"Your knowledge and guidance of the Clarendon Hills / Hinsdale area was essential in helping Lauren and I make the right decision for our family. I have moved many times over the last twenty-three years and generally wonder if I made the right buying decision. I can assure you that I have not been more comfortable in our decision despite these uncertain times. As you know, our moving was in jeopardy at one time due to our selling situation. I really appreciate your patience over the last six months. More importantly, Carol I thank you for your friendship this past year. I especially appreciate you taking care of my family during the transition. My wife was anxious about the move given that she has lived in the South all her life. You definitely helped ease her transition to the area. She has expressed to me her thankfulness that we had Carol as our guide. Additionally, Carol your landscape and interior design recommendations have been nothing short of tremendous. Carol, please thank your entire team for their efforts in making this a positive experience."
