Having been owned by the same family for over 50 years it was a day of mixed emotions for the vendors of Malmesbury House when completion day finally came around in June.
The home, located in the leafy Surrey suburb of East Molesey had been owned and run by the Gajraj family since 1962 but has been sold to an experienced multi operator who recognizes the tremendous potential of this established and well positioned business.
The sale (as with many care home sales) was not an easy process but the owners were grateful to DC Care for their help and persistence. Following the sale Dr Haroun Gajraj thanked the team for their efforts:
"Dear Andy & Clare
Thank you for all of your help and advice with the sale of Malmesbury. Your advice on a number of complicated issues was very helpful in progressing the sale. You both went the "extra mile" and you certainly earned your commission on this one! Incidentally, I can tell you now that your commission rates are very reasonable. You were both always available when needed, very professional, and you liaised with all parties to ensure that everyone was kept informed. Good communication often makes a vital difference in these matters. I am personally very grateful, and on behalf of myself and my business partners we wish you and your team well for the future.
Kind regards, Dr Haroun Gajraj."
