Awesome Experience
In October I walked into Simon Offord’s office after I had been threatened with a partition suit. After meeting with him I left feeling that he could help me as long as I listened to him and did everything he said. Since he was the expert and since I had a lot to lose, I made the decision to trust him. Well I am happy to say that it was the best decision I ever made. Simon is knowledgeable about real estate matters, thorough in his process, and genuinely cares about what he is doing for you. As of the first week in December I own 100% of my house, which has been my home since 1980! I cannot thank Simon enough for what he did. I highly recommend him for any real estate matters you may have.
