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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

From listing to close Ian was responsive and friendly. My partner and I have  over 50 years combined residential, real estate experience yet wanted a professional, commercial broker to meet our high expectations. We hired Ian. He helped us attain our final goal, and assisted in the negotiation and sale process professionally. We would hire him again.

Ian Bertolina of Bertolina Commercial Real Estate Services has served as our tenant representative in our firm’s two most recent office searches. Ian’s insight and knowledge of the marketplace has been very helpful in narrowing the search process and minimizing the time required by us. His input and advice in negotiating various provisions of the lease documents have also been very valuable.

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.
