NEWS RELEASE - July 14, 2014
A good Realtor doesn’t broker a deal for a client and then sever ties when the transaction is complete. A good Realtor builds relationships with clients that will last into the future. Building a trusting relationship with clients is what led to the June 30, 2014, sale of 8870 Mentor Avenue in Mentor.
When the Mentor Avenue building became available for sale, Rick Ferris, President of Sequoia Realty Corp. based in Mentor, Ohio, had a particular client in mind who he had worked with before. Per Ferris, “by getting to know my clients, I am often able to match available commercial real estate with clients’ business goals.” When 8870 Mentor Avenue became available, Ferris contacted the client, now known as 8870 Mentor Avenue, LLC. The client felt confident that Ferris was introducing them to a suitable business opportunity based on their previous transactions brokered by Ferris. The client referred to Ferris as “a professional with a high level of integrity who is well-respected in the community.”
The property, which houses a branch of Chase Bank and Aladdin’s Restaurant, turned out to be just the right opportunity for 8870 Mentor Avenue, LLC. From the first introduction to the property to the closing, this transaction was smooth sailing. Per the client, “after seeing the property, doing our due diligence and closing, we feel that this is an excellent long term investment.”
