“I had the privilege of working with Kristi Kandel on a development project where Kristi represented the private sector client, and I oversaw the public sector approval process. The project was a tremendous success thanks to the professionalism and competence displayed by Kristi. During my 30 years of developing in the public sector, I have had a chance to work with many project managers in multiple jurisdictions. Because of her can-do attitude, knowledge of the development process, and interpersonal skills, Kristi is one of the few people I would whole-heartedly recommend to navigate the commercial real estate process when dealing with a public sector entity. Kristi delivered the completed project on-time and exceeded my expectations.”

“The hiring of a consultant is only done as a “leap of faith”. The stress and anxiety that you anticipate when you have a person come in and challenge the culture of your company is immense. However, it was evident from the start that David and his team had the proven methods and demeanor to help us create and execute the necessary strategic and operational goals to take our company to the next level. Implementing the changes became a true team effort for every employee at our company as David was able to clearly outline the direction and intentions of each change. We would highly recommend this company if you are serious about making lasting changes to your organization”

Within days of David stepping into our office he was able to quickly understand our business and existing systems and utilize those tools to help effectively build, train, & motivate our team to implement the changes. We immediately realized a very positive impact to our sales, production, & accounting. departments. Our entire organization is looking forward to being a contributing component to the longterm success of our company thanks to the effective planning and new system implementation by David and his team.”
