Here’s what some of my clients have to say.
Preparing your home for sale or to help you ‘feel at home’.
Damp, a lack of wow factor and lack of time – help was needed to sell this beautiful Victorian house.
“I immediately had a sense of enormous confidence that she was someone who would look after the sale for me, together with relief that she would also take almost all the decision-making and minutiae off my then very busy shoulders.”

I was recommended to Sally Rule through a mutual friend.
I immediately had a sense of enormous confidence that she was someone who would look after the sale for me, together with relief that she would also take almost all the decision-making and minutiae off my then very busy shoulders. I felt she showed an awareness and perception of what I needed and also what would not be helpful to me in the process.
She succeeded in obtaining a completion date within 3 months, which was a delight and extremely satisfying – leaving me free to arrange storage of my furniture and relax for a few months staying with a friend whilst I looked for something new.
Six months later when I found the “something new” I was gratified when showing it to Sally to have her underline my positive thoughts.
Since then I have recommended Sally widely and if any of my friends or family have an interest in a property, I find myself saying, “well, why don’t you ask Sally Rule.”

Getting a property ready to successfully rent out.
“the ‘snagging’ list was quite extensive, however we have been exceptionally impressed”
Here's what they had to say
‘We engaged with Sally having bought an investment property in Guildford, with a view to renting it.
It was initially not a straightforward process as the ‘snagging’ list was quite extensive, however we have been exceptionally impressed by the professionalism and dedication that Sally have shown throughout these teething issues.
She is happy to go the extra mile and keeps us informed at all stages.
We would highly recommend her for anyone considering renting out their property!”

Presenting your home to achieve its best sale price.
Resolving problems with a difficult landlord needed a firm yet caring approach.
“It would be safe to say, that the landlords, were – well, difficult!!! …
She listens, offers solutions, communicates, and most importantly, gets results!”
Here's what they had to say
“What can I say about Sally… She is fabulous!
Sally was responsible for the management of a property which I rented for a year between ’17-’18. It would be safe to say, that the landlords, were – well, difficult!!! Sally however, was a constant source of stability!
She is incredibly professional & efficient, but also, extremely personable. She was able to manage every issue which arose, mediating very difficult situations between tenant & landlord, ensuring my continued feeling of support. She listens, offers solutions, communicates, and most importantly, gets results.!
I cannot recommend her enough – she’s exceptionally knowledgeable, assertive, and selfless – she genuinely cares and is always at the end of the phone!

“We would not be here today in our lovely home without Sally’s assistance, and we cannot thank her enough”
Discover what they had to say
We had bought the property on a buy-to-let basis and had financially pushed ourselves to the limit. It was therefore vital we had reliable tenants paying rental income immediately.
Sally not only achieved this in record time but was the ultimate professional from start to finish.
Looking after our interests in what was at times a daunting and stressful proposition, Sally worked tirelessly communicating between agents, tenants, solicitors and ourselves to ensure the whole process progressed and completed in a timely manner.
Importantly, Sally had the knowledge and experience to negotiate through and overcome all the challenges that we faced.
The numerous contacts she provided also proved invaluable. She recommended a solicitor and various tradespeople for necessities such as electrical checks, cleaners and even a local carpet company, all of which we were extremely satisfied with.
I would happily recommend Sally and her services, given the extremely professional, successful and stress-free experience we had throughout.
Sally consistently displayed a positive, can-do and proactive attitude and always with a smile on her face.
We would not be here today in our lovely home without Sally’s assistance, and we cannot thank her enough.

Finding your right next purchase or rental.
Buying a home for their student daughter may be the start of this Hong Kong couple’s UK property portfolio.
“With Sally’s help, we have gone through a timesaving, cost-effective and very pleasant buying journey abroad”
See what else they had to say
“Sally is such a caring person….”, highly recommended by our friends recently migrated to UK a few months back.
While we went back to Hong Kong leaving our daughter in Nottingham, we decided to get a property there for her university stay and potentially as an investment consideration in UK.
With Sally’s help, we have gone through a timesaving, cost-effective and very pleasant buying journey abroad.
Her experience and responsiveness throughout the buying process made us possible to get the right place, paying the right price and most importantly catching the original stamp duty exemption deadline.
Without our presence in UK, the comprehensive offering of introducing possible involving parties, seamless coordination among seller, agent, solicitor and surveyor; Sally had ensured a completely hassle-free purchasing engagement before reaching a smooth exchange of the property with our daughter.
The journey never ends, this is just a beginning of us having a property in UK. Sally has been so considerate and goes extra miles of providing us all necessary information on property insurance, council tax, utilities, TV license,….looking after us and offering help whenever and wherever possible.
Sally is such a caring, competent and considerate person to work with. Highly recommended for anyone looking for property 😍.”

We first met Sally Rule in early 1999 when my wife Dana and I moved to England from America.
We found her services to be invaluable.
We have moved 3 times in 3 years, and each time we have called on Sally.”

From finding the perfect property to someone who can do the ironing, this busy professional needed and received it all.
“She ‘took the strain’ away from me, allowing me to focus on my work …
A perfect turnkey solution.”
Here's what Mr M didn't have to do
“I cannot recommend Sally’s services enough.
I am a self-employed professional and have to work away from home regularly.
I was looking to move and I needed someone who could save me doing all the leg-work. I needed someone to find and secure me a property, arrange suppliers and move me from my old property, into my new one whilst working away.
For me it was simple: Sally asked me what I was searching for and we agreed a brief. She then researched the market, viewed the potential ones and then shortlisted them for me. She accompanied me to my own viewings. Whilst out viewing the properties, Sally gave me an orientation tour and showed me where the local shops, train station, library, doctor, petrol station etc were in relation to the property. Basically, I chose where I wanted to live and she negotiated (and got me a great deal).
Sally also arranged the removal from my old property and moved me into my new home. She arranged for suppliers and liaised with the letting agents, to ensure my old property was ready for check-out, which she attended.
She ‘took the strain’ away from me, allowing me to focus on my work.
She did all the negotiating with letting agents, the removal people and even performed a pre-inventory check (saving me a small fortune).
Finally when I moved into my new home, Sally had even negotiated a cleaning and ironing person for me… and provided a welcome pack!
A perfect turnkey solution for me, excellent service and value.”

Peace of mind comes as standard with a student property search, oversee and assist service.
“The prospect of our 19 year old renting a student house with 5 others, was very daunting.
Sally came to our rescue and her expertise in guiding us through the contract and inventory was invaluable”
See what else they had to say
The prospect of our 19 year old renting a student house with 5 others, was very daunting.
We had concerns about the tenancy agreement and the state of the property.
Sally came to our rescue and her expertise in guiding us through the contract and inventory was invaluable.
As parents it gave us peace of mind that Sally was looking after our child’s interests and she was on hand to address any concerns.
At the end of the rental term we were delighted that Sally again handled the check out and managed to gain full reimbursement of the security deposit.
We would definitely recommend the services of Sally Rule.
As parents, we all saved time and money as Sally assisted and kept in regular communication with us, at every stage.
All of us, including the students in the property, benefited from her knowledge and professionalism.”
