Can I just say thanks for the fantastic job you did on the survey of the property we are in the process of buying. It was very helpful, useful and informative to meet you at the property and go through your findings as this is much better than just reading it off a report which I may have misinterpreted or misunderstood. I feel much more confident having been there with you as you did a fantastic job and I will recommend you to anyone in future.
