Daniel is " One of a Kind" He was a delight to deal with. Absolutely professional and top of his game. I would like to say that Daniel is an incredible asset to your organisation; and believe that his talents could be further developed in a managerial role within the company. I have dealt professionally and personally with Real Estate Agents; and none have come close to the calibre of Daniel. We were considering asking Daniel to cut his commision on the deal; but felt that such would have been an insult.
