Testimonials

Ancestry.com

“Ancestry.com selected Colliers to help us identify the location for our office space in Dublin and help negotiate the best terms once the location was identified. On behalf of Ancestry I want to thank Colliers and in particular Paul Finucane, for all their help throughout the process. We ended up redefining our short list on a few occasions and each time Paul addressed our needs with the same passion and helpfulness as the first location we looked at. His patience and guidance through the process were invaluable and we appreciated his well guided advice throughout, often going beyond the call of duty. We were very happy with the help provided by Colliers and would have no hesitation in recommending them or using them again in other projects.”

John Slyne, Senior Director, International Finance, Ancestry.com

KWE Ireland

"Involving Colliers International and Paul in our recent lease renegotiation took a lot of pressure away from KWE and added both valuable experience and a professional approach to the negotiation process. Their support was very efficient and results exceeded expectations."

 

Michael Roche, Financial Controller, KWE Ireland
