Mr Geoff Rhodes and Mr Harpal Bhohi (owner of Mulberry) acted as vendor’s agent on behalf of Mulberry Estate Agents to Finchley, London. The property located on East End Road, East Finchley, comprised the ground floor flat of a 3 storey terrace house that was subject to leasehold complications. An acceptable offer was forthcoming shortly after the property was advertised in May 2013 but completion of the sale was delayed for over 2 years due to complications between the vendor and the lease holders.
During this interim period Mulberry used their best endeavours to procure an additional £45,000. Moreover, Mulberry’s representative maintained regular contact throughout with the vendor, who is disabled being profoundly deaf, the leaseholder of the property (his brother), the purchaser, the owner of the upper part of the property, the purchaser and each of their legal advisers with the aim of progressing the sale to completion. Mr Rhodes and his colleagues calm and sympathetic support to all parties over the months that passed was the catalyst that ensured that a satisfactory sale was completed. Without doubt Mulberry Estate Agents went the extra mile beyond what could be expected of a team of professional estate agents.

My mother recently bought a retirement flat through Mulberry’s. The service we received from Geoff Rhodes well exceeded my expectations. Geoff went out of his way to ensure that the sale went through smoothly and efficiently, providing a very professional and personalised service throughout. Based on this experience I would highly recommend Mulberry’s both for selling and purchasing a property.
Without the ongoing commitment and drive of Geoff Rhodes we simply would not have realised our dream first home. We felt a real partnership with Geoff throughout an incredibly lengthy and complicated purchase process. We commend Geoff for his loyalty, openness and rare ‘up-front’ attitude at each turn. We are very thankful to Geoff for the tenacity and drive that he brought to the purchase process. We can honestly say the property surely would not have been ours if it were not for Geoff’s involvement.’
Thanks for all your endeavours for the sale of our house. We were going to give up and stay in East Finchley due to the chain becoming broken so many times. Geoff and Harpal kept us updated regarding the changing situation and perceived to get the chain back on track and finally exchanging contracts leading to completion. I would highly recommend Mulberry Estate Agents to sell your property.

Thank you very much Geoff and Harpal for your help in the sale of my property. It was done very professionally given the unusual circumstances. I feel confident enough to recommend your company to both family and friends.
“I’m very glad that the property I bought was marketed by Mulberry. Geoff Rhodes was extremely professional, both in looking after their vendors’ interests, and also dealing with me as the buyer. Buying and selling property can be extremely stressful and frustrating. My purchase could easily have gone wrong. The fact that it didn’t was in no small part down to Geoff. Based on my experience, Mulberry, are a good agency run by good people.”
I feel really fortunate to have found Mulberry Estate Agents, in the person of Geoff Rhodes when my family wanted to sell my Mother’s flat.
There is a confidence about him that is neither flashy nor garrulous. He knows his market. He suggested a sale price which was acceptable to us and he achieved it with no ‘cheeky’ offers along the way.
I wouldn’t say he is a wonderful photographer but when a couple of family members wanted several changed, he handled it with good humour and immediately. He does everything immediately – once you ask Geoff it’s done. Which is rarer than it should be.
The sale took an age to go through but he was excellent in staying on top of the progress and giving me regular progress reports and sometimes gently prompting me to hurry my solicitor along a bit.
He has found that perfect balance of saying in touch but not ringing every day for the sake of it. If I had another property to sell I wouldn’t look anywhere other than Mulberry.
