There is no way I can adequately tell you how impressed and joyed we were with our experience with The A-Team, specifically Aaron Chalmers and his team. We were in a very bad jam with our house, namely that it was a rebuild after the 2016 fire burned it down, and worse yet, we had already moved away. We absolutely had to sell the house no matter what, or we would be financially destroyed. Needless to say, we we're stressed beyond comparison.Aaron sat us down and explained his plan to sell our house. The market analysis he provided explained his plan, and gave well articulated comparisons to our house. We've moved many times in our life, and this is something I've never seen done. There was no hype, no used car sales tactics. Just facts, common sense, and a realtor who was motivated to make it happen.It's pretty damn hard to sell a house that doesn't exist. Even worse so when the builder was nothing but delays and excuses. Add one of the worst recessions to hit the Fort McMurray market. It caused a lot of stressed filled nights of tears. Aaron always was the beacon of positivity and assured us we would get through this. I genuinely believe a lot of other realtors cannot do what Aaron and the A-Team did for us, and sold our home. We now happily live elsewhere, with the stress of our rebuild, and the Fort McMurray far behind us.If you want a realtor who is just as driven to sell or buy a house as you are, and will give you assurance, communication, and will fight for you, go with the A-Team. I don't live in Fort Mcmurray anymore, but if I need another realtor, I'm calling Aaron for his opinion.TLDR: 92 stars out of 5, stop looking and hire these people.read more

My husband and I worked with Tom to purchase our first home. Tom was extremely knowledgeable, approachable, and incredibly generous with his time. He was always available to answer any questions and he always provided a professional opinion. Also, his ability to connect us with other key players in the industry (broker, lawyer, and inspector) made each step of the process happen seamlessly. Tom made the home buying process for us as painless as could be expected. I truly believe that his expertise was a huge asset to us during the entire process. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking to buy a home.read more

Our family would like to thank Erin Ogren for all she has done for us! Being a first time buyer, there was so much information and so many steps involved in the process, honestly there was no way we could have did this without her help. Especially being so far away, living in southern Alberta, Erin basically took charge of the entire process for us, we gave her our complete trust and she did an amazing job!!We got a great house, on a great price in the exact location we wanted. We were very comfortable, talking with Erin felt more like talking with a family friend. I could call or text her anytime day or night (and often did) and I knew I'd get an answer almost immediate.I would highly recommend Erin, she definitely went above and beyond, we cannot thank you enough for your hard work. Loved the housewarming gift as well, very thoughtful, cheers!!read more

I cannot even begin to describe how grateful we are to Erin Ogren of the A-Team! She has went above and beyond in our quest to return to Fort McMurray! She not only helped us find the perfect home in Parson's North, she made sure everything was done for us from afar while we were in Newfoundland planning our return to the city! We gave Erin our complete trust to help us buy a home and we are so very happy we did. From FaceTime chats to late night texts and early morning texts (time change oops!!), she was always, always on our side. She spent her time doing all of the things we would have done had we been here, and we are forever grateful for her amazing dedication to our family! To say we love our home is an understatement! We absolutely adore it!!! It's so perfect for our family and Logan is loving backing onto the park, and I am certain that Lennox will adore it when he's big enough to chase his big brother!!! Thank you will never be enough and I cannot say enough amazing things about her service and dedication to her clients! Thank you again for everything you did for us and to help us end the commuting life and have our family under the same roof again!!!read more

My wife and I are so very thankful to Breanna and Tom for their hard work, patience and understanding during the two year period it took to rebuild and sell our home in Fort McMurray. I’m not sure we could have made it through the very difficult period in our lives without them. They dealt with our lawyer and builder during the whole process under sometime difficult circumstances and always kept us informed in our absence and were there for us 24/7 when we had concerns or questions or just wanted to vent. Anyone would be hard pressed to find any team that could go beyond the lengths that the A Team went for us and I don’t hesitate for one second to recommend them to anyone looking for a great real estate team. We shall always remain thankful to them for all their hard work and dedication to us as clients.read more

They have huge hearts and it’s been a pleasure to watch their team grow. I know they have chosen people only that have their same values, morals and positive energy that they do. Tom is a very straight shooter with a big heart and breanna is one smart cookie with and extremely kind soul. Highly recommend them.read more

