Lindsay Buziak

Some of the information on this case you didn't get quite correct. Lindsay did ask how the client got her information and Lindsay was told by the client that it was from a former client. Also, the client did have specific details in mind for what they wanted in the house. They went so far as requesting a nanny suite.
