"The Christmas Holidays were certainly eventful this year. One of my best clients submitted an offer that had to be negotiated, so I found myself simultaneously negotiating terms and cooking Christmas dinner! I really can't complain though; the people involved in this deal were so prepared and organized, it was a pleasure to work with them. This deal came together seamlessly and efficiently in four months, how many brokers can say they've done that in the middle of a holiday meal?" said Aaida Oakley, Broker.  Oakley has been a successful Commercial Real Estate Broker for over 30 years.

"Primecorp continues to prove it is one of the most dynamic and successful full-service independent commercial brokers in the Country, having completed transactions in excess of C$6 billion in over 55 Canadian cities since its inception.  We are proud of Aaida in completing this important transaction" said Sam Firestone, COO, Founding and Managing Partner at Primecorp Commercial Realty.­
