"I should like to thank you personally for the attention to detail which you gave to this transaction. I must say that when you said that you would be on holiday for a fortnight or so between exchange of contracts and completion, I did think we might possibly encounter a few problems. That was not to be the case, which confirms that you had tied up any possible loose ends before handing it over to David Wells. This sale has gone well...Thank you."
"Thank you for all the trouble you have taken over our property sale. It went very smoothly in the end and all the trouble you took and the detail which you produced ensured that this sale did indeed go very comfortably and well. Grateful thanks for your valued assistance."
"‘Thank you for your help. I've always been very impressed with the work and service that you have provided."
