We appreciate your involvement throughout the process. Your organization of the alternative site selection process, requirements and contracting terms saved us time and strengthened our negotiating posture. Once we had determined the three finalists, your taking the lead in the negotiation, I am convinced, helped us substantially reduce our rental expense. Our cost per square foot and the lease you negotiated will not approach the cost per square foot that we were paying under the old lease until the third year. I know there were some market pressures coming to bear; however, I cannot help but be convinced that your knowledge and negotiating expertise very much helped in this process.”

Business North Carolina
In the early 80’s the state was buying right of way for the Independence Expressway, I needed a real-estate agent that I trusted to help locate a suitable property for my business. I interviewed several and was impressed with Ian’s professional manor and helpful attitude. He soon located a number of properties and we settled on the Thrift Road location. The building size was good but it needed to be uplifted for retail. Ian helped with getting an architect and building contractor to customize the building for our needs. In 2014 at age 74 I decided it was time to retire. I again called on my friend Ian to list my property for sale. He once again guided me through the process. He researched the best asking price for the property and soon was showing the property always advising me in advance due to the fact that I wanted to continue with my retail business as long as possible. Early last year we had two good offers within the same week. We decided on the best highest offer. Ian then worked with the buyer and his agent and negotiated a lease back for three months that allowed me to have a going out of business sale and move the remaining inventory into a warehouse. I would be happy to speak to anyone considering using Ian as an agent. I’m sure that you will be happy with his service and will consider him not only as an agent but a trusted friend.
We enjoyed working with you, and we appreciate your diligence during the stop & go’s we had.

I am very pleased to write this letter of recommendation for lan Bertolina. lan represented our Charlotte, North Carolina property as broker. He worked very hard to sell our property. As we had few contacts in Charlotte he provided us with reputable, reliable sources in Charlotte to assist us with maintenance, environmental and legal issues. His efforts resulted in a satisfactory conclusion as we were able to sell our property for a good price. We highly recommend lan Bertolina…you won’t be sorry.
