Today’s customers require far more from real estate professionals. The complexities of real estate transactions have grown along with the vast changes in the way in which companies conduct and operate their businesses. The new concerns with security issues that face corporate customers and tenants today have changed the way we evaluate the office space they need.
We work closely with our customers to identify those locations, buildings and spaces, best suited to meeting their requirements. Mr. Duryea keeps abreast of the new technologies, changing laws, and environmental guidelines enabling him to better tailor the real estate transactions he negotiates for his clients. Each client receives individual service and advice to meet their needs. Most of our current customers are old friends from prior projects. Repeat business is our lifeblood.
