Client Kudos for Karen

Project 4090: Karen did an excellent job!! She went above and beyond my expectations in the short amount of time she had to help me. Karen is definitely talented at what she does! I would recommend her to my friends and classmates anytime. I look forward to working with her again in the future.

Kind regards,


Project 4275: Thank you so much for your hard work and dilligence (hope I spelled this right). I look forward to working with you on my next papers. I wanted to follow through with my promise and pay you an extra amount for my last paper. I don't know what is in store for me, but I have a feeling I will be sending you many more papers. I hope you won't mind, but YOU DO AWESOME WORK!!
Karen responds to me right away and answers my questions almost immediately. She has been a tremendous help to me so far. I look forward to working with her in the future.

Project 4380: Mr Kidd, i am so impressed by the services EDITFAST has provided with the short notice i gave you. My editor Karen really went above and beyond, i am reading the paper and i see where i went wrong and know how to go about my grammatical mistakes in the future! I am very pleased with the work, i can not thank Karen enough as well as EDITFAST. This was a job well done and for sure it was worth every penny and i will spread the word with my friends and workmates.
Thank you,
Tina Kawooya

Project 4419: Hi Robert,

I absolutely had to let you know AGAIN how phenomenal Karen is. I just received my paper back from her and she is not feeling well at all. Karen went out of her way to edit my paper for me.....despite the fact that she is really sick. I just think she is awesome, and deserves more than 10 gold stars for her efforts.

Kind regards,
