Client Testimonials


  • "The way you guys are leasing this project, you could probably move mountains." Bob Flaxman, Owner/CEO, Wateridge, Crown Realty Development
  • "We are extremely pleased with the excellent professional job by you and look forward to working with you on other real estate transactions. I am confident that you are truly leaders in your industry and know you would do the same exceptional job for other companies." Sue Eisner, Office Manager, McDermott, Will & Emery
  • "The walls are up, the furniture is in and we are satisfied customers.  I appreciate very much the care and skill you provided in what proved to be a long and difficult negotiation.  I look forward to recommending you to my colleagues in the entertainment industry as well as having you represent us in the future." Michael V. Lewis, Vice President, Intermedia Group, Inc.
  • "Carolco retained Jeff primarily because he listened to us.  The transaction could not have gone more smoothly.  The lender was clearly a pro at this type of thing, as was the buyer.  With Jeff we never felt that we were at a disadvantage.  The playing field was clearly leveled and what could have been a nightmare ended up being a breeze.  If the occasion occurs again when Carolco requires the services of a commercial real estate broker, we will not even bother to interview anyone else.  In my job I deal with many outside professionals and I am willing to make that statement about only a handful." Robert W. Goldsmith, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, Carolco Pictures, Inc.
  • "You stand out among all of the brokers as one of the most professional, honest and hard working brokers I have had the pleasure of working with." Richard J. Fazendin, Vice President, Director of Facilities, Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate
  • "Thanks for all the help and guidance over the past few months.  We couldn't have pulled this off without you.  And, in retrospect, I am really pleased that I chose you and your team to help us with this move.  Not only did we get it right, it was a lot of fun to boot.  Thanks to you and the whole team for making a somewhat unpleasant process very pleasant." Jordan Copland, Chief Financial Officer, Virgin Entertainment Group
