Get Your Guide to Buying, Leasing or Selling

I’ve known Ian for many years and was thrilled with the prospect of selling our multi-building campus through his firm. We listed the property on his website and with his many contacts in the industry, we had interest right away. The negotiation was handled in a quick and professional manner and exceeded my expectations. We had an acceptable offer within the first 30 days that was very close to our asking price and we were able to close the deal without any complications or stress on either the buyer or seller’s side. I would recommend Ian to handle your commercial real estate needs and will use him again if the opportunity arises.

Our requirements were very specific and Ian showed a remarkable talent for listening and addressing our needs.

My father and I appreciate all your hard work on the sale of our commercial property in Charlotte. We know what a tough sell you were up against as the building required at least $75,000 in repairs and updating. Meanwhile, to compound things, we had to overcome multiple break-ins that caused a further degree of difficulty to sell a damaged structure due to copper theft. We certainly hope to work with you in the near future! Thank you again for your good service and be well.

Just a quick letter to thank you for your work in finding the perfect home for our business. We had many qualifications for our perfect home, and you were able to search the market and find the right building, at the right price, and of course provide helpful advice to assist with the decision to purchase the building. As a first time commercial building owner, I know I was a demanding customer with the number of questions I asked throughout the process. Your professionalism, ability to educate, and your guidance were critical in helping us close the deal. Goodmortgage.com is now the proud occupant of 44,000 sq ft and we are excited about our next stage of growth- thanks to your help. Please call me if I can be of further assistance or provide a personal recommendation at 704-523-3886 ext. 201.

Just a note to thank you for bringing TechnoCom Business Systems, Inc. to Independence Pointe. The patience you showed with Jim is a real credit to your professionalism, and your credibility and market knowledge helped convince Jim that our Park meshed perfectly with his corporate objectives. It is always an added pleasure in business when the parties involved come away with a feeling of personal friendship, and that has certainly been the case for me. I have sincerely enjoyed working with you on this deal, and put high value on the friendship we have begun to develop. Let’s not forget that over the coming months! I’m also glad we were able to play golf after so many months of negotiating this deal. What a great way to end this portion of the transaction. Ian, if I can be of help to you in any way, please don’t hesitate to call I really hope we’ll have the opportunity to work together soon on another deal. Again, THANKS, for the confidence shown in us, and the way in which you orchestrated this deal, staying with us both from start to finish.

I wanted to take the time to thank you for the help you provided with the recent sale of 110 114 Knob Hill Road. From the beginning, your experience and expertise helped us every step of the way. With two buildings on the site I know this was not a typical sale. However, even though it was complicated your perseverance made the difference, and in the end the results exceeded my expectations. I also appreciated that you took the time, from the very start, to explain your process and strategy. That really put me at ease from day one. You kept me in the loop as you had potential buyers interested. Based on the results and your hands-on approach, I’ll have no problem referring you in the future for similar services. Thanks again for being a broker I can count on.

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.
