We offer a full range of services across our three branches (strategically located in Bitterne, Woolston and Shirley) covering sales and lettings, land and new homes, mortgage and financial advice as well as surveys and professional valuations. The Field Palmer approach is very hands on because we understand that our customers want to see results and to be kept informed of any developments.
