What recent key move did you lead?

Contracting with large and well-known developers with proven financial strength.

What are the firm’s strongest attributes?

What should one remember during hardships?

That the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, i.e., even when you are accompanying a project that seems very challenging, both from the residents side and from the entrepreneur side, all of the variables must be taken into account and an attempt to join forces must be made in order to fully reap the project’s potential for the benefit of all of the involved parties.
