We aim to be both fair and competitive and have compared the market to ensure that we maintain these principles. Also, unlike many agents who do not disclose their fees upfront, often come up with hidden charges at the last minute or make it nigh on impossible to find them on their websites, we are totally transparent from the offset, so you can be confident that there will be no nasty surprises.
