I must start by stating moving house is one of the most taxing tasks for most people. Our laws in England do not help, in Scotland they do at least have a fiscal law akin to a Gentlemans agreement that cannot be broken. It seems people can just \'pull out\' at the last minute with scant regard to the impact on \'the chain\' . Estate Agents are expensive but good ones earn their money. Linda in Maitlands is an example of not just good but excellent. Her communication was timely, honest and balanced. Indeed a total opposite to Mr & Mrs M who have hidden behind the anonymity of their review and tried (but failed) to discredit her company. Perhaps they are a competitor who are jealous of Maitlands and their success, lesser things are know to happen! My purchase was not without problems but Linda and Maitlands professional stance, communication and involvement are second to none. Thank you Maitlands and Linda. Good job!
