I'd like to give a personal note of thank you. My first time home buying experience cannot be more pleasant experience than this. We both (Lakshmi and myself) liked the property. It was remodeled with great quality and excellent views. We moved in over the week end and so far it is a good experience with the home. I really appreciate your effort in professionally handling all the concerns even after the sale.
