it has been my sincere pleasure

In order to conclude a letter I'm writing in Spanish for services offered, I'd like to say "it has been my sincere pleasure assisting you with this matter". Could anyone offer suggestions for the best way to say this in Spanish? Thank you!

    Hi Nena, I would say:
    Ha sido, para mí, un (sincero) placer ayudarle con este asunto.
    I wouldn't say sincero, but it's not wrong.
    Please somebody correct my mistakes.
    También: Ha sido un (sincero) placer ayudarle con este asunto.

    I'm with montevideana about sincere...it sounds over-affected and even insincere. Hers is definitely warmer; so, if you want warmth, go with montevideana's option.

    I agree with DCPaco and Montevideana about the "sincere" matter.

    I'd only change "con" with "en" as it is more proper in spanish.

    I would also omit the ", para mí," part unless you want especifically make clear it is you, personally, and not anyone else, who is pleasant with the matter. Without it, the letter will be more formal.

    It would be: Ha sido un placer ayudarle en este asunto.

    If you want to include the "para mí" part, I would write: Ha sido un placer para mí ayudarle en este asunto or even Para mí, ha sido un placer ayudarle en este asunto, but in the last sentence you seem to imply there was something really personal around.

    I would stick with the first form.

    Greetings!
