“Carol, Thank you! We would like to thank you for helping us find our (beautiful) new home and selling our other property. We really love the old home. It was tough to leave our first home, wonderful neighborhood and friends. This is new beginning for our future. I have attached a copy of the note I will leave in the Huntington Lane home for the new owners. It gives some instruction on the Jacuzzi, heater, and alarm. I hope they enjoy the property as much as we have over the last 8 years.”
