Jay Crandall, broker and founder of Crandall Commercial Group
"You were kind enough to assist with issues that are not within the normal scope of one's realtor. And, as is usually the case, when at the last minute everyone was scrambling to close, you were able to pull together all the information to make it happen. Again, thank you for going above and beyond." - Dr. J
