Lonnie / Irwin…
I know I have mentioned to both of you before how much I appreciate the respect you have shown me, but I would be remiss if I didn’t bring it up again.
It is so refreshing to deal with real, honest individuals like yourselves, especially in a industry where there are so many shady people who are out to take advantage of others, and in business for all the wrong reasons.
In just the very short amount of time that I have gotten to know both of you, it is very obvious to me that you both are not only successful in your business careers, but more importantly your personal lives and relationships as well. I know a lot of that comes from the fact that you both care about people, but just in case you weren’t aware, that’s a very, almost extinct, quality these days.
Both of you treat others like you want to be treated and you extend them the respect they deserve…. Thank you!
Case in point, when I spoke to you today Irv, you immediately asked how I was doing and wanted to know what was going on with me. Then we had a great conversation about football, NFL free agency and your beloved Philadelphia Eagles. It was 100% genuine, and I knew without question that to you (and Lonnie) I am way more than just a number or a person who called to apply for a loan.
Just like everyone else in this world, I am not perfect and quite honestly, I don’t try to be. I’m just myself and I am blessed with the fact that I was raised by two great parents, and that I try to do the right thing and treat others the way I would like to be treated. Gentlemen… It is so nice to meet others who share the same qualities.
So once again… Thank you for proving there are still wonderful, honest and genuine people in this world.
