CO-FOUNDER, REALTOURHUB

Ridiculously efficient’ is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Damilare. It’s rare that you come across standout talents like him. I have had the pleasure of working with him for years now, collaborating on several projects including multiple architectural designs of CoWorking spaces, as well as the design and implementation of my company website. I was always in awe of Damilare’s ability to command a room and get people on board with ideas—even people who were initially on completely different pages. Also, his ability to juggle multiple projects was unlike any I’ve seen before, and made a dramatic difference in the pace of quality and delivery on our projects. And no matter the personality, Damilare made sure everyone he works for/with leave with a smile.
