I would like to thank you for your efforts and attention to detail when processing our purchase. Your service to us alone is what won you the business against the other 5 companies I approached. Not one other company offered to survey our building and I doubt they would have kept me updated like you have. I will certainly be recommending you and your company to any companies we deal with who may require your services.
