I work within the conveyancing department with a fantastic team where I get to indulge my passion for property. Buying properties myself from a young age I thoroughly enjoy engaging with all types of clients, dealing with all different properties as I can relate personally to the conveyancing process. Apart from studying, in my spare time I enjoy spending it with my family, especially my husband and daughter; where possible we enjoy travelling together and having adventures!
“It's not like going to a solicitors, they are so friendly and very efficient, nothing is too much trouble. They make you feel at ease and relaxed. We spoke to Claire Brown who was so sweet and knowledgeable and pointed us in the right direction. There isn't anyone I'd rather go to. Thank you Large and Gibson for all your help and guidance, especially Claire with a very personal situation.” Mrs B
“Me and my partner have just used Large & Gibson to purchase our first home. We couldn’t recommend them enough especially Claire Brown and Barry King who dealt with us so brilliantly and made this process as smooth as they could. We would definitely 100% use them again!” – Miss W
