Betsy Bosiak Land Acquisition Specialist & Traveler
1. What drew you to Hoyle, Tanner?
I had always enjoyed working with the personnel at Hoyle Tanner.

How to put together estimates for Right-of-Way time and expenses.

Summer – it is much easier to look at properties to see what is there. You can’t locate items under the snow, plants, etc.
4. What’s the coolest thing you are working on?
I just finished an easement acquisition between a client and a utility company for a bridge project, and it was interesting because each of the parties involved had items they wanted to include, which doesn’t typically happen.

The warm weather and being able to get outside and work in my yard.
