Helping business owners in our community is something we enjoy doing at Neyens Law. We recently worked with Mark Young from Crossroads Properties. Crossroads Properties has been engaged in the business of developing, owning, leasing and managing commercial real estate. Their holdings include over 500,000 sq. ft. of office, office/showroom, office/warehouse and service space.
Crossroads Properties helped our firm find the perfect space. Mark and his associates took the time to understand our current and future needs, which resulted in the move to our current location.
Mark is all about family and one of the most important parts of having an estate plan in place was giving him the piece of mind that his family was taken care of.
