" I want to express my deep gratitude to you for your tireless efforts to complete the sale. I do not have an emotional attachment to the property, my priority was securing a home for Lauren and her friends by the 10th of February. We had established a contingency plan with another property in the event it all fell through. As soon as that looked unlikely your efforts ensured I did not walk away. You secured the sale for your vendor.
Jonathan and I have established two long term relationships with real estate agents, buying and selling numerous properties with the one agent in Melbourne and another in Sydney. We are loyal to those who provide exceptional and trusted service for what are substantial transactions. I do hope we can develop another enduring relationship with you for Canberra over the years.Thanks again for all you did. " - Head of Investor Relations, Qantas Airways Limited
