Also the statistical analysis which you provided to us, at the beginning, proved to be an asset in accessing whether our expectations on size and pricing were realistic.

We also wish to comment on your patience and consideration in exploring with us the various homes we visited—at no time did we feel pressured into making any decisions. The objective approach you provided gave us comfort in knowing that you were primarily concerned with our best interests.

Lastly, we wish to advise that we would highly recommend to others considering the purchase of property, particularly those buying out-of-state, that they retain Roy Grimm, to assist with their purchase.

Thank you again.
