"Aside from the protracted negotiations and my buyer's own sale falling through in the early stages of an agreement, there were numerous later issues and potential pitfalls that were not of our making. You dealt with these throughout the proceedings with skill and a high degree of sensitivity and diplomacy. In short, you went beyond the call of duty that finally brought the whole situation to a happy conclusion. "
