KDS helped from the outset, providing a dedicated search and working closely with my brokers to find existing space that we could upfit. Realizing my time limitations, the team worked tirelessly to facilitate every aspect of the transaction, both quickly and fairly. I will always be thankful for Mark and the KDS team. They have my highest recommendation.
