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.

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.

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.
