The purchase of our 12,000 square foot building required the support and approval of the entire Arizona Dental Association Board. After researching many options, Andrea prepared an impressive package and the Board toured six select buildings. Upon completion of the tour, the Board unanimously approved the targeted building and we have been delighted ever since.

The teamwork and professionalism from her firm made my job easy when it came to relocating our corporate office. Thank you, Andrea.
