"I sold my mother's house through Anker, when she moved into a care home; chose them because they seemed to be the agents most likely to find a good purchaser. Very happy with the way they kept me informed of viewings and feedback, and then with the way they kept buyer and seller in contact when the transaction was held up by the need to sort out probate on my mother's death. Always very pleasant by phone, email, and in person."
