“What great service and support we received from Nikki Bell! As a family living overseas but wanting to set roots back where we came from, we were fortunate to have Nikki Bell of Robert G Sinclair and Co. Ltd Solicitors recommended to us. Purchasing a house from distance is a tricky business but we found Nikki to be very responsive with any questions big or small. She explained each step in the process of buying a house clearly. She was helpful with checking out queries that were important to us when buying our home and she was happy to help. She took each questions seriously and made sure she took the time and effort to explore it fully and to provide a comprehensive answer.”- Tara Nixon
