What Our Clients Say
Nothing says more about Guidance’s integrity, follow-through, and results, than the words of our clients.
The Solomon Foundation
When it came to negotiations Norm and Wendy were relentless on our behalf to get the best deal possible. They were professional, courteous, and detailed with the landlords to strive for the best possible outcome for The Solomon Foundation.
Considering all of the curve balls we threw your way, you never wavered, complained or rolled your eyes at us. And in the end your process got us where we needed to be - we saved money and received the needed tenant improvements to make our space function optimally.
K2 Audio, LLC
K2 Audio was a start-up company with big plans for growth. The company, founded by an experienced and successful high-tech entrepreneur, planned to grow rapidly through anticipated new business and the planned addition of new employees. This internal growth would require adding approximately 33% to the initial office space needs.
Adams County, Colorado
... I feel strongly that the services provided to Adams County were far from ordinary. In fact, the quality of services provided to Adams County...during the last three years has been consistently of the highest quality.
I am extremely grateful for your efforts and primarily credit the successful completion of this entire process to your knowledge of the corporate real estate business and your steadfast determination to provide the best possible solution to our unique situation.
East Resources, Inc.
Front Range Community College
In your many roles representing the building’s buyer and as the project construction manager, you also took very good care of our needs as a tenant – hearing our concerns and finding the most workable, cost-effective solutions.
Your follow-up and thoroughness were really outstanding! We felt like you were acting as our internal real estate department. You were our advocate and whenever you said you would do something, you delivered.
ADT Security Services
This project entailed redevelopment of a 129,000 square foot retail center into a regional headquarters and call center for Alert Centre, a national security firm. Fortune 500 Company, ADT Security Services unexpectedly acquired the firm, and decided to move a portion of its home office operations to Denver and expand the monitoring/call center there.
Kerr McGee Corporation
The broker is an extension of my reputation; other brokers were unresponsive or patronizing. I had instant access to Norm, the principal of the company, who was a great mentor and provided the education I needed to be effective in negotiations. He listened and understood my need to provide positive results to management.
... your thorough understanding of contract language and your patience to sort through all of the fine details and help me understand them was both inspiring and essential to insure our company was making the right decision.
Neva Ridge Technologies
Brighton Urban Renewal Authority
The Brighton Learning and Resource Campus brought together the resources and commitment of government, educational and non-profit agencies, the City of Brighton and Community Reach Center Foundation partnered to turn a vacant hospital into an award-winning lifelong learning and health center.
Thank you for the skill and diligence you demonstrated in your variety of roles, not only on behalf of your client, but for the interests of all of us involved. I truly valued your professional brokerage and construction management contributions to this project...
...the level of service and the attention to us as a client is what makes them so special...very responsive to exactly what we needed. (They) can deal with a lot of people on any level. That is one of their strongest assets.

I appreciated that you were able to develop a number of suitable options on fairly short notice, especially after we encountered problems with the tenant trying to sublease their space in Gunbarrel. When these negotiations stalled, you were quickly able to develop a number of alternative options (and) you negotiated a lease with very favorable rates and terms.
Thank you for your professionalism and patience...finding an appropriate site which best represented our company's image and location needs was a lengthy challenge for all of us, and for which I feel we could have not accomplished without your market knowledge and contacts.
Norm has an absolutely magnificent attitude...by far, the best business management and business process that I have seen in the industry. He provided in-depth comparisons for every deal, every statistic to look at to see the real costs.
...shows what tenacity can get you. Thanks for all your help!
TRW Systems & Information
Your expertise was invaluable to the successful completion of lease negotiations and the subsequent remodeling operation. In addition to your quick responses to our endless questions, I appreciated your willingness to assist us in matters that were often beyond the general scope of your services.
Your strategies were effective, your advice was sound and your expertise lent credibility to our project. Your reputation and professional approach gave us access to top-notch architects (and) general contractors.
The Paradigm Health Club
We were initially engaged by the principals of The Paradigm Health Club to help them locate and lease a facility for their planned athletic club to be located in Louisville, Colorado. The facility requirements were challenging: a special-use building with large amounts of parking, high ceilings, heavy HVAC and specialized interior build-out, and the potential club location was critical because visibility and accessibility were key issues
Prima Energy Corporation
In less than two months they located our space, aided in negotiating the lease and made sure that the necessary build-out was completed in time to accommodate our move-in date.
We met with Prima Energy for the first time on September 1st. They had a 90-day deadline to expand or relocate, and we helped them relocate to their new offices by December 1st.
...Norm DeHart (has) provided impeccable service in the real estate arena for both Pearl Izumi and Rodeer Systems...very responsive to our needs, and very familiar with the different markets in the various cities...consistent, cooperative, and extremely motivated in helping us achieve the real estate goals of the organization.
Pearl Izumi / Rodeer Systems
Gateway Funding Diversified Mortgage Services
Norm educated me on the first call. He did a good job describing the different kinds of brokers. I did not know about tenant reps.
You present with integrity. I trust you not to get me into a bad situation with a difficult landlord.
Terralliance Technologies Inc.
Stride & Associates, Inc.
As a newcomer to the area, Stride benefited greatly from (their) knowledge of the local business landscape, understanding of the current business climate and facility at identifying appropriate properties to consider. The last of these points came from their ability to listen. They took the time to understand my views on what would be important to Stride in not just selecting a site, but in succeeding in a given location.
