"We’re delighted to have found a home at Seven Dials Warehouse and a commercial real estate framework that is fit-for-purpose, and one that gives us space to grow in the future. DeVono Cresa helped us realise our ambition of providing a sustainable and ‘appropriate’ home."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
