Testimonial: “We were referred to Shore Research by another evaluation services provider, and were very glad that we connected. Karin and her team were very quick with their response to our request for a proposal, and what they proposed was very thorough and met our evaluation as well as budgetary needs.
Throughout the evaluation, Karin and her team worked closely with us to develop protocols and they were very good at communicating progress. We were very pleased with the final report they delivered to us: it was right on time and of very high quality. We will definitely look to Shore Research again in the future for our evaluation needs.” — Virginia Rangel
