I have referred clients to Corrine several times and she’s always responded within good time, which reduces the worry with many of my clients. They often have concerns about the legal process and what their questions answered quickly. Corrine is very professional and has this way of providing a calm environment for the client—much has to do with her professionalism, knowledge and the flexibility with when and where to meet. When you hire Realty One Legal you communicate directly with Corrine.
