” Enthusiasm and marketing skills resulted in the quick sale of our property with minimum stress”

Dear Manxmove,

We have nothing but praise for Ian Lloyd and the Manxmove team. Ian’s expertise, enthusiasm and marketing skills resulted in the quick sale of our property with minimum stress. Ian carried out our wishes to the letter and nothing was ever too much trouble for him.

We would highly recommend Manxmove to anyone considering buying or selling a property. Most estate agents will initially promise the Earth but end up delivering nothing, not Manxmove.

Well done Ian and many thanks.

Joy and John, Sellers of Thorny Cottage, Thorny road, Douglas.  Completed July 2018
