Many thanks. Once again the importance of a professional agent, who works tirelessly to keep a sale alive through to the completion has been highlighted. At Mansbridge Balment we place a huge emphasis on liaising with all parties following the initial agreement. Many firms do not do this and they risk leaving their clients to have to sort issues that they do not have the experience or skills to resolve satisfactorily. On behalf of the Okehampton team, thanks again. ...
