Hi Mr. Baker thank you for responding back to me, sorry it took me a few days to get back. Thank you so much for the offer, I am in a lease right now and have a place in Jacksonville so I am looking for something closer to north Florida. I would love to hear some of your recommendations about where to look over here.

Thank you,

Tia Saraceno
