Testimonial:   It gives me real pleasure to have the opportunity to convey what a positive experience it has been to be involved in the first stage of purchasing one of the apartments at the proposed Alexandra Park development.  The outstandingly personal and friendly way Juliet Lichtenstein and the team explained the project to us and allowed us to consider what the possibilities might be for us.  Juliet's professional manner has meant that at no time did we feel we overpowered by a slick sales process. We are fortunate to have taken the next step in our lives with such a competent professional.                                      L & D Donaldson June '16
