Dave at Hunters is great to work with. The house took a while to sell in a declining market but Dave’s attention to detail as well as his marketing and negotiation savvy allowed us to accept an offer over asking price and higher than the buyers bank valuation. Strong agent and team to work with so I’d highly recommend.Paul Sandry
I couldn't have asked for better estate agents. Both Dave and Sarah were so helpful and friendly and were always willing to take the time to discuss with me any of my queries.Sam Baker
