Excellent experience throughout the process. No complains, only compliments.

—Lee and Jeanne Noble

Everything went smoothly with no surprises

—Robert Tanner

This was an extremely difficult and tedious process. I can't thank John and Kat Caldwell enough for navigating us through all of this. They were exceptional and patient while we worked through this all. That was deeply appreciated considering the difficulty with providing Academy with information that seem unnecessary and often difficult to obtain. There were times when I just wanted to give it all up. Doubtful I would ever do this again. God bless John and Kat. They were our saviors.
