“James Parnes was able to close a lease transaction where no one previously was able to do so. James personally inserted himself to help the Tenant in meeting the Landlord’s insurance requirements where the Tenant was having difficulty doing so. This deal only closed because of James’ efforts.”
Michael Zapson, Esq.

“I can’t thank James enough for his devoted commitment over this last year in the process of selling my office building. Living in NYC and myself not being available for many of the weekly chores in keeping an unoccupied building up and running, in which he enthusiastically volunteered to take charge of, is so GREATLY appreciated. I truly don’t have the words to express how grateful I am. James’ professionalism and devotion was incredible. He managed the selling process of this office building of mine, as if it was his personal property. THANK YOU!”
