MicheleW-M"Selling a house and buying a new one is stressful enough, but when I was 6 months pregnant and terrified!!! I shouldn't have worried because Bill made it painless and fun. He handled all the details, so that my husband and I could concentrate on the new arrival and the new home. Following his advice we managed to sell our home and move into a new one all within two months! He's a miracle worker. Now I only wish he could make child birth as pain free."
