Cannot thank Duane enough! He has been amazing and answered every single question I had. We have been working with Duane... since 2020, and just purchased our first home in August 2022 (by no fault of Duanes, we are picky buyers haha).He made the process very simple and easy to understand, and was just a quick phone call or email away. Do not be put off by your broker being online, it is just as easy if not easier to get it all done online.He made sure we were fully informed at every stage of the process, understood what our needs were and got us across the line every time!I cannot recommend Duane enough, and will definitely be working with Duane again if we are lucky enough to purchase another more
