Case Studies & Testimonials

"We are a small family-owned company and were given a tight timeline to relocate our Columbus location. Occupancy rates were fairly high at the time, so the search was limited from the start. Joe Menninger of NAI Ohio Equities asked a lot of questions about our business to learn what our needs were, both now and in the future, so we were able to see several properties meeting our criteria in a short period of time. As we expanded our search from leasing only to possible purchase, Joe’s experience really paid off, as we had never been down that road before. He was always available by phone or email to answer questions and guide us through the process, and he provided great referrals for both the financing and our plumbing upgrades once the purchase was complete.

Our new property has more square feet than we needed, so we’ve been able to lease out a portion of it as well. Joe has also assisted with that process, and he continues to be a good sounding board as we grow into this building. If & when the time comes to find a new property, I won’t hesitate to contact Joe again and utilize his knowledge, experience, and professionalism."

"Ryan McGreevy very professionally handled the sale of this property and I was very satisfi ed with his work. I look forward to doing future business together."

"Each and every prospective deal is always handled in a professional and compelling manner. Furthermore, the attention to detail and analysis provided with each RFP has greatly helped the partners in their decision making."

"The NAI Ohio Equities Industrial Team has done an excellent job for us. After purchasing Southeast Industrial Park our goal has been to sell the buildings individually. Their team has clearly communicated our objectives to the brokerage community and end users. Through an aggressive marketing effort they have been able to sell 13 of the 18 buildings in the park. We appreciate their determined and honest approach to business."

"We have grown significantly in the past few years and had to lease space at three separate locations in order to accomodate the needs of the agency. I was delighted with the personal commitment made by both Peter and Matt to find us a property that met all of Alvis House's needs. The time and effort they have put forth has been invaluable."

"Joe Menninger and Philip Bird were a delight to work with. They completely understood our parameters and the necessity to sell our real estate, while continuing to maintain our operations in the space during and after the sale."

"Anthony Maronitis and Chris Howard have helped us with a site selection assignment throughout Columbus and the surrounding markets that is of critical importance to our organization. Their performance and professionalism have been of the highest standard. Their knowledge of the markets is deep, and their local connections have served us well. Anthony and Chris have proved themselves to be diligent, hard-working and responsive, as well as being personable and fun to work with.

I have been in the real estate development and brokerage business for over twenty-five years and have worked throughout the country. I wish that I knew local brokers as strong as Chris and Anthony in every market. I would be happy to recommend Anthony and Chris to anyone searching for retail real estate in Central Ohio."

"Working with Matt Gregory and Andy Dutcher was fantastic. They were both very energetic and knowledgeable, responding quickly to our various needs and questions. Both are personable, understood our needs, and supported our effort to start a social enterprise. I would highly recommend them both."

"Maryhaven had been searching for appropriate office space in crawford County for well over a year when John Mally contacted us. We have found this to be a very difficult market in terms of finding space that was suitable for our need to provide behavioral healthcare to assist men and women in restoring their lives when those lives have been interrupted by addiction or mental illness.

Like the rest of our state, Crawford County has a serious problem with the abuse of opiates; through John's good help, we will be able to provide services to these men and women who want to change their lives, thus contributing to better health and safety for that community."

"The 580 South High Company hired Andy and Matt to list and promote our 60,000 square foot office building in the central business district of Columbus about 18 months ago. The building’s ownership believes that we have had the opportunity to see most every qualified prospect that has come through the market that matches our availability. Prior to hiring Andy and Matt, our building had minimal leasing activity. With their expertise, we developed a re-branding of the property, new marketing materials and the ability to attract quality brokers representing good credit tenants. Since they have partnered with us, we have signed a handful of new leases and have prospects lined up to lease our remaining vacancies.

I strongly recommend Andy and Matt to any Landlord who seeks to reposition their building in the market, create leasing momentum and sign new tenants."

"Throughout my extensive search for suitable warehouse/office space for our Canadian based company to have a centrally located Columbus office, John went out of his way to be available and had an extremely pro-active approach.

Our requirements as a small company with multiple requirements made it challenging to find the right space for the right price and John spent the time to find the perfect building with an available 13,600sf, seven docks, and a well negotiated rate. He asked all the right questions to ensure our space is future-proof and scale-able for our rapidly expanding US business.

He has also been very supportive in establishing points of contact with local resources that touch multiple facets of our business - both with the US/Canada Business Association and Columbus 2020. Both organizations have proven to be valuable assets in my growing network. These contacts have helped to establish our foundation in the US and facilitate growth of our US operations."

"In the beginning of 2016, our law firm began touring the Columbus/Worthington office market on our own. We met Andy when he was the leasing agent at Northwoods II, and despite some negative comments we heard from other tenants in the building at that time, Andy made us feel comfortable and confident a deal could be made given the lease up plan that was in place from Wells Fargo. Unfortunately, Wells Fargo decided to put the property up for auction, and we had to explore other opportunities. At that point, we had several discussions with Andy, and our firm retained Andy as our tenant representative because he was honest with us throughout the entire Northwoods II process and he proved to be an expert in understanding the Columbus office market and what it takes for a tenant to make an informed decision. Ultimately, Andy helped us successfully negotiate a long term renewal at our current office building that will serve our needs for the next decade. Our firm would highly recommend his services to any tenant or landlord."

"We gave Matt Gregory the most unreasonable requests - I called it a unicorn, because I knew we would have to sacrifice one of our necessities to get our business opened ASAP. Matt really came through, everything we needed in a space he found, in numerous locations! I cannot imagine anyone could have made the process easier for us, he has a great sense of humor & guided us through the whole process in a way that didn't disrupt the business we were already tending to, which was amazing. We would recommend Matt to anyone who ever needs to find the business space of their dreams. I can't possibly thank him enough or say enough great things about him!"

"Our Company needed help finding office space that not only fit our needs, but provided the opportunity for growth in the future. We hired Andy to assist us in finding space that filled all of our requirements. He was responsive and found space in a the short time frame that we imposed. I would, and have, recommended Andy to others, and would not hesitate to use his services in the future."

"Finding a commercial space for the birth and growth of our company seemed like daunting task. Being a small start-up company with a limited budget had deterred people from helping us in the past. Patrick Larrimer was the exception. He recognized & respected our small business needs of a multi flex unit at a reasonable price. Once we decided on the property that fulfilled our business needs, Patrick made the process seamless and handled all necessary paperwork to expedite Urbn Timber settling into the new space. We would highly recommend Patrick for your Commercial Real Estate needs and will be using him in the future as our business expands."

"Anthony and I are honored to work with some amazing people, and we appreciate everyone who helped get this done. We look forward to building a long lasting relationship and the launch of Jump City Childcare."
