  • Hi John,

    I want to thank you for everything you did in association with the sale of our property in the Woollahra at the end of last year. Your years of experience clearly shone through in knowing exactly how to handle the various (tricky) communications from the purchasers’ solicitor. I am very glad that we did not have to handle those on our own, and that we had your expertise to rely on. We are greatly indebted to you for that.

    Jenny R.
