"We just love it. Charles is so nice, he has such a work ethic. From the get-go we felt very comfortable with him - you can trust him. "
- Annette & Cyrille, Halifax Regional Municipality homeowners

"I knew what I wanted," says Annette. "We were over 15 years here and 10 years at the other house . . . Charles went to town - there was no wasted space! We just love it. Charles is so nice, he has such a work ethic. From the get-go we felt very comfortable with him - you can trust him."
Cyrille adds, "The change is quite dramatic . . .
we finally got rid of the early '80s' decor & moved on to the 21st century."

"CLC deferred to us," says Annette. "They were very pleasant - we were very, very pleased.
Before they left they would clean up - we'd hardly know they were here."
