“I have never experienced a broker with such patience, perseverance and positivity in seeing a property close.” -Lori Medak, Commercial Manager, Fidelity National Title

“If it weren’t for Jon, over the term of our lease, we would unknowingly be paying $4,800 more per month in rent – capital that we’re now able to invest in our operations.  He proved to me the value of using a broker...” - Scott Hughes, Evans Components, Inc.

“[It was Jon’s] working with the buyer, negotiating and bringing in ideas that got him [the buyer] to finally take action…In today’s world [Jon] proved that you can do business in this kind of a down market and still maintain a high level of integrity."  -Don Ballantyne, Property Owner

"Jon Rubey and Colliers International did a great job of protecting our interests as well as the interests of our tenant in a building that I own. He structured an agreement that gave me some protection during the slow time in the marketing cycle and at the same time gave our tenant the flexibility they were looking for in searching for a purchase of their own." - Todd Hess

“Jon Rubey has been a wonderful part of our team for years.  I say part of our team because the work he does for us is integral to our growth, and he treats our needs as an organization as if they were his own.  He has a wonderful sense of seeing these needs, expressing them professionally and honestly to our constituents and our potential business partners, and closing the deal when all feels right.” - Joe Connell, VP of Retail Operations | Habitat for Humanity
