When we embarked on this project, we didn't know what we didn't know. Cresa brought together all the missing pieces and key players to the table. They helped us every step of the way and were always there, doing everything from A to B. My experience with Billy Hobbs and Dennis Compton was great and I'd recommend them to anyone else needing a broker or project manager.
