Matthew understood my needs from the start, acting quickly, efficiently and resourcefully. When I first called I was pretty much certain on joining a high competitor, however Matthew quickly persuaded me otherwise. He has an excellent understanding of all the courses and managed to give me alot more information than the other company and thats after speaking to them on quite a few occasions. He made the process simple and easy for me to understand and I felt very comfortable talking to him, a down to earth and very easy to get along with gentleman. A credit to your team and I just couldn't go without showing my appreciation.
