"Our second time using DeVono and again I was very impressed with the team - friendly, efficient and extremely commercial and honest. They understood the brief and worked hard to deliver the right property for our needs. In what was an unfamiliar area to me, they provided guidance on key issues and negotiated very good terms, highly recommendable."
"Our experience with DeVono and you specifically could not have been better. It was a relief to have an expert negotiating on our behalf and, most importantly, sticking with a long and difficult assignment."
"DeVono did an excellent job for On Demand from beginning to end. You showed patience as our requirements changed and understood what we looking for at each stage of the process. I would be very happy to recommend your services to other clients and would single out the first class service provided by your relocation team for particular praise."
"I have worked with DeVono for many years. I value their approach – always looking at the big picture, not just the deal. They consider the real estate challenges we face through our eyes, understanding not just the real estate reporting requirements but also the complexity of our organisation’s structure and stakeholders. I’m always very happy to work with the team and value their support."
"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."
