Joint Managing Director Rod Milne commented: “We are proud of what we have built at HFS Milbourne and are looking forward to continuing to grow the business and support our clients as part of the Tilney Smith & Williamson team in Surrey.  In Kate, we found someone who shares our passion for providing the very best client service at all times.  We are so pleased that we chose Kate and DMH Stallard to assist us with this very important transaction.”
