“It Doesn’t Get any Better than This” Good morning Mr. Petrowsky (Joe)!I just wanted to reach out and thank you for helping make a dream of mine come true.

My original loan in 2017 was $289k, and I’m guessing with the market now it would be $400k easily. I think you mentioned the new loan would be for $300k wi...
“A Wise Mother Superior”  The wise old Mother Superior from county Tipperary was dying. The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her comfortable.
