And THANK YOU for delivering a very comprehensive report and also for helping us out during the deep freeze with some timely advice. The final report as presented is extremely informative and actually leaves us with quite a task list. Some of the findings were shocking, but on the other hand I am not surprised.

…I truly enjoyed your class. What you bring to the classroom is so helpful to builders like me. The things that you were discussing are exactly the things that I am working through in my own business. It’s very refreshing. I look forward to my future classes with you!!

I wanted to follow up with you and thank you for your time, knowledge and enthusiasm in teaching the CAPS II class last Thursday that I attended through the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association. I would like to continue to take the remaining two courses with you as well if you will be teaching anywhere in the Atlanta area in the future.
