Client Testimonial
"Kathryn Thompson has the highest level of professionalism obtainable and her willingness to go the extra step goes beyond expectations.
We engaged the services of Kathryn Thompson to perform our conveyancing on the purchase of our home in 2009 and again in August 2012 for an investment property.
Kathryn’s honesty, professionalism mannerism and commitment each time exceeded our expectations. Throughout the processes Kathryn has shown beyond reproach the expertise required and at all times she was efficient, helpful, courteous and friendly. Kathryn indicated in advance what we would need to do, what we could expect so there were no unpleasant surprises and managed everything on our behalf. With her expertise it has been a pleasurable experience both times.
Kathryn is a “Class Act” and that is an understatement. It is not very often you find dedicated and honest people that go beyond the call of duty.
Without any hesitation we would be honoured to recommend the services of Kathryn Thompson to future clients.
Yours sincerely,"
