Positive & lasting impression

Dear Robert, Trust this finds you well and happy Monday to you. Billy and I wanted to convey to you our upmost respect and admiration for Leonie Butler who has delivered a level of service to us that is well over and above all expectations. While we had felt highly confident of her professionalism after she left a positive and lasting impression when we bought our Timbertop home from DCK two years ago, we have been overwhelmingly impressed with Leonie’s commendable efforts, efficiency, caring touch and dedication throughout the (very quick!) sale and subsequent purchase of a new home. As a result, we would never go anywhere other than DCK and would advise others to do the same in future for we would only trust someone like Leonie to deliver a premium service during what is undoubtedly a major, life changing decision. As I am sure you would be aware, not only did Leonie negotiate a remarkably quick sale of our home in Timbertop Drive but she had also listened to us when we had expressed our ‘wish list’ in a new home. She presented us with an opportunity that was ‘on the money’ and in what was a seamless and stress-free process, we now find ourselves proud owners of this ‘dream home’. This is thanks to Leonie who in a master-stroke, managed to serve the interests of both the Murphy Street owners as well as ourselves. She looked after everyone, working tirelessly to ensure all parties were pleased and interests accounted for. In short, I have no doubt we would not be in such a fortunate position today without Leonie and we remain extremely grateful to her for this. Best wishes to all at DCK for the remainder of the year and beyond. With thanks
