"Our team understands the full range of challenges involved throughout a project and we will provide the foresight to manage these challenges and execute our clients' projects in a cost-effective and timely manner. As project managers, Bethany and Deborah have executed a multitude of projects in several different sectors of the real estate industry and both bring years of experience and project expertise to the NGKF team."
