“I previously owned a bicycle parts wholesale distribution company and I think it is rare when all parties come away so satisfied after a major deal like the Driftwood sale. I knew we had a great partner with your team the second I met John and Nicole – and your performance was beyond anything we could have had expected; and I meant what I said last night - It was obvious that achieving or family goals was a foremost goal for your team above and beyond the commission. I hope we will not lose touch, because all 3 of you are people we really like and respect.” – Glenn and Patty Spiller
