Harvest Quarterly Review October to December 2018


“ Maree and Ash provided a fantastic and incredibly professional service. Nothing that I requested was ever too hard or any kind of problem. There wasn’t any pressure to make a decision at all. They are all about finding the right candidate for the client, even if this means seeking them out personally. They really couldn’t do enough for me.”
