Thankyou Miranda. Delighted that Sarah and her team got your sale through. Going that extra mile means that sales complete..and don't flounder. Hope you think that our slightly more expensive fees are worth it. We try to be the best, and that costs us money, but hopefully the results pay for it. Oh, and it does allow us to pay Sarah and her team that bonus you mentioned. ...

Any issues not resolved to your satisfaction by our skilled trained and qualified staff can be referred to them for action. The Company is also a member of the NAEA, ARLA, and the Property Ombudsman so these bodies, and their redress schemes will resolve in the unlikely event of you not achieving satisfaction in house.
