Music to my ears

The wonderful spectacle that is last night of the Proms punctuates the end of summer but also heralds the start of the traditional September market for country houses. News today that the National Plan for Music Education is bearing some fruit, is also heartening and a step in the right direction. The important role of music in education has long been documented, with the benefits even outweighing the enormous enjoyment and self of achievement it gives. Salisbury Cathedral school is one of the just thirty-nine choir schools in Britain but is unique in having two parallel choirs for girls and boys with parity of age, financial support and number of services sung. Salisbury has a long musical history, from the cathedral to the thriving Music Society and an extraordinary array of other music regularly performed in the City Hall from classical to contemporary. The countryside too has its own soundtrack, which has changed from the heady days of summer, through harvests to the sounds of early autumn; with game birds calls announcing the arrival of the sporting season. Music plays an important part in our lives and has been my constant companion throughout the renovation and re-designing of our building at 36 Milford Street. I have always striven for perfection in the service we deliver our clients. Whilst perfection is rare, it exists in opera and classical music: every bit as much as it does in a Georgian property (however crumbling) and indeed, the flowers within its gardens. When we have moved house ourselves, for the obvious reasons, it has not always been possible to act for myself. Sadly, our experiences in these moves has not been the customer care and attention to detail we would expect (or provide our own clients). In building this office and new business in Salisbury, I am determined to demonstrate there is a better way and that all agents are not the same: by offering the best of agency service, with the expertise of nearly 30 years experience in sales, lettings, management, planning and design. If music is the shorthand of emotion, and a good experience of the property process as a client can be delivered by experienced professionals prepared to go the extra mile, we will play on.
