Thanks Nora, you have been fabulous. I so appreciate how on top of everything you have been. Because of this we may be closing today. You are an asset to the company.

Wendy thank you for everything as well. You are a true professional and this is obviously reflected in your staff.

Thank you for such a smooth escrow. It was a pleasure working with you and I appreciate all your hard work.

I have already talked with Melissa and told her how amazing she was to work with. I wish all escrow officers were like her.  Maybe she could teach a class!

Thank You ALL again!
