Client Testimonials

"Allen Lindow at CB Richard Ellis Inc. has done an excellent job in all aspects of getting us into a 17,000 sq. ft. facility that suits our requirements. From the initial market study to site evaluations and recommendations to lease negotiations and fit out coordination, Alan and his organization provided highly professional and timely services."

 Michael A. Lento,

VP Corporate Operations, Mac-Gray Services Inc.

"In 2009 we worked with Allen to review our existing and anticipated needs for a manufacturing/office facility. By utilizing Allen's experience and knowledge of the South Florida market, we concluded a multi-year agreement, remaining in our current facility at significantly reduced rates. Allen's approach to the ensuing negotiations was very professional and achieved the best possible result for European Graphics.

Martin Marinov, President, 

European Graphics Communications Group (Advertising, Publishing & Printing)

"Allen has worked for our company for the past 15 years as a key player in our expansion efforts through out the Southeastern United States.  I would say his market knowledge in the form of research, and his experience as a 'deal maker' is probably the greatest asset he brings to the table.  WIth our explosive growth in the past decade, outsourcing real estate makes the most economic sense." 

Cliff Berry, II, President, 

Cliff Berry, Inc. Environmental Services Provider, Fort Lauderdale, Florida

"We deal with many brokers throughout the United States, so when moving into a new market, we like to use a CCIM or SIOR Broker because they are typically better informed and market savvy  Through understanding our business, knowing what we want, and facilitating complex lease negotiations, we gain an important partner, who works for us, not the landlord or developer.” 

Jim Traweek, Partner,

 Prosource, Wholesale,Commercial Flooring Orlando, Florida

"Recently, we had a very specific need to have space with lobby access in a Class A office building in Clearwater, Florida.  Allen was instrumental  in negotiating a lease that included free rent and a healthy improvement allowance from the Landlord.  He is highly competent and creative advisor.  I have referred many clients to him over the past nine years, and my clients have been extremely satisfied with the quality of his work and the breadth of this expertise.” 

Robert Cerrito, CSA, President , 

Senior’s First Financial, LLC , Clearwater, Florida

"We were looking for a Class A Distribution Facility for one of our business units that needed 10-15,000 sq. ft., one ramp, and dock levelers.  After Allen picked us up from our hotel, we toured his “short list.”  In the end, we leased our number one pick, and received over $100,000 in TI’s, more than enough to customize our space.  Allen represented us as if he were an employee of our company, and always kept our best interest at heart.”
