Among Sara’s key skills for her clients are re-mortgaging work, transfers of title and property sourcing. When it comes to selling your property, Sara’s unique background as a solicitor, estate agent, negotiator and property valuer equips her to understand your needs at every stage of your sale. She often visits properties to provide insightful pre-sale appraisals at the outset and to provide valuable marketing advice to our clients.
