"We were very satisfied with the whole sale process and of course the end result. Colliers’ experience in getting us the right type of purchaser for the park was sympathetic to our needs of selling a family business of which we have loved for 35 years. The team offered us a smooth sale process with helpful communication between all parties. Thank you to all concerned."
