Laura Carter and Timothy Steele – Thank you to Tim and Laura for their fantastic supportive service in very difficult times.

Ms R R – Basildon, May 2021

Caroline McCullagh & Tim Steele – We have used Palmers services several times over the years and to say we are delighted with their services is an understatement. Most recently we have used them for conveyancing where our case was handled by Caroline McCullagh at the South Woodham Ferrers office. In absolutely every aspect we found her to be highly approachable and professional, most especially when we hit redoubled waters due to others in the chain not pulling their weight. Caroline & her secretaries were always immediately available either by telephone or email to respond rapidly to our enquiries or keep us fully up to date on a situation which has now reached a happy conclusion. Three years ago we had business with Palmers which was handled by Tim Steele, also at South Woodham Ferrers, and we had absolutely the same experience with him. We hold Palmers in the highest regard and would recommend their services without reservation.

Mr & Mrs Tyas – East Hanningfield, July 2018
