We chose Justin Smith because he provided valuable market information several years in advance of our lease expiration, demonstrated a genuine and professional interest in our needs, and promptly responded to our request with useful information and sound advice
Justin helped us navigate and negotiate dozens of issues within a very difficult lease document. He followed up on all outstanding customer services issues with our existing and future landlord and provided vendors for us to get our new building up and running. We would work with Justin again and recommend that you do so too!
What we learned in this process is that Justin is accountable, responsible and he works hard until the job is done. We appreciate his efforts and look forward to working together on the next assignment.
I just wanted the two of you to know how much we appreciate you and your team leasing our building at 3501 W Segerstrom Ave in Santa Ana. It was your strategy to price the building at a very competitive rate and your marketing ideas that got the job done.
Justin Smith helped me understand how to successfully use my existing property to finance my business. He provided the flexibility whereby we could take a dual strategy approach of performing a sale leaseback or a user sale and relocation.
We worked successfully with Justin Smith and his team at Lee & Associates over the course of the last two years on our 50,333 SF industrial building lease. During this process Justin was able to bring the necessary resources to the table and we were able to meet with high caliber developers that gave us valuable information. We look forward to working with him in the future and recommend him for your company’s real estate needs.
Justin’s attentiveness to our needs did not stop once the lease was signed. Justin Smith has done an excellent job identifying properties, advising us as his client, representing us in lease negotiation process and providing service after the close of the deal. I have recommended him to colleagues looking for a commercial real estate agent.
Our firm thrives on the timely cooperation with the brokerage industry and I have found Justin to be very prompt, thorough and accommodating in responding to our needs. He was able to keep us abreast of market transactions as they took place and provide accurate information for our investment committee as necessary.
Justin guided me throughout the process so that I had realistic expectations of the leasing environments. He was able to help with relocation expense budgets, the nuances of subleasing, tactical negotiations with our existing landlord, and in addition, he had a myriad of vendors at the ready for any potential build out options.
During the deal process, Justin displayed a level of professionalism that I value. He provided excellent direction on the needs and issues of his client and provided the ground work for a straightforward agreement. Within weeks we had agreed upon a mutually beneficial lease for both parties.
