Testimonial

He is a great guy with a great personality and did anything needed to satisfy me and get done what needed to get done. Whether it was meeting me somewhere that was more convenient for me or just getting me a few things that were less of a challenge for him to do. He is also very open minded, explained all the scenarios front and back and explained to me all the pros and cons that could appear to whichever road we went down.
