Beverley McCartney - FirstEnergy Capital Corp.
"Colliers had our best interests in mind and took time to understand our requirements very well."
Alan Blott - Calfrac Well Services Ltd.
"Colliers represented our interests well, had suggestions going forward, reviewed every document, negotiated directly with the Landlord and kept to schedule with everything. Just it's always a pleasure actually."
Mark Tysowski - Harvest Operations Corp.
"They're professional, experienced and helpful. They understood the industry and helped us through the process, an area that we don't know much about."
Terry Tomkins - Parlee McLaws LLP
"Very knowledgeable, excellent service."
Michael Mezei - Mawer Investment Management
"Knowledge of market and professionalism"
Cindy Ries - Keyera Corp.
"The quality of service, the follow-up on outstanding issues and the availability on short notice to discuss issues and the level of services is what I would call exceptional."
Alf Sailer - Kos Corp Investments / ATK Oilfield
"Right from the very start our experience was excellent. We had contacted Colliers and by the very next day they had arranged for us to go and see about 8 different spaces and not only were they all very organized tours, in addition they had prepared a package very clearly outlining the size, the cost and so on so from the start our process was very pleasant and very well organized. I believe Colliers was acting on our behalf so we were their client and they remembered that through the entire process. That's important when you're not experienced in dealing with real estate very often."
Rod Lebbert - SW Resources
"Very capable staff, both professionally and personally, they know the market, very responsive, they are a pleasure to work with. Just very happy with the way it turned out, their breadth of knowledge on the business and support services that go along with the business were great. We wanted to do some renovations, I asked [Jim and Todd] if they knew any contractors and right away, boom, same thing when we were looking for some used furniture, said who can I talk to, they said "here these guys deal in used furniture". It was great."
