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.
In the early 80’s the state was buying right of way for theIndependence Expressway, I needed areal-estate agent that I trusted to help locate asuitable property for my business. Iinterviewed several and was impressed with Ian’s professional manor and helpfulattitude. He soon located a number of properties and we settled on the Thrift Road location. The building size was good but it needed to beuplifted for retail. Ian helped with getting anarchitect and building contractor tocustomize the building for our needs. In 2014 at age 74 Idecided it was time to retire. I again called on my friend Ian to list my property for sale. Heonce again guided me through the process. Heresearched 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 tocontinue with my retail business as long aspossible. Early last year we had two good offers within the same week. Wedecided on the best highest offer. Ian then worked with the buyer and his agent andnegotiated a lease back for three months that allowed me tohave a going out of business sale and move the remaining inventory into a warehouse. I would be happy to speak to anyone consideringusing 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.
Thank you again for all you have done to make our move not only comfortable but possible. Even with a small company like ours, having a professional like you to guide us through the steps is absolutely essential. We greatly appreciate your conscientiousness and reminders of the many things that we had to do. Any time we can recommend to prospects your services, don’t hesitate to let us know as we will give you the highest recommendation.

Thank you also for your contribution to solving our building needs. From your first presentation to your last visit, your concern and professionalism helped us make sense of a complex, and sometimes discouraging, process. We’re delighted with the results. The new building is everything we hoped for when we started looking a year ago.
It was a pleasure working with you in the purchase of 400 E.Arrowhead Dr. I and Thafseera would like to thank you for patiently working with us in this project from start to finish all the while helping us understand the process and simplifying for us the complexities involved in procuring a commercial space. At the end we are glad we had you as the realtor and we thank God for the right place He put us in. Once again thank very much. I look forward to working with you in future projects.
During the time that we worked together, I was very impressed with your command of the Charlotte commercial real estate market. You quickly knew where we would find the best value for our needs, and what to expect once we arrived. The professional rapport that you have developed over the years opened doors, enabling us to schedule efficiently and gaining us priority treatment. Your communication and follow-up was always excellent. Over the years, I have moved a business office three times and you by far have been the most professional and diligent commercial real estate agent that I have worked with. Your long relationship with ASCO, dating from 1995 when you found the Fort Mill location for us, has been advantageous for our company and I have been the most recent beneficiary of your expertise.

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.
