Testimonials

The Was Group has been an established leader in the outlet industry for many years. During this time we have had the pleasure of negotiating deals with virtually every retailer in the outlet industry on behalf of our clients. We pride ourselves as being known not only for achieving superior results for our clients---but also as being known as a firm with high integrity. Below are several testimonials for The Was Group, as provided by some of the premier retailers in the outlet industry as well as some of our valued clients.

The Was Group has been instrumental in transforming our average performing outlet center into a high-volume, premier tenanted project through their excellent contacts and deep knowledge of the outlet industry.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with The Was Group for many years and find them to be extremely smart and efficient. They are responsive to any requests that my clients have, regardless of the amount of work required. The Was Group turns around LOI's quickly on behalf of their clients and my clients always feel that they were treated fairly and with the utmost respect. It is very difficult for non-REIT developers and most small consulting firms to get leases signed in the outlet industry, but The Was Group has earned their reputation that they always get the job done.

I have always found working with The Was Group to be a great experience. Their immediate responses and follow up to questions and details is extraordinary. Honest, hard-working and detail-oriented is how I would describe this organization.

Brenda Wurtz, BW Retail Real Estate (Gymboree, Nike, etc).

I have worked with The Was Group for over three years. Everyone at their firm is a consummate professional and their depth of leasing knowledge is unmatched. They helped my company get through a very difficult period in retail in the last few years by maintaining ongoing retailer relations and sourcing new retailers for our center in a very competitive market. It is very difficult to find a group of professionals that all have the same vision of honesty and integrity in a business that can certainly test those values. They have long standing relationships with every quality outlet retailer which is crucial for a center to flourish. As a developer, I would highly recommend The Was Group for any existing or developmental project if your goal is to have a vibrant and successful outlet center.

I have worked with The Was Group on numerous deals over the years. They are a highly respected group in the outlet industry and they are both honest and knowledgeable. They are dedicated to working with the retailers and they have tremendous follow up. When it comes to leasing an independent outlet center, there is nobody better in our business.
