Andrew is highly personable, thinks creatively and adheres to very high standards. If I had to pick the thing I like most, I would say that Andrew has an excellent understanding of what we, as his clients, require (much better than we do!) and doesn't allow us to compromise. That only comes with considerable experience. He identified a property for us, which, on the face of it, met all of our requirements. Whilst we were keen, the more he got to know us, the more Andrew encouraged us to exercise caution and, ultimately, restraint. Andrew identified an alternative property, at less than half the value, which turned out to be far more appropriate for our young family. Eighteen months on, we are absolutely delighted.
Good evening Charlie
Just a quick note to thank you for all of the excellent work you’ve put forth in helping us to find our dream English Countryside Home! Alicia and I really enjoyed working with you and will be sure to refer you and CKD more broadly to any friend looking to go down a similar path.
I strongly urge that you do not consider making a purchase without instructing them to act for you.
Never has writing such a large cheque given me so much pleasure.
One of the best things about working with CKD is that it is not part of a large corporation where my information would be shared across the company.
CKD are not frightened of telling you what you may not want to hear, but this is what I most valued about them. It is a rare characteristic these days.
It was a pleasure to see you in action; the memories will stay with me forever. I think I have at last met my match!
And what a success! Thank you again.
If the grouse come back, I've got a great deal; if they don't, I've brought a pup." Three seasons later the first day yielded over 250 brace.
You have been quite, quite remarkable throughout and I cannot thank you enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I would like to congratulate you on the outstanding advice which you gave. I spend my life giving financial advice to major corporations that require us to take a view as to markets. I have seldom seen something play out so close to your original advice. Well done!
They always seem to have advance information about the market.
They have been involved in all the big grouse moor deals one way or another in recent years.
I must congratulate you on this brilliant deal. It has been a pleasure dealing with you.
We would like to congratulate you on delivering a fantastic estate to us. The experience of working with you and the CKD team, before, during, and after the purchase has been outstanding and extremely impressive. I personally can't thank you enough. And look forward to further opportunities in the future.
following a family bereavement, Charlie Evans was approached to steer the family through the sale of the family farm. He expertly guided on all aspects from the appointment of agents, solicitors and lotting all the way to the correct apportionment of funds with the added complication of the country in lockdown due to Covid. We had an excellent result, the farm sold and most importantly, the family still talking! Many thanks.
