Colette provided me with appropriately detailed, highly responsive, expert assistance over a situation I had no previous experience dealing with. She was patient as she educated me and terrifically thorough and appropriate in her responses to the other party. It was not an easy situation but her cheerfulness and expertise got me through it, and resolved the problem very quickly. — M.G., Port Townsend, WA.
