A friend recommended Bernards after our flat had been on the market for a year. An offer was made and 3 days after Bernards took it on. Sean was our agent and pushed to get us the price we were looking for and more. It was such a relief to have this. Both Sean and Denise were great at keeping us up to date throughout. I'll be recommending them to others. ...
