“Jenni was wonderful to work with and kept the deal alive. It was an unusual and difficult transaction in that it took almost two weeks to finalise, but I attribute this to the owner who seemed to vacillate and not rapidly respond. Jenni did a great job working with the owner's assistant to push for action at the key juncture.”
