I am the worst. Marty was there ready. He sent me materials and was communicative from the first message when I proposed a deal. I lost track of time ...at work and missed our appointment. I hope he will give me another chance and I’m completing this deal because he did it was my fault that I didn’t show up. Sorry about that! show more
