"I am a guarantor for my daughters property and I had to report a fault on her boiler I dealt with Natalie who was very professional and courteous. It was a absolute pleasure to deal with her she kept us informed of every conversation with the maintenance process and asked me to do the same if I hadn't heard anything. I only wish everyone I dealt with was as professional and helpful as her. Thank you so much."

A big thank you to you all."


"I would like to thank the whole team at Cowell- Norford, they recommended their financial adviser James who was excellent in sorting my mortgage and finding me the best deal. The rest of the team were all so helpful with the process until completion. I would like to thank everyone who worked there and i would definitely use them again, and recommend to anyone who is thinking of buying and selling their house. They do a lot for anyone who enquirers through them"

Cheryl Bayley

"Very proactive. When I sent off for a viewing for the property, she actively emailed more properties that matched my criteria which I was impressed with!! Most estate agents barely get back to you, or not bother at all. She was very helpful and made me feel confidant in the way she was dealing with my application."

Mark Stephens

"Francesca and the team sold my house within 6 weeks of initially advertising the property, they carefully selected the people who were viewing to ensure they were all in a position to buy rarther than time wasters, James sorted the new mortgage and insurances with little fuss, once my property sold Francesca drove the completion onto my new property acting on my behalf speaking to the entire chain of vendors, buyers and solicitors through to completion within 8 weeks. Absolutely fantastic. Thanks very much."

Now that I live in Manchester I'm renting a property myself and I must say that this has been an easy process. Kirsten is keeping my up to date every step of the way with updates with my upcoming rental. So far I've been very impressed with the service and can't wait to move in on December. Kirsten is very polite and knowledgable and knows exactly what step the process is up to. Thank you for making this easy."

"Natalie has taken out all the hard work involved with renting a property and liaising with tenants on my behalf. I feel I can trust Natalie with any outstanding issues as she always takes it upon herself to follow up any ongoing issues, keeping me updated on a regular basis. It is clear Natalie cares about delivering an excellent service and meeting the needs of both myself and the tenants. Natalie is professional and reliable, always endeavours to answer my questions and provide the advice I need. Natalie has made my experience with Cowell Norford a very positive one."


"Natalie has been my point of contact this summer during a particularly difficult time with a tenancy. Despite the frustrations of the legal system & the resulting slow paced eviction/repossession process Natalie has been 100% available whenever I have needed urgent advice & has been able to clarify the progress of every stage. She has been a pleasure to deal with."


"Danielle has been absolutely amazing! With two difficult Solicitors on either side of the dale, she's been extremely helpful and supportive with helping me purchase my property. If it wasn't for Danielle's help I'd have been completely stuck. Not to mention how friendly and polite she is. I really can't thank her enough."


"Cowell and Norford manage the letting of 2 properties I own. I have been using them for over 7 years and during that time have established a great working relationship with them and in particular with Deb Barnes. I have always found the company and Deb in particular to be helpful,efficient and professional at all times."
