I don't often publish the testimonials I receive from clients (perhaps I should) but felt this one was too good to file away...permit me the luxury of promoting myself on my own blog!  This is from Brandon in Lancaster City, a first-time buyer who purchased a home on the west end this month: 1)  ...
