Estate Beneficiaries from the UK and Italy for Lot 22:

“I can only say how impressed we all were, with the professionalism experienced at the venue today…….the whole team have

created an auction with a relaxing ambience. I wish you all the best with all your future sales.

Thank you for your persistence in what was a tricky situation, we will not hesitate in recommending Dedman Gray to our

network of potential customers.

I expect I shall hear from you soon.”

Executor to the Estate for Lot 23:

“I have been delighted with the services and support provided by Dedman Gray.  I think there was an appreciation and patience

that selling property is not an everyday occurrence for most people and some ‘hand-holding’ and support is needed to guide

people through the process.  I like the fact that e-mails were frequent and you posed questions to me but also offered


I would definitely recommend Dedman Gray to other people. Finally, thanks for the excellent outcome on Wednesday.”

Getting ready to sell?

There are many advantages to selling at auction, it’s quick – the whole process takes around

six weeks, there’s no chain and when the hammer falls your property is sold.

Selling at auction also widens the potential market, not only will there be buyers who want to

make it their home, there’ll also be investors, developers and property dealers interested in

buying. In many cases an auction could prove to be the best method for selling your property

and not just a last resort.
