Passionate and ProfessionalNina & Paul - Marylebone
Prior to instructing Story of Home, we were already on the market with a large corporate global agent. There was some initial interest, but we got the feeling that after the first few weeks, we were no longer a priority.
Then one evening at a dinner party a friend suggested we should speak to Story of Home. Mathew had previously sold a property for them, and they were extremely happy with the service and outcome.
We arranged a meeting and from the first moment we could sense Mathew and Stuart’s enthusiasm.
We instructed Story of Home alongside our original agent. Within six weeks Story of Home secured a buyer close to our original asking price.
"The whole experience was different, we received frank and useful feedback immediately after the viewings and always felt the property was being promoted professionally."
What really distinguished them was the level of commitment: the original buyer pulled out – due to personal reasons – just before we were meant to exchange. We had already put an offer in on another property. We were disheartened.
Mathew and Stuart were reassuringly positive, and within 48 hours they received two competing offers.
A sale was agreed to a cash buyer who exchanged contracts in a couple of weeks, with virtually no disruption to our plans.
We cannot recommend Story of Home enough; they are very knowledgeable and clearly very passionate about their clients.
