Value-Driven Approach [Case Study]

Sold By Ryan France

“Tell Us What We Have to Do to Get the House” As soon as I leave here, I’m going straight to Home Depot to buy about a ton and a half of lumber. That’s what Chris told me as we were standing in the hall of preschool craziness, a while back, waiting for the classroom doors to open. Chris’s daughter, Elle, and my daughter, Maddy, are in the same class. Chris’s wife, Heidi, was Madeline’s...
