Dear Mr Cardy

My wife and I would very much like to thank you for your diligent and professional assistance in the recent sales of our three Care Homes for the Elderly.

You were always totally committed, well beyond the call of duty in all the numerous laborious transactions that you had to carry out. Even when we thought certain deadlines were impossible, you continued to pursue the ideal time frame with complete success. Your knowledge of the Care Industry, C.S.C.I. and the requirements to conduct a speedy business sale is unbelievable. Your stamina is clearly remarkable and your standards are as high as one could ever expect. We were also so very impressed with your financial knowledge of the Care Industry and your commitment to satisfy fully your clients.

It only remains for my wife and I to wish you all the very best for the future.

Just a line to thank you for the help and assistance you gave during our recent Care Home acquisition.

From sourcing the Home, right through to arranging a competitive loan and also sourcing insurance cover, you made what can seem a complex task into a fairly straightforward process.

Once again, thanks for all your help and hopefully we will be doing business again soon.

DFE testimonial letter from Dauntseys


We have pleasure of working alongside DFE Commercial for the past six years. Throughout this time the company has been both professional and thoughtful in its approach towards business (in particular Residential Care Homes for the Elderly). The company is fully aware of the delicate situation which arises when dealing, with the purchasing and selling of care homes. - We only wish today there were more companies who had the professionalism of DFE Commercial.

Dear Roy

Linda and I would like to thank you and all at DFE Commercial for successfully arranging the refinancing of Stratfield Lodge.

We are most grateful that you were able to complete the remortgage despite the difficulties that we had in meeting normal lending criteria. Also for your prompt and courteous responses in all our dealings with you. Our mortgage repayments are now considerably more manageable.

Yours sincerely

Mr and Mrs Pickering
Stratfield Lodge


Dear Roy

You should know that we are very happy with the service you have given us in the past 10 years or so.

We have recommended you to both family and others and we have used you personally when we have wanted help with our financial affairs as well as the selling of Cranmore House Residential Care Home.

There are many reasons why we keep coming back to you -

1. We trust you as a totally independent operator, and that is very important because we rely on unbiased and informed opinion and you have a comprehensive and extensive network of knowledge that we can call on.

2. You always give us first class service, responding to our queries or needs very promptly.

3. You have earned the reputation with us of following things up very thoroughly and the advice you have given has been based on a fully understanding of our needs and careful research to find an ideal solution to our requirements.

4. Last but not least - we like you!!

We wish you and DFE Commercial all the success in the future.

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Cardy

I write in appreciation of your services in the sale of Eden House.

You reacted promptly to our request for a valuation and we received the first viewer the day after our particulars were entered on your register. You then guided ourselves and encouraged and prompted two solicitors to ‘keep the ball rolling'. Without your effort the transfer would have taken much longer.

While we are off to enjoy retirement we wish you well in future transactions! Again, many thanks.

Yours sincerely

Mr and Mrs Jones
