“The key to a successful house move is keeping my clients informed every step of the way. It can be frustrating if a client feels nothing is happening so I always reassure them by phone or email.I’ve worked in residential property for over 25 years but the thrill of handing a client the keys to their new home is undiminished. Every thank you card is very much appreciated…”
