Mr & Mrs S D Yaxley
We sold our high-value, detached property through Thomas Merrifield Wallingford and received a first-class service from start to finish. Craig was exceptional: knowledgeable, courteous, easy to deal with, responsive and tenacious, ensuring the perfect outcome for all. We intend to use Thomas Merrifield again and highly recommend them.
Rachel Edwards
As a buyer only whilst dealing with TM Wallingford, we found them to be incredibly supportive and communicative with the whole process. We are grateful for their effort to get the purchase – and the rest of the chain – organised!
Charlotte Day
Wonderful staff who were easy to contact, helpful and responsive to all our needs. Renting through TM was easy and painless and I would recommend TM to anyone looking in the Oxfordshire area. Thank-you Susan and team!
