When it comes to working with you, Jeff naturally goes the extra mile. Once, on a Saturday, he drove many miles to the home of a terminally-ill client to help her make changes to her estate plan to protect some prized real estate. The client passed away a few days later, with her wishes set in place.
Another time, Jeff uncovered a $15,000 life insurance policy that a departed client’s family didn’t know existed. It happens more than you know.What He Does
