A special THANK YOU to Greg Willis - This is exactly the kind of firm we hoped to convey to everyone  😃
"Russ, It's not just another closing. It's not just another tally sheet. As we saw this afternoon your two-plus months of coordination, in-depth research and care enabled the seller to have resources for the needed medical attention. Much more than a closing...you and your team helped to change a life today. Not every day people leave a closing in tears of joy....we did see that today. Thank you Russ, Kaye and Sophia!"  Greg Willis - Keller Williams Lanier Partners
