In October we closed on the sale of three of our assisted living facilities in Florida.  The deal had more roadblocks, stumbling points, and obstacles to overcome, more than anyone involved can remember ever occurring in one transaction.  It was truly a difficult deal, one that could have been derailed scores of times.  Mr. Carriero never wavered in his commitment to see the deal through to completion.  He consistently gave us solid advice, professional insight, and was the guiding force through innumerable problems.  He was involved with all aspects of the deal and worked way beyond our expectations, way beyond the call of duty, day and night.  His tireless work and Herculean efforts made the deal possible.  We have no doubt that without his commitment to the deal we would not have made it to the closing table.  Quite simply, Mr. Carriero made the deal possible.  We believe that Mr. Carriero is the "World's Greatest Broker".   In the future, whether buying or selling, we will work only with Mr. Carriero.
