"I have known and worked with Colin Young for 15+ years, hiring him for a variety of land development and redevelopment projects from acquisition due diligence activities to project close-outs.
In my current work, advising Real Estate developer and investor clients, I trust Colin and CYA to provide the most timely, credible and informed opinions and offer practical solutions for any situation.
He is always accessible and able to succinctly explain his findings and recommendations for resolving items of concern with a realistic and pragmatic approach that I appreciate and my clients value.”

“C Young Associates has done excellent work on our Property Condition, Seismic and Phase I assessments. Their ability to sift through mountains of information and get down to what is actually important is remarkable. Occasionally, we encounter an issue that requires more thorough investigation and their knowledge and expertise is unparalleled. C Young Associates is an essential part of our risk management efforts and they have our unqualified endorsement.”

"My team has been working with Colin for 10+ years and we use him exclusively on any environmentally related items. Colin is thorough, detailed, and concise in his reporting and always responds to requests in a timely and professional manner. He treats our junior staff with the same level of respect as our senior staff. Colin gets the job done and has the ability to meet some challenging deadlines. You always know where things are at with Colin and I could not recommend anyone else for your Environmental Site Assessment needs."

“We’ve come to appreciate a very simple reality of working with C Young Associates. They’re not just a service provider, they are constantly focused on our business objectives. It is not unusual for CYA to reduce the scope of their work, and only provide what they advise we need to achieve that objective. They are unusually sensitive to our costs and consistently provide a high level of service. Moreover, they meet and constantly exceed our deadlines for work product. They are a welcome and refreshing member of the KB team.”
Adam Pevney, Director-Land Acquisition & Entitlements - KB Home Coastal Inc.
“While an environmental attorney at Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch LLP I had the opportunity to work with Colin Young on many occasions from about 2001 until 2017. Some of the projects on which we collaborated (Colin as environmental consultant, me as environmental counsel) were large investigation and remediation projects involving hundreds of thousands of dollars; others were smaller projects of five figures or less. The projects ranged from major soil cleanups to large and small mold issues to Phase I's and Phase II's. Irrespective of the size of the project, Colin's work was always professional, and his work product was always top quality. He never lost sight of the fact that he had to deliver a product that was within the budget guidelines established by the client. In my 16 years of working with Colin, I never had a single client voice any dissatisfaction with his work or the cost of his work, and many clients insisted that he do all their work after they worked with him on an initial project. The best thing about working with Colin is that there never were any unpleasant surprises.”
