    We hadn’t seriously considered purchasing and converting this property until the KDS team provided their thoughtful insight and advice. From initial design to completion, KDS was with us every step of the way helping us to navigate through the complicated process while helping us recognize the opportunities and potential pitfalls of this deal. We are lucky to call KDS true business partners, and more importantly, friends.
