    George knows when to involve us in commercial issues which could be a risk to the deal or the relationship between parties, and regularly keeps us up to date on progress.

  • "When I felt like giving up and it became very emotional for me, Georgina was extremely supportive and helped me through when my spirits were low. She picked me up and helped me to take the sale through to fruition.

    I would like to thank Georgina for all her excellent advice, support and hard work, strength of mind and tenacity. Her negotiating skills are second to none. These are qualities that no one could put a price on.”
