Connie and I worked together on a company headquarter project. She brought her expertise to the table, helping us navigate the design and aesthetic elements and in the process, created a great work environment.

Colliers International Real Estate — Richard D. Minker, Senior Vice President
I have known and worked with Connie for several years on various office space projects and we are fellow Rotarians.

Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
This philosophy, along with her design ability and passion, spells success for her business venture, and I can highly recommend her both personally and professionally.
