"Just wanted to express my gratitude to both yourself and your team. Scott was especially amazing during our relocation period. I wanted to let you know that he did not only help, but exceeded my expectations. He made the transition smooth by doing his best for us while still acting in the interest of Sound Transit....We still have one more unit under relocation, but we are not afraid any more, we are in good hands."

"Dave does not require hand holding because he has by far the most knowledge and understanding of the GSA procurement process, contract requirements and laws/regulations. He leads the meetings and when issues or questions come up he does not kick the can over to the LCO for response. He is really the best broker PM I have worked with."
- Supervisory Lease Contracting Officer, General Services Administration
"Thanks to the entire property team for being effective in working between the property owner and the technical team to keep them informed."
- Vice President, Tetra Tech Engineering
"The LaBonde personnel had the sense of urgency and professionalism to provide appropriate contacts with property owners and achieve timely progress in the acquisition of the rights needed. I have worked with quite a few real estate consultants over time and LaBonde easily adjusted to the needs of the County and provided all of the support we required and more.....I would urge you to strongly consider using this wonderful group of professionals. Hope you enjoy working with them as I do."
- Real Property Agent IV, King County WTD
