Thanks so much for everything you did to help get my house sold! You had good advice, high standards, and made sure that it always looked great and ready to show. I always felt it was in good hands, and I knew that you presented it well. You played a big part in our family's 16 year Williamsburg chapter, from beginning to end! Many thanks for always being there for us and for making River's Edge a beautiful part of our lives. I wish you all the best!
