Now Sold and our client sent us this lovely testimonial

“Ian was genuinely the most engaged and enthusiastic about our house”

We are not one for generally writing reviews, but when someone completely changes your attitude towards a profession, some feedback is certainly due.

Ian at Manxmove has changed our perception of what an estate agent could achieve as throughout our property sale his input and guidance was exceptional!

When we decided to sell, we had three estate agents visit the property, of the agents Ian was genuinely the most engaged and enthusiastic about our house. His valuation was a reasonable price in the middle of the other two. Considered photos were taken and we were allowed to add some of our own. The property was advertised at our request on a Saturday evening online, Ian was in touch on Sunday and we had three viewings lined up by Monday morning. Throughout the tedious legal process, He kept us up to date and was able to help with communication with our buyer at vital stages.

Ultimately he worked hard, genuinely cared about our sale and I think it would be hard to find another agent as good on the island.

Thanks again Ian.

Sale agreed on day one and not surprising as this extended Victorian home was beautiful and offered the space and light plus a rear garden and a sunroom extension. The vendors had upgraded with a new roof, loft conversion with bedroom 4 and a shower room. If you are thinking of a move, call the team at Manxmove 619966.
