In doing so, we aim to arm tenants, owners, and landlords with the information necessary to plan for the road ahead. Below are a few steps we would take to help you make a plan for your business.

“Jessica went above and beyond at every turn to make sure that this got done,” he said. “Just the fact that we were able to sell it during a pandemic is a testament to Jessica’s motivation and passion for what she does and how hard she works for her clients. Owning two buildings during this time could have been a huge burden.”
