"I am more than pleased with the whole transaction. Ben was a real pleasure to work with. Very professional, he sure knows his stuff! No pressure, just answered all my questions and let me decide on my own terms and time line. I really appreciated his approach to the whole process. If I ever decide to do this crazy thing again, I will use Ben!"
