1st class service

Every effort was made to assist me and explanations were of the highest order at all times both in meeting and on the telephone.

Heather Smith provided a very professional, comprehensive and helpful service. Thank you.

Efficient but friendly, helpful with clear explanations of what information is required, and the process being undertaken.

Heather dealt with my requests with clear, concise explanations with courtesy and respect.  Completely professional.

I would like to thank Heather and her secretary for the kind and considerate way they dealt with us, especially to my husband with his limited vision. It was very much appreciated.

Heather Smith has been very thorough and kept me fully up-to-date and given me good advice.

Very efficient and knowledgeable service.

“Very knowledgeable and professional. Efficient and friendly. Very impressed.”

“Have used Hart Reade services twice now and am very satisfied with the service you provide, always very friendly and approachable. Would certainly recommend to others.”

The time taken by Heather Smith to ensure that I was made fully aware of all the changes (some necessary whilst others were taken on the advice given) could not have been more worthwhile.

Miss Smith is always very approachable and ‘goes the extra mile’

Heather demonstrated sensitivity and empathy in approaching what is a difficult situation. Discussing Wills and the particular circumstances facing us. She was also very thorough with an impressive knowledge of the subject and legislative updates. Thank you.

We found Heather to be so helpful and friendly and dealt with all our questions very professionally. Would willingly recommend both Heather and your firm to anybody.

I found Heather and Lynn to be very approachable and helpful.
