Having a customer-centric approach with transparent costs is critical for emerging tech companies – the world in which Innovation Works and our portfolio companies operate. It is refreshing and right on point to see this high level of transparency being carried into a commercial real estate model and is something we found important when working with Kim Ford on our own move to new space. In Pittsburgh, where the real estate market is booming – especially among growing technology companies – the approach from Found Advisors will be a welcome shift.Rich Lunak, President and CEO, Innovation Works
It was a pleasure working with Kim Ford over the spring of 2015 for a second time since 2008. With their wealth of knowledge in the industry we were able to renegotiate our lease with upgrades to our work space we had not considered. They started and finished our renewal process well ahead of our lease expiration, giving us ample time to consider other lease options, if necessary. I would definitely recommend contacting Kim and her team when you are looking to lease commercial space.Veronica B Toran, Vice President of Finance and Administration, Sci-Tek Consultants, Inc.
Kim did an outstanding job for as a tenant's agent for negotiating the most recent lease for our law firm. Her advice was excellent. We wound up where we wanted, with the least possible disruption and at a rate we can live with.David Rosenberg, Partner Weber Gallagher; President at The Foundation of the International Association of Defense Counsel
We’ve had the good fortune to work with Kim twice – once to find a new space, and once to negotiate a lease renewal. In both instances it was clear that the team ‘got us’ from the very start, and had our organization’s best interests in mind until the deals were closed. As a nonprofit that focuses on women’s equality, it is also important for us to work with women-led companies, like Kim's office.Because of our wonderful experience, we gladly recommend Kim to our colleagues and partners.Tara Simmons, Vice President, Women and Girls Foundation of Southwest Pennsylvania
