Kim was referred to me by a close friend and is handling the landlord side of his lease. I am a first-time new business owner and Kim did a great job educating me about the commercial market and what to expect and was also patient enough with me on my learning curve all while not losing crucial time to lease a property.

Our company needed assistance with either renewing our existing lease or looking for a new space in the Raleigh area. From the initial consultation to overseeing the build-out of our new office, Kim Mills and Phoenix Commercial Properties provided a level of service that is unmatched. Kim always listened to and fought for our needs, provided us with welcome and valuable insight and information, and was always available to us. She also provided great referrals and recommendations for other services that we needed. I trust Kim completely and cannot wait to work with her again.
