“I am in a state of shock regarding what the lease sold for. You worked so hard on this sale. I’m not sure if it was because you did it in memory of Peter, Russell, and myself and the family or if you just work this hard all of the time! Whatever it was, you and your team did a great job- you should be proud of yourselves!”
