"It was a pleasure working with DeVono - the team were very professional, knowledgeable and provided the right advice when needed. The most important aspect was that you took time to understand what we were after rather than position everything on the market. I would not hesitate recommending you and your firm."
"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."
"We’re delighted to have found a home at Seven Dials Warehouse and a commercial real estate framework that is fit-for-purpose, and one that gives us space to grow in the future. DeVono helped us realise our ambition of providing a sustainable and ‘appropriate’ home."
"DeVono provided E.ON Ruhrgas with excellent support, guidance and valuable industry knowledge during the search for our new office location. Their service provided our Management Team with an extensive list of the options available both on and off the market so that we felt an informed decision could be made on our move. It is evident that DeVono is a dynamic company, who put the interests of the tenants as their sole priority in the London commercial office market place."
"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."
