"John has been instrumental in securing entitlements and permits for many of my  real estate development projects in the Santa Cruz area over the last 30 + years.  He has provided excellent  project coordination/management  and facilitated the development review process in an efficient and successful manner.  He has a thorough  understanding of the laws and policies governing development, the practices and procedures of local government agencies  and has excellent relationships with government staff members." 

"I have had the pleasure of working with John Swift for over 20 years.  We have worked together on many projects and I find him to be extremely competent, friendly, communicative and very well versed.  There is no doubt that his knowledge and understanding of land use & development are a great asset to any project and I highly recommend his services."
