I hadn't considered using a buyer's agent, but I found that I was at a disadvantage trying to buy a flat in London from Canada without any help "on the ground". A friend recommended your services to me and it was the best decision I could have made!

I had seen a couple of properties I was interested in on the internet, one of which I was convinced I would buy but when I visited it was much darker than I imagined and I didn't like the area as much as I thought I would. Your input was invaluable regarding the nuances between areas and the types of property available in different parts of the city. I had visited London many times before but don't know the city intimately, as you do and it was useful to understand the differences between Notting Hill, Holland Park and Bayswater and Connaught village and the price differentials.

Within two weeks of initially speaking to you, I had offered on an ideal flat and it was good to get a discount and negotiate the furniture into the deal at no extra cost. I appreciated that Manse and Garret explained to me the downsides of the flat and didn't try to close the deal or upsell it but genuinely worked for me. Also I settled on a flat which I had initially seen on the internet myself but the Agents didn't take me seriously at all when I initially contacted them and I had struggled to get any information from them at all myself. Manse & Garret now manage my property and my guests are always visibly impressed with how things look in the flat - and how attentive your group has been with everything from nut allergies to ticket crises and restaurant bookings - thank you!

You offer an invaluable service and made the selection process, the purchase and owning the flat, much less stressful than it would have been otherwise.

I would definitely use you again and have recommended you to friends and Clients.
