I would like to impress upon you my gratitude for the amount and quality of work Sally has put into making this investment work!

Without Sally's help it would have been an impossible task to get into the Christchurch market. Sally's number crunching and area knowledge was the key to finding the right property for the right price.

She was instrumental in the whole process and thanks to her and the iFindProperty team I am now the proud owner of an investment property.
