From John's Clients

“After a lengthy and exhaustive search led by a national firm end up being fruitless, we hired John Rochford at NAI Puget Sound Properties to help with the effort. Not only was his local knowledge of the market instrumental in helping us find a great building, but his professionalism and attentiveness blew me away. No doubt we will be using John and NAI Puget Sound Properties on our next building.”
