Congratulations to Midwest HomesTM Test Drive winner Janette Herron of Prudential American Heritage Real Estate
in Elk Grove Village! Janette
won the $30 Starbucks gift card
for her quote below:

"I love this app, in fact, I purchased the branded version immediately after I downloaded it
and saw what it could do for
my clients. One of my best
clients is my husband. I sent
him the link as a tester to see what my clients would see
when they download the app
and brand it to me. Not only is it a great tool for instant contact to me, but the mapping feature is great! Thanks for the great app!
