Bernard and Nesta Jones had been trying to sell their property in Greece for a year using local estate agents. Frustrated by the lack of response, in July 2009 they decided to advertise it privately on MagnoliaProperty.co.uk.
It was a difficult time to sell, being in the middle of the economic crisis, but over a period of eight months they received 39 enquiries from MagnoliaProperty.co.uk, one of which was from a Mr and Mrs Cartmel who on 25th August 2010 purchased their property.
This is what Nesta Jones had to say:
"Just to let you know that we have at last sold the house and everything was signed over this morning.
We have been so pleased with Magnolia and have recommended you to a few of our friends. In fact one of our closest friends has just put her house on the site.
Our purchasers came via Magnolia, their names are Mr and Mrs Cartmel, and they wished us to pass on their opinion of the site. They said that they thought the site was fantastic. They found that the amount of information provided on the property was exactly right - not too much and not too little. One thing that they were impressed with was that it was an independent site and interested parties were not being sold anything and were not required to make payments for things or bombarded by advertising."
We couldn't have written a better review ourselves! We particularly liked this one because although we often get good feedback from our happy sellers, it was interesting to hear from the buyers too. We don't try to sell our site users anything except the homes that we are advertising, and it's reassuring to hear that they appreciate this!
