"With the Honda 25,000 SF lease executed, it seems an appropriate time to thank you for all your effort. Without your market knowledge Honda would not have obtained the lease rate it did and without your negotiation skills the concessions made by the landlord in the lease document would not have been made.
Thank you, Harry, the transaction was a success."
"AMB Property Corporation has had a successful and valued business relationship with Harry Tangalakis for many years. Harry is extremely knowledgeable of the South Florida business market, particularly the Fort Lauderdale area. He is personable, has a great sense of humor with the perfect level of professionalism needed in the position of a successful broker.
Harry was first hired to take over a listing agreement on a four building, 550,000 SF portfolio in Broward County. While on this assignment, Harry helped guide AMB to the successful sale of one of the buildings by expertly maneuvering vacancies, and understanding tenant needs. Knowing that this building would soon be vacant in a difficult leasing environment, he repositioned another multi-tenant building in the same portfolio that had vacancy with modern office layouts coveted by a large tenant, and successfully released the building, renewing that tenant for seven years in the third building. He also managed to lease a space that had been vacant for several years in the fourth building in the portfolio.
The above is an excellent example of Harry’s ability to multi-task and highlights his can-do attitude. The choice to hire Harry is an easy one, as he is truly the leading industrial real estate broker in the Fort Lauderdale area.
If you have any questions regarding Harry Tangalakis, please do not hesitate to call."

“I wish to thank you and your team for the great job they carried out related to the marketing and sale of the West McNab building.

“We very much valued both your knowledge and experience in the South Florida real estate market. Based on your input, Hidrock acted in a manner allowing it to achieve a higher than market sale price. You devised and implemented a well-conceived plan. You, as promised, provided us with the timely marketing updates and kept us “in the loop” which enabled us to respond to changing market conditions throughout the existing period.” We are pleased we chose the right team and company for the assignment.”

“Harry and his team assisted our company in connection with the sale of a 545,000 SF warehouse facility we owned in Miramar. Because of the size of the facility, it was difficult to find a single user purchaser interested in that much space in South Florida…However, Harry’s team not only brought credible purchasers to us under difficult circumstances, but their creative marketing and market knowledge materially assisted us in crafting a complex deal. This transaction would not have happened but for Harry’s and his team’s assistance. I would be pleased to recommend Harry and CBRE to others on my experience."

“I wanted to express my sincere appreciation for all your efforts and those of your firm in representing CORT in the recent disposition of our warehouse and district office. Your extensive knowledge of the industrial market, market conditions and purposeful recommendations following months of hard work and determination, have culminated in the successful sale of this property.
This was our second major transaction together, as you were equally helpful in securing the relocation of this business unit to our new home in Boynton Beach as out tenant broker during phase one of this assignment. Our people are very pleased with that outcome."

"We appreciate the effectiveness of the CBRE network on our recent transaction. As a Toronto-based company, we sought assistance from Miles Kettner, an industrial specialist with whom we have worked with here in Canada. Miles sought you out in south Florida and you helped us achieve a successful and timely sale.
As in most sales, Royal Group Technologies was looking to achieve the highest price in a short period of time. We were pleased that through your marketing we were able to generate a series of competitive offers. Most of all we were pleased that your creativity in marketing was effective enough to have an institutional buyer step forward and purchase a building to be vacated. Your expertise and negotiation skills helped us in carrying out an efficient and smooth closing.
We would recommend your professional services to other industrial property owners in the Southwest Florida region."
