Don and Karen Macpherson recently moved from Surrey to an area of Northamptonshire, close to the Leicestershire border.  Parents of grown up children; Karen a housewife and Don the Managing Director of his own company, they now live in Gainsborough House.

Here, Karen explains the reasons behind their move and how the moving process was made simple and easy:

Q: Why did you move house?

A: We renovated our previous home with no intention of selling, but prices in the area had gone up considerably and we were offered a price and couldn’t really refuse. Also my family live in Derbyshire so we were looking to be closer to them but with easy access to London for Don’s work, the train only takes 50 minutes direct so it’s an easy commute.

Q: Were you in any rush to move?

A: Yes because we waited until we had a firm offer on our old home before we even seriously looked at other properties. We have used Amanda Sutcliffe at Bray & Bray for four house moves and one business sale – Amanda is the most on the ball solicitor I know. 

Q: How did you feel about Gainsborough House when you first saw it?

A: We loved it. Our first impression was that it looked very imposing, it’s set in beautiful countryside and very secure. We are close to M1 and M6 motorways so great for getting to major cities for shopping or work and Birmingham and East Midland airports are only 30 minutes away.

Q: How would you rate Amanda for how well she met your expectations in terms of time, communication and expertise throughout your move?

A: Perfect – spot on.  Amanda chases things up that you don’t even realise need chasing.  We have dealt with other solicitors in the past, but unlike them we never need to chase Amanda, she goes right down to the nitty gritty  and is so on the ball that we’ve never had any issues or cause for concern. Definitely a ten out of ten.
