Sarah Hughes was a tremendous help with sourcing and securing our new office in Sydney. ON24 is head quartered in San Francisco and we relied on Sarah and team to manage the process of the lease and its requirements. Working with Colliers is one stop shopping which made the logistics of an international move smooth with Sarah being on the ground playing point. She offered great recommendations of vendors to work with that helped ON24 meet our tight turnaround schedule and allowed us to stay within budget. Sarah Hughes has incredible follow through and is a pleasure to work with.

Recently, my team and I at First Advantage worked with Sarah Hughes of Colliers to handle the property search and lease negotiations for our Sydney office. I would rate Sarah a 10/10 on the entire experience. Sarah at every stage was extremely prepared, organized and thorough. She helped us simplify and manage the complexities and was assiduous in the negotiations. As a result, we were able to secure a fantastic property at a very compelling rate and Sarah spared us from the many pitfalls and mines strewn through the process. I recommend Sarah very highly and would not hesitate to work with her again.
