“We have settled into our new offices at One Sun Plaza thanks in large part to your valuable services. As you know, due to circumstances outside of our control, we were faced with having to relocate my law firm and wife’s firm, Davis Advisory Group, within a very short time frame. Our requirements were demanding. You were tasked with finding quality office space in the Journal Center corridor with occupancy in less than sixty days! You jumped in with both feet, located numerous possible locations and skillfully guided us through the selection process with stellar results. We couldn’t be happier with our new location. Thank you for a professional job well done.”

Leonard G. Espinosa / Espinosa & Associates, P.C.
