What They Say...

I owned a 5 acre site in North Hertfordshire with option on it from a developer. My normal agent (an international land agent) had no idea what to do and it looked like we were going to let the developer purchase it at their offer price. I employed Grain & Co and we ended up settling at 150% higher than the developers original offer and at a cost of 15% of the additional monies paid by the developer.
