I met with Brian and RJ with limited knowledge of a Sale/Leaseback transaction. Not only did they give me a great understanding of the cost/benefits; they were able to guide me through the process with no pressure. It was a very comfortable transaction. I should also note that they were able to close the deal in 4 days at year end

My experience with Brian and RJ was top notch from start to finish. They were extremely professional and thorough without pressuring us. The 1031 process went smoothly with their guidance, ultimately finding an exchange property that met our requirements. I would use them again without reservation.

We had the opportunity to work with RJ and Brian on a sizable commercial building sale. There were multiple challenges including an uncooperative tenant, complex due diligence and several other last minute requirements. Brian and RJ acted very professionally and through diligence, persuasion and attention to detail secured the necessary paperwork and compliance literally in the 11th hour to save the transaction. I would highly recommend them for any commercial real estate transaction.
