    Zuriel is extremely knowledgeable about product and compliance. A fantastic source of program knowledge and a consistent help in making deals come together while helping to educate you in the process. Definitely a “teach a man to fish” kind of guy.

    Samuel Molina Jr. gave props to Michelle Graziano

    Michelle is a breath of fresh air! You can feel her smile through the phone when you call in and she is “always” smiling! She is also “ALWAYS” there! Michelle is the most consistent and reliable person I have met. She is always available with information and if she does not know it already, she knows who to get to take care of it. She arbitrarily checks in on us to see that things are o.k. and makes the job seem more like a family than a company. For that alone THANK YOU!
