"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 appointed DeVono because we knew they would care and take the trouble to understand our business, our objectives and help us deliver on our commitment to our clients and our people. The outcome of the process has been entirely positive and surpassed all of our expectations. We would always choose to work with DeVono."
"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."
"We have used DeVono as our property advisers for a number of years. Their greatest strengths lie in their ability to understand quickly what is required and to grasp all the relevant issues. They regularly ‘think outside the box’ and offer creative solutions to complex problems. We have no hesitation in recommending them."
"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."
