Memberships & Involvements
The Rating Surveyors Association
Various clients across all sectors of the property industry.
"We had lost faith with previous rating advisors and communication was at an all-time low. Colliers, and Daniel specifically, have worked very hard on our behalf explaining things clearly and have always acted in a professional manner, keeping us updated at every stage of the process" - Large Retailer
"Dan is always keen to help with a ‘no saving is too small’ attitude which makes a refreshing change." - Large Retailer
"All through the process you made sure I understood what was happening, what to expect and kept me updated each time a change came into effect. I felt totally taken care of. You just got on with the job of securing the refunds, allowing me to get on with running my business. Would I recommend you? Yes, most definitely!" - Independent Business
