Client Testimonials


​"Kristina Metzger from the CBRE Data Center Solutions group has assisted SDG&E on very complicated data center related projects. The data center space is a unique skill set, and I was very impressed with Kristina’s knowledge of the market conditions both from a tenant and landlord perspective. She not only understood basic real estate dynamics, but was also a subject matter expert on the requirements from the user perspective that added tremendous value to our process. She was complete and thorough in her analysis and was able to articulate the technical requirements in a manner that made sense to our decision makers. I look to her and the CBRE organization as my “go to” solution provider for these types of assignments and would be happy to discuss her and the team’s capabilities with any prospective client.​"

- Jim Seifert, Manager of Corporate Real Estate, Land Services & Facilities, SDG&E

​"CBRE’s Data Center Solutions Group lowered Cox Communications existing rent expense by 25% and dramatically reduced the subjectivity to risk by renegotiating the legal language of our managed service contract. They provided the market intelligence needed to decipher that renewing in place was the best solution and created the competitive environment to negotiate the most aggressive terms. I highly recommend their services."
