    "Tay and her team put together a strong proposal with aggressive but realistic rents and won the listing to rent the 20 apartments we were gut renovating. Ten months later, as we continue to turn over newly renovated units to lease, we are enthusiastic about the job Tay and her team have done. Tay took control of the job and used the full resources of the marketing team and local office to assist with advertising and promotion while successfully leasing apartments as they came available."
