Direct. Clear communication. Detailed and productive advice. Competitive fees. Down to earth and contactable. Not sure what else you need.
Constructing a landmark development has its own stresses.

They were very easy to deal with and always contactable.They drafted all the off the plan contracts for the sale of the 100 residential units, drafted our subcontracts, negotiated Agreements to Lease and the Leases, were available weekends in attending the project’s launch and competently advised us on all issues along the way including construction issues. They made the sale of the units and leasing the retail/commercial spaces seem as simple as selling a house and their services came at a very competitive price. In short, the quality of their service was next to none.
