"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."
"Having appointed DeVono to find our next high profile London office, 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 were very satisfied with the service provided. You helped us find the perfect office to meet our needs and were prompt and effective in negotiating the deal on our behalf."
"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."
"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."
