WHAT OTHERS SAY
“When I first called Resolution Point, I wasn’t sure what to expect. What I wasn’t expecting however was for Danny to answer his own phone and to take the time to talk with me right away. Beyond the impressive qualifications that Danny Burk brings to the table, the most noticeable quality about Danny is his humanity. He has a gentle and reassuring way about him, and he makes a process that can be both stressful and emotional more bearable. Danny knows how to make you feel comfortable, yet manages to keep things moving in a very professional and effective manner. If life had to take me down this road, I’m glad that it made me meet Danny and get involved with Resolution Point. In times like these, it’s nice to know that someone with both knowledge and charisma can help. Thank you.”
