My friend first spotted this property before it was available on the market, at this time my friend contacted Darien to request to be the first to see the property as soon as it was available.
A few weeks later it was available and both my friend and I called numerous times on the Friday, with no call backs the same day, I called again on Saturday and so did my friend and were told the property had been taken off the market. This was quiet upsetting as we hadn't even had the opportunity to view the property. I did receive an email or a text about 5 days after my initial enquiry.
However a few days later Darien contacted my friend and allowed her to view the property and put in a higher bid, for reasons unknown to us.
My dealings with Darien and Lynda since then has been fantastic, they were both very helpful in all matters relating to the property.
I had a few issues with my bank freezing my account, and they checked their bank account frequently for me and even dropped the keys off to us hours later than we had previously agreed.
Darien kindly helped us carry our new cutlery to the house too. This was very kind.
I'd definitely recommend Fish need water to friends and family and the only criticisms would be during my initial contact with them when I received no call back. More of an area of improvement than a failure as I see it.
Well done and I hope Darien and Lynda continue to keep up the good work.
