"I had listed my property with another agent who provided very little support, and made little effort to sell the property. Alan Swinamer was recommended to me. From the day I first talked with him I felt confident. His attention to me and the property was exemplary; the result was a fast and very satisfactory sale. He fully understood my situation and worked hard to ensure that the results were what I needed. Alan provides the exact kind of services you want from your realtor; he supports you throughout the whole process, and after as well."

For those of you looking for a really great Realtor my husband & I throughly recommend Alan. He's genuinely friendly & listens to what you require, offers a second to none service & is full of very useful advice regarding pre & post house buying, as it's so different to the UK his advice was invaluable
