What our client said
"Having found a buyer before lockdown, Ben stayed calm and positive throughout and resolved all problems, defused difficult situations and was always patient, keeping us informed and making the sale as stress-free as could be expected throughout this most difficult time."
What the buyer said
"Ben was the best agent we could have had for our relocation to Cornwall from London. As well as introducing us to an absolute gem of a property which had not yet gone on the market, his years of industry experience were so helpful in guiding us through from viewings to offer to sale. It was not an easy journey; part way through we had the Covid-19 crisis and lockdown, but Ben was lovely, checking in regularly with us and always open to having his brain picked for advice and local information."

The picturesque waterside village of Flushing occupies a beautiful position across the water from Falmouth, bordered to the north and east by open countryside. Dating back to the 17th century Dutch builders who first came to construct piers and sea walls before settling, the village subsequently became a place of style and refinement where the many captains of the Packet Ships lived.
Flushing retains style and taste with renovated 17th and 18th century houses combining with narrow winding streets characterised by smaller houses and cottages. The village also enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and is reputed to have one of the mildest climates in Britain. Local facilities include a convenience store, two public houses and a popular quayside restaurant. Flushing also has its own primary school, church and chapel. A passenger ferry service provides easy access to Falmouth and watersports enthusiasts are well catered for with an active sailing club in the village as well as close proximity to Mylor Yacht Harbour.
