I am the CEO of a leading firm of Architects Town Planners, and a harmless hello upon arrival at Dubai airport has now metamorphosed into a crystal investment relationship. The rare hospitality, warmth of reception and most of all exceptional professionalism that TFG exhibited got me to sign on to an investment package at the Marina.
