“Last week I got accepted by Department of Housing to get a 4 bedroom house, so we moved in last week! It’s a pretty good house in a quiet little cul-de-sac so we are pretty happy with that, thanks to you and everything you did to make that happen for us, we owe that to you! So thanks again and just wanted to touch base and let you know how things are going.”
