"Evan really took the time to understand our unique set of needs which was really appreciated. He did a fantastic job of finding us a fantastic location that met all of our requirements and met our budget. What we wanted was certainly not easy to find and he demonstrated real commitment to getting us a successful result. He kept us updated with regular communications throughout the process and did a great job of navigating between the building owner and ourselves to make sure we were all on the same page at all times. I would definitely recommend Evan to other people looking for property." - J Willcocks, Director | Predator Free Wellington
