Big thanks to my guy Michael Clay for helping me through the home buying process. Michael was so helpful and was always available to answer any questions that came up. He made this process extremely easy and I can’t thank him enough. I already have and will continue to recommend him to all my friends that are in the market for a new home. Thanks again, Mike.
