12/23/04 - I wanted to send you all an email to say thanks for making our purchase and renovation go so well.  The contractor doing most of our work left a lot to be desired byt everything else from the agents (Georgann) to the mortgage broker (Dorothy) to the lender could not have gone better.  I highly recommend them.  And Dorothy did the near impossible by getting the loan closed on time.  I know you guys make recommendtions for each others services all the time and I wanted to take the time to tell each of you that we highly recommend all of you.  From one customer's perspective (and unfortunately we have way too much experience in this buying/selling stuff) you guys are the best.  Thanks again for everything and you all have a safe, hapy and relaxing holiday.  Alfie

Love, The Deadwylers
