A CLIENT SAYS THANK YOU! - 05/12/09 02:04 PM
Every once in a while, someone wonderful takes a moment to share a positive experience. I loved reading this blog (below) and it came as a complete surprise from Sheila Moran, an agent I had consulted with on her own personal home. She needed some direction on two of her rooms. I had fun coming up with ideas and suggestins because she was open to fun and bold updates. Her rooms turned out great and reflect her personality. So important. Thank you Sheila for your kind words!
