I am writing this letter to thank you for your help in purchasing our new home on Singer Island and also to reflect my thoughts for any prospective client you may have. As you know, I have been in the real estate development business for over 50 years and in that time have met a good number of brokers. Though these were commercial and industrial brokers, in contrast to residential, I have always looked for 3 qualities in order to determine if we would have a relationship. In order of importance, these are COMPETENCE, NEGOTIATION SKILLS and HONESTY. It is a pleasure to affirm that in our transaction, you have met my criteria in spades. It is with pleasure that I recommend you, without reservation.
