"I received a letter through the letter box from Elite Property offering their services for a house evaluation. We arranged for them to visit just three days later. They were very thorough and professional and presented us with all the information that we would need to put our house on the market. including the various on-line house marketing sites that we would be able to access which was included in the fee. As part of the service they were also able to advise on Conveyancing, EPC and Mortgage Consultancy services which was really helpful. The house went on the market one day later with the display of a for sale sign and details put on-line sites i.e Right Move, Zoopla as well as others. Four days after that we had the first viewing appointments, three separate couples were met at my house by a representative of Elite who showed them round, which was a great relief to me. Two of the couples really liked the house and dealt directly with Elite and we were delighted when they informed us that they had received an offer at our asking price and all in such a short space of time. I have found the service given from Elite Property from the start has been excellent and proffessional and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is thinking of moving. "
