‘When someone asked me recently which was/is easier- selling or buying a house- I suppose I could have answered: ‘both are fraught’, however, I didn’t!…an honest reply which was “by comparison selling was a synch”!…( I ) express my profuse thanks and deepest gratitude to each and all of you…for helping to make the sale of my home as comfortable and easy for me as anyone possibly could!’