We could not be more thankful that we chose to go with Erin on the A-team to buy our very first home! Erin helped us filter out what we were looking for, she showed us some great house. When we decided to take a break and put our looking for a home process on hold. Erin was so understanding and kept in touch with us for those months that we weren’t actively searching. When we were finally ready Erin made a huge effort to find and show us homes that we loved. She was so patient with us, we weren’t really sure what to do since this was our first house and she went above and beyond for us. We had a bad experience at the lawyers and bank so I am extra thankful that we had such a supportive Realtor that we could trust and who really had our best interest in mind. Erin you are truly the best and we couldn’t be happier with our home! You would be lucky to have her on your side, we love you and thanks for always staying in touch!!read more

We met Breanna in December of 2017, when after viewing one of the A-Team’s amazing sale videos, I decided we had better take a look at the home in person! While we didn’t end up purchasing that particular home, it set things in motion for us to sell our current home and purchase our next. It really was a no-brainer when it came to deciding to list with The A-Team, Breanna’s listing presentation inspired knowledge, confidence, and a complete sense of trust. Thanks to the A-Team’s awesome marketing skills, we had a ton of interest and even a couple offers early on, but we put our trust in Breanna and ended up selling our home at the perfect time, for the perfect price! Thank you Breanna, for making the sale of our home as stress free as it could have been, it truly was a pleasure working with you!read more

Breanna guided us through the selling process and helped us sell our house in less than one week. In the past we had sold 3 out of province homes privately so we were hesitant to use a realtor, but believed it was necessary in Fort McMurray. Breanna was professional, very knowledgeable, and well prepared. She provided realistic market information that helped us price our home appropriately. We also really liked that she worked with a team which we believe helped give our home more exposure. The marketing she provided was excellent. I would most definitely use Breanna again and strongly recommend her if you want your house sold.read more

My husband and I worked with Denise to buy our new home in Fort McMurray. From the start we were thrilled with her ability to understand what we were looking for, our must haves, and things we didn't like. Often she was more aware of what we did and did not like well before we were. Her dedication and patience to find the perfect fit for us made the entire process enjoyable - it took A LOT of home showings. Once it came time to make the offer, due to the type of sale, it was complicated and Denise helped us navigate with support and information. Highly recommend Denise as your realtor for your next purchase or sale!read more

We have bought and sold a number of times in both Calgary and Fort McMurray. I have completed the buy/sale process independently, with a discount realtor, and regular realtors. Previous experiences with full cost realtors have left me disappointed and inspired me to take the risk of doing it on my own. Timing and location forced me to seek out a realtor for my last purchase. I was fortunate to find the A-Team. The experience from beginning to end was great. Tom understood my our busy schedules and used all of our time to the upper most efficiency. We got the perfect place for us at a great price. I have never had a home purchase go as smoothly as this one. Needless to say, I would definitely recommend Tom (we already have) and I would absolutely use the A-Team for all future real estate needs in Fort McMurray. Thanks Tom!read more

We could not be more thankful that we chose to go with the A-team to buy our very first home. Our first meeting with Erin we did a buyers consultation and we were both blown away on how educational it was. we could tell right off the bat how honest and genuine our realtor was. Unfortunately we had a minor setback and had to wait a couple more months to buy a home , so we put our looking for a home process on hold. Erin was so understanding and kept in touch with us for those few months that we weren’t actively searching. When we were finally ready Erin made a huge effort to find homes that we loved. Well she certainly did a fantastic job because we bought the first home we seen and completely fell in love with it..we did look at other homes but nothing compared. Then the dreadful day of putting an offer in and going back and fourth. I’m so thankful that we had a supportive Realtor that we could trust and who really had our best interest. Erin you truly made this entire experience enjoyable and not stressful in the slightest. We are over the moon happy that we found the home of our dreams and it would not have been possible without our amazing realtor from the A teamread more

With my fiancé’s work schedule, she made sure to accommodate it every step of the way! Erin even got our home inspector to come after hours to accommodate us. She keeps you updated through the whole process and answers any and all questions you throw at her! We can’t thank her enough for finding our perfect home!read more

