The task of addressing my aunt's estate and the valuation of numerous artworks and items to me was daunting one. St George were professional and approachable and the team efficient and delivered a thoroughly comprehensive document. I have recommended you already to two or three legal firms as you should be a must on their recommendation lists.

I found the valuers to be very knowledgeable in their field of expertise and they would ask for more clarification if unsure of any of the processes.  The Valuers worked very well with the porterage staff and respected the working environment they were in.  I found all the valuers to be polite and friendly to everyone they came in contact with during this audit and found it a pleasure working with them.
