You're a lifesaver, you've always been supremely prompt in all of your replies and so very knowledgeable. This has been a long process for us and you've been so helpful and patient with all of our questions and took the time to explain each stage of the process in layman’s terms for us. Your information yesterday was so amazing to have, our management company didn’t know the Civil Code you stated and had almost emailed his statement to every owner, but we caught it just in time! I’m so glad to have your knowledge!! Thank you, thank you, thank you again. -Meredith Miraglia, Monte Vista Condominiums HOA