I am a first time buyer and Tom was the most patient person I ever met in my life. The whole process started slow due my own insecurities, got a bit faster in the middle of it and in the end Tom and I were in the same pace. Everything happened that way because Tom constantly advised me on several things, allowing me to build my own knowledge and even discover myself on this new real state world.After a lot of set backs and unsuccessful offers, we finally found a good place and Tom diligently worked towards the success of the purchase. He constantly checked with me, constantly advised and shared his thoughts and constantly offered help for whatever I needed! From contractors to lawyers, he made my first purchase a breeze.I have nothing but positive things to say about Tom and if you are uncertain about hiring him... I suggest you meet him at least once and let him work his magic. It really works!read more

Working with Tom at the A team exceeded any of my expectations. As a first time homebuyer, I was not familiar with the terminology or the best process people to involve. Right away Tom was incredibly friendly and took time to sit down with me to determine what would be a good fit for me. He even recommended a lot of things I should be looking at which I greatly appreciated.Tom was willing to meet me even if it was out of his way as I was busy with work. He was very helpful in explaining the entire process and really relieved my stress level even though I was on a very tight budget I truly believe his expertise’s is why I own my new home that I love! I would’ve ended up with something I didn’t like if it wasn’t for him and this is without exaggeration.read more

After being recommended by close friends to use The A Team for our first ever home search I could not be happier with the outcome. Our agent, Tom Albrecht, has been one of the most genuine, kind and honest individuals i have had the pleasure having work for me. With Tom I felt like I was working with him to learn and find the right property, not being lead to simply buy something and be on my way.Professional with a personal touch would be the best way I could describe it to anyone. Tom was honest and upfront from beginning to end and without a doubt in my mind was instrumental to us getting the best deal we possibly could for a home that we love.If you or someone you know is looking for a home and is unsure of who to choose as an agent I highly recommend choosing The A Team - you will not be disappointed.read more

Erin Ogren is the BEST Real Estate Agent in Fort McMurray! Erin is very PROFESSIONAL, INFORMATIVE, and ACCOMMODATING. Through previous experiences that I have dealt with with other Realtors, Erin has SURPASSED my expectations and gave me the FULL A-TEAM EXPERIENCE! One of the many things that i liked about having Erin as my realtor was the constant UPDATES about the daily COMMUNICATION between other parties to close the deal. Erin walked me through the process of buying a home that made me feel as if i was in GOOD hands and taken CARE of. So that I could continue to focus on my work and knowing that Erin was looking out for my best interest. Lastly, my absolute FAVORITE attribute about Erin was that she was able to accommodate my long work schedule. THANKS again Erin! You made buying a home a breeze!read more

THESE AGENTS ARE UNBELIEVABLE!!! Brianna WORKED SO ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR US!!!! Our house was an incredible challenge to sell due to all the work it needs, (it was our parents we were selling for their estates) and we had little to no interest due to all the effort it needs. She worked day and night to help us sell it and called us daily to give us updates and feedback from people that would view the home. Tonight it was officially sold!!!!! It means a lot to us as it’s one of the final steps to closing our parents estate. If anyone is ever wanting to sell a home, Brianna is the best agent in Fort McMurray to do it for you!!! Thank you Brianna for all of your hard work!!!!!read more

From the moment we first had contact with the A-team we felt relaxed about the experience of finding our new home. We wanted to find the perfect family home to raise our two young boys in and Erin succeeded in helping us do just that! Erin was professional but still very personable and approachable. She took the time to ensure she knew exactly what we were looking for in a home. She was great with our kids; Spending time with them as we took our time looking around houses or paying attention during home inspection. Erin was very knowledgeable about the housing market and she was open and honest about anything she may suspect or know ensuring that we made the best decisions possible about buying our home. Once we found our home Erin went above and beyond ensuring everything fell into place for us right down to measuring windows for blinds, where to get the best deals and websites for purchasing furniture. After loosing our house in the wildfire this is our happy ending and we believe Erin played a huge part in making our house hunting dreams come true! If you are in the market to find your dream home we highly suggest contacting The A-team to have an all around excellent experience. Thanks Erin!read more

My girlfriend and I had the absolute pleasure of working with Tom and Erin with the purchase of our first home. And I don’t think we could have picked two better people to work with. They were very patient and caring when dealing with all of our first time buyer questions and always replied or called us back within minutes. They made us feel like we were the only clients they were working with even though there plates were extremely full. Thank you for all your hard work guys!! 🙂read more

