discussion about whether we should hire a broker at all, we settled upon Simon Mattox and his Team, we could not be happier that we did. Simon and his team did a fantastic job dealing with our diverse ownership group, soliciting dozens of competitive offers, and ultimately selling the property for a price that exceeded our expectations. His team could not have been more responsive and professional, and I wholeheartedly recommend Simon and the CBRE SoCal Retail – Investment Sales & Leasing Advisory Services Team to anyone considering selling commercial property.
