"We used Grace & Rose to sell our property in Brentwood. From start to finish we felt valued and the Team at Grace & Rose were there every step of the way to guide us through our first ever sale. Grace & Rose made the large Estate Agents used by our vendor look like amateurs. As usual with these things, there were a few problems encountered along the way to do with our property/buyers but Grace & Rose dealt with all parties patiently, helpfully and efficiently and to everyone’s satisfaction. I also found the weekly updates very useful with the background progress. I have no hesitation in recommending Grace & Rose to anyone. I have done so since our move and I will continue to do so. It goes without saying that if we ever move again, Grace & Rose will be our first port of call."
