Excellent service and support throughout the process of selling our care home. I cannot speak highly enough of Kirill and his team at Clarke Willmott. They are knowledgeable, both responsive and proactive, and above all very approachable people. They helped us navigate a sometimes stressful process with determination, fairness and guidance, all delivered with a straightforward, understandable approach. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kirill and Clarke Willmott to family, friends and acquaintances. Thank you!

Mr and Mrs Rogers

Kirill Bingham and the entire team at Clarke Willmott were outstanding. There were complexities to the deal that we could not have imagined and these were accommodated with creativity and robustness. We knew all along that with Kirill we were in a very safe pair of hands. He was always available immediately on the end of the phone when we needed him, and he was pro-active and informative every step of the way. This frequent and accessible level of communication was appreciated beyond measure. We have no hesitation in recommending the services of Kirill, Bethan Evans and everyone else at Clarke Willmott in all such dealings.

Kevin Terrill, co-Founder, Fargo Systems Ltd.

I wish to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for helping me through a very tough acquisition. The Clark Willmott Team in general and you specifically were always very supportive throughout the process. You were very thorough in your work while understanding some of very deal specific sensitivities that I needed you and your team to be aware of from the sales time. A big thank you to you all. I will be using your services again and recommending you to my friends and business partners.
