I cannot speak highly enough of GQ, Rochelle Farmer and her services. Rochelle has been dedicated to achieving results for us in our business share purchase. It has been a long process and we have felt completely "safe" in her hands. Because of Rochelle, this process has been less stressful and we have felt reassured the whole way. We will be recommending GQ to anyone and everyone. Such a brilliant team - thanks so much!
