But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what our customers have to say about us…

The service I received from James and Zoe at Charles Louis Homes was excellent. They guided me through the whole process of selling my house and kept me regularly updated. James and Zoe are extremely friendly and helpful and were always on hand if I had any questions. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Glenn Thornton

Can we possibly give more than 5 stars. Right from our initial phone call to the office to enquire about marketing our property both James and Zoe have gone above and beyond.
We are currently on lock down due to Covid 19 and even through this they have kept in contact (despite not being able to do viewings). Always letting us know what the market is like, whether there have been any enquiries about our property and sending us a report over from Rightmove.
We have now accepted an offer on our property despite still being in lock down and we really cannot fault James, Zoe and the rest of the team at Charles Louis Homes. If anyone is thinking of selling a property I’d highly recommend them.

Dianne Collier

Great service! Very professional from start to finish! James and Zoe had a solution for each challenge and been very helpful at all times. Even I have been abroad this never been a problem! I would recommend 100% to everyone.
