“When Godiva made the decision to expand and remodel our current office, we knew that we needed to bring in the expertise to lead us through each phase of the project. GOLA Real Estate provided that expertise and much more. From negotiating rent savings and allowances, to representing Godiva on contract discussions, the GOLA team led by Rod Neary and Dave Butera delivered. But what really differentiates GOLA is the support and services they provide through the build-out. Sandra Benek, GOLA Project Manager, also played a key role in our project’s success. Sandra went above and beyond as she was on-site weekly and worked closely with the Godiva team to provide valuable insight and recommendations from the initial space planning sessions through the final construction phase of the project. The end result was a brand new office that exceeded our expectations and truly reflects the Godiva Brand. I highly recommend GOLA and thank their entire team for a job well done.”

“We have worked with Mark Gola of Gola Corporate Real Estate for more than 10 years. They have been a valued business partner when it comes to our company’s office space. Mark is particularly knowledgeable about the marketplace, and we have come to depend on him to keep us updated on new and vacant commercial real estate opportunities in the area. That has come increasingly important as our business and team continues to grow. Not only have we been impressed with his wealth of expertise, but applaud his genuine concern for his client’s needs and making sure any decisions are in sync with current business objectives. Mark has guided our lease negotiations with skilled diplomacy. His staff has additionally been outstanding leading space planning efforts and construction projects. We look forward to building on what has been a very successful relationship with Mark Gola and an outstanding team of real estate professionals.”

“ifm has been extremely fortunate to have Gola Corporate Real Estate work by our side to achieve two major milestones for our company – the establishment of our technology and manufacturing operation in 2012 in Malvern and most recently, the build-to-suit project for our new US headquarters in the Atwater Corporate Center. For both projects, they far exceeded our expectations serving as a dedicated partner who always had our best interests at heart. From the onset, they listened and obtained a clear understanding of our needs, business objectives and our strategic vision. We are truly proud to work with Mark and his team and look forward to working on more successful projects together.”

“I have been relying on Mark Gola and his team for corporate real estate needs for 13 years. During this time, Gola has taken the time to fully understand the unique space needs of an advertising agency. They have truly provided a turnkey solution on each project – market analysis, lease negotiation, space programming, design consultation, furniture and equipment assessment, and project management. Gola has represented DMW Direct on its last 3 transactions and will continue to be our “Partner” for all future corporate real estate projects.”

SDI Health
“SDI Health has been a client of Gola’s for the past eleven years. During that time Gola has aided SDI Health in acquiring increasingly larger space and in divesting a significant space as part of an SDI acquisition. During this process we felt Gola was an integral part of the SDI Team. Their dedication to achieving our real estate goals was performed in the best professional manner. Their goal was to achieve the best agreement in order to meet SDI’s needs. We intend to continue to use the Gola team for all our future real estate needs.”

Panacea Technologies Inc.
“I have been in the business world over (35) years and have encountered many business professionals. Dave Butera is the ‘cream of the crop’. His approach to customer service is incredible. Dave balances constant follow up without ever being intrusive. His breadth of knowledge of the real estate market was invaluable to our office search. As a bonus, Gola assigned a Project Manager, Sandra Benek. Sandra was a perfect complement to Dave. Her attention to detail and her level of experience as a Project Manager gave Panacea Technologies a level of comfort that made this entire process less stressful.”

Gen3 Marketing
“Gen3 Marketing has been extremely fortunate to have worked with Dave Butera (and Sandra Benek) of GOLA on two separate transactions, an expansion within our current space and a relocation to a much larger space. On both occasions, while the outcome was spectacular, the journey was even better. At the time of our expansion, while we were a very small company, Dave treated us like rock stars, representing our best interests with regard to lease term, the amount of incremental real estate to consume and market pricing. After outgrowing our expanded space after a few years and making the decision to relocate, there was no question about employing GOLA’s services again and once again, GOLA delivered big time. Throughout the evaluation and negotiation process, Dave spent countless hours dedicating a sense of partnership, advocacy and market expertise to ensure that Gen3 landed in the best possible spot at the best possible price. And once we landed, we leaned on Sandra to help make the place become a showpiece that we cannot wait to share with future staff, clients, family and friends. If and when Gen3 once again expands and/or relocates, you can guarantee that Dave Butera will once again be representing our organization.”

Center for Women's Health
“As the current President of the Center for Women’s Health in Langhorne, I can recommend their services without reservation. We have been personally acquainted with Gola since 2007 when we began an expansion and redesign of our office at 540 Woodbourne Road. Telling you that we have been impressed with their service and expertise would not do them justice, we were dazzled.”
