TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR DEVELOPERS
"Fionna and her team are invaluable! We came to Fionna at a critical time in our building contract negotiations. We had previously been dealing with one of the larger legal firms in the City. But their inflexibility had caused all sorts of problems in negotiating with our builder. To the point where the negotiations stalled and we were unable to continue with the contract.
Having had finance pre approved and with a deadline, the pressure was on!
A referral from a friend led us to Fionna, who stopped what she was doing to see us and the builder straight away. Fionna was instrumental in being able to restart the negotiations with our builder on a good note. She was able to listen to what we were both trying to achieve and find a fair outcome for both parties. Most importantly she was able to explain and enact clauses that were in plain English.
She went above and beyond often calling me after hours when she needed to in order to ensure that we got things done properly within the bank’s timeframe. A big Thank You to Fionna for getting our project back on track. We look forward to working with her on many future projects for many years to come.”
