Dear Eylem Funds received Monday. Can't thank you enough for the easy and efficient sale of the apartment which I thought would be difficult without coming to TRNC.Thank you for your time and guidance.



Eylem did exceptional work for me. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable, diligent and most importantly, honest. She accomplished what no other lawyer was able to do, and kept me involved in every step of the process. She was very timely in answering any questions I had, and was always helpful. I highly recommend Eylem for anyone looking for a Lawyer. She is the absolute best in Cyprus.
