Mr. Cullin spent days with me and showed me 35 homes in a month. He was patient as I had change my requirements a few times and I went back to a few homes to get measurements and to look at the neighborhood. He was very good at eliminating homes that I wasn't interested in based on my previous discussions and comments from looking at homes.
