15/09/2020

Our client brochures have always stood out, their quality and finish really do go ‘the extra mile’ to ensure your properties are showcased at the level they deserve. Whilst online brochures and website are often a good starting point, when vendors and purchasers are serious nothing quite replaces a hardcopy brochure.

So when you’re finally ready to clear your coffee table of Balfours’ property brochures, hopefully with your new home secured, you can do it in the knowledge that they can be responsibly recycled. Excellent news for our clients and the environment.
