- "I want to take a minute to write to you about Sean. It’s easy to give praise when things work out but had we failed to close on our property I would still tell you that Sean is an excellent professional. He’s not just willing he’s eager to work at his job. He doesn’t balk at quantitative analysis and he doesn’t get discouraged. He brings nothing but positive energy to the table. I’ve had numerous agents who were inept negotiators. Sean was steadfast and determined and he also tried to push us when he felt it was warranted. In addition, Sean repeatedly sought ought the thoughts and opinions of others, pushing them to deliver insight and information. Again, not everyone is comfortable admitting what they don’t know but Sean was not shy about reaching out to you or anyone else who he thought might be able to help us. We knew you were there as a resource and very much appreciate the critical role you played in helping our project.   Finally, with respect to Sean, he is a man of very high integrity who genuinely loves the property market. I would recommend him as a partner in a development deal to anyone. He brings a great deal to the table." - S.A. Project: www.2555Union.com

- Sean is an absolute standout. As our agent, he really understood what we were after, and did not pressure us to any old deal, but made sure we got a fantastic outcome that was right for us. In the moving landscape of human emotion, financial and practical considerations that comprise real estate, Sean combines art, skill and understanding of human nature in such perfect measure - I sometimes thought he had a secret PHD in psychology, not just his formal training in architecture and property development! Sean also knows the areas he works in backwards, and is a skilled developer, so he is immensely knowledgable, and does not oversell, but works towards best outcome for all. - L.C.
