what our clients are saying

"Our business requires speed and efficiency in terms of retail real estate. Our store development process is quite complex and this creates some challenges in terms of finding new sites, negotiating leases and ensuring stores are ready for opening in time. In that process Rebecca is a great partner as she understands the specifics of our business and works closely with us to achieve our goals. Rebecca Piggins works in a great partnership with me. She is always open to have a catch up and pick up immediately all agreed actions. The whole experience working with Rebecca has been fantastic."
