"I would highly recommend Anker, they were professional and extremely pleasant to deal with during the whole process of selling our house. We had dealings with a number of agents during the sale as we were in a chain of 5 and they were by far the best agent to deal with. In particular Marie was an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you to all of the team at Anker, I would most certainly recommend you and use your services again."
