“My feeling is that Ms. Bolen could lead the way in a lot of the public private financing in the multifamily markets as well as other real estate asset classes. She has an experience level that is not easily surpassed. The reality is more and more real estate has some government money involved and Ms. Bolen is truly an expert in that area.” – Daniel W. Aston, The Whitmore Company

In every incidence, without exception, she is easy to deal with, had the technical expertise to answer questions, able to respond quickly…and has always possessed a professional demeanor that both impresses and relaxes people.” – Judi Booe, Warren County
