“I really enjoyed the presentation and found it very informative. My girlfriend and I were originally a little concerned about the 2+hour timeslot. However, after the presentation was finished, we looked at our watches and literally commented to each other how the time flew by. You guys did a good job keeping it entertaining.”

“Thank you so much. I just again wanted to express our gratitude for the class you taught last week. As a couple considering out options to buy a new home it was very helpful and I had thought we had done our homework! It was great learning the roles of people in the process and different parts of the process on a local level. It was a great class and I would recommend it highly. Those handouts are great, so far we do not have any questions but we still have some reading to do and planning. If anything comes up I am glad you are available for help. Thank you again, Kristen and Andrew
