        Caroline has been very responsive and started to advise me as soon as I had made my initial contact. She understands you well, given that she is French and well versed with English.


        I made some informed decisions, with her much sorted advice. Her fees are reasonable and she explains you very well before you engage her.


        Caroline has been very professional in all her aspects. She is very smart and her introspection is the only way for further improvement.
