Brian was referred to us by Jack Lester. A very long term trusted friend that helped us for so many years with commercial space. We couldn’t be more happier with this referral as Brian has stepped in and exceeded expectations. Very quick to respond, great communication, and always finding the best solution for his clients. He will be the first line of defense for you in any situation. Its been great working with Brian and we look forward to the cont. partnership many years to come.
Brian helped us navigate a fast, efficient transition to a better commercial space which encouraged us to continue growth. He was always timely, prepared, and knowledgeable regarding the Cedar Rapids / Iowa City commercial real estate market, and made the process as easy as possible. We enjoyed working with Brian and appreciate his ongoing follow-up and support.
I am fortunate and thankful to have gotten to work with Brian. Within the first week Brian toured Finish Tower’s facility. He listened and quickly learned what we were looking for. His communication was on point throughout the process. He was thorough in explaining each milestone. Brian added strategic value with price negotiating and also understanding the timeline of each situation throughout the negotiating process. Communication is where most people fail. Brian does not fail at communicating. Honestly, I don’t know if I have ever worked with a better communicator. We ran into some speed bumps caused by outside agencies towards the end of the transaction, but Brian quickly produced revised documentation that reflected the changes for each scenario. He also called me each time to explain the situation. I never felt rushed or pressured throughout the entire buying process. Brian is a class act and a person I highly recommend for your commercial realty needs.
Brian has done an outstanding job serving as my agent. He is highly effective and responsive. He has helped me with both the purchase of a commercial property and listing of a commercial property for rent. He is an invaluable resource for me. In my commercial acquisition, he provided the most important service of being attuned to the local market to alert me to a new property at the earliest opportunity. I highly recommend him.
Brian has always been there when we needed Broker Opinions, help selling closed locations, negotiations of subleases, site searches and always showed professionalism when working with our people in the field. Its great having someone in the market with his abilities and backing that you can count on.
I've worked with Brian on multiple transactions over the past few years and he has repeatedly shown to be very knowledgeable, detail oriented, prompt, easily reachable, very professional and just a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend his services and look forward to working with him on future projects.
Brian was very helpful finding new tenants for our commercial suites. He aggressively promoted our vacant spaces and helped us negotiate the final leases. Brian is happy to share insights from his extensive experience in the commercial real estate sector, and he is very prompt and conscientious in his professional communications. We were pleased with Brian's services and have no reservations recommending him to others.
Brian was a great guy to work with. He is a straight shooter--honest and forthright. He truly cares about his clients' success and works hard to achieve his clients' goals! I highly recommend Brian for your commercial realty needs!
From concept to closing Brian provided insight, guidance, cautions and overview of the opportunities and options we had in finding the right commercial property. He provided and exceptional and easy to understand market pricing evaluation to develop a strategy for reasonable purchase price and negotiation. He created clear and helpful time lines to accomplish closing milestones and made the first time commercial purchase easy to enjoy. Most importantly he was responsive, professional and friendly at every step of our purchase. Brian gets our highest recommendation.
Brian is a pleasure to work with, completely knowledgeable about the commercial market in eastern Iowa, and will go many extra miles to assist his clients. Highly ethical. My go-to commercial realtor-I really value his opinion!
I have been working with and relaying on Brian for several years in the commercial real estate sector. Four years ago I shared with Brian some pretty big long term goals of a fairly large commercial space. Brian asked countless questions specific to how the space would be utilized (other tenants), specific questions as I saw cash flow of the space and helped point out bigger picture details that I couldn't foresee. He helped make key introductions for the project and came to every meeting. He helped fact find as much information as if it was his own investment. Ultimately after countless hours of investigating, meetings, planning, and fact finding, Brian had helped me find enough information and the tough realization that the project was not financially responsible in that moment and I had to delay that project. I was devastated but ultimately, Brian helped me gather key information that showed me it was not a good risk for me at that time. I sometimes have an overly confident conviction that I will find away to make something work. Brian used great candor in helping me see the risks and assessments of this initial project.... more like a supportive caution break. Hindsight, I am thankful for his tact, his time, and his patience. I circled back to Brian a few years later for a very different, and very small project compared to my initial commercial real estate goals years prior. Brian gave me the same type of care and thoughtful execution on details of the project to make it a success. I appreciated his knowledge, industry insight, attention to detail, fact finding ability, execution on follow thru, deadlines, and keeping the project on a timeline and created excellent communication and pulse checking on the project. I appreciated how he gave me the exact same attention for a very large project and equal attention and assistance for a much smaller project in the end. I appreciate what I continue to learn along the way. I appreciate how Brian has helped make key introductions for my business as it pertains to growth, expansion, and long term planning. I appreciate how much he truly connects with my goals for my projects. Brian doesn't view these transactions as just a "transaction." It is a solid relationship and I truly felt I had a business partner in his guidance. He wanted to be sure to set me up for success and I am forever thankful. I will continue to use Brian in all of my real estate endeavors.
Our company had to find a solution to solve an immediate space need, facilitate future growth and not break the bank. Brian took the time to understand our situation. He knows the market, found creative options, and offered solid advice. Brian’s professionalism and skills are self evident. Even after taking all of that into account, more than anything else, we felt that Brian was truly in our corner working for us. I would highly recommend him.
Brian has been instrumental in the expansion of my commercial portfolio. We have done multiple deals together and he is the definition of a true professional. His attention to detail is second to none, and is always available even after the sale. When it comes to life changing transactions, there is nobody I trust more than Brian.
Brian has surpassed all my expectations as an experienced realtor giving excellent attention to all the details associated with a real estate purchase, & utilizing excellent negotiation skills. I would without a doubt highly recommend Brian for any real estate needs.
