What Our Clients Say

I recently sold my flat with Fortis and their service has been excellent. The price compares very favorably with other estate agents but the service was first class. The photos were excellent and they were very prompt at getting it on the market. I was always kept up to date and it was great having a local office on the doorstep. I would definitely recommend them.

Andrew Knight

I have recently sold my house with Fortis and cannot fault their service. I purchased the same house from them 5 years ago, after seeing what estate agents were offering when it came to sell the house, I decided to stick with Fortis. They are friendly, unimposing, so efficient and quick! I loved how they continuously communicated with me at each step, they are so professional. When I next need an estate agent, I will be using them again without a doubt. Thank you Fortis!
