The Cookies we use on our Site are "analytical" cookies. They allow us to keep the digital products and services, easy to use and up-to-date and we use web analytics services to help us understand how people use them.

The information is anonymous and only used for statistical purposes. It allows us to track information, such as how many individual users we have and how often they visit our websites. It also helps us to analyse patterns of user activity and to develop a better user experience.

Web analytics data and cookies cannot be used to identify you as they never contain personal information such as your name or email address. However, if you have registered and signed into our Services we may combine information from your registration with the data we get from the web analytics service and its cookies (or similar technologies) to analyse how you and other people use our digital products and services in detail and, where you have consented to receive such communications, to send you email and other communications that might be of interest to you.

I can honestly say, that after dealing with so many estate agents, Olga is by far and away the most helpful and professional person I have dealt with. She really took the time to find out what I am looking for and came across in an very enthusiastic and genuine attitude. I would highly recommend anyone looking to buy or rent a property to contact Olga. You won't be disappointed
