Testimonial - McCarthy Stone

"We decided because it was such a big decision, Try Before You Buy would be beneficial to see how we’d cope downsizing to a one bedroom apartment. The experience helped us to realise we’d be more than comfortable and it gave us peace of mind we were making the right decision."
