"In reality, the reason for our success is very simple" - admits Mark. "Correct property pricing coupled with very high quality marketing materials. This means our properties stand out and attract many more viewings & offers than those on sale with other Estate Agents."

"This powerful marketing strategy means that a very high proportion of our housing stock is always SOLD STC resulting in only a small number of properties on sale at any one time and therefore a concentrated effort in finding buyers for them."

"Because our properties always attract lots of offers we are able to cherry-pick the best buyers. Often these are chain free or cash buyers, always in a very proceedable position. This means that a very high percentage of our sales go through to completion compared to other agents that have a big fall-through ratio."

One of the worse and most unpleasant experience I have ever had with estate agencies here in UK. They might be decent when coming to sell/buy, but possibly this might be their only interest. If you are looking for rental apparently you are not ...

Firstly I hate to see any customer or client upset with our service. Mistakes, although not pleasant, can happen and I can see here that we missed calling the customer back after his first call. I agree with that. It is the opposite of what we are here for. I have though looked over all calls in and all emails and can see that we tried to book this viewing, upon confirmation by the landlord, and unfortunately the landlord did not get back to us. Our Customer was told that we would need to conf ...

Thank you very much for the kind words. We too are delighted at the response and really wish you all of the best with your onward and exciting move! I think the experience with your home shows that price reductions are not the way to achieve a sale. Unless properties are marketed to the very best potential then certainly the highest possible price won't be achieved. Thanks again. ...

Thanks Ann for the kind words. Selling your home was particularly satisfying personally as I know sales had been attempted unsuccessfully with other agents before. It's a great house and I genuinely think that both you and the buyer worked well to agree the sales/purchase price. This was one of those lovely scenarios that left each party satisfied and happy. Thanks again. ...
