“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.”
