    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      If only others worked to the same high standards
      I searched for some time to find an estate agent in the area who was able to handle both the land and the property and was greeted in general by either a refusal on the land part or a total lack of commitment/enthusiasm. 
      Then I contacted Abode and found ability, commitment and enthusiasm in bucket loads. It was somewhat of a relief. 
      You (Kevin) and Karen have since proved that you have all those qualities in abundance and are prepared to go the extra mile to assist when necessary and others on your staff who I have spoken to have been up-beat, helpful and efficient. 
       I will (as most people do) complain, bitterly and at length, if things go wrong - it is only right that I should give compliments where they are due and they are definitely due in the case of Abode. 
      If only all others worked to the same high standards. 
      My thanks, once again, to everyone at Abode for all your help.
