Gallagher & Mohan is here to help our clients establish a real estate tailored offshore system so they can take advantage of the US-Indian labor price arbitrage without sacrificing quality.  We want our clients to create a system that empowers their onshore team to accomplish more work, more efficiently and focus on the highest value tasks such as sourcing opportunities, closing deals, raising capital and more. We want to be the natural alliance our clients need as they continue to grow.

9How does Gallagher & Mohan ensure client satisfaction?

Gallagher & Mohan is deeply committed to bringing top notch customer support.

Then we like set up a recurring call indefinitely to discuss strategy and how improvements can be implemented. Besides these times, your Account Executive are always there to answer any questions and queries you may have.
