Members Words

Outstanding support and guidance during our pre-assignment trip. Organized, efficient, punctual and responsive. I particularly appreciated the speed of response to our requets to visit certain apartments and Yasemin’s advice regarding issues with some of the apartments we visited and terms to be offered/negotiated with the apartment owners.
