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.

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.

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.

I would like to place on record your most helpful assistance from the beginning when we decided to look for a larger location. It was with your assistance that we finally decided to move to Arrowridge Boulevard and we much appreciated your positive help in arranging the Lease for us on favorable terms and then ensuring that the layout of the new premises was to the required design and standards.
