Testimonials:

"Duke and I have been involved with millions of square feet of challenging commercial real estate projects.  Duke always cares about our projects as much as we do and has a relentless "get it done" attitude delivered with enthusiasm and integrity.  Duke's involvement in our projects has been critical to our success."  Don Shoemaker, Franklin Partners, Naperville, IL.

"I have utilized Duke's services exclusively to both lease and sell commercial real estate for over 20 years.  One factor that differentiates Duke from his peers is that he clearly knows how to get the deal over the finish line.  He is extremely competent at handling all details of complicated transactions and never loses sight of the mission.  He has a handle on the market better than anyone I have ever worked with.  I am 100% confident in his knowledge and expertise; and know there is no better representation to be had in the industry."  John Holmes, Elston-Richards, Inc.
