Dear Mr Rozenberg,
Yesterday Sunday Dec. 9, 2018. I took your classes on Zoning Compliance and Urban Development Part I and Part II.
I can not thank you enough.

The classes were compelling, informative and comprehensive.. The written material made it extremely easy to follow some very complicated information. I was taking my last classes for continuing studies for my RE License. I am glad I saved the BEST for last...

Best Always,
