"NAI Ohio Equities has worked with Campus Partners in a various roles including acquisitions, dispositions and consulting on various projects. In two separate projects for Campus Partners, they were able to compel property owners who were previously unwilling to enter into negotiations, to sell their properties, allowing projects important to both the University and the community at large to move forward."

- Keith Myers, Associate Vice President Planning and Real Estate

"NAI Ohio Equities did a great job with our search for land to build a new Lexus service facility. Rigid requirements dictated both by state law and customer convenience narrowed the property parameters significantly, but NAI Ohio Equities persevered and gave us great options along with great expertise in the market. Additionally, they were able to negotiate a contract that gave us the time we needed to entitle the property to allow for the required zoning and street access. Over all, working with NAI Ohio Equities was a great experience."

- Rick Germain, Germain Lexus
