    Marchants have been experiencing an exceptionally high level of sales since Mid July 2013 & currently have an extensive database of applicants ready to fund a purchase. The market trend since Mid July 2013 has seen large numbers of people downsizing and those wishing to upscale, and the resulting effect can be seen by the level of sales Marchants have achieved during this time. The collage of properties shows some of our sales from Mid July 2013, whereby a majority were sale agreed having been on the market for less than two weeks.

In fact the whole sale process went through very smoothly and without the usual stress connected with selling a property. Best wishes to you all, Yours sincerely, Michael.
    • Seller Testimonial

      I was impressed by the people at Marchants
      The decision to sell one's house is seldom taken lightly, and is made for a variety of reasons. The Agent chosen not only needs to be one on repute but also one whom you find compatible and whom you feel confident will limit the amount of stress which is always involved in this transaction. For my part I was impressed by the people at Marchants. Years of experience has given them the ability to know exactly how to reassure the vendor and how to be diplomatic and helpful to those seeking to but a house, understanding the requirements of both parties exactly. Their highly professional photographs gave a perfect view of my house and drew suitable people to view; they had exactly the right manner when showing people around and their attitude to me was very reassuring. Not surprisingly, in spite of the present slump in the housing market, my house was sold quite quickly to absolute satisfaction, and to a family who are more than happy that they have found exactly the house they longed for. Winfred Saunders.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      friendly, welcoming, supportive &understanding
      Dear Peter, Johanna and I are now back in London and pleased to see that our Flat is now on the Knight Frank website!. You are aware of our rather unusual circumstances which meant that we have had to contact and pester you, over a hurried period, rather more than the norm, I fear. However, the last few days have been very informative for us both and we would like to thank you and your team for such wonderful cooperation and support. At no point have we been made to feel that we have overstepped the mark, despite feeling ourselves that perhaps we have over-indulged in your kindness. Thank you also for sharing so much information regarding suppliers and contractors who could help us. This has been invaluable in shortening our earch process. Wendy, Simon, Joe and yourself have all been totally professional and at the same time, remarkably friendly, welcoming, supportive and understanding. We have a difficult decision to make but whatever the outcome, you can rest assured that we would have no hesitation in recommending Marchants to anyone we come across. With kind personal regards from us both to you all, Jonathan & Johanna Soper.
