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.
I had the pleasure of working with lan Bertolina during our search for a suitable property when relocating our Charlotte, North Carolina Showroom ian’s help was invaluable in this process. Our requirements were very specific and Ian showed a remarkable talent for listening and addressing our needs. His communication skills proved to be a tremendous asset during our search and subsequent negotiations. lan was consistently responsive to our problems. Phone calls were returned quickly and !an’s answers were always complete and accurate. The level of professionalism lan possesses made finding the right property a much easier task. It was a great relief to have someone we could trust working on our behalf. lan would be an asset to any organization and I am happy to give him my wholehearted endorsement.

Thank you again for your efforts with selling our Charlotte facility. I appreciated your patience and guidance as we resolved the many difficult issues the building presented us during the sales process. Now the contracts are closed and I would not hesitate to recommend your service to any future commercial property sellers.
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.

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.
Thanks to your professionalism in advice on how to market the property, keeping us informed of feed back through calls, emails and visits helped us through the process. In the end, we realized our best move was hiring you for this sale. Your thoughtfulness and consideration helped us keep our sanity. Gene joins me in our thanks.
Ian Bertolina helped us locate and negotiate a new Corporate office location within the Charlotte area. His knowledge of the market, professionalism and efficiency were exceptional. I highly recommend you consider using his services for your real estate needs. He provided us excellent advice and counsel throughout the process. Thanks Ian!!

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.

Prior to our meeting in mid-July, we had spent the past 8 months looking at properties in the same market area with another broker. All of the sites that we visited were either too small, too large or required significant modification. Our company was very frustrated and we were worried that our requirements might be too stringent. Everything changed on day one, once you began handling out account. You listened to our requirements and you promptly set up visits that matched our requirements. The whole process was complete and we were in our new office (after slight renovation) on October 3. The Fit was perfect with room for growth and the lease rate was well within our range.

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.
