“Thank you so much Michelle. You have been a pleasure to deal with. I am relieved it went through smoothly!”

I just wanted to say thank you for all you did. You got it over the line and I would much rather have you on my side rather than the other side. Although I feel very comfortable in the fairness of what happened I know it could have gone differently.  Thank you again, I now have my home and business safe.
