                            • Buyer Testimonial

                               had all the answers to questions we were asking.
                              We would like to mention the chappie who showed us around. Unlike the other two agents we saw before/after this viewing, he was extremely good, knowledgeable and had all the answers to questions we were asking. We were thoroughly impressed by him and he was definitely a credit to your business.
