"Jeff Newcom allowed me to stay focused on my business while going through the process of acquiring, building out and moving my office space. Jeff’s knowledge engagement and follow through is unparalleled and I highly recommend Jeff and the entire Colliers team."  Ed Boyle, CEO of BOX Options Market

“Jeff Newcom and Holly Duran were instrumental in guiding and advising us in our office relocation.   From our initial meeting through our move, they  were our trusted advisors and consummate advocates. We will call on them again as our lease expiration approaches.  We highly recommended this Colliers team.”  Michael Marick, Parter at Skarzynski Marick & Black LLP

"Finding the right office space in a crazy market like Downtown Chicago is hard. I've worked with a couple brokers before without success, but Jeff made it all happen. We went through a number of options before we found the one with the right combination of layout, features, and cost. More than just negotiating the lease, he made sure everything both before and after our move. Jeff found a new home for Gate 39 Media that exceeds our needs and is one we can grow in. I highly recommend Jeff for any size corporate real estate needs."  Shane Stiles, President of Gate 39 Media

"Jeff and his team  were phenomenal to work with, from beginning to end. Jeff became an extended part of my team until we were moved into a new, demoed space suiting our specific needs. Jeff not only helped us compare and contrast potential spaces, but also helped us negotiate multiple complex leasing, construction and IT contracts. We will definitely look to Jeff's team for any future real estate needs."  Rebecca Sholiton Kahnweiler, COO Bonfire
