Get Your Guide to Buying, Leasing or Selling

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.

Please be informed that Ian J. Bertolina of Bertolina Commercial Real Estate Services. Inc., was contracted to represent Braunco Inc., on the sale of om two (2) former manufacturing buildings and land, located in Mooresville North Carolina. We were very satisfied with the amount of real estate information and knowledge presented by Ian that allowed us to determine the proper value of the buildings and resulted in the successful completion of the sale. Mr. Bertolina followed all sales leads and presented all of the many inquiries resulting from his advertisements in local and national media which allowed contacts with multiple potential buyers. He also coordinated contacts and discussions with other real estate brokers to ensure that our building specifications were relayed to interested buyers and followed progress of the sale to the day of closing. We highly recommend Bertolina Commercial Real Estate Services for your real estate needs.

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.

Thanks to your professionalism in advice on how to market the property, keeping us informed of feedback through calls, e mails and visits helped us through the process.

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.

I have had the benefit of working with you on several lease projects in the Charlotte area. My experience was nothing but positive; you made the effort to both learn and understand our operational and financial needs and applied that knowledge in diligent search and negotiation efforts. Your initiative and follow through added significant value to the process and overall the experience and, the bottom line, the result exceed expectations.
