Dr.  & Mrs Stelter (Marylebone)

Mercury Homesearch was recommended to us by some friends who had used them to acquire a home in Kensington.

Although we live in the UK and know London well, we had not bought a property there before and our friends said that they were reliable, would act in our best interests (unlike the estate agents who are paid by the seller) and good negotiators.

Jeremy did not send us many properties and we were surprised by one that he strongly recommended because the floorplan and details did not look promising. In fact, if we had not had a visit to London planned, we would have been reluctant to arrange a trip just to see the apartment because it appeared unsuitable.

Having said that, Jeremy had not wasted our time sending lots of average properties, so we were intrigued to find out what was so good about this one. When we arrived, we were surprised not only by the standard of the building but also the apartment itself.

The long corridor that was one of our concerns had windows it’s entire length so was light and not as gloomy as we had imagined. Also, the apartment was exceptionally light throughout and had views over Marylebone, which is a rarity in the area, because this building is a little taller than most.

We also saw other apartments in the building and the surrounding streets which were similarly priced but nowhere near as good. I am not sure why this one hadn’t sold. I presume that other buyers had either ignored it because of the floorplan or missed it despite it being openly advertised on the internet.

Jeremy then handled the negotiation to achieve a discount to the asking price, so we now own an exceptional apartment that has cost us less than inferior properties have sold for in the same building.

Frankly, we would not have even visited this property and would have missed the opportunity if Jeremy had not been representing us.

In addition, we have not been pressurised by estate agents, had our time wasted or suffered any of the stress which normally comes with acquiring a property. We will be recommending Mercury Homesearch to our friends and recommend you ask them to help you too.

We were also impressed by Jeremys patience to our changing ideas about housing in London and his willingness to support us also with an auction process for a house that we finally decided not to buy. He was always very pleasant company and his advice always proved to be right.
