Seller's Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

"When it's time to sell or lease your commercial real estate, you will probably have a lot on your mind:  What is my property worth? Who is a likely Tenant or Purchaser? Where do I find a Tenant or Purchaser? How long will it take?

It takes experience to be able to answer those questions. You deserve to have an experienced partner through the process who sells and leases only commercial real estate. For 24 years I have represented Buyers and Sellers of commercial and investment real estate exclusively in Hall, Gwinnett, Jackson, and Forsyth counties. Don't go down the road alone. With 26 Atlanta and North Georgia offices, Prudential and I have the resources and the experience to help you.

"How do I know you are the agent who can sell or lease my property?"

Past performance DOES indicate future results. You can be assured of my abilities to sell or lease your commercial property because of the satisfied clients I have. You can read about their experiences with me by clicking "Testimonials" to the left of this paragraph or click on "Client Letters" at the bottom of this page. These are just a few letters of recommendation. Numerous other case-specific letters are available upon request.

"Why even use a commercial real estate agent?"

Selling and leasing commercial investment property is a time consuming and complicated process and requires special skills. Prudential spends millions upon millions of dollars advertising to the world so that Buyers of real estate feel comfortable picking up the phone and calling a Prudential office. A willing Buyer and willing Seller determine the price. I will help you reach more willing and pre-qualified Buyers.

Exposure to the market and local real estate knowledge. I will reach qualified buyers that someone putting up a sign and an ad in the paper will never reach.

Where I earn my pay is through contract preparations and contract negotiations. Thirteen years of experience have helped me learn how to protect my clients from unforeseen consequences. I have years of experience making commercial real estate transactions HAPPEN.
