We have utilized a Ross broker's expertise for a number of years as a consultant on the management of our real estate resources. The broker very successfully consulted with Van Gilder Insurance Corp to advise us and actively negotiate the renewal of 35,000 sq. ft. of space for our office lease. He also provided active involvement in the decision to relocate a business unit from our headquarters to another location occupying 7,500 sq. ft. He provides excellent support on a wide range of real estate issues both locally and within our 6 state operating region.
The broker brought a high level of knowledge, professionalism and superb quality service to all these transactions. His knowledge of the marketplace and his analysis of various options contributes to sound and cost effective business decisions. He managed our transactions in a timely way and is always responsive to the many questions and concerns as we move toward a conclusion. John exhibits a strong commitment to customer service. I have been impressed by his willingness to stay involved in the transaction far beyond what would be normally expected or required.
The broker is an individual of high integrity and who is a pleasure to work with. We could not have achieved the desired and expected results without his professional help. I would recommend him without reservation.
