JANE'S CONSULTATION DAYS
All new clients will receive a FREE 1 HOUR consultation appointment in order to discuss their particular requirements and for us to get a feel for the business, whilst ascertaining if we do indeed have the tools to assist you. Our particular approach is based heavily upon the need for exceptional customer service and commitment from senior management, fully engaging all members of staff from part time negotiators, accounts and administrative teams, through to property managers, lettings and sales consultants, and branch or regional managers. Without your full commitment to the ideas and plans we make, I’m afraid your investment with us will be ineffectual.
After your initial consultation you will receive a brief overview of our meeting and the main points raised, along with our structure for moving forward and our hourly, daily or monthly rates as a guideline for further discussion. At this stage you will not be given suggestions or recommendations, they will come as we work alongside you and your team.
