MKAssociates has been a vendor for Walmart for over fifteen years. They have distinguished themselves as a vendor who consistently provides quality services. Real estate closings are time sensitive and having a vendor who also has the same level of urgency is one of the keys to a successful real estate program.
My experience with MKA has found them to have uncompromising standards for themselves and for those companies they engage. MKA has maintained their reputation by providing comprehensive services, value, and excellent customer service.
We hired MKAssociates for survey work of approximately ten (10) properties located in six (6) states, and we were on a very tight schedule for a quick tum-around of the survey work. We received the surveys in a very timely manner and the surveys were in complete detail and very thorough. As we worked through survey issues and changes, MKAssociates was great to work with and handled our requested changes and updates in a timely and professional manner.
I highly recommend MKAssociates, and I certainly look forward to our continued working relationship with them.

MKAssociates brought a new level of consistency to the surveys for our lending platform. Because they screen the surveyors and competitively bid the pricing, we always receive a high quality product at a reasonable price. Additionally, MKA is always conscience of the time sensitive nature of our transactional business so that they continually meet our deadlines. As a competing lender, it is important to keep down transaction costs and move our transactions quickly to meet the needs of our borrowers, we could not have a better partner in our lending business than MKA to help us meet those needs.
The level of service, attention to detail, knowledge of surveys and real estate, and uncompromising standards sets MKAssociates apart as one of the best in the business.

Thanks again for all your help.

I have worked on transactions with Michelle for over 5 years, having first met her at a CREW convention. Michelle is extremely responsive and accommodating. When working on complex multi-site properties, I appreciate how her company is able to use our property designations rather than having to fit them into some other system. She is friendly and generous with her time and advice and professional at all times.
