“Our growth strategy focuses on providing the same top quality, hands-on service but modernizing those services to be more entrepreneurial and creative.  We know our team has the experience to advise the major corporate players and now the focus is on expanding our capabilities to be the go-to option for clients that want a more attentive and agile real estate advisor” said Dean Blackey, Managing Director of R.W. Holmes.  “We are extremely excited to have David on our team and expect to have more news soon about other new additions to R.W. Holmes as we continue our growth strategy.”
