I’ll bet by now you’ve left word with your secretary and answering service that if Steve Richie calls, you’re in a meeting, or indefinite mental health leave, right? Or maybe you’re changing your name and moving to another city far, far away from the Charlotte Rifle & Pistol Club? Thank you so much for all your help with this transaction. I know you went way beyond the call of duty to help us sort things out and get it all arranged. I am personally very grateful. When we get the new range built, we’re going to have a party. We’ll want you there. I’ll call.

I wanted to thank you again for the very successful and expeditious sale of my client’s commercial property in Charlotte. I had received a referral to you from another broker, and your performance has borne out their recommendation. Throughout the process you were readily available, were helpful and forthright with your marketing and pricing advice, and always stayed in communication with me as to the progress of advertising, inquiries and showings. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in need of commercial brokerage services in your area. Please feel free to share this letter with others to whom you feel it might be useful.

Frankly, this is the most pleasant brokerage experience of my career.You made a lengthy and cumbersome process easy for me, which iswhat most brokers fail to accomplish. You were never late, neverfailed to keep commitments and never permitted the poor interpersonal skills of others to cause you to respond in kind. In Short, yourservices carry my highest personal and professional recommendation.

I want to thank you for helping us through a process that hasresulted in out moving into a larger, nicer and much more functional office. Your organization of the alternative site selection process,requirements and contracting terms saved us time and strengthenedour negotiation posture. Once we had determined the three finalists,you’re taking the lead in the negotiation, I am convinced, helped ussubstantially reduce our rental expense.

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.
