“When we found our new “home” the ease with which the negotiations, construction and move in all happened was pretty phenomenal; even though I’d never been through it before. To be able to have our new rent be almost ½ of what it was, have termination ability and no personal liability was so exciting, I could’ve almost screamed. Thanks for caring for us.”
- Dena S. Merriman, D.P.M., Premier Podiatry
“You helped us to find our office space and spent a great deal of time locating a good property to begin our new business venture. I appreciated your patience while we were solidifying our business plan and securing financing. Your counsel and resources were tremendously helpful as we looked at numerous properties before selecting the property we acquired.”
- Timothy A. Michael, President & CEO, Michael Freres & Associates, Inc.
“Thank you so much for all of your help from leasing to financing our building expansion. I have to say putting myself into this new role as Property Manager I was very leery of this new venture, but with your guidance and knowledge we are doing quite well by having 94% of the space leased and we have a building that has been functional and profitable. Thanks for all the invaluable information you were able to give and looking forward to any other future ventures.”
- Cindy Poland, Owner Manager, Pickerington Health Center
“I just wanted to send along our organization’s appreciation for all the help and good work you’ve provided us over the past several years. Your tireless efforts in identifying potential sites for our CHOICES building led eventually to a perfect solution for LSSCO. Not only did you help us identify the site but your efforts to negotiate a fair deal saved us countless hours. More recently you helped us sell three apartment buildings in Lancaster. The success of these transactions was of great importance to our non-profit organization as we continued our recovery from the impacts of the pandemic.”
