"Henry Taylor and Francesca Hubbard are an excellent team to have behind you in a transaction. Both calm and pragmatic, keeping everything focused. At higher intensity moments their support was invaluable. They explain the position and the options clearly, and maintain a focus on the desired end position. Dealing with professionals who are highly skilled in their field, but are also just genuine and likeable people"
