Jean McCann recently dealt with the marketing of my flat.
As well as being extremely professional she was very helpful and guided me through the whole process.
Jean was very supportive and always in contact with me re updates about the sale and I felt nothing was too much trouble for her and would highly recommend Jean to anyone thinking about selling their property.
Just wanted to briefly record our thanks having used Harry to sell our property in Elgin.
From start to finish he was absolutely excellent. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
The photos and property description he did were both spot on and involved him in a lot of extra work, moving furniture around etc to get the presentation as good as possible.
Overall, Harry and his team went overboard to make things easy for us as we were not in Elgin during the sale process. This involved all sorts of extras one would not expect from your typical Estate Agent.
Nice to find such good old fashioned customer service in this cut price, anything’s good enough age!
We would have no hesitation in recommending Harry as first choice to anyone selling a property in his area and wish him continued success in the future.
