Thanks again for your brilliant service with both my property sales over the past years. Your experience in Shetland is much noted with local people.
Selling my house whilst living in Edinburgh was a daunting prospect but I should not have worried. The communications between both parties was easy and the sale of my property went through without any hitches.
