John dealt with all of the real estate aspects of the £387 re-financing of the Access Self-Storage portfolio. John showed complete commitment to the task from start to finish, was always available and very responsive, whilst remaining one step ahead. He is a pleasure to deal with and was an excellent fit with the in-house Access team.

Peter Thomas, Vice President of Acquisitions and Head of Legal, Access Self Storage


John has been a joy to work with from the point of helping us to navigate our initial office letting to advising on the subsequent relocation to our London office. John always makes himself especially responsive, communicating frequently with the associated agents, landlord’s lawyers and us. Incredibly conscientious and an absolute pleasure to work with, I would have no hesitation in recommending John and look forward to working with him again in the future.
