“Michael was referred to me. That was an immediate plus. I was interested in investing in space to start a new food service business (take away, dine in, and catering) in an up and coming neighbourhood. Didn’t know where, didn’t know whether I wanted to buy or rent, didn’t know what I didn’t know!
Michael took me through various neighbourhoods to get a better sense of what made sense and more importantly what to discard. During our wanderings we came across a great light filled space that had been used as an art gallery. When we got to see it and the space behind it the “do I buy the whole thing or do I just lease the commercial side” options loomed large. Michael, with his resourcefulness offered connections to people who could assess, analyze the options – in short, were trusted experts and could help.
Today we are on the short strokes of a lease for the commercial space. The design/construction team recommended by Michael are performing above standard. The lease deal is excellent. In short Michael provided expertise, process, advice and peace of mind. I am delighted to refer him to others in my situation.”

“I have had two previous very positive experiences working with Michael Davidson in the past. At those times he worked very diligently, and succeeded in finding good tenants for my commercial spaces which others had not been able to do.
When it was time to sell my family property, I felt that Michael would be the one to help me handle this difficult task. I was not disappointed. Throughout the interaction, Michael provided valuable insights and advice, always listening to my thoughts and ideas, sensitive to the sentimentality of this sale to me, never causing me to feel pushed into a situation which made me feel uncomfortable. He worked hard to establish the appropriate market value which would create the optimal situation to attract the interested buyers, while still getting the best price for me. He always remained positive, optimistic and supportive. I was impressed with his continued professionalism in dealing with difficult situations. It is without hesitation that I would use his services again whenever necessary, and would recommend him to anyone looking for excellent representation.”
All the best, Michael,
“Dear Michael Davidson,
I am writing to thank you for your assistance in facilitating the growth of Appletree Learning! Because of you, the experience of moving my teaching and consulting business from my home to an office space was efficient, fast moving and really enjoyable. Not only did you negotiate the lease for me in a very professional and formidable way but you also facilitated a complete renovation of the space. The result is a beautiful little school for Appletree and rent that is very manageable!
In a very short time I hired four teachers to assist me and my client base grew tremendously. Although I experienced periods of stress as things moved so quickly, I could always count on you to maintain a calm, balanced and professional manner and for that I am extremely grateful! You are a truly gifted professional with real life skills!
Michael, I thank you again for all your hard work. It has been a great experience working with you in making this significant move. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with you will be equally as impressed I am sure.”
Now that we are settled into our new offices, I just wanted to thank you for your assistance in helping us find a new location.
