    • "We were recommended Barcan+Kirby by our sales broker to act for us in the sale of our Children's Day Nursery. From start to finish of what turned out to be a longer than expected transaction due to issues outside of all of our control, the whole team reassured us that everything was in the safest possible hands and it really was.

      The professionalism, understanding of our industry and genuine passion to make sure we were supported and kept informed throughout the process was evident throughout the whole time it took and even during the hard times of the sale we were kept going by the fantastic team looking after us."
