The sale of the maisonette above our business turned out to be a complicated and long-drawn out affair, not least because we had to have 4 sets of solicitors on board. It ran well into a year and caused considerable stress and sleepless nights, none of which we could have forseen at the outset.

Throughout this time, we had Simon's unconditional support and help at every turn. He was always affable and undiminished in his positive attitude in the face of any problems that arose. There was no occasion when he was unable to help in some way, shape or form, no contact he did not have or person he he could not recommend, to deal with whatever crisis presented itself.
At all times during the long months, he dealt with matters as they arose, responded to telephone calls
immediately, or called back within minutes, which included after hours. His whole aim was to facilitate the sale for us with the minimum of stress, the immense stress we did suffer being the unprofessional and unethical behaviour of 2 of the firms of solicitors involved. Simon, however , did not stand in awe of solicitors and pursued them as and when necessary
Also worth mentioning is Simon's agreement on the importance of the successful buyer being the right one for us in view of the fact that we woud have an ongoing working relationship with the buyer for a year or more after the sale ~ which we're happy to say that we have.

We have not the slightest hesitation in recommeding Simon to anyone. We have every intention in fact of using him again in the near future.
Comment on agent fees
Simon honoured his original fee quotation despite all the extra time and work that was involved. It's worth noting that Ashtons only charged half of what Foxtons quoted and the sale figure achieved was considerably more than Foxtons said would be possible.
