It has been a joy to work with you through this process and we have been in awe of your skills at every turn.

Many, many thanks, Doug.

Fondly, Becky and Larry Sykes

Dear Doug:

First, let me thank you for selling my house. You did one of the most efficient jobs that I have ever heard of in real estate. Thanks a million.

The Great Properties article on our (former) house was great. I hope that the new owners enjoy the house as much as Lee and I did. Our life there was a glorious experience. The house is made for living.

Again, thanks for selling the house. I think it was one of the most efficient operation that I have ever witnessed. Keep in touch.
