“I would not hesitate to recommend Sophie to anyone, the most efficient solicitor you will ever meet! Many thanks for your excellent work and I look forward to working with you again in the future.”
“Sophie Chapman who dealt with the sale of my property was brilliant. She was efficient, approachable and was great at communicating at all times throughout the entire process. Highly recommended. Thank you Sophie!”
“Great comms, always available to talk to us over the phone (a rarity with most lawyers…), and was quick to respond to any queries/questions. Sophie generally dealt with everything on our transactions really quickly and I imagine the process would have been even longer without her. Given that we were quite worried for most of the process Sophie also did a great job resssuring us. Sophie is a great asset to Saracens and we’d return without hesitation if we were to move house again!”
“Fantastic service – Sophie Chapman’s communication throughout the sale of our property was excellent.”
“I cannot recommend Saracens Solicitors highly enough. Sophie Chapman, who was assigned to support me through the sale process of my flat was excellent. The communication, clarity on requests, speed of response, and general support was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. I felt at ease during the whole process and her help and guidance made it absolutely seamless. Thank you!”
