"Dear Graham, Just a quick note to say thank you for all your help. I appreciate that you will tell me that you were “only doing your job” but the way you did your job made it so much easier for all parties concerned. As always, it was obvious that you had read all the papers before you visited our site and your advice was clear and concise. Our adjoining neighbours (who weren’t previously happy with the scale of our development) commented on how pleasant and efficient your were and as an added bonus we are now on good terms! I have already recommended you to a number of friends and colleagues and I will be continuing to do so. With kind regards and many thanks."Mike Greene London & Argyll Developments Limited
