Appointed BE Epsom branch as joint agent, they introduced a potential buyer, however, were not in a position to make an offer. Then appointed Brows property services in Stoneleigh who after a few months had lapsed, showed the property to the same potential buyer, who made an offer through Browns, which was accepted.
