Why do Richard Bernstone and Aston Chase stand out from the crowd?
When looking at property trends over the last number of years, a steady increase or stability has been prevalent in the areas in which Richard Bernstone operate. A decline is a rare occurrence; usually very slight and followed by a restoration to stability or yet another incline.
