Goosechase got us access to the houses we couldn’t reach. They listened well and understood our brief perfectly…
“Kate and Teresa were wonderful! They made the task of finding us a period home, in central Winchester, within budget and to suit our needs a reality when it had only been an improbable dream.
We had been doing our own search for several months before engaging their help, but were not getting the breakthroughs we needed as the houses we liked seemed to be consistency snapped up privately or off-market through agents. We also both work and so found the search incredibly time-consuming in addition to our office hours.
The Goosechase girls have longstanding relationships with estate agents locally which enabled them to get access to the houses we couldn’t reach. They listened well and understood our brief perfectly, only showing us houses which were within that. Once they had found our ideal house (it was off-market), they then skilfully guided us through the negotiation stage, all the while steadying our fears and knowledgeably answering our questions. The fact that Kate was an estate agent for years really helped as she provided the agent’s perspective and was able to empathise with their thinking, as well as ours, which led to greater understanding and served us as a huge advantage over most buyers off the street.
As things progressed, a vendor at the other of the chain almost scuppered the sale – stressful, since we had already given notice on our rental property. However, Kate’s regular communication with the various parties at this stage meant that we made it to finish line in the end – much to our delight and relief!
We really would not be in this house without Goosechase, on so many levels, and want to WHOLEHEARTEDLY recommend and endorse them for their steadying hand, expertise, contacts, communication, accessibility and good humour throughout an otherwise tortuous and challenging process – thank you SO MUCH, Kate and Teresa!”
