Bonnie H. (Realtor), Calgary

More thorough inspection than others. Friendly, prompt, good with clients, explaining issues as well as long term maintenance. Appreciate information provided to clients for later as they need references once the stress of purchasing or selling is over. Rating: 10 - Extremely Satisfied
