I had a pretty stressful situation, but he always had my back, and made the sale go as smoothly as possible. He’s passionate about what he does…it’s not just a job for him. He’s genuine, and will not rest until you’re satisfied. If you or someone you know is looking to buy/sell, I HIGHLY recommend him!”
