What my client says about me

Just a few lines to express my thanks for all you help in guiding me through the sale of Rupert's Nursery.  Having to do this on my own has been both exhausting and stressful but the help and support from all of you has been wonderful.  The legalities have been explained well in layman's terms and I have always felt that the four of you have been at the end of the phone or replied speedily to email requests.
