Mr. Daniel M. Parkman, Sr.
I wanted to follow up with you concerning the auction you conducted for two of our entities last December.
I had interviewed four companies including your company in October of last year. I quickly came to a conclusion after our first interview. The experience and the professionalism from our first meeting to the day of the auction proved my decision to be correct. We had more traffic in 10 days than we had the previous 11 months of 2002. We had 77 registered bidders, 550 tours of traffic and your decision to hold it at one of the club houses versus offsite was a wise move. This level of success, $6M for 20 condos, was accomplished two months after the 9/11 Crisis.
In the event I ever conduct an auction again, I will make one phone call to you to work out the details.
Again, thank you for your company’s hard work and best of luck on your future pursuits.
