Ray is on the move!

We are excited to inform you that Ray is moving!  Our new office will be located at 455 Dovercourt Road just north of College Street. As we emerge from the pandemic, and like most of our clients, our spatial needs have changed and we were fortunate to find a space that suited our needs perfectly.

Our phone numbers and email addresses will remain the same. We will however be closed for business on the day of the move, July 28th, 2023 and will resume operations at our new location on July 31st, 2023. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to welcoming you to our new office.  If you have any questions regarding our move, please do not hesitate to contact us.
