"A couple of years ago, a mutual friend told me you are a reliable Realtor. I was starting to look for an investment property, and I had fairly specific requirements. We spent some time negotiating one property, and it did not end in a purchase. We persisted and I now own a property that recently closed.
I want you to know how pleased I am with your services. Your work is professional: You do what you say you will do, and you do it on time. I can count on you. I find your judgment is reliable, and I am thankful for you help.
My growing to like you during the nearly two years of our working together helped this sometimes demanding task. This is a development I did not expect, but it happened. I find that the most competent people I have worked with are often ones that I like.
Thanks also for your leadership."
