"Dear Enver and Citywharf Team, We were so pleased to finally sell our house and want to thank you for all your hard work. We made a great choice in real estate agents when we chose you as you always made an effort to communicate and gave us plenty of notice when potential vendors were coming to inspect our house. We felt very comfortable with you and felt confident that you could get us the best possible price for our house. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anybody who is contemplating selling or buying and wish you all the continued success "
