Laura from Flat Rate Settlements provided efficient and excellent service. She communicated with me at every step of the settlement process and promptly replied when I had a question or sought clarification. As an Executor, I highly recommend both Laura and Flat Rate Settlements particularly when dealing property as part of a complicated deceased estate.
