    Hey Matt, thank you for all the hard work that you do. I’ve been following you for quite some time and have learned a lot.

    I only wish that you would also be inclusive of other states as in the fact that it’s not just happening down in Florida. It’s happening in California BIG time. Yet people that are being foreclosed on here think that the debacle is only in Florida. The media out here puts it that way too.

    Thank you again!
