Testimonials

“Matt, Dan and Andrew were true advisors to us in the sale of our marina portfolio. They worked closely with us for nearly a year to help us prepare the properties for market. Their process was tailored to our specific needs, including confidentiality, and resulted in multiple offers from several qualified buying groups. Just as important, their expertise was instrumental in handling any issues throughout this complex transaction. I highly recommend them to any owner looking for credible advice and market execution.”
- Dave Rozycki, Co-CEO (Retired) | Parkbridge Lifestyle Communities
