"Charles assisted me in sourcing office space for my firm in the Galleria area of Houston. He was extremely knowledgeable about the market and was able to properly steer us to an ideal property for our needs. He was easily available and very helpful throughout the entire leasing process which made my life as a business executive much easier. Finally, his professionalism, communication skills and transparancy make it easy for all parties to put their trust in him and move deals forward in an efficient manner. I highly recommend Charles and will use his services again in the future when I have the need." - Ken Nimitz, Senior Vice President of Operations | Neptune Delaware Holdings, Inc.

Charles is the definition of a true professional and from personal experience as well as from other colleagues' results, can be freely given the highest recommendation possible." - Ted Edwards, President & CEO | T.F. Hudgins, Inc.
"It is a pleasure to recommend Charles after having a successful working relationship with him for over seven years. He delivers the highest level of professional service built on the basis of the relationship and fully working to understand our needs and what was most important. We have now used him multiple times to secure commercial leases and would now not go through the process without him. When working with Charles you can be completely confident that you will receive the best value based deal possible, not only from a net dollar standpoint, but from the inclusion or exclusion of multiple other items that I, and I am sure the average non-professional, would not think of." - Steve Swanston, Executive Vice President | John M. Floyd and Associates, Inc.
"Ever since the beginning of our relationship in 2006, your hard work, expert market knowledge and creative deal making have been apparent. Your intimate awareness of the lease document and the many nuances that comprise a deal of this magnitude enabled us to negotiate a below market rate in addition to extreme flexibility when dealing with our complicated growth plan." - Doug Burnham, Executive Vice President & COO | Houston Series of Lockton Companies
