Going Going Gurner! 28 Stanley Street and minimum apartment guidelines

Tim Gurner may well need to be referred to as the man with the golden touch soon enough as another of his development firm's projects has sold out almost immediately. GURNER had little trouble in finding buyers for all apartments within 28 Stanley Street , reaching 100 percent sales within 48 hours.
