8/16/2016 - RE: Client Testimonial: "On behalf of FOCUS Valuation Advisors and our client The Bancorp, I wanted to thank David Abraham and his team for exceptional work on a recent retail center assignment. David remained on top of things throughout the process despite many moving parts and various iterations of the appraisal. He was always available for questions and made revisions in a timely manner while working under tight deadline expectations. When real estate tax implications came into play, he looped in Josh Shillair in your Tax Appeal division. The client was pleased with the resources made available by Colliers, along with the teamwork and professionalism of your staff. It is these factors that make Colliers a “go to” for our commercial appraisal assignments. Please keep up the good work.
Wishing you all the best, Mark M. Strouse, MAI, AI-GRS - Principal - FOCUS Valuation Advisors"
