"Chris, I want to thank you and your Assistant, Michele, for your tremendous help and expertise with selling our home in Hayward Park. Having been the family home for over 60 years it needed just the right touch in bringing it up to date for sale. Your input and the people you recommended to do the work, was perfect!  The quality and price for the improvements were well worth it. I was also pleased that you were able to set a timetable that everyone was able to work with.  All and all it was a low stress, high-end, great experience.  You will always be my first choice for buying or selling in this area.  Thanks for everything, Gary DeSantis"
