What My Clients Say
“This is a brief note to your company to thank Maria Penny for her excellent service. She made herself available to assist us throughout the negotiations in the purchasing of our new house; she was extremely efficient in the whole process and always did what she said she would. We found her advice and obvious experience helped us secure this property without any problems.”
“We have found Maria to be very professional and caring in the selling of our property. Her friendly attitude made it easy for us in our dealings with her when negotiating the sale. We have therefore recommended her to our friends and colleagues should they need the services of a trustworthy real estate agent. We would thoroughly recommend Maria to any prospective clients.”
Buying a house is, as you must be all too well aware, a time of great stress for the prospective purchasers and, I have no doubt, for the agent selling the property. Your ability to translate our somewhat vague requirements into a property which fulfilled all of our requirements – both expressed and implied – made the purchase so much easier for us. Neither of us has had much experience in buying a property and you took great pains to ensure that you understood exactly what we were looking for – probably better than we did! This was made evident by the fact that each property we viewed with you would have been suitable but our final choice was that special place which was “the one” for us.”
“Maria spent many hours with my wife, collecting her from the hotel and showing her properties. We had some very definite requirements of prospective properties, and a sense of the kind of property we wanted, which is not so easy to convey to another person who does not know us well, and we needed a short settlement. We were very impressed by Maria’s ability to listen to those requirements and sentiments and to translate her understanding into prospective properties that had the amenities and “feeling” we were looking for. She was charming, courteous, full of energy and we felt that she worked far above and beyond the call of duty in finding us a wonderful home.”
