Leo is not only highly professional but very considerate and thorough and I look forward to continuing a good relationship with her.
Leo was fantastic and very professional. She kept me informed every single step of the way, I never needed to chase her for a progress report and she responded to my emails immediately. She got everything sorted in a matter of weeks after lengthy delay and helped and advised me.
