Lauren Gray- QuirindiHi Luke I was more than satisfied with the service I received from Ray White Quirindi and yourself in particular. I was kept “in the loop” at all times and you made yourself available at times that suited me for viewing of the property, etc as I was living out of town at the time. I also appreciated the bottle of wine I received upon completion! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ray White Quirindi to anyone who might ask me. Kind Regards Lauren Gray
