Richard Bailey did the initial valuation and took the photos. He advised us on the price we could expect, This was difficult as the house was unique, therefore no local comparisons.were available, but he was confident that it was realistic. The photos were absolutely excellent, showing a panoramic of the house, garden and views. The brochure and presentation on Rightmove were superb, far better than those we had seen from other agents.
Downers did most of the showings and we got over 30 viewings within a few weeks resulting in 3 offers at or near to the asking price. Which in a difficult market was amazing.
Once sold, we found a chain free house in Devon within a couple of weeks. However, this was the most difficult move we have ever had, due to people down the chain dragging their feet and our vendor seriously threatening to pull out. She set a deadline for the completion and Downers had to chase the chain really hard to get them all to meet the date. Most of the communication was done by Fraser Crumlish who was extremely patient and really worked at it, providing feedback almost daily.
We have moved house 9 times before and this was by far the most stressful, if it had not been for Downers efforts, I\'lm sure it would have all fallen through. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
