Client Testimonials

"We were impressed by the ability of the [NKF] Detroit team to quickly pull together the most qualified professionals from various offices and service lines to accomplish our business objectives, which spanned asset acquisition, property repositioning, leasing and management. When we purchase an asset such as the Travelers Towers, we find it is important to work with a local team that knows the market well. Now, with this team in place, we are in a great position to move forward in leasing up the property. We'll also work closely with the management team to add improvements as necessary to ensure tenants have what they need for a productive office environment and to maintain Class A status."

"As an institutional client, we expect a great deal of asset on-boarding support. Not only do we need property management on the ground to transition the asset according to our specific policies and procedures, but we also want a sophisticated and reliable partner that will provide assistance with strategic solutions to inherited deferred preventative maintenance or capital improvement projects. NKF successfully met our expectations on a recent retail assignment and new acquisition in La Habra, California, and the firm continues to provide comprehensive services that meet our property management needs."

The Client

"I began working with the property management team at NKF three years ago, while the construction of our building (FBI Denver Division Office Building) was nearing completion. Both onsite engineers were proficient in every state-of-the-art and highly sophisticated building system. On its own initiative and supported by ownership 100%, the team made numerous programming changes to the mechanical systems for a more efficiently run building. They also took on more responsibility in-house, effectively reducing the costs for preventative maintenance contracts. Ultimately, the property manager and engineers have lowered operating expenses significantly over the last three years. Each employee brings a very high level of professionalism, knowledge and experience to the team and has been a delight to work with. I look forward to our continued collaborative relationship in the future."

"When we first brought our properties to the Newmark Knight Frank team, they [the properties] were, quite frankly, a mess. But [the team] turned 119 West 57th Street and 118 West 22nd Street into Class A office buildings. I cannot adequately express my gratitude and admiration for them. NKF is lucky to have such gifted and experienced people on its team."
