Pamela Harris

Dear Joe, Thank you very much for the great job you did in selling Northtowne Square Shopping Center in Lakeland, Florida, for our company, Clearwater Bay Marina, LLC. Over the years, it has always been a pleasure working with you. This is the second deal we have done together and, ironically, both transactions were for $8,000,000! We look forward to working with you again on some of our other properties, as we always feel you have our best interest at heart. If I can ever serve as a reference, please do not hesitate to let me know. I hope you and your family have a safe and happy 2020. Very truly yours, Pamela Harris, Director, Acquisitions/Sales, Decade Properties, Inc.

Dear Joseph, Joe, this now makes over 160,000 square feet of retail we have purchased from you over the last couple of years! Please keep those great deals coming our way as we are always willing to look at value opportunities like the ones you have presented. We at M&P Shopping Centers wish you continued success in all of your endeavors. If you ever need a reference, please feel free to have them contact me. Very truly yours, Michael Plasker, Vice President M&P Shopping Centers

Charles H. Von Stein

Dear Joe, Not only did you work diligently to bring us the initial offer, but your persistence in helping to move the transaction to contract and closing was substantially greater than most broker participation. Looking forward to working with you again. Best regards, Charles H. Von Stein Commercial Venture Services, Inc.

Matthew C. Hart

Dear Joe, On behalf of Noble Properties, I would like to thank you for the professional manner in which you presented Hillside Center in Ocala. The transaction was smooth from the moment we received the marketing information. You were continuously available and provided us with all the requested material. We are very proud of our newest addition to our growing portfolio and would be pleased to have the opportunity to work with you on a future acquisition. Feel free to call us anytime with properties you feel would fit our criteria. Sincerely, Matthew C. Hart Senior Vice President Noble Properties

Timothy J. O’Neill, Jr.

Dear Joe, As I mentioned to you when we first spoke, our group is very selective in its acquisitions, and most of the property submissions that we get are from real estate professionals who don’t quite grasp what we are looking for. Obviously, you listen well and understand our criteria, as the very first property that you brought us was absolutely perfect for us. I can’t stress enough how happy we are with your ability to identify a deal which fit our needs so well, and how impressed we are with the commitment that you showed towards getting the deal finalized. It has been a pleasure working with you on this transaction, and I look forward to many years of business deals and friendship. Sincerely, Timothy J. O’Neill, Jr. HIghland Pointe Partners L.P.

Jon B. Nelson

Dear Joe, I want to thank you for the excellent job you did for us in marketing and selling the 32 unit apartment building for our firm. I appreciate the fact that you consistently kept me informed of your activities on our behalf, including advertisements and feedback from potential purchasers. The nature of our business is such that we are likely to have future need in Florida relating to the sale and purchase of real estate. Because of your professional assistance and the positive results in that instance, please be assured that we will contact you again when the need arises. I would also be pleased to recommend your services. Jon B. Nelson Vice President, RIVA Financial Services, Inc.

J. Philip Stambaugh

Dear Mr. Freck, I wanted to take time and thank you for the great job you did for us in marketing and selling Corey Landings. If you would not have come up with the creative financing proposal, I’m not sure we would have gone to closing. Also, I truly appreciated you sending me copies of the various advertisements you ran on our behalf. I knew you were always looking our for our best interest. I would be pleased to recommend your service, or to serve as a reference for you anytime. Once again, “thank you”. Sincerely, J. Philip Stambaugh, The J. Philip Stambaugh Trust

Dear Mr. Freck, I wanted to thank you, personally, for the professional manner in which you handled the sale of my property in Gainesville. By keeping me posted on the activity generated on the building, I felt confident that I had listed the property with the right Realtor.
