(I know, I am a details geek) I determined to also unfold it out. So I had a person place one particular in about a thirty day period ago and a different set just one in yesterday.
To my surprise, I could not see possibly assessment. So I achieved out to Google My Business. They sent me a return e-mail really quick stating that given that I was a new member, it would consider some time to see assessments. I replied rapidly that I have been a member for at minimum 5 years…
What was their following reply? Verify it out…
