The sales process took 25 weeks and 2 days from the day we first met Nicholas Lindsay- and 19 weeks from the first viewing (12 viewers in all).
Excellent teamwork. After each viewing, the vendor e-mailed feedback to OJ - and normally, within 24 hours OJ e-mailed their feedback to vendor, following their discussions with the viewers.
The 7 weeks from agreed sale to Exchange of Contracts was an exercise in 'keeping the vendor patient' that Oliver James managed very well.
