I feel I must take this opportunity to express my extreme satisfaction, nay delight, at both the deal you have found and brokered on our behalf and the service we have received.
The office space we have achieved for our budget is far bigger and better than we would ever have expected- and far better than we would have managed on our own. Your fee has been very, very worthwhile to the Cascaid Group.
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.
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 worked on an exclusive basis with DeVono on this project to relocate to bigger premises in the City.
It took us less than 1 month to identify a perfect property in a prime location and less than 8 weeks to complete. We had a definite time limit to work to as our current lease was terminating for refurbishment and we had no fall-back position.
Our team at DeVono understood our requirements straight away and, once the heads of terms were agreed (in a matter of days), performed all of the negotiations on our behalf with little input from me and achieved all of the major points in the contract that we wanted.
Post completion DeVono were attentive in ensuring that the landlord met his obligations on a timely basis.
As a result we felt that we received a first class service from DeVono and have very happy staff in a bigger, smarter office and already we can see the productivity gains arising from this.
I would not hesitate in recommending the services of DeVono. They were superb.
Having appointed DeVono Cresa 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.
DeVono Cresa have a solid professional relationship with many landlord’s agents and property owners - their network is fantastic. The negotiations were not battle-like as if we were sitting in a war zone but professional and well composed and articulated. It showed to me the great mutual respect between our future Landlord and DeVono Cresa which was a refreshing experience.
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. Your independence through the supplier selection was invaluable and the clear and thoughtful advice you were able to provide helped us to overcome the many challenges we encountered in the programme.
I would be very happy to recommend your services to other clients and would single out the first class service provided by your Relocation Management team for particular praise."
DeVono Cresa helped us greatly with finding and creating our first real office, making it a fantastic place to work everyday for 40 people. Amazingly, we have already outgrown the space because we are growing so fast! When thinking about our next move, there was no question that we would put our trust in their professional and expert hands once again.
Two things were important to us when selecting someone to find us our new corporate home: competence and trust. DeVono's competence speaks for itself not only in the remarkable growth and success that the company has had in such a short space of time, but also in the quality of the deals that the company is able to achieve for its clients working on their exclusive behalf. Trust is something that grows: in the way that.
All of the DeVono team members treated each one of us involved in the relocation project in the way they accommodated our changing requirements; in the way that they respected our budgets and our deadlines. Competence is something that many commercial agents have - even if DeVono have the edge. Trust in commercial agents, on the other hand, is something I would only give to DeVono.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work on our behalf. We are very pleased with the final terms agreed, and we recognise that we could not possibly have achieved this outcome without your help and expertise.
We are looking forward- at long last- to moving to our new premises.
Thanks you once again for your help.
DeVono service was top class ... you are in danger of giving agents a good name!
We are delighted have found a home at Seven Dials Warehouse and a commercial real estate framework that is not just fit-for-purpose, it enables us space to grow in the future. DeVono Cresa has helped us to realise our ambition of providing a sustainable and ‘appropriate’ long term home for the business.

We came from the US to an unfamiliar territory. DeVono provided us with a very personal and professional service that exceeded expectations. In short, it was spot on!
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.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the DeVono team for all your efforts in helping us find suitable office space.
I was very impressed with the efficient and professional service that you provided us, considering our demanding office requirements. The turn around time was very impressive and the market knowledge you provided us with helped us to meet our deadline.
I believe without your help we would not have been able to conclude this matter as efficiently and successfully. I look forward to working with you again in the future and will not hesitate to recommend DeVono to others.
DeVono did a great job for us, covering both the office searches and lease negotiations.
I felt like we were in safe hands with friendly and efficient people who knew and understood the market and fought our corner in negotiations. I would certainly recommend them.
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.
From a Relocation Management perspective, the relocation was managed in a timely and professional manner with an eye always on the bottom line. They provided good recommendations for contractors and suppliers and made a time-consuming and difficult process almost enjoyable!
We worked with DeVono to find our new office space in EC2, and we couldn't have done it without them.
