Our Due Diligence Credo...


  • Never assume anything.

  • Double-check, then check again.

  • Just because the agency says something, doesn’t mean it’s accurate.

  • There are as many exceptions as there are rules.

  • Every project is different.

  • Innovate and negotiate.

  • Consider the politics of the project
