  • Sean went well above and beyond my expectations in consulting with me on the best approach to make this recent career move. I expected a good chat with some general advice and strategies, but Sean made himself available throughout the process and even after hours to answer questions and provide input at each stage of the process. He was genuinely enthusiastic and sincere in his support of me during this career move. I had no doubts of his integrity and desire to aid me in the way a good friend does. Sean will always be at the top of my professional contacts list, and I would not hesitate to work with him again.
