"My most Successful and gratifying story is of a family that was about to loose their home in a foreclosure. All do to a series of events that included a death in the family, cancer and a major reduction in income for the husband. On top of all that if I did not succeed in selling the home the husband because of his occupation was in danger of loosing his job.

Another gratifying success story would be the 3 families that needed to sell their home because of financial hardship. Not only was I able to sell the homes, all were all able to purchase a more affordable home 60-90 after the sale."
