J O’Donohoe

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the outstanding customer service we received when renting the residential property from Escrick Park.

When dealing with you direct, we have on every occasion, found you to be professional, helpful, courteous,and organised.

My list of compliments could go on and on as the care and pride you show in your work is a pleasure to see. I should also point out that when I have spoken to either one of the girls in the office their attitude and care is equally as professional. They have always been cheerful and helpful and made us feel our discussions were important to them (a rare thing in modern business). I am a strong believer in using and supporting local businesses where possible. The attitude and care you and your team have shown our family has re-affirmed this belief."
