“They were the best equipped to market my property on a street that hardly ever appears on Rightmove etc. There being no recent comparables, the team used their combined experience and expertise of selling prestige homes in Harpenden and gauged it just right.”

Not that I ever intend to move again but if I did Rebecca would be getting the call, bloody brilliant! 😁”
