Dear Mr. Castillo (Sales Manager at AmeriFirst Financial, Inc.)
I just wanted to tell you what a pleasant experience it has been working with Karen Jones.
She was the lending agent for my first listing (Ritter/LaPeter file).
Karen was thorough, responsive, kind, patient and helpful.
Knowledge, diligence and patience are just a few of her assets. Being that I am new, she has been such an asset to me, helpful in my learning cure. Karen never makes me feel incompetent, even when some of my questions are elementary.
Your office is quite a distance for me, but Karen's strengths in lending have made her services invaluable.
It has been such a pleasure working with her.
I very much appreciate the help with marketing as well. What a blessing!
Your company is so very fortunate to have her on your team.
Melissa Cox Realty
