“Thanks so much for your expertise in helping us close our short sale of our property in Torrance last week. You were constantly in touch with our buyers agent and B of A during the time it took to obtain the banks approval and final closing of our sale. Without this constant attention on your part the process would have been much more difficult than it turned out to be. Your knowledge of the banks Equator online short sale system made the process much easier for all of us. Thanks again for all your help. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone doing a real estate transaction.”
