"Bob Allen and his team at Colliers has represented 22squared, inc., the largest advertising agency located in Atlanta, for three consecutive 10+ years leases. The Colliers International professional service and effective negotiation of our leases exceeded our expectations. In addition to knowing we had a good team, we enjoyed working with them and felt they represented our agency and us as individuals in the market place in a very professional manner. I cannot recommend anyone higher than Bob and his folks at Colliers."
