"Anker and Partners looked after the sale of a property which had been our family home for over 50. They managed the marketing in the most appropriate way for a house with such character and found a buyer who considered it their dream home. The process was as smooth and swift as it could be and we were kept informed throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending the firm."
