“My family has used Cohen and Handler for a while now, however this was my first time using the service. I found the team a pleasure to work with. They were quick in their response time, provided me with extensive research and always easy to deal with. Their knowledge of the market was great and they understood the brief well, presenting me with great options for my search for a new apartment. So much so, that the first one I was shown was the one I ended up buying. All round a great service, team and experience.”
