"I came to know Gijs at the peak of the crisis as an open-minded and effective developer of vacant office property"
"My contacts with Gijs are excellent. I have had several contract meetings with Gijs in which I have found Gijs to be a reliable partner."
"Gijs Albada Jelgersma played a huge role in the redevelopment of our new head office. Based on the responses from users, this redevelopment has been more than successful."
"The contact with Gijs has been good, he is professional and reliable."
"Gijs has played a crucial role in the refurbishment of our offices in Amsterdam, formerly owned by TRIUVA. The buildings we occupy no longer fitted our needs and we were considering a relocation. However, Gijs was able to convince the owner to invest substantially in the buildings and in return he convinced us to renew the lease. Gijs managed the negotiations in a professional way and showed business integrity. He was transparent in what was achievable, so that both parties felt there was a win-win deal on the table."
"Gijs and I share the same roots in our professions, being senior asset manager for a long time for German institutional investors. We worked close together on integrated area developments in Amsterdam in locations where we both faced severe vacancies in our buildings. He is trustworthy, persistent and very pragmatic, a good business partner."
"I have known Gijs for many years while doing advisory work on Airport Cities for the IVG Group in Frankfurt and as a member of the “Beirat” of the IVG Group. He is guaranteed to be highly committed, people oriented, easy-going, and a team player. He is dedicated in whatever he is doing. I have watched him take a deep interest in the lives of many of the people around him. Much thought goes into the things he does, and he has an unusual ability to notice what others overlook."