You folks TRULY are a one of a kind team! Dale and I have sold a number of houses over the years and we have NEVER had such an exceptional real estate experience as we have had with you guys-- which is saying a LOT since we sold our house in a buyers market (never easy to do). You folks impressed us from the first meeting as you had a REAL analysis of the market backed by stats and numbers and a real look at the general economy of the area. It made us feel like you weren't just telling us what you "thought" the market was doing but rather that you "knew" what the market was doing and could prove it. Also having dedicated "buyer" and "seller" agents really made us feel/see that our agent was working for us ONLY and that they would get the absolute best sale price that they could. Denise was so wonderful to work with-- we attempted to pull some REALLY stressful deals together that tried more then our patients. She was level headed, balanced, business focused and able to work along side us no matter how emotional things got for us due to the stress of a declining market! Denise and the team gave us the best experience we have ever had! Would recommend you folks to anyone without hesitation!read more

If you don't use the A-Team to buy or sell your home you are making a huge mistake. Tom was an absolute delight to deal with. He made the process of buying a home smooth and painless. His knowledge of the market is second to none which got us an amazing price on the home of our dreams. He guided us through the whole process with great advice. He also helped us prepare for all the little things that you don't really think about when you move. I really can't say enough good things about him and his team. Thank you Tom!! You are the best.read more

We first met Tom Albrecht over a year ago when we started laying out our home buying plan and because we came from a different country with different rules and procedures, as expected, our questions abound not to mention our worries and financial status. Do we have enough machinery to begin with? When we laid down all our weak points to Tom, he patiently and courageosly embraces them all regardless of who we are and what we have at that time.Fast forward, words cannot express how grateful we are to have Tom as our agent, for helping us out in finding our dream home. Tom's patience is beyond measure! Great man indeed! Other agents might have given up on us but he choses to stay and without his positive influence we might have given up as well. We sincerely thank Tom and The A-Team for bringing us to a place we can finally call "OUR HOME".�. We highly recommend Tom and The A-Team. Cheers to our #canadiandream-Rommel and Emelitaread more

My boyfriend and I worked with Paul Cairns with the A team to purchase our first home. Paul was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and honest when it came to assessing the quality and value of each property we viewed, the strengths and weaknesses of each potential house, and in guiding us through the negotiation process. He was more than happy to accommodate when we felt we needed just one extra viewing, and was respectful of the budgetary restraints we set when we decided to start looking at properties. In the end, we are in a home we absolutely love and feel great about the purchase we made. We are appreciative of the time and effort that Paul put in as our realtor and would not hesitate to recommend him to any friends or family. Thanks Paul!read more

We used Paul Cairns to help us find a house and he was everything you would expect from the A-Team. Paul's wealth of experience, as well as his friendly personality and calm demeanor really helped us throughout our search. He was available in the evenings after work, and although I know he was busy with other clients, it always felt to us that we were the only ones. During the later stages of our purchase when Paul was on vacation for a few weeks, Tom checked in at least a few times a week to see how things were going and to ask if he could help in any way. This is the way businesses should treat their customers and the A-Team isn't just a marketing term, it's the real deal with these guys. So Paul and Tom, thanks for all your help, and dedication to your customers, I would recommend you guys to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.read more

For prospect clients who are reading this, you can't JUST rely on your Realtor to do everything for you. Just a disclaimer: do some research yourself. If you are looking for down-to-earth, helpful, fun, and knowledgeable Realtor, who aims to release your stress (the only thing missing was massage service, maybe?) - then call Tom. He made me feel like I was his only client.I give Tom 5-stars because he is an awesome guy. He did make me feel comfortable throughout our time together. We had fun looking at houses, we literally ripped the pages of the houses we did not like and kept the ones that we liked. He gave me the advice that I asked for. As a first time buyer, I needed all the advice I can get. He wasn't pushy in giving his biases; I actually had to ask for it. Everything was clear and he took time to really get to know what I wanted before just blindly showing any house that I asked to see. His videos are awesome; it makes you see the houses better than any pictures. I just love the guy, I hope we can be friends forever!!Maybe this is a Tom review because I only really worked with him, but in any case, 5-stars!read more

We met Tom and Breanna before the evacuation, we were very impressed with their knowledge of the market and providing us with all the information needed to make our decision. They sold our house the same day the sign went up, then had to leave town and deal fell through. They worked hard getting our house back on the market and again had an awesome response through Facebook and showings and again sold our house almost immediately! Breanna was amazing through all this, very energetic, encouraging and supportive!

