"Thank you, Jan, for all your help, support, guidance, and most importantly, patience throughout the transactions. It actually happened. We got both properties, albeit not quite for a steal… but we got them! Not sure when we’ll get to work together again, but it’s been a real pleasure. I wish you and the folks at CBRE the best. I’ve enjoyed working with several of you over the years, so you never know, we may circle around one of these days and have a chance to do it again. Hope so!"
