Client Testimonials

"I thought you and your team did and outstanding job from the presale due diligence through to the final closing of the deal.  Recognizing the complexity of the real estate itself being the large number of tenants and individualized properties, we were particularily impressed with your firms accurate presentation which played a major role in us achieving our final disposition objectives."

Consolidated Properties Ltd.

"We would like to thank the CB Richard Ellis Due Diligence and Closing Group, in particular the efforts of yourself (Geoff Mar) and Mr. Ken Westhaver, for its assistance in the closing of the sale of 520 - 11th Avenue SW.  Your background as a barrister and solicitor and Ken's relationships at The City of Calgary were very helpful in assisting the Purchaser in its efforts to satisfy the lender and in obtaining responses from The City of Calgary regarding the various survey issues that arose.  It was also of great assistance to have a knowledgeable and capable group interceding on behalf of all parties and acting as an intermediary between ourselves, the Vendor's Calgary counsel and the Purchaser's Vancouver counsel."
