He did not disappoint us. He understood our unique local markets and secured $60 million from a national insurance company. We have since engaged his firm several other times to arrange financing for us. There is no doubt in my mind that the professionalism and knowledge of PMZ will benefit anyone looking to finance or refinance hotels.
