I loved working with Gerlinde from Virtual Web assist. I felt that she went out of her way to assist me with queries after the website was designed, and there were many queries! The turnaround time was great and she always communicated when she would be unable to work on my site, so that my expectations were always clear. Gerlinde is always friendly and a pleasure to work with!

We were super happy with Virtual Web Assistant's job on our new website! We are very happy about both result and process. The team was flexible and patient, very keen to understand our needs and wishes and always there when we needed them! The fact that Gerlinde is fluent in English and German was indeed an extra bonus for us as our website is bilingual as well.

I really enjoy working with Gerlinde. She upgraded my existing website to a more current, dramatic and mobile-friendly iteration. I am creative with quite strong ideas, and Gerlinde worked patiently and creatively with me to achieve the vision that I had. I was most impressed that she always found a workaround.She stayed in communication with me all the way, and delivered on time and on budget.Gerlinde keeps me on track with monthly updates and has assisted me in really improving my rankings. I would highly recommend Gerlinde to anyone wishing to build and improve a digital presence.
