  • It is sadly all too rare these days to find firms who are prepared to take that extra time to really understand what can make a difference to their clients… Sagars are clearly different and the holistic view taken of our affairs is greatly valued.

    Richard Search, Director, William G Search Limited

  • “This is some kind of wizardry the like of which I have never seen before!  It’s quite amazing, now that I (almost) know what I am doing.”

    Tom Bottomley, Director, Moorcroft

  • “When I phone Sagars, even if the person I want isn’t there, other people are falling over themselves to help me. I don’t get that anywhere else.”

    Ian King, Director, Ian King Electrical
