"I recently sold my house through Ankers and needed advice on whether to do it up or sell as was. Jeremy was absolutely brilliant from first phone call to the final completion. He organised a house clearance, skips, gardeners, painters, carpet fitters, and even got a window cleaner round to clean the window sills. The results were brilliant and super reasonable price wise. It sold within a week of being listed, and for far more than I would have expected. Ankers certainly know their stuff, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you again Jeremy and all the staff there."
