Holding the same values is what builds trust.
I've found Terry to hold a lot of the values we hold. We found that important. We're on the same page and we respect that.
He was so patient and kind with all the questions we had.
I was pleasantly surprised with the diversity that Terry brought to us. He knew what he was talking about from day one.
We don't have to be worrying about what the future will bring us.
I don't think anyone can give any more testament to his trustworthiness. I trust him implicitly.
