"Dear Karen and Doug,
We want to thank you for all of your hard work, attention, and professionalism during the sale of our (Hocking Hills) cabin. We really don't know how we would have gotten through it all without you. Your industry knowledge, and genuine care for all the people you work with along the way, are evident in every part of the process.
The (buyers) told us that they intend to keep the name we used for the property: "Beach Hollow." That makes us smile! Plus we think it's fun that you were instrumental in making the property a part of both family's lives. From being involved with its original construction, to seeing the (buyers) family now call it home, you have been good & caring stewards of lovely Beach Hollow.
Thanks again - happy Spring! - and God Bless, Bess & Tim (3-16-21)
