Fees…..more than covered by the savings we made in the price paid.
Francis’s local knowledge of the Kensington and Chelsea property market is intimate and has been accrued over many years. He has an expert understanding of where real value and real quality are to be found in the area. He knows the leading actors in the market (sales agents, developers etc) and draws on his personal relationships to glean vital market intelligence. His advice was invaluable in helping us to understand the perspectives and priorities of the other parties involved, namely the developer, the sales agent and other potential buyers. His guidance on the level of offer to make and how to approach negotiation for this particular property was insightful. The result was that we closed the deal exactly as we wanted it and at our offer price. From the outset Francis was a pleasure to deal with. His terms of business were transparent and extremely good value. In fact, the cost of his fees was probably much more than covered by the savings we made in the price paid for the property. Throughout the project, he was constantly available to advise and to act as a sounding board for ideas. I strongly recommend Francis to anyone considering seeking a property in Kensington & Chelsea.
Protecting our position during negotiations.
Francis Long was a huge help in finding what we were looking for, protecting our position during negotiations and he also remained involved after our offer was accepted to ensure things ran smoothly. He took a lot of pain out of the process of buying a flat for us.
Negotiation skills saved us at least £20,000.
Hanslip’s advice was invaluable and their negotiation skills saved us at least £20,000 more on the purchase price than we could have saved on our own.
