I have invested with CJ Follini and NOYACK for almost 15 years in multiple projects. The NOYACK team has proven to be knowledgeable and professional in all my dealings with them. The firm's disciplined approach, keen eye for value, attention to detail and superior execution places them at the top of my list and in fact, assisted me with paying for my children’s college fund. I have full confidence in their honesty and integrity, and I look forward to partnering with them again.
This is the 14th year my father and I have invested with NOYACK Capital and we are extremely pleased with our returns and how they have exceeded estimates considerably. CJ Follini is always conservative and makes it his mission to beat return estimates by a wide margin. Their network is unparalleled and that’s how we get off market deals at attractive prices. Thank you
