“In this challenging economic climate, his creativity, market knowledge and negotiation skills were well established by the pricing he was able to achieve, and we believe the fact that he was able to negotiate and successfully close the sale of our property at 60% above the appraised value in this market is most worthy of recognition” – John Presley Shelton III, Asset Manager at Prescient, Inc. 

“I truly appreciated your willingness to roll up your sleeves and work hard – seems simple, but not a lot of guys do it as well as you did in this deal. Over the 11 months from offer to close, you consistently provided creative and objective solutions to difficult issues that appeared irresolvable. Selling a large, master-planned land project during an embattled entitlement process required persistence and professionalism – you exhibited a great deal of both.” – William Walton, Hudson Advisors, LLC.
