Dr Iain (34) and Isree (34) Brown were living in the outskirts of Marlow when they decided to make the move further into town. The key motivator for the family was so that they could be in their preferred school catchment area, ensuring their son Theodore (3) got into a great local school. The couple used the Part Exchange scheme to purchase their four-bedroom home for £1.125m enabling them to move in just 6 weeks.

Iain explains: “We had been trying to sell our home for eight months and were looking at various developments but then we discovered Portland Gardens offered the Part Exchange scheme and we were sold. It helped us find a buyer for our house and cut our time in half. The sales team were extremely helpful and kept us updated during our move, taking the stress completely out of the process.” Part Exchange guarantees a cash buyer for your home, removing chain delays and taking any added pressure off the process.

Iain adds: “We are quite familiar with Marlow as we have always lived nearby and have enjoyed the great parks and local amenities for a number of years. Portland Gardens made all the things we loved about the town so much more accessible as it’s located close to the High Street. The location is superb and it’s close to the hustle and bustle of the town centre, so we are surrounded by local shops & restaurants which we take advantage of quite regularly. Having said that, as it’s tucked away, we get none of the noise. It mainly feels like we live in the countryside but with everything we need on our doorstep”.

Iain continues: “We fell in love with the property as soon as we saw it. We have enough room to entertain family and friends and have space to grow as a family. We overlook greenery which is great as Theodore will make the most of it this summer while we can have plenty of friends over for barbeques in the private garden.”
