Matthew Garling was not only professional, but a real people person. I always felt that he was being straightforward, honest and realistic with me, although in the end he negotiated a better outcome... than I had ever expected at the outset. Before meeting Matthew I had interviews with two other firms but didn't like either of them. So glad I chose Garling & Co!read more
