I would be remiss to not tell you what a pleasure it was to work with Mr. Winkelman. Several times over the past few months he took the time to call and speak to me, to consider my position and opinion, and discuss our options. Not only was he pleasant to work with on a professional level, but he was genuinely nice to talk to on a personal level. I also have to say you both have great office staff. Never did I call either office and not receive a pleasant and helpful person on the other end of the line. Again, thanks for everything. I would be happy to recommend both of you to friends and family if ever needed.
