Thank you for the excellent work you’ve done on our behalf from 2012-2014, having successfully sold four of our GSA-leased assets totaling nearly 350,000 SF. The deep pool of buyers you brought to the table and the guidance you provided us with was vital in each sales process, and it was always clear that achieving the best possible outcome for us as your client was your top priority. You’ve consistently handled our business with a high degree of professionalism and have been a pleasure to work with throughout.
You diligently pursued the buyer and helped create the competitive aura that improved pricing beyond where we had expected. Despite a limited investor universe driven by the shorter firm term on the lease, you were able to articulate the strengths of the tenancy, the facility’s mission critical nature, and the resulting near-certainty of retention during the termination option period. I believe this was the key to driving value in this particular deal. Needless to say, our expectations were well met. Thank you for your help in completing a successful sale.
I would like to compliment you on the professional work effort you demonstrated in listing and selling our office project. My partners and I have very high standards for the people that we choose to do business with, and you have exceeded all those standards. Your skills and knowledge combined with your attention to detail resulted in a smooth transaction for both sides. Needless to say, we are confident that we achieved the highest possible sales price.

It was imperative to our company that our transaction be handled in a professional and timely manner, so it was vital that we had a broker who possessed the knowledge and expertise necessary to accomplish this goal. We were fortunate enough that you not only met our requirements, but far exceeded them. Due to your knowledge, diligence, and hard work, our transaction was able to flow flawlessly from beginning to end.
We wanted to thank you for the great job you did for us in the recent sale of our GSA – Dept. of Homeland Security property. Our perspective might be a bit different from some of your other clients, as we initially listed the property with another GSA brokerage team…and unfortunately made the wrong initial choice. The other firm grossly over promised and significantly under delivered. In four months, they were not able to generate any meaningful offers, and within the first week, you delivered record pricing.
Thank you for a job well done in the recent sale of our GSA facility. We appreciated the breadth and depth of your market knowledge in the GSA space, which along with your financial acumen, enabled you to provide solid advice and to position our asset well. The marketing plan worked very well and enabled us to achieve our target price in a timely manner. We enjoyed working with you and would not hesitate to call upon your services again.
I want to commend you on your successful efforts in the sale of our Border Patrol facility. You ran a very efficient process that resulted in an excellent outcome for us. Your diligence to detail and thoroughness during the premarketing phase, combined with your knowledge of the various buying groups, was a major contributing factor in maximizing the value of the transaction. Thank you for your help in completing yet another successful sale.
It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation based on your professionalism and the expertise you provided in the marketing and sale of our U.S. Bankruptcy Court facility. From your first analysis to your initial offering, through the contract negotiation, and the final closing, I feel that the transaction was as smooth and planned as any I have ever encountered. Your underlying vast knowledge of the unique GSA processes and lease structure made our job as the seller much easier to manage. Furthermore, because of your contacts and vetting of buyers, I was able to concentrate my efforts on the terms of the sale rather than constantly fielding questions from potential buyers. I would readily recommend your services, without hesitation, to other sellers.
After interviewing several of the top brokerage firms, all of which had government occupied building specialists, it was clear to me that the Cushman & Wakefield team stood a cut above the others and I’m glad you proved me right. Your team over delivered for the partners yet were able to navigate that fine line where both buyer and seller walked away from the deal with a positive experience. Thanks again for all your hard work on getting this deal over the finish line. We couldn’t have done it without you.
