“Phillip we can’t even begin to thank you enough. You were brilliant. Our first chat on Skype was only in Feb last year and in less than one year, we are living as permanent residents on our new farm here! 2.5 months for permanent residency must be some type of record.

The professional advice and all the extra help with the purchase of a farm and dealing with all the complications that came with that as well. You were always positive through the tough times and unknown situations and you made it all happen. Many early morning/late night calls and chats on whatsapp. This would not have been possible without you. Thank you. I look forward to your farm visit!

If anyone is looking to move to Australia, I cannot recommend Phillip more highly. You will not find a better person and team to help you.”
