‘As a CEO of a large company, with little time to spare, I particularly appreciated the efficiency of all the negotiations.

As ever with sales, there was a hitch at the last minute. Semina had anticipated such a scenario, and was dogged in getting the situation resolved with precision and firmness to the otherside balanced with professional empathy and intelligent advice to me.

It is great to see a woman running her own company with such drive and flair. I will definitely be recommending her company to all my contacts.’

‘Throughout the process of selling my London home I was caught in the trap of a stalled market, falling prices, a fickle purchaser, and the less-than engaged opposing conveyancing service – who dragged their heels in what should have been a text book check-list procedure. Not only did Semina & her team quickly and proactively prepare for the quickest resolution, she repeatedly calmed my frazzled nerves with her impeccable professionalism, and decisively managed the various technical issues as they were raised by the purchasers solicitors. At all times I felt my best interests were being considered and that I was a valued client. I will certainly be using their services again in future.’
