THE POWER OF A WELL RUN MAILING LIST

Fri 26 January 2018

I am often asked, when I am undertaking Marketing Appraisals, whether we have people waiting to view properties such as the one I am inspecting.

Without it we could not contact potential purchasers in an era before e-mail and the proliferation of mobile phones! Read More
