It is so good to see a professional with such great customer service

You were actually referred to me by one of your previous clients. Just goes to show how strong word of mouth is, especially in this town. There are now more people running around Newcastle saying what a terrific job you do.

From my perspective you are light years ahead of the competition. It is so good to see a professional with such great customer service, who can communicate in a calm clear manner, especially when I am and usually a bit emotional.

Keep up the good work Sam, I like forward to continuing to work with you on my matter.
