"When I was ready to make the jump I knew almost nothing about buying a home. Drake was referred to me by a very close friend. He helped me throughout my mission, pulling me out of the weeds whenever I felt unsure about anything I ran to. He had the resources to help me make better decisions, and get to the closing table feeling confident I got a great deal. I would highly recommend Drake, he's second to none in my book."
