“We had the benefit of working with Michael Lemay, Owner of Wireless Investment Group, during the sale of a property that we owned. Michael and his company provided additional value to the wireless communication leases that we had on the property, allowing us to sell the property and the wireless leases separately and in doing so, we maximized the value of the sale. Michael was always available and worked with us during every step of the process, to make sure we understood what was going on. Based on this experience, I highly recommend Michael and Wireless Investment Group.”
– Rick and June Sabayrac
