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 just wanted to thank you for your excellent work related to selling our commercial warehouse and office in Charlotte North Carolina. You generated a great deal of interest i n our property and showed it often during the listing period. You were persistent and tenacious in your effmts as you marketed the property. Another thing I really appreciated was being constantly informed by you of any activity related to the property. You called whenever you showed the property and reported the results. I do not remember one time I called you to ask about the property because you kept me so well informed during the process. Overall we appreciate your hard work and effort i n assisting our family in selling this piece of property. I will highly recommend you to others and should the need arise call you first with any assistance we need

During the time that we worked together, I was very impressed with your command of the Charlotte commercial real estate market. You quickly knew where we would find the best value for our needs, and what to expect once we arrived. The professional rapport that you have developed over the years opened doors, enabling us to schedule efficiently and gaining us priority treatment. Your communication and follow-up was always excellent. Over the years, I have moved a business office three times and you by far have been the most professional and diligent commercial real estate agent that I have worked with. Your long relationship with ASCO, dating from 1995 when you found the Fort Mill location for us, has been advantageous for our company and I have been the most recent beneficiary of your expertise.

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.

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 take this opportunity to thank you for all you did to assist us in relocating our office in Charlotte. You were always available, and always very accommodating when it came to coordinating details for me. It was definitely not an easy task tracking me down as I traveled the country. I must say, you never gave up, and persevered through many adversities. It came together, and thanks to you, we have a very satisfied staff.

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.

I am very pleased to write this letter of recommendation for lan Bertolina. lan represented our Charlotte, North Carolina property as broker. He worked very hard to sell our property. As we had few contacts in Charlotte he provided us with reputable, reliable sources in Charlotte to assist us with maintenance, environmental and legal issues. His efforts resulted in a satisfactory conclusion as we were able to sell our property for a good price. We highly recommend lan Bertolina…you won’t be sorry.
