Ant and Paul are the definition of professionals and true gentlemen. They have been very easy to deal with offered a price that was suitable to both parties and offered us the utmost flexibility to allow the deal to go through. They have continued to be flexible with our ongoing demands and changes through the process and we thank them for that. I have no problem in recommending Arete to anyone.

I was dreading the process of selling our ‘as is where is’ house. By chance I contacted Arête Properties, and was so impressed. They offered a price which was close to Real Estate appraisals, were friendly, professional, always punctual, and communicated through every step of the way. They were understanding and flexible when there were hold ups from my end. I kept thinking this was too good to be true. But it wasn’t . These guys were great.

Arete Properties purchased our family home 'as is where is'. We have nothing but praise for their professionalism and help with our transition to leave our family home of 15 years. We enjoyed our many communications with them and hope they have as much enjoyment with our old home as we did. Would definitely recommend them to anyone considering selling their home 'as is where is'.
