?? Thank you to Michael Crim and CK Commercial for your trust and confidence to handle this very important 2-part process involving the disposition of a 3-story office building, and acquisition of a new flex space to house the new worldwide HQ for CK! ??? This was a unique, challenging but very rewarding process…
This involved the disposition of a multi-story suburban office property, quickly followed by a search to secure a new and more appropriate home for CK (happening simultaneously once office building sale was under contract during due diligence)…
Factors at hand: Covid (duh), we had to successfully market + sell existing property for top dollar, locate more appropriate property in same submarket, manage all timelines and successfully complete goals within 3-6 month timeframe.
Added Bogey: Severe lack of inventory to purchase, however we were able to find the ‘diamond in the rough’…EXCEPT, within 1 day on market, we were faced with a competitive offer situation in order to secure the new property.
Outcome: When you combine like-minded business owners that don’t take “no” for an answer, and must win…
Result: Office building sold for top dollar (97.5% of ask) + competitive offer situation WON (terms are so important) + due diligence timelines & associated hurdles managed to all party’s satisfaction, and…. both properties settled within 1 week of each other.
We’re absolutely thrilled Mike and the CK team achieved their ideal outcome & secured what will be an amazing new HQ to house the next chapter of growth for an incredibly hard-working organization. Cannot wait to see the new WORLDWIDE HQ for CK!!!!!! ??
In our situation, we had previously engaged a national firm to guide us, and unfortunately, they provided limited to no opportunities for us over an extended duration. When contemplating our next steps, it quickly became apparent for us to team with John & the Rosso team.
Having worked closely with John on other projects and witnessing his personal approach firsthand, we knew he would treat us as a highly regarded client and work tirelessly to complete a deal for us. Since making that decision, we have been fortunate to have worked with John on several transactions, including purchases, sales lease negotiations, construction projects and more. Every single transaction has gone exceptionally well due to John’s commitment and continued engagement in the process from start to finish.
John’s hustle is unmatched, and his ability to find and close deals is second to none. While his deep-rooted personal connections and relationships are the foundation of his success, going the extra mile to make his clients’ lives easier is an everyday standard for John. He cares, and it shows. John made the impossible possible for our situation and did it in record time in an unstable market. The process, which can feel daunting, was truly refreshing and managed seamlessly from start to finish.
Understanding how and why John’s clients love working with him and the Rosso Commercial team is clear. John has a lifelong client in us, and I look forward to continuing to work with him and his team for many years to come.
