SLC Commercial/Ken & Patty Novak Recommended for Building and Rental Management Services
The purpose of this letter is to provide my unqualified recommendation of SLC Commercial, and in particular Ken and Patty Novak, for Commercial building management and leasing services. A little background on my experience with them.
For the last 20 years I have been the attorney for Fairview South, Inc., the owner of the SunTrust Building located at 2400 SE Federal Highway in Stuart. This is the Martin County headquarters for SunTrust, and is a class A office building with a full covered parking garage. For the first 15 years I was Vice President and in house counsel, and we managed the building ourselves. In 2009 we turned over management and leasing to SLC Commercial, one of the most reputable and successful brokerage and management companies in the area.
To what you need to hear. The company, and Ken and Patty in particular, are excellent in all respects. What you would expect is of course present; excellent tenant relations, timely response to any issues, aggressive marketing. However, since I maintain an office in the building as the owners representative and would have to be handling many other things on my own it is the extra things they provide that distinguish them. They are constantly looking for ways and making excellent suggestions to improve the building and help its marketing in these difficult times.
They also handle the accounting for the building and have come up with numerous ways to save costs, while improving the buildings appearance at the same time. It is a rare occasion that I have to call them about a problem or issue. Usually they're bringing it to me, with a proposed solution and quotes.
In essence, I am more than satisfied with every aspect of their work.
W. Martin Bonan, Esq.
Thank You Note From The City of Port St. Lucie
September 25, 2015
RE: Liberty Medical Property
Dear Ken Martin, CCIM:
I would like to say "Thank you very much for everything!" This Thank You note is long over due especially since the City closed on its purchase of the Liberty Medical Property over a month ago on August 7, 2015. From having the foresight to initially inform me of the listing so that I could pass along the information, to your diligent, dedicated and tireless efforts at brokering a great deal for both the Seller and the City, it is inspiring to meet and work with someone who is as devoted as you are to providing such quality and excellent service for all parties involved in our real estate transaction.
Your unparalleled efforts from making yourself readily available to show us the property multiple times (even multiple times in one day or week) to facilitating attempts to resolve title issues to then a successful closing and handing over of the keys - are sincerely appreciated. I can only hope that in any future real estate transactions that involve my working with a broker would involve working with you.
