“My wife & I are close personal friends of Richard & his wife, having known them for the last seven years. As such, people might conclude that our decision to sell through Richard was an emotive one, however the opposite is actually true.
When we suddenly found ourselves in the position of negotiating to buy a new home through a multiple-offer situation, Richard spent a weekend on call advising us / acting as our buyer’s agent. His close involvement in the process was a testament to our successful bid. So having bought first we needed to sell quickly. Cue Richard you might think – Well not quite!
Despite our close friendship with Richard, business is business, so we asked him to pitch for ours in competition with two other agencies (one of which was the major agent in our area). The main reasons we selected Richard to sell our home were the quality of his pitch; the fact he was prepared to listen to our needs; he showed a willingness to think outside of the box and, being a resident, his knowledge of the local area and housing market.
Friendship aside, Richard conducted himself with great professionalism. His knowledge, commitment and all-round personable manner mean we would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody looking to either buy or sell a property. Rest assured Richard will work tirelessly to get a result all parties are happy with. We certainly were.”
