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.

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.

Ian Bertolina and the folks at Bertolina Commercial Real Estate Services, Inc. have been working with our company for many years. Ian’s in-depth knowledge of the Charlotte market has been an essential tool for us in all aspects of our commercial real estate needs.
Ben KinneyBusiness North Carolina
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.
Frank G. BatesPresidentGutermann of America, Inc.
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.

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.

Just a quick letter to thank you for your work in finding the perfect home for our business. We had many qualifications for our perfect home, and you were able to search the market and find the right building, at the right price, and of course provide helpful advice to assist with the decision to purchase the building. As a first time commercial building owner, I know I was a demanding customer with the number of questions I asked throughout the process. Your professionalism, ability to educate, and your guidance were critical in helping us close the deal. Goodmortgage.com is now the proud occupant of 44,000 sq ft and we are excited about our next stage of growth- thanks to your help. Please call me if I can be of further assistance or provide a personal recommendation at 704-523-3886 ext. 201.

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 have had the benefit of working with you on several lease projects in the Charlotte area. My experience was nothing but positive; you made the effort to both learn and understand our operational and financial needs and applied that knowledge in diligent search and negotiation efforts. Your initiative and follow through added significant value to the process and overall the experience and, the bottom line, the result exceed expectations.
Stephen DiffenderferDirector-Real EstateDal-Tile Corporation
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.
