- “I have known John for 20 years and have found him to be honest and dependable. We use John for all our commercial real estate investment needs. He is a trusted partner and has provided a great deal of value to the foundation over the years. John is much more than a commercial real estate broker, he is a true consultant, advisor, and friend. He is trustworthy, accountable, and accepts responsibility for his actions. His market knowledge, ‘spot-on’ financial analyses, excellent follow-thru, and proven integrity make him a very important part of our team.”
Ron K. Bailey – President, Bailey Family Foundation (Former CEO, Strayer University)
- “It is a pleasure working with John. Over the past year, he has gone above and beyond for our company in managing a very complex disposition assignment. John’s leadership, market knowledge, integrity and follow through have been instrumental in our success and we are really thankful that he is a part of our team. I would recommend John to anyone that is looking for not just a broker, but a true team member and advisor that has what it takes to get the job done!”
Wilson Abreu – President, PDG Properties, Inc.
- “From minute one, I was impressed with John’s market knowledge and knew I would be in good hands. I have always handled all my commercial leases personally for years now, knowing that I would have to sacrifice personal and business time to crunch numbers and research properties. After all, who knows my company’s needs better than me? Scenically, I thought brokers might only show me properties that suited their interests, but it is clear that John had our best interests at heart.
John was very fast to respond to question (even the silly ones) and most importantly, answered his phone and followed up constantly. I am very impressed with your organization and look forward to conquering the next locations we will need.”
Monte Townsend – VP / General Manger, Flood Brothers, Inc.
