Having known ms Perez and Mr Echeveste for a number of years, I can attest to their work ethics and reputation. I have worked with them in the past so it does not surprise me of their recognition as a top business. Their clientele is a who's who in the corporate world and they make sure that they get their money's worth. Having them in South Pas can only enhance the business community.
