"Dear Nigel, Lee and Jo, Just wanted to say thank you so much for steering me from putting my house on the market in June to exchanging contracts yesterday. I imagine that for you it was probably a very simple process with no long chain, but I on the other hand was quite nervous most of the time, anticipating things going wrong! I must thank you for the professional, understanding and cheerful manner which I have always encountered from you all and wish you and the business much success in the future. Very best wishes and thanks."
