“Thanks to the entire team – we greatly appreciated your help and support over a 7-year span. We took a tough situation with the bankruptcy, changed the sponsorship of the properties completely, upgraded the manner of tenants we were dealt, upgraded the buildings, increased our occupancies, managed them perfectly and put the buildings in the best position possible to be sold. It is really all ownership can ask for and I want to thank everyone again for your work.”
