"With the myriad tools available to brokers, for me, the key ingredient to a successful partnership is how acutely our needs are heard and translated into action. The entire team at DeVono deciphered our ambitions with patience, pragmatism and good humour. Not only did they present options that answered the questions I had, they provided alternative directions informed by their local expertise, which, being based in the USA, was vital for me to be able to make solid, well-informed decisions. I would not hesitate to recommend."
"We’ve worked with DeVono for several years through various stages of our evolution. We’ve had to meet the challenges of COVID-19 head on including adjusting our real estate strategy. To understand our options, and how best to progress we turned once again to DeVono. They were always there, ready to guide us to ensure we got the best outcome for the business."
"I must also comment that the service received from DeVono has been exemplary. In what I have experienced to be the unpleasant world of estate agency it has been a real joy to work with you. You have been driven, proactive, reliable and extremely quick and responsive. The fact that you are pleasant to work with has been a bonus. Working with DeVono has been one of the very best customer experiences of my business career."
"Having appointed DeVono in March 2016 to find our next high profile London office from 2018, we have not been disappointed with their high level of service and meticulous attention to detail from the very first day, through to signing the Agreement for Lease and beyond. They assured us during the tender process that they would be right by our side all the way through and not just appointed to “do the deal” and this is exactly what we received."
"We really appreciated your help. We got the result we wanted at a speed we could never have achieved ourselves and we're very pleased that we engaged you."
