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’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.

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.

You were always easily accessible to us during our hunt for the perfect place and did a great job of listening to our needs and showing us properties that filled those requirements. As someone who had never coordinated a move before, I can tell you it was so nice to have you there to guide me through something that was very foreign to me. I felt like you sincerely had our best interest in mind throughout the whole process and that you negotiated a very fair deal for us. I would definitely recommend you to any business looking to relocate.

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.

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.
