Testimonials:

“My partners and I simply

want to thank you and your

team for all of your efforts

and hard work with both

our recent relocation (and

taking of additional space)

and our previous lease

renewal. Your expertise

and advice made the

process as painless as it

can be. Your knowledge of

the Houston market in

general and our complex in

particular were invaluable

to use in securing the best

terms possible. While I am

certain we could have

negotiated the lease

extensions on our own

(would any lawyer say

otherwise), I am equally

certain that the final result

would not have been as

favorable to us as it

ultimately was had Colliers

not been involved.”
