“...one of the nicest, most practical and thoughtful brokers tour lunches at your residence that I have ever experienced since 1998.  The lunch was delightfully prepared with a chef on site, perfectly proportioned and boxed for easy access and carrying... Brokers tour lunches are common, but what is not common is a thoughtful presentation and delivery with the concerns of the homeowner, agent and property firmly in mind.”

“1542 catered my recent event. It was fabulous! Not only did they present excellent themed food and cocktails, but also transformed the space to boot. The live band and dancers they arranged were the icing on the cake. I would not think of using anyone else.”
