Comment on agent fees
Michael Graham considers itself to be the best estate agent and has fees consistent with this. To command fees at this level, the service provided needs to be faultless. The claims made on Micahel Graham's website of 'offer(ing).....an exemplary personal service for sellers' and including 'feedback and communication with our clients' are baseless and not justified.