Our agent worked tirelessly and creatively on our behalf, everything he showed us was relevant to our requirements, and we're confident that he negotiated the best possible deal with our new landlords.
We're delighted with the space we've now leased. If we have to move again, it will be with the assistance of DeVono.
I would like to thank you very much with all the help and guidance you gave us in search of our new office space.
We did not have a clue about the property market whatsoever and you also managed to negotiate an excellent deal with our landlord.
You were most helpful throughout the whole process and saved us considerable time and effort and exceeded our expectations.
I would like to thank you very much for all your help and support that you gave us throughout the process.
We selected DeVono to project manage our move because they were able to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the process for our business relocation. Their approach and attention to detail in coordinating and managing the move enabled us to focus on our day to day business.
The relocation of our business was seamless, stress free, on time and to budget all done very professionally.
It's no exaggeration to say we couldn't have done this without you, I personally would have gone insane without having your help & support.
Throughout it all you were the one company I felt I could truly rely on to give me an honest & accurate picture of what was going on. With your help I have made some great contacts & learnt invaluable information about your industry.
Thank you very much indeed for all your sterling efforts; we couldn't have done this without you!
You did a great job for us, and as you know I have already been recommending you to friends and colleagues who are looking not only for a good deal, but for a professional and cost effective service.
DeVono did a great job on our behalf and I appreciate all the hard work that was put in.
We will certainly give DeVono a call next time we are looking to move offices.
As a self-confessed high-maintenance client, I’m acutely aware that I typically ask for the impossible; in scope, in economics, in ambition. 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.
Luke and the entire team at DeVono Cresa 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 Luke and his team, and look forward to our next encounter.
Given a very short time frame to work from. DeVono helped source our new location, negotiate a fantastic deal and finally project manage the move to a very good standard.
It was a pleasure to work with a company who understands the commercial property market and works tirelessly on behalf of the tenant.
I was impressed by the service I received from DeVono when it came to finding new offices. They considerably reduced the stress, hassle and time that this process would have otherwise involved and we are chuffed with the end result.
Now all the dust has settled I would like to thank you very much indeed for all the help you gave me during the acquisition and purchase of our new offices. With your guidance it became a totally stress free and painless process.
When I first decided I needed to buy a commercial property I honestly hadn't a clue where to start. On contacting numerous agencies via the Internet I became very despondent about the slow pace, and their indifference to my needs, that is until you returned my call. You almost literally took me by the hand and guided me through the property searches, offers, purchase, and remained wholly available for advice and help after completion. I am very grateful to you and very happy with our new offices.
DeVono were an excellent representative for Toppan in negotiations with the landlord/agents. Even when things did not always seem to be going according to plan, through no fault of DeVono's the team remained optimistic and good-humoured, and never lost focus.
Teams like that are rare and they are worth their weight in gold!
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.
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.
I am writing to thank you for your help during Oakleigh Consulting's recent search for new London office rental.
I greatly appreciate the searches you undertook and the guidance you gave. You developed very rapidly an understanding of our needs, so that you were able to focus our attention on suitable offices. I was particularly impressed with the depth of your knowledge of the London property market.
Importantly, I valued your independence, which meant you were able to advise us objectively and represent our interests in negotiating the best deal possible. I can assure you that I shall have no hesitation in calling on DeVono's services the next time I need London offices.
Just a short message to thank you and your colleagues at DeVono for your assistance in finding and securing our new offices in Great Tower Street.
Throughout the process, you were extremely patient and understanding of the problems we were facing. With your support, we managed to find premises that not only were suitable for us in terms of size and location, but also fell within our tight budget.
Thanks again for your pleasant and efficient service throughout.
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.
We decided to use DeVono on an exclusive basis given their market leading status of being the only agent acting solely on behalf of tenants.
They were extremely efficient, not only in terms of providing a clear list of potential sites that fulfilled our brief, but also in turnaround times for negotiation and follow on questions. I would recommend the use of DeVono for all property searches and would always insist on them being at the negotiating table.
