We couldn’t be more pleased with Ben’s work, as our representative, in the recent sale of our 4 parcel Santa Cruz commercial property, to 3 separate buyers, two of whom with separate lenders, all while processing lot line adjustments with the City. Calm, cool, determined, and expertly managed, through every step of the complex process, Ben evidenced a wisdom beyond his years and got a combined price that more than met our expectations.
I’ve worked with Ben both as owner of New Leaf, and, more recently, on some personal real estate investment opportunities. I couldn’t imagine finding a better resource for this kind of work than Ben. He was extremely helpful to my business, helping us find the optimal locations, often outside normal channels, as he is both hard-working and incredibly resourceful. And, he knows how to entice the property owner with the quality of tenant that we are. In a very competitive real estate market, we were able to secure locations over much larger entities, and I give Ben credit for helping us to achieve that. After selling New Leaf, Ben found properties that I could invest in that would provide me with a stable passive income stream, not to mention that they have been very lucrative investments, and that I would not have to spend a great deal of time managing. And Ben does not walk away after the sale is complete, always willing to assist with issues that might arise post-close. You’re not going to find a better person to work with than Ben!
Ow Commercial is one of my favorite brokers to work with because they perform; they bring us qualified buyers, answer questions after reviewing due diligence materials and site inspections, and most importantly, never miss a deadline. I value the fact that Ow Commercial stays fully engaged in the transaction from the first letter of intent until the close of escrow. We prefer to sell our properties on an “off-market basis” and as soon as I have a marketable property, I contact Ow Commercial knowing they will bring a strong buyer and help negotiate mutually beneficial terms. We have had many happy investors and repeat buyers thanks to Ow Commercial and I look forward to our next project together, knowing it will go smoothly.
For many years we have enjoyed and benefited by working with Benjamin Ow/Ow Commercial on property sales and 1031 exchanges associated with our estate planning. Ow Commercial has guided us into more profitable and lucrative property investments over the years by exchanging our older, management intensive properties, into quality net leased investments with strong tenants that provide us with excellent monthly income.
We had the pleasure of working with Benjamin Ow/Ow Commercial on a time sensitive and complicated 1031 exchange requirement. Ow Commercial helped us navigate the nuances of the 1031 exchange process while meeting our investment criteria of exchanging into multiple properties in different markets that offered asset diversification, strong real estate fundamentals, quality tenants, and stable income streams. Benjamin is a true professional and we look forward to working with him on another transaction soon.
