As an agent we take the responsibility of the health of our clients and viewers extremely seriously. Therefore we have measures in place to conduct this in a safe and sensible manner. We will ask our home owners to be out or in the garden. We will ask for no contact on arrival, but we will greet you with our usual smile as we put on our face masks. We will provide you with a face mask also, along with protective gloves. We will keep a safe distance but be there to answer any questions you may have. If you have had any symptoms of the Coronavirus, we ask you to wait 14 days before joining us on a viewing. We look forward to meeting you!
