I am an overseas seller and as such initially went to the only agent I knew, a large London firm. After 6 months of poor communication and excuses from that agent (who had clearly overvalued the property) I found Ludlow Thompson on the internet. Ludlow Thompson responded to my enquiry immediately, were realistic about what price we might achieve and were thoroughly professional in their actions and communications thereafter. Ludlow Thompson were quick to find SERIOUS buyers and handled the sale efficiently with the minimum of fuss. Meanwhile the other agent was continually sending out emails about how good they are and how many useless awards they had won, while at the same time making excuses as to why they were unable to sell my place!
I would advise anyone, seller or buyer, to make Ludlow Thompson their FIRST port of call.
