I have complete confidence in Steve’s ability to take on complex projects and drive them to a successful conclusion.” -James Cameron, Lightstorm Entertainment
  • “I can honestly say in my 40 years in this business, I have never seen a broker put forth the kind of effort you did in this transaction, and in such a way that all parties took advantage of your involvement.” I truly appreciate your team, and hopefully, this will be the first of many successful transactions that you handle for us.” -Shalom Wall, President

  • “I am immensely grateful to Steve Wiseman for his assistance in securing a tenant for our Los Angeles warehouse space. Despite listing our property in the midst of a recession, Steve aggressively pursued prospective tenants, provided regular guidance on our asking rate and shepherded all documents for our review. His professionalism and follow-through made this process far easier than I anticipated it being. I would strongly recommend Steve to anyone with similar needs and I will absolutely employ his services again.” -Dermott Sullivan, Neiman Marcus, Vice President – Operations

Clearly, Steve helped align the stars on this one.” -Hal Rodriguez, Managing Director, Greenhill & Co. Inc.
  • "It has been a pleasure to work with you in renewal the Lease of the building space for the Slovak Consulate in the Tower, 10940 Wilshire Blvd. I am sure; it would not be successful without your personal effort and the high quality of real estate brokerage services you have provided to us. I really appreciate that, thanks to your professional approach we can stay in our office for the next period. I am looking forward for the future cooperation.” -Milan Kovac, Vice-consul, Consulate General of the Slovak Republic
