Ian Lindars
In closing the sales of both of my old and new homes within a couple of weeks of each other, Ian's efforts, guidance and support went above and beyond my expectations. He was accessible to answer questions and provide status updates, even after business hours. I was truly impressed and satisfied with the service that he and Maria provided.