I was very happy to have them show my home and they worked very hard with the video and brochures and going door to door on my street. Brenna was always available if I had questions, I never had to wait any length of time for her to answer my call or text.

I first met Tom when the A Team was just starting up. He came knocking door to door in our newly developed area to introduce himself as he also lived nearby. I continued to watch them grow on social media. When the time came to list our home I knew we had to use them. They went above and beyond what I had experienced in the past when selling a home. A very thorough market analysis and explanation of where they felt things were going. They explained in detail how a price is determined for a home to go on the market and provided numerous comparables. This is important - many people, myself included always compare to what they feel is a similar home and wonder why the difference. I felt very comfortable using them. Breanna was always available no matter how little the fear or concern. She was a shoulder to listen to these concerns and maybe even the odd tear. I would highly recommend them!read more

Simply the best! When we thought there was little hope of selling our home in the FM market, we met the A Team. We contacted Paul and he brought the team together to start our journey. Tom and Breanna are young, fresh, professional, and have bags of integrity, innovation and energy. They explained everything so clearly and we all understood the challenge. Then came the video, the video that excited us and made us sad at the same time. We were leaving our beautiful home, that we had put our hearts and souls into but we saw it for what it was - an amazing home and opportunity for someone else to enjoy. Thousands of people watched it! Again and again, because it was quite simply, awesome. The A Team helped us get our confidence back. But that was just the start. The hard work came after that, and then the fires. It hasn't been easy and at times it has been extremely stressful but thanks to Breanna's relentless hard work for her clients (Tom is not a bad stand in 😉 we successfully negotiated a sale. If you need a great realtor, don't go anywhere else. This team is the A Team!!On a personal note - Tom and Breanna - you are simply the best. It took us a few years to find you but we are so glad we did. You knocked it out of the park right from the start with the video - we knew at that point, things were going to be different with you. We felt like you cared, probably because you really do. Don't change, no matter how hard it gets - stay true to yourselves and do what you believe in, because more and more people will see the difference you make! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts 🙂read more

Not to sound like I'm stealing this review, but we also first met the A Team at an open house with Breanna. She approached us in a way that no other realtor had, and actually showed care for what we were looking for, rather than seeing us as another client that she could sign like almost every other open house we had been to. Breanna put us in touch with her awesome husband Tom and the rest is history. Tom knew that after the evacuation that the market would be hot so he wasted no time in returning to town and helping us secure our first home. I would seriously recommend The A Team to anyone looking to buy or sell here in town.read more

He also help guide us into completing the sale in the most time efficient manner in this ever changing market.

My wife and I were already pretty sure that we were going to use the A-Team to buy our first house when we happened to drive by one of their open houses. That's how we first Breanna who brought Tom over to meet us and our little journey began.Tom did an excellent job of explaining the entire process to us, gave us great advice all the way through and used an approach to home buying that blew our minds. It wasn't at all what we were expecting but he definitely raised the bar on our expectations. I always felt Tom was ready and available to assist, he did a fantastic job of working around our schedule and making efficient use of our time.We've been at our new house for just over two months now and I still catch myself standing in the full open concept main floor,that I so badly wanted, smiling and happy.

As a seller during this tough period in the Fort McMurray real estate market, The A Team (Breanna and Tom) were able to sell my home in 37 days. The decision to sell was a tough one for my family, but the A Team took into consideration our emotional state during the enrire process and always represented our interests with excellence. In addition, they consistently went above and beyond their normal duties.Given, the current market we are happy to have chosen realtor's who only accept an "A" for everything they do and focus on delivering results. Breanna can always be reached by text, phone and email. The client is constantly updated and is never left to guess what's happening. At the same time the A Team always seek feedback during the process and not after the fact.I have no hesitation in recommending the A Team to my friends and family! Their name is truly representative of the service you receive, nothing but the best!read more

