  • "I find it extremely hard to trust anyone as I leave money irresponsibly lying around the flat as well as expensive items including a Rolex watch Chanel watch and Lots of other designer goods When I first saw you I instantly thought you were an honest and genuine lady. You went above and beyond to clean my flat and you have done such an amazing job that I am so impressed with the way you came into my flat and got cleaning. You were fast but you were also thorough and paid so much attention to detail. You are quick to take instructions and there was no faffing around. I fully trust you to keep my key and I look forward to working with you in the future. Housekeep offered cleaners but I’m glad that I chose you. Highly recommend you to everybody and second all good references"
