  • When we asked Scott Morse and the Citadel Partners team to assist in our pursuit, they asked all the right questions and urged us to explore other availabilities in the market before zeroing in on our new facility. This calculated process, attention to detail, and thoughtful analysis is unmatched in our experience and made us feel confident in our decision. The new facility has immediately helped bring new energy to the office and truly represents the culture of our company. I highly recommend partnering with the Citadel team for anyone looking for quality representation focused on their business drivers.

  • Citadel Partner’s market knowledge, along with their understanding of our long-term objectives, helped us get a reduced lease rate and gain allowances to replace HVAC systems and make cosmetic changes. Citadel’s perseverance and excellent negotiation skills prevailed with an owner who had never reduced lease renewal rates.

  • The real value add of the Citadel Partners team was their ability to work with us throughout the entire process – from market research, to site selection, negotiation, design, construction and move-in. Their advice and guidance led to some early ‘catches’ that might have become big problems later on.

  • We interviewed several firms. Our selection of Citadel was based upon one of trust. They proved they could listen, and truly understand our needs. We knew that they would have our best interest in mind while independently capturing every possible opportunity for us to consider as a potential location. They were very attentive to our needs, and there for us at every twist and turn of the process. The result is a relocation to a site that better represents our culture and suits our needs for the future. The Citadel team is fun, flexible and easy to work with – a true partnership.

  • “We moved into our new space in March 2014, and we could not be happier. Our old office was very linear with offices situated off of a long hallway, limiting the feeling of a team environment. Our current space has brand new finish-out and is more circular, which has established a positive work energy while giving us much more room.”
