"After securing planning permission on a site for four new homes in the village of Brailes. I appointed Tom Crump of Ankers to act as selling agent because he was the most experienced and professional with good house builder contacts. The promotion was flawless and consequently a number of prospective buyers were found. Tom handled the sale very skilfully and advised going to “sealed bids” - a good price was achieved. I was then kept fully informed of the sale as it progressed. In all an excellent result and service. "
