You scared the daylights out of my former landlord. They could not make head nor tails of your work. And, when the managers came to my apartment huffing and puffing about you, and how you didn't know what you were doing, they settled with me. And my wife and I are very happy with the deal they offered, which we accepted.
It only happened because of the work you did. The landlord only inspected my apartment and never did a single repair. The landlord did not address any of the lease or legal issues. All they did was bad mouth you, and say how you had been sued countless times.
This much I can say. If I had agreed to the landlord's original terms, it would have cost me over $4,000. What I finally settled to pay only covered some of the actual free rent I received, so fair is fair to repay that. But there was no termination fee, no court battle, no lingering doubts, no 30-day notice, and it is now completely over.
I am sure nobody else could do what you do, and especially for your price. In fact, I contacted somebody else who wanted $500 from me only to TALK to my landlord. That would have achieved nothing. But, Mr. Volk, your reputation precedes you, and your work justifies the reputation, and the results make you worth every penny you charge.
So I offered this letter without any request from you. I want you, and others, to know how much your work is appreciated. You provide a valuable service, and anyone would be a fool to look elsewhere. You need to be acknowledged, and you should take credit where credit is due.In appreciation
