We truly appreciate all the hard work you put into helping us to sell our house in record time and allowing us to purchase our new home in a matter of weeks. You already helped us with the purchase of our first home in 2006, with the same exceptional personal service as provided us this time. As you know we already recommended you to friends.
Though executed in such a short time, our recent sale and purchase provided the usual challenges and excitement from negotiations to contractual issues that had to be mastered. Your advice and leadership throughout the whole process was much appreciated and comforting in mitigating the inevitable stress and anxiety. You were there for us with answers to questions whenever required.
We very much would like to thank you for ALL that you have done for our family.
PV and LV, Darien
