What My Clients Are Saying

Stan at CRE Consultants was unbelievable to work with in searching for an industrial location in Fort Myers. Coming from out of state and with a limited knowledge of the Fort Myers Market, CRE provided the most thorough research, information, options, and follow up to assist in exploring our opportunities. On top of that, putting together a tour on short notice during a holiday week went above and beyond any expectations I had. Professional with a great personal touch would be the way I would describe Stan, and based on our interactions I am not sure why you would use anybody else.

I want to thank you for all the hard work and effort that was required to complete the sale on my commercial property. I appreciated that communication was fast and responsive during the entire process, that unfortunately turned out to not be a straight forward sale. We had a problem tenant and I was really pleased how this was swiftly dealt with, leveraging your local network that I would not have been able to have coordinated as effectively in the aggressive timeframe required. This was above and beyond what would normally be expected of a sales broker, and I really appreciated this extra effort and the result you achieved.

~Jasmine Feteiha

My wife and I signed with stan, to assist us in the purchase of replacement properties for a 1031 exchange. The sale of the property we were exchanging closed in mid-October and, working with Stan and his team, we had all of our replacement properties identified and under contract at favorable prices within the 45 day window for identification. Our experience working with Stan has been outstanding. He is a man of uncompromising integrity. He is enthusiastic and loves what he does. Long experience in the Southwest Florida commercial real estate market, combined with his creative genius enables him to recognize opportunities that others overlook. And his top priority is getting the deal that is best for his client, even when that results (as it did in our case) in a significantly smaller commission for him.
