January 2021 - Holiday Home & Business Investment
We have used Victoria and from start to finish and the experience has been nothing but 1st class, we were looking at many options to help us find our holiday home, but we went with Victoria as the other options were very expensive and for the same service not worth pursuing. The professional advice from Victoria has been the main benefit (apart from the purchase itself. She advised on pricing, locations and supported us all the way with many decisions.
We can't thank her enough and would happily recommend or provide a reference.

November 2020 – Holiday Home Search
We used Cornwall Property Finders in the early days of our search for the perfect Cornish home. From the outset, Victoria was most friendly and helpful. She spent considerable time in conversation with us to find out the criteria we had in mind, and to explain the ways she could proceed and help us with the search. She was quick to contact estate agents and to get us onto their books and, as a result of this, we were aware of properties early in the marketing process. There were weekly progress reports and Victoria always made time for phone conversations if we had any queries. Once we had found a property, Victoria checked in with us regularly to make sure the sale was proceeding, and to offer support and advice if we needed it.
We were confident that Victoria had an informed and extensive knowledge of the property market in the area we were searching, and that she had the contacts in the estate agency world to help us acquire our dream house. Huge thanks for all your efforts Victoria!
With best wishes

March 2019 – Relocation to Cornwall
"My wife and I decided to relocate to Cornwall due to ill health, stress and strains of living in a city. As our children had all left home we had some decisions to make. I emailed Victoria one evening and explained our situation, Victoria replied the following morning, she happily arranged a telephone consultation at 7.30pm that evening, as I was working throughout the day.
Her knowledge astonished me, she then spoke with my wife who also engaged instantly with Victorias advice. We received the company brochure through the post, along with a beautifully written personalised letter from Victoria, bullet pointing our recent conversation.
Her company ethos is true to her word, the service is bespoke, personal and efficient. After 4 months if our 6 month search contract, the perfect property was found, I can happily say we are now living in Cornwall, and as happy as we can be, my health has improved and my wife and I have new hobbies such as walking the coastal paths, life is good, thank you Victoria for making this happen. We will be in touch soon as our oldest daughter is now considering a move to Cornwall."

November 2018 – Holiday Home Search
'Cornwall Property Finders is one of the most personal companies I have ever dealt with in my entire 38 years of business. Victoria made me feel as if I had known her for years after our first telephone call, her advice given regarding my decisions to purchase a holiday home was incredibly knowledgeable, her contacts in this field are also very helpful, with the final 3 properties Victoria had organised holiday rental companies to assess their rental ability and suitability, this upfront information helped me make a decision on which property was suitable for purchase.
Thank you Victoria, you were a ray of sunshine, I am the proud owner of a beautiful holiday home in Cornwall'

August 2018 – Property Viewing & Report Service
'My husband and I decided to purchase a second home in Cornwall, as we holiday in Cornwall twice a year, our children love it, however, due to our job contracts we cannot relocate fully for many years.
After speaking with Victoria, who was full of information and advice, we hadn’t even considered, as I was in the dream world of owning my perfect holiday home in Cornwall, Victoria guided us through the properties we wished her to view on our behalf. Over the 4 months this service saved us hundreds of pounds in travelling expenses, let alone any wasted time on viewings.
But the best part, was, once we had found the perfect property, Victoria negotiated a weekly fee with the owners so we could use it as a holiday home ourselves. Needless to say we made an offer on the said property that week during our stay.
I now count the days until we are on holiday, thank you Victoria, and the Cornish hamper as a welcome gift was devine'.

July 2017 – Holiday Home Search
'I wanted to thank you for your help in our recent search for a property to buy in Cornwall. I can honestly say that I don’t know how we would have done it without you. It is not just that you were able to function as our eyes in relation to viewing properties – not an easy thing to do when you live 300 miles away – but that you also managed so successfully to identify quite who we were as people, and through this how we ourselves would view different properties. Your evident expertise in relation to property and estate agents was also a tremendous help. I am quite sure that estate agents don’t feel the need to be quite as much on their toes with me as they clearly did with you! Thank you for all of your help'.

February 2012 – Property Consultation
'We recently enlisted the services of Cornwall Property Finders to help inform us about whether, at this present time, to put our house on the market or not.
Without doubt, we found the expertise to be top rate. Victoria tackled our case with enthusiasm and commitment. It was evident that she is very passionate about the job she does and so obviously enjoys. She carried out considerable background research into similar properties and collected relevant statistics for us to able to make direct comparisons with other local properties that had recently been, or were now on the market.
Also, having arranged a number of estate agents to come and value our property, she accompanied them throughout their visits even though this was particularly time-consuming.
Her final report was a beautifully presented document – very informative and easy to follow. The evaluation summarised our property’s strengths and weaknesses very concisely. From this document it was then easy for us to make our decision. There is no doubt that Victoria is someone who is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure quality results!'

May 2009 – Full Relocation
'I always knew that relocating 300 miles away to Cornwall would require local help. Cornwall Property Finders provided everything I needed and so much more. These days, most properties are freely advertised on the internet, but nothing can beat the help and advice available from experts who are familiar with the territory, especially in this part of the world. Cornwall Property Finders is probably a misnomer. Help with finding your ideal home is invaluable when research and viewings can’t be carried out personally. I am grateful that searches, viewings and reports were carried out promptly and exactly to my specification. More impressive however, and perhaps of even greater value, is that Cornwall Property Finders offer a complete relocation service, helping with negotiations with agents and other professionals, schooling, social/hobby needs and even jobs! Finding Solicitors, Surveyors, guidance on local authority regulations and introductions to reliable professionals and service providers are all within the scope of the Cornwall Property Finders personally tailored service.
With Cornwall Property Finders on your side, moving house is less stressful and easier on your time; they take away much of the strain and take on much of the donkey work! Recognition that they are relocating people and not just finding houses makes Cornwall Property Finders different and great value for money'.
Mick & Jacqui Morris, Pinner, Middlesex (now Cornwall)
'I would like to say a big thank you for finding Mum, Dad and Me our new house. I can’t wait to move in and make new friends with the boys next door and at school. I am very excited about it all. THANK YOU!'
