Absolute professional, gent and a safe pair of hands

"We recently completed on a lease assignment for a new office we are opening. We used Bill Wass at Warners and he was an absolute professional, gent and a safe pair of hands. Delighted with the service we were provided by Bill. I would go as far as saying, without Bill it wouldn't have gone through. Highly recommend."