The A-Team Fort McMurray has been an absolute pleasure to work with. I had the great opportunity to work with Paul Cairns who was incredibly poised, professional, extremely knowledgeable and took his time with me as a first time home buyer. From the initial listing I saw posted on Facebook to closing, he was my go-to for any and all questions I had. I highly recommend Paul Cairns and can't wait to work with him again in the future. Thank you A Team for setting the bar incredibly high and being so so patient with a rookie home buyer. I'll be sure to tell everyone I know about my great experience and that you guys are truly the best. Sincerely, a very happy new home owner - Kelseyread more

It was really nice to find an agent like Tom who really took time explaining to us the home buying process in details. The checklist helped us a lot to be organized. Tom also gone beyond his duties by helping us to move some of our heavy furnitures and also answered our questions regarding condo docs. It was a great experience for first time home buyer like us. Thank you!read more

We loved working with The A-Team Fort McMurray and highly recommend them to all our friends. We really appreciated how Breanna, Paul and Tom use market research and are systematic in how they assessed the value of our home.Breanna went over and above in the selling of our home. She took care of details and meeting with contractors to get quotes when we weren't able to. She made the selling process far less stressful than it could have been. She kept us in the loop every step of the way and never left us wondering what was going on. Working with the A-Team also meant there was always someone in town to take care of details and to make sure there was access to our property for showings.In our experience of both buying and selling Paul, Breanna, and Tom are a phenomenal team. They are professional, detail oriented, effective and are people with integrity. So enjoyable to work with them!read more

My husband and I are proud new home owners thanks to Tom from The A-Team! I met Tom almost two years ago when I came up to Fort McMurray. I was immediately impressed with Tom's knowledge and professionalism. He explained the market, the house buying process and provided lots of information for my husband and I to consider when deciding where to start out in Fort McMurray. My husband and I decided to rent first but became friends with Tom and Breanna, and were there for the launch of The A-Team. We continued to keep in touch with Tom about the market and Tom was patient, and we never felt any pressure to buy. When we finally decided to start the home search after almost two years, it was clear to us that we wanted to work with Tom. As new home buyers, we relied on Tom for his experience and his ability to clearly explain new concepts, which for us, was everything about buying a home. Tom listened to what we wanted, and understood what was important for us, and was the one that found us our house! Tom was readily available via call or text, often after working hours when my husband and I were home. Throughout negotiations, Tom kept us up to date on what was happening, and was there for us during the exciting waiting period. Tom took the stress out of buying a home and made it fun! I am very happy with my experience with the A-Team. I would recommend them to anyone who is buying or selling a home.read more

Enter the A-Team and specifically Tom Albrecht, professional buyer’s agent.It was a pleasure working with Tom Albrecht; he provided personalized and professional assistance to our family throughout and made helpful suggestions to make the process smoother.Tom is easy to work with, a great communicator, and available for phone calls, texts, and/or emails.Tom carried out his responsibility in a superb and excellent manner. We feel very fortunate to have Tom Albrecht represent our family.I would highly recommend Tom Albrecht as your real estate agent for many reasons; the most important would be his commitment to his clients, his flexibility and his honest assessment of the local real estate market.read more

I've known Tom for around 2.5 years now and Breanna since she joined him on the A-Team. In that time Tom has helped guide me through 3 purchases and on each of them his wealth of experience, detailed knowledge of the market (especially in the recent turbulence it has been experiencing) and strength as a realtor have been invaluable assets.I have watched him grow and develop over the years until he and the A-Team could truly call themselves world class real estate agents. The man I knew 2.5 years ago ran predominantly on a high energy model, these days he still has that energy and will still put in as many man-hours as are needed to get the job done to a quality that meets his exceptional standards however that youthful exuberance is now also tempered by experience gained through countless transactions and supported by the all star team that he's been building.Tom likes to call me his 100% investor client and as an investor and as an investor dealing in real estate is not a game to be trifled with lightly. It is a war with 3 key ingredients needed to ensure I can get the house I'm looking for at the best price possible. Knowledge of the terrain is critical and Tom is constantly trying to stay ahead of the pack in terms of seeing how world and local events are impacting our local housing markets. Speed is another critical element of ensuring I get the deals I'm looking for and Tom has always been able to deliver expert advise to ensure that time is never a constraint when I'm making my offers. Finally Tom brings with him an irreproachable philosophy that his clients are first and foremost on his mind and he will do his utmost to ensure that your expectations are meet and exceeded and that your interests are always top priority.read more
