"I had the privilege of working with Lucien Nel on a commercial lease, in a building that was built by my father. As a new and inexperienced landlord located in Toronto with a property in Calgary, I felt vulnerable and overwhelmed. The weight of family expectations added to the pressure of making the right decisions. Lucien immediately understood my predicament and offered unwavering support.

What truly set Lucien apart was his ability to comprehend the human element of my situation. There were many obstacles and hurdles I had to deal with - prior to, and during negotiations. Lucien's calming presence and legal expertise were a lifeline. Prior to a crucial meeting with the tenant and their lawyers, Lucien called me and he instantly put my fears to rest.

Throughout the lease negotiation process, Lucien demonstrated exceptional professionalism, extensive legal knowledge, and an unwavering commitment to my well-being. His availability and dedication made all the difference in helping me navigate the complexities of the situation.

Thanks to Lucien, I not only secured a lease that protected my interests but also gained a sense of confidence and security in an otherwise trying time. Lucien is my trusted advisor and ally, who genuinely cares about his clients. He turned a daunting experience into a manageable one, and for that, I am forever grateful. I would not hesitate to work with Lucien again."
