"We used Anker to sell our property earlier this year (2019) and the service was fantastic! We had been on the market a year before with another agent who were fine but decided to get alternative quotes. Jeremy Vasey came and offered realistic advice on the value, areas we could improve (room colours etc.) and time to launch. He was spot on, we sold for asking price in the first couple of weeks. His team (Marie and others) then managed the whole process achieving completion within 7 weeks! Amazing! I would 100% recommend Anker to market your property, a delight to deal with from start to finish."
