During a financially stressful period in my life, Mr Schmidgall treated me with the utmost care and professionalism. This office was attentive to all my needs. Staff were sympathetic and cordial. I never felt a moment of helplessness in their hands. This was 10 years ago. Since then I regained financial stability and did receive a fresh start. I'm happily settled in my new home now.
