" I have known Nicholas Meyer for twelve years and upon my recent return to Canada from Australia I purchased three properties through Nicholas. I was very impressed with his knowledge of the market and his ability to negotiate very good prices on all three sales. I have found him to be a very upstanding, trustworthy and honest individual so much so that I have entrusted the management of these properties to him. I am also in the process of purchasing another property and of course will use Nicholas as my agent."~M.Walker, Sydney, Australia
