We feel very fortunate to have worked with Jim Tamblyn and Bill Mankin of Colliers International.  They had an extensive understanding of the marketplace, excellent negotiating skills and provided customer service that exceeded our expectations.  Selling commercial real estate which is usually wrought with stress and emotion was a fairly pleasant experience due to their experience, knowledge and professionalism.  I would certainly work with them again and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a broker to represent them.
