Selling and renting homes is our business and we love it. We also however understand that it can be a very stressful time for those in the middle of the process (especially the vendors and landlords) so we have always tried to tailor our services to reduce the angst at every available opportunity. 
Even though the level of demand outstrips the level of supply for property, selling a home can be difficult. At Strawberry Sales and Lettings, we understand the difficulties faced by vendors, but we are on your side and ready to help
