Talking plain English is the best way to solve problems with a minimum of fuss

Rhodri is a pragmatic and practical problem solver. When a potential issue is identified in a transaction that he's working on, his determination of how it will impact his client's business is a key factor in making sure that deals run as smoothly as possible. By understanding the material issues of what his clients want to know about a property, he's able to offer concise reporting that cuts straight to the core of the key issues at hand.
