I wanted to write and let you know that the money's in the bank and the title's in our pocket. That was just about as smooth as it could go. You and your seller were absolutely on top of it. I wanted a transaction that would go down without a hitch and that's what I got. The reason I always try to buy a property with no contingency, cash on the barrel head, and a quick close is that it takes the agony out of a real estate transaction, which all too often can make buying a house worse than buying a used car while simultaneously getting a root canal and fending off said used car salesman. So that's why I wanted to write you, to say thanks for a professional job, completed as if by a friend, one who had my interest in mind. You can know that next time I want to sell something in the wine country, you're the man.
