Comments from Past Students

Thank you so much.  I just again wanted to express our gratitude for the class you taught last week.  As a couple considering out options to buy a new home it was very helpful and I had thought we had done our homework!  It was great learning the roles of people in the process and different parts of the process on a local level.  It was a great class and I would recommend it highly.  Those handouts are great, so far we do not have any questions but we still have some reading to do and planning.  If anything comes up I am glad you are available for help. Thank you again, Kristen and Andrew

Thanks for not making us feel rushed, nervous or stupid, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone we know looking for a new home!  -Jason H.
