Perfect in every way!
Kim is such a wonderful person! She is extremely knowledgeable about the trade, keeps you on schedule so there's less stress, and always available to help last minute when something doesn't go as planned. She's even helped me sell things afterward! We have not a single regret. Love you Kim :)Sent on 01/02/2020
