Exceptional! In terms of a professional service, it really doesn’t get any better than Carol.
She exceeded my expectations, always going the extra mile. Very often, I would open my emails and found she’d been working away through to the early hours. Something I soon came to realise was very typical of her application and commitment.
Carol is a naturally gifted ‘people person’. She really took the time to understand what I wanted and needed from my new home and this was evident with every potential property she shortlisted. Not once did she get it even slightly wrong.
Unsurprisingly, it took just three viewings for Carol to find exactly what I was looking for!
Looking back, I could never have done this without her, and frankly, wouldn’t want to. What is normally an incredibly stressful journey, Carol made exciting and wholly enjoyable.
If you’re looking for a property in the West Wales area, look no further. You’ll be glad you did.

We decided to locate to South Wales from South West London and recognised that we would not have the time to do a thorough house search in Wales whilst selling our property and tying up our affairs in London.
We found Carol Peett on the internet and called her. From that initial conversation we were convinced that using her would be our best option to complete our move to the timescale we wanted. We talked to Carol at length about our requirements: our likes and dislikes about properties we had seen in person and on the internet. Carol was able to add dimensions that we could not possibly know about the areas, villages and districts – even though one of us is from South Wales! We agreed shortlists of properties with Carol and she made the initial visits, comparing them to our brief. The detailed reports and photographs, added to her local knowledge were often enough for us to either discount or want to view a property. Through this local knowledge, we were able to pinpoint a search area – something we had not been able to do on our own.
We made 2 trips to Wales with County Homesearch to view shortlisted properties and found our new home on our second trip. It is fair to say that we would not have found this house ourselves – and the drive and attention to detail offered by Carol and the team ensured we were able to complete the sale and move in on the original timelines we had set. She negotiated the price for us – lower than we would have thought possible, saving us money. Over and above the service offered, Carol Peett has given us many local contacts that have made moving easier. Having Carol on hand lessened the stress of the complete process and even now when we need some local advice, knowledge or a chat, we call her or her team. At first view, it may appear that the fees are high but our opinion is that this service has saved us time, saved us money on the house price and has introduced us to professionals who we would not otherwise have found. Above all has found us a new home in an ideal location. We would thoroughly recommend them to anyone going through a similar situation.
Carol Peett found our new family home in Pembrokeshire with alacrity and speed.
We are delighted with the house and the professional assistance accorded us by Carol. She helped with the negotiation, finding the right surveyor; the house is Grade two Star listed, and introduced us to a superb local solicitor.
I could not recommend her more highly.
“We thought that finding a property to buy in Pembrokeshire while we were still living in France would be quite a task and so it would have been without Carol. She saved us many a lengthy journey by doing so much of the preparatory work for us which meant that we were able to find a property during a single one week visit. Somehow she seemed able to keep her eye on what was happening with our transaction whilst simultaneously giving her full attention to many others, reporting back on progress, giving a gentle nudge wherever one was required, and generally managing the seemingly unmanageable. Her local contacts and knowledge have been invaluable and the personal service continues, putting us in contact with all manner of useful trades and crafts in order to turn our house into our home. We don’t know how you do it, Carol but thank our lucky stars that you do!”

May I take this opportunity of thanking you for all your help and assistance in findiing our new home here in beautiful Pembrokeshire.
When Max and I first decided to take the plunge and up sticks and start a new life in the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside back in June 2008 from Hertfordshire (a distance of some 250+ miles), we were faced with a daunting task, as we quickly realised our main knowledge of the area was limited to the main tourist trail.
The thought of having to drag our 3 dogs around in the car with us, trying to find accommodation which catered for 3 dogs, visit estate agents, attend viewings, the miles and miles of driving to and fro from England to Wales, was daunting to say the least.
It was with great delight that I came across your website and saw that you were so centrally located in Pembrokeshire and couldn’t help but make contact. The rest of course is history – within a week we were heading down the M4 corridor to meet with you and plan the way forward and from that moment on it was all systems go.
We would particularly like to thank you for your patience, your professionalism and your guidance, your skills and knowledge of the world of estate agents and of the housing market in general and your our extensive knowledge of the local area is outstanding – it made such a difference having someone ‘in the know’ re different areas who was able to steer us in the right direction. As we all know the whole process of buying and selling is extremely stressful and for us moving to a new area across many miles certainly proved to be just that. The process was made so so much easier in knowing that you were there to be our eyes for us, to be on hand at any time. To be able to just pick up the telephone or send an email with yet another question, or other suggestion was a godsend. The fact you were also able to provide us with very useful information with regard to our selling our own property and of course your ability to tune into ‘us’, assess what our ‘needs’ and ‘wants’ were, must have been very difficult but you seemed to do this with relative ease and now we are in situ we can just call you to put us in touch with any tradesperson etc.
Of course the endless viewings undertaken by yourself on our behalf – it was great to be able to trust someone to be our eyes and have complete confidence in the advice given as to whether or not we should make the journey to view a particular property.
You did find a little ‘gem’ for us and here we are now in our new home, which is now newly named ‘Hollytrees’. Due to the condition of the housing market at that time, I have no doubt that had it not been for you being our eyes, we would have missed this particular property – thank goodness it is now our home, in a location we just love and with a cottage garden to go with it!
Finally, I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of yourself and Rayner to anyone who may wish to follow in our footsteps and please feel free to show any prospective client a copy of this letter. The service given has literally been from beginning and actually never ends as the support is ongoing, always with a personal touch.
Thank you once again ……
We completed the purchase of our home for the future two days ago. This wonderful, Grade II listed cottage in St Dogmaels near Cardigan is on the Teifi estuary and from the steps at the bottom of our lawn we can walk down to the water’s edge. Today the sky was cloudless and the views across and down the estuary were spectacular.
We had spent five years looking for such a location. Not only had Carol, after we had commissioned her, found the ideal property within one week, she had persuaded the owners to bring their plans forward and sell to us.
She has shared in our excitement in finding such a terrific home and she has been there to help us through the valuation, survey, discussions with the local council, negotiations with the vendor and if we asked, I suspect, she would have turned the key to let us in today. We cannot praise Carol too highly.
Carol is phenomenal in what she does. If you are looking for your dream home in West Wales then Carol will not stop until she roots it out for you.
