Sarah’s approach to supporting clients through transactions is to explain things in plain English, removing legalese and jargon.

"Excellent experience selling our home through Switalskis. We worked with Sarah Cookson and Lisa Billingham and they were responsive and helpful throughout our interactions. They took the time to speak to us when we had questions and helped us push the buyer’s solicitor when things were delayed. I highly recommend them and with be advising friends/family to retain Switalskis whenever they need a solicitor!"
