Our Space

With a palpable 40’s private eye aesthetic, our offices are located in the heart of downtown Holland, Michigan in the historic Botor Building on West 8th Street. At such a central location, it’s not uncommon to find us out walking for coffee or visiting the weekly farmer’s market, but several of our clients are within walking distance as well. We keep an open door policy to friends, family and clients who would like to visit – please feel welcome to drop in if you’re ever interested in seeing the space.
