This testimonial was written by the buyers of a guest house where, during the transaction, an ‘intervention’ took place at the vendors’ solicitors office and they were closed down by The Solicitors Regulation Authority.
We are sorry that this is so long in coming, but it is important to us.
We are sure you can imagine how busy our first 8 weeks have been, organising and getting our heads around everything!
Selling our house and buying The Anchorage was always going to be difficult, but for various reasons, the purchase of The Anchorage was, as you are aware, particularly unusual and stressful, with circumstances beyond our control.
However, your expert knowledge and guidance and cool, calm head along with your willingness to go that extra mile is the reason we are here today. We cannot thank you enough for your patience, putting up with our many ‘mad and stressy’ ‘phone calls. Each time, you were more than reassuring. Not once did we finish the ‘phone call feeling the same way we had when the call had begun. You always managed to reassure and calm us. Each time, leaving us with the feeling of ‘there is a light at the end of the tunnel’.
We have no hesitation in fully recommending you to anybody who is thinking of buying or selling a business and have nothing other than the deepest gratitude for all you help.
With much appreciation and warm regards,
Jamie and Sarah
The following testimonial concerns a closed restaurant with living accommodation in Weymouth where I was particularly pleased to have sought and found a family to lease the premises who had catering experience and appear to be trading well and are ideal tenants for landlords who live abroad
So happy are Monika and I with the work that you undertook on our behalf in Letting our premises in Weymouth in November last, that we felt we just had to formally acknowledge the successful outcome of your endeavours and your highly professional and exceptionally personal approach throughout this process.
During a general discussion with our business advisor about placing our business premises back onto the market for letting or for sale, your name was mentioned as a prospective independent agent to market the property. You were strongly recommended as someone who had achieved considerable success in the marketing of commercial properties in and around Weymouth over many years. It was strongly recommended that we make contact with you. Thankfully, we followed the advice and how fortunate that recommendation turned out to be.
As we live abroad, it was important that we engaged a company that would not only market the property but also introduce interested parties to the property and undertake the full letting process on our behalf. In the first few minutes of our telephone conversation, you offered to take the property on-board with the full range of services we needed. You put us at ease immediately without even meeting us face to face.
Monika and I were impressed with the detailed explanation of your professional background and considerable success in sales both in and around Weymouth and indeed further afield. You took charge of the conversation around prices and provided your opinion of values which proved to be spot on in the local property market. Clearly you are on top of relative values and therefore well placed to provide sound and considered advice.
Monika and I were in Weymouth in March 2022 and met up with you at the premises. Contracts were signed and the process moved on. After a few expressions of interest in the ensuing months that came to nothing, you were approached with a serious interest from a young couple with the quality and vision that we were ideally looking for.
Following a couple of site visits under your expert guidance, you moved the process through to a successful conclusion in October 2022, with the new tenants taking over the premises in November 2022, and who successfully re-opened the premises in early January 2023. They have since gone from strength to strength in a very short period of time and we trust will do well in the months and years to come. The feedback they have received from customers is excellent and bodes well for the future.
We cannot thank you enough for the patient, professional and committed approach that you demonstrated throughout the letting and the legal process. You kept us informed at every stage and went the extra mile to keep all parties in the loop and on the same page. Essential ingredients in any person working in this field.
Monika and I are both very grateful for all of the work that you undertook on our behalf and for the quiet, professional expertise that led directly to a successful conclusion for both parties. We are both delighted with the outcome so I have no hesitation in recommending your professional and expert services to future prospective clients.
Again Lawrence, you have our gratitude in full.
Patrick and Monika
The following testimonial concerns a guest house on the south coast of England where the owners were a complex group of individuals led by George….
Having decided to sell my Guest House on the South Coast I spent considerable time and effort in finding a firm that I felt at ease with and Lawrence Wright ticked all the boxes. Neither he nor I were aware of the unusual, very trying, saga that was to unfold over the next 12 months…. but Lawrence never faltered, he remained calm and professional throughout and eventually he steered the deal across the line achieving the full asking price.
I have no doubts in recommending Lawrence whose knowledge of his market and integrity is unquestionable.
