"Your team’s data-driven approach, and attention to the key diligence questions at hand, enabled us the confidence to validate our investment thesis.  We were particularly impressed with the team who spent countless hours with us and really tailored the analysis, approach, and takeaways on our key questions.  The flexibility, dedication and data-driven approach that your team showed was exactly what was required to develop the materials that allowed us to leverage your deep understanding of the market for development activity (both commercial and residential, as well as public sector driven) in British Columbia.  We very much look forward to the next opportunity to work together."
