I am very thankful that you steered me away from my preference for private sale as the auction brought us far better result.”

"Bertram had a hard job on his hands convincing my husband that not all real-estate agents were the same. He made a lot of promises to us and although we were cautious, we warmed to his gentle and charming nature. Bertram stuck to his promises. He was at all times professional, organised, sincere, honest, open and an excellent communicator."

We really valued your honesty and integrity and we still can’t wipe the smiles from our faces. "
