To Whom It May Concern

Hello my name is Joshua Yount. I hope this email is not bothersome to you, and hopefully only resourceful and helpful. I am new to the beautiful Hill Country area, well, I have been here for 2 years. I am pretty much a jack of trades and would love to help you and your clients sell easier.

I have a partner who has been cleaning houses for quite sometime. Other real estate agents have used her services, her name is Carmen Maldonado, she is great and her customers love her, we would do great together on make ready projects.

If you ever need my service please do not hesitate to call me, my estimates are always free unless the location is far away. I think you would enjoy and gain benefit through working with me. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Respectfully,

Joshua Yount
