IREM Testimonial

5th September, 2014

“We used DJ Zimmie for a business award ceremony for IREM (The Institute of Real Estate Management). He worked with me for several months to incorporate music with every award and was SPOT ON while people were gaining their accolades. He was professional and a lot of fun making our event really stand out.   I heard nothing but praise following the event and I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again for an event that needs music to make it a great night!”
