Recently we were involved in a very complex and sensitive property transaction, and without going into detail, it involved people's emotions, health and wellbeing. John Binnie's concern for his clients was outstanding. As agents we get to deal with many solicitors, and it was refreshing to see in this day and age of monetary measurement of results, a solicitor who genuinely cared about his client's family, wellbeing, and future. He is a very decent man.
