"I worked with Kerry on behalf of the community association I was the manager of for a number of years. She was always easy to communicate with and quick to respond to any problems or issues that came up for the association and if her vast knowledge base didn't answer my question then she knew where to direct me to find out. Great to work with, couldn't recommend her more!"
