After many curve balls thrown at this guy, he STILL stuck with us to the end. I feel like he really cared about our best interests. I wish I could say we closed on the house, but to no fault of Lakes, we did not. HOWEVER, we are still looking at being able to buy the home in the future, due to him working his magic. I consider Lake a friend after everything he went through for us, and not just a realtor. I recommend him to anyone. Truly, if you want a professional with a heart, this is your guy.
