“I have had the opportunity to work with Lori and Tom Sweeney on two different occasions. They are an outstanding realty team.  They quickly develop a clear understanding of the client’s needs, work relentlessly to find a building that meets those needs and then negotiate to obtain the best deal once the property is found.  They know the market and they know what is available. The results are significantly reduced burden and pain for management, and locating the right premises in a minimum amount
of time.”

I highly recommend Lori and Tom as the best agents I have ever worked with."

-Katherine Noeson

"In addition to having key contacts and being very knowledgeable of the local market, Tom Sweeney has proven to us to be an extremely competent and helpful problem solver.  After we suffered for years under an onerous lease, Tom was able to negotiate another tenant into our space, and he secured a much better lease in a building that was more appropriate for our situation.  This was the most impressive added value that I have seen from a Realtor, and I would whole-heartedly recommend Tom Sweeney for your commercial real estate needs."
