"Peter Calafiura is an exceptional professional and I wish to recommend his work to others.

About eight months ago, Peter Calafiura came to our rescue. My company  faced a huge dilemma, one that had major operational and financial implications for the firm. Our office lease was expiring without the possibility of renewal; we desperately needed additional office space; and we wanted to remain in the same neighborhood.

Once we engaged Locus Corporation, Peter took the time to clearly and completely understand our needs, our limitations, and the aesthetic and spatial requirements of our firm. Peter gave us his personal and focused attention, and scoured the marketplace to find that one property that would meet all of our needs. He found it. We then negotiated a great deal with our new landlord and moved in on time.

Throughout this process, Peter demonstrated exceptional drive, initiative, great leadership, and outstanding professionalism. His service to Goodworks was superb."

"I have known Peter Calafiura since 1997 when my association negotiated a lease to become one of the first private industry tenants of The Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center building. I found Peter to be both fair and honest as he dealt with a very complicated federal government and private management bureaucracy. At the end of the lease term I used Peter as a tenant leasing consultant to assist me in renewing our lease. Peter presented several other lease options for our consideration with a very thorough analysis of the comparisons of the leasehold costs. I found Peter to be a hard working advocate of our association and easily understood our needs and constraints. His depth of knowledge of the market and real estate issues is supplemented by his architectural eye."

"I was looking for a small office space - Peter helped me every step of the way and paid excellent attention to all the details. He clearly knows his business extremely well, and it's also clear that he uses all of his expertise to help the tenant get what they need and want -- it's not just about the money.

Besides Peter being so pleasant, accommodating, serious, and professional, he has an excellent working knowledge of all the different aspects of finding the right space, closing the deal, and getting all the little things the tenant needs."
