“I needed to find a property to rent for my family as we were moving from London to Dorset and time was running out. I had little success with my own efforts. I met Hugo and within a week I was looking at five suitable properties, one of which was perfect for our needs. Hugo took care of everything and I was able to focus on my new business venture”. Mr JL, Fulham.
“We had retired and decided to make the move and relocate from Richmond to the Quantocks in west Somerset where my husband had grown up. Hugo had an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of the area and was able to suggest the right villages to suit our needs. But the best advice was how to manage the move. He carefully considered our position and advised against being hasty in making a purchase. We took his advice to let out our London house, he then found an idyllic country house to rent (for less than our London rental income) so we could adjust to the area and be quite certain it was the right thing to do. It was and we have now made that final purchase with his help. Thank you.” Mrs CT, Stogumber, Somerset.
“I found myself in the awkward position of facing a significant inheritance tax liability on the death of my husband. Hugo was very sensitive and worked closely with my solicitor and accountant to settle the matter with the Distinct Valuer and HMRC, I was indeed fortunate to have him involved and to reach such a satisfactory outcome”. RP, Hawkchurch, Devon.
“I do not wish to confess to how long we had been living in and looking for a family home in Dorset. We had known of Hugo for some time but had chosen to go our own way with little success. Thanks to Hugo’s closer involvement and gentle persuasion, we found the perfect family home quietly and without pressure. We are so delighted.” Mrs KH, Beaminster, Dorset.
“Hugo has worked closely with me helping add value to the property I have acquired in Dorset, in particular in the acquisition of parcels of agricultural land and in finding staff accommodation. He has a very good address book and knows just about everyone in the area.” ST, Shaftesbury, Dorset.
“What was to be a leisurely process turned into a rush to find a suitable house in the country. We were getting a little desperate and were about to make an ill judged decision. It was at this point we contacted Hugo. He made us go right back to the start and told us what we could and couldn’t afford and how prices vary even within a small geographical area. Having understood what we were after, he set about the task with great energy. We now have the right property in the right place and the comfort of knowing we paid the right price.” Mrs AW, Semley, Wiltshire.
“Hugo was recommended by a friend. We had been looking to move from Berkshire for some time. We had found the right property but had just missed out. Hugo showed us several properties over the next six months or so but our dream home was still the one we had just lost out to. Bizarrely and to our good fortune Hugo managed to buy it back for us eight months after it had last been sold. Quite a result you would have to agree.” E & RM, Berkshire.
