. After numerous abortive trips to Devon, and on the point of giving up, we came across the Recoco advert. Nigel came to see us at home in Sussex and took control.
One month later we were instructing solicitors on this wonderful house - a property we would have discounted from the details we were given. On paper it didn't fit any of our criteria but Nigel's creative foresight and excellent negotiating skills gave us the chance of a lifetime.
We are eternally grateful and would suggest to anyone the fees Nigel charges are worth every penny."
- TP, Sussex
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for your patience, humour and expertise. In our mind this is money well spent and you earned it many times over"

"This card expresses how we feel and we are so grateful to you for all your help, quiet advice and support. As the saying goes –we couldn’t have done it without you"

"We viewed about 30 properties in Devon before we met Nigel, but not one of them was a serious possibility. After Nigel became involved, we only viewed about 10 but we considered all of them. We were very impressed with the way he took time to get to know us and really find out what we wanted, and helped to guide us even when we werent quite sure ourselves.
He really does seem to know every little village in the area, and househunting went from being a bit of a headache to being an exciting adventure once again.
He also seems to know everyone and was able to show us properties before the ink was dry on the particulars. Nigel cheerfully goes the extra mile and weve ended up with the perfect property.
Even though we were making the purchase from a distance, it was all pretty stress free thanks to his help. We wouldnt hesitate to recommend Nigel to anyone looking to buy a home in Devon."
- Mark Hensman, Oct 2009
"Having worked with a number of property finders across the south of England, Nigel has proven through experience, a broad range of personal contacts and extensive knowledge of the South West, he can constantly deliver.
From initial search through negotiation with agents and solicitors, he has provided the most comprehensive and bespoke service for this demanding client."
- MR, London
"Nigel identified the perfect area for us enabling our various hobbies and commitments to be pursued and in an area that has so many like-minded people we have made some wonderful friends for life. Without Nigel, we would still be in Suffolk, very frustrated."
