Please accept this letter of reference as a testament to the work you have performed for us as our trusted commercial real estate broker over the past two decades. From the time we first met in the Fall of 2000, you have provided us with sound counsel and valuable advice related to the location of our business. At that time, you helped us find ISS's first office space. Although it was a modest location (well situated in a home converted for business activities), it perfectly suited our needs at the time.
As our business grew, you helped us locate the building where we have been ever since: 1776 on the Green right in the heart of the Morristown Business District. This location has served us well since 2003 and you have helped shape and guide our growth ever since.
Our various locations have served not only as our physical address, but also as our business's emotional and strategic center-the space where we nurture our staff, develop our business model, and fulfill the needs of our valued clients. Each time a lease nears its end, we count on you to give us sound advice relating to our potential needs and to negotiate our future.
Steve and I thank you for your many years of dedicated service and for being a longstanding friend to ISS.
