Testimonials

"...I have worked with real estate advisors from around the world.  We have high performance expectations for our service providers, including real estate advisors.  Colin has exceeded these performance expectations.  He has a thorough understanding of the market and is a skilled negotiator."

Microsoft - Barney Kinzer, Group Manager, Real Estate & Facilities

"I have worked with a number of advisors around the world and I must say you would rank at the top!  Your willingness to listen to our ideas and then offer advice based on this made the process work for all of us.  There are not many advisors out there that are willing to leave their ego at the door and be a partner in the process..."

EMC - Dan Ryan, Director of Real Estate

"As the process evolved your depth of market knowledge and trends became evidently apparent.  I was also impressed by the fact that you gave considerable thought to the strategy and execution of the negotiation which comforted me in knowing that we had chosen the right person for the assignment.  Accountability is paramount and you did exactly what you said you were going to do to complete our leasing requirements."

Technicolor - Jon Robertson, VP Vancouver Operations

"Your ability to understand and position the gap between the Landlord's expectations and the Tenant's ability to pay was very perceptive and assured that discussions were always solution-based. Not only did you create the right strategy for our successful end goal but your positive work style, experienced advice and negotiation insights were invaluable to the successful outcome. You clearly bring a joy and a dynamic approach to your work and we look forward to working with you again in the future."

The University of British Columbia - Stephen Owen, QC, PC Vice President External, Legal and Community Relations
