Client Testimonials

We have worked with Providence Commercial over the past 10 years. They have gone out of their way to represent our interests in an aggressive and professional manner. As public service, non-profit broadcasters, we have several special real estate needs. They grasp the complexities of our service and have done a great job translating them into cost-effective offices, studios, and public meeting space.
Roger Sarow, WFAE Public Radio & University Radio Foundation - President and General Manager
It was a pleasure working with Providence Commercial. Due to some extenuating circumstance, our multitenant mixed use property was not performing as desired. We engaged Providence to help us reposition and lease up the property. Implementing a new marketing plan, we quickly entered into a number of leases that significantly increased our occupancy. Providence then brought us a buyer and we were able to exit the property at a price above our expectations. With Providence’s help we turned a troubled property into performing asset.
David Dunham, Bixby Bridge Capital, LLC - Asset Manager, Miranda Partners
Providence Commercial, made our search for a new office location a seamless endeavor. They listened to our needs and understood what we were looking for before presenting recommended spaces to review. This not only allowed us to find the perfect fit, but minimized the amount of time spent doing so. As well, they negotiated an excellent deal on our lease. We love our new digs – Thanks!
Karen Rodriguez, Charlotte Magazine/City Magazines - Group Publisher
I engaged Providence Commercial to help me locate a new medical office property off Randolph Road. My geography and space needs were very specific so the search required a lot of patience in waiting for the right opportunity to present itself. We extensively explored rental options and purchase options. Providence Commercial diligently stayed in touch with me over a period of several years, showing me rental and sale properties, and providing ongoing useful market feedback which eventually led me to select and purchase a property that was a great fit for my practice. They negotiated hard on my behalf and I am very happy with all that Providence Commercial did for me and my investment. I can definitely recommend them.
J. Wesley Heroman, M.D. , Carolina Retina & Vitreous Consultants
Our organization, a leading global manufacturer and service provider in the industrial compressor industry, is headquartered in India. We have engaged Providence Commercial twice now for our tenant representation needs. Initially, we needed a location on a shorter term basis in a specific geography close to our partner company--- They handily found us exactly what we needed. The second time around we not only increased our square footage needs considerably but we added complexity to our facility needs and as well expanded the geographic focus. They provided us numerous solid directions that checked all the boxes and as a result we swiftly inked a deal.... Not only do they understand the Charlotte market well but they did a great job of listening to what we truly needed which expedited the search process for us. As we continue to grow and our needs for a potential relocation arise, in the Charlotte Region, we’ll look forward to working with them again!
Hannu Heinonen, ELGI Compressors USA, Inc. - President
Our organization is a trusteeship chartered by the Federal government. We engaged Providence Commercial this past year to help us find an approximate 6,000 square foot office space solution. Since our square footage needs were not projected to change for the foreseeable future, our goal was to obtain a long-term lease in a full-service tower in the Morehead-Midtown, Park Road or Southpark submarket that would meet our needs for many years to come. While our needs were not atypical, our operating budget is subject to review by our supervisory government agency. Therefore, it was essential for us to find the best possible building solution at an aggressive rate. We very much enjoyed our experience with Providence. They did exactly what we requested of them in an efficient and effective manner, listened well to our concerns and were always accessible for us. They immediately commenced a search of our targeted submarkets, presented well-researched and realistic options for us to consider – presenting the pros and cons of each – and negotiated well on our behalf to obtain a very satisfactory result. We believe that Providence Commercial is an excellent commercial real estate source in the Charlotte market for organizations large or small.
Warren L. Tadlock , Western District of North Carolina - Chapter 13 Standing Trustee
I want to express how much I appreciate all of Providence Commercial’s assistance in helping me locate an income-producing investment property to purchase. I specifically appreciated how well they listen, which helped me easily narrow down my choice to the perfect purchase price, return, lease structure and location. The property we ended up purchasing is a perfect match and meets all of my investment goals-- I will definitely look to them again for assistance for my next commercial real estate need.
Joe Freeman, Freeman Screen Printers/Freeman Properties LLP - Owner/Principal
When we engaged Providence Commercial, we were looking across the spectrum of leased and for purchase properties that would meet our special requirements in Charlotte. Despite the low availability of suitable properties in Charlotte they were very patient with us, they listened well, reacted quickly when properties came on the market and provided us with appropriate guidance that enabled us to obtain a property that perfectly meets our needs. We would recommend them to any organization needing a expert partner to navigate them through this process of finding commercial real estate in Charlotte.
Gen Kelsang Tilopa, Kadampa Meditation Center – North Carolina
Like a true partner, from inception to the execution of the concept, Providence Commercial was there to listen, analyze, organize and navigate throughout the process to make sure we met our objectives.
Michael Adams, Hawthorne Holding Group, LLC - Partner
What impressed me most about working with Providence Commercial was the amount of time that they saved me-- And I think it all derived from how well they initially listened in order to really understand what my business needed. Combined with their expert knowledge of the marketplace, I ended up purchasing the very first property that we toured because it was exactly what I wanted. We examined a few more candidates but it didn’t take long to know that I already had my decision… And that saved me an inordinate amount of time.
Judith Shelton, Shelton Taylor and Associates - Principal
As an accounting professional, I am often asked to handle my client’s business affairs including their real estate holdings. I recently engaged Providence Commercial with the task of finding a tenant for a client’s commercial property in Midtown. Initially, they provided realistic pricing and time-frame expectations, as well as excellent insight in regards to what types of prospects would best match our space. The Providence team exceeded our expectations by quickly brokering a long term lease with an excellent tenant who was a great match for our property - at our asking rate! I definitely plan to engage Providence Commercial for any of my other client’s real estate concerns.
David W. McNeish, Miller McNeish Breedlove & Hearn, P.A. - Partner
Working with Providence Commercial was a great experience for DealCloud. Until we partnered with Providence, we were having a difficult time finding creative space with the image and location we wanted to portray to our customers and prospective employees. Providence found that space quickly for us, and then helped us successfully negotiate a fairly complex deal that consisted of subleasing from an existing tenant and then adding an extension term with owner of the property.
Rob Cummings, Deal Cloud, Inc. - Co-Founder
Providence Commercial took on the task of finding a tenant to fill a suite within my Southend, 6000sf office building near uptown. The task was tricky from the standpoint that the new tenant’s use needed to coincide with my own business operations that occupied the bulk of the building. It was essential that the new mix in this intimate space worked both comfortably and cohesively for everyone, especially my employees and clients. They had to hustle and proactively find interested parties for this unique space and actually gave us a few final tenants to choose from in this down market. Providence Commercial diligently and effectively marketed my space finding me a great tenant for a multi-year deal in a very competitive midtown real estate market. I would personally recommend Providence Commercial. Thanks guys!
Jack Burke, Burke Communications - President/Owner
“My asset is an office property in SouthEnd in the Camden Square West development. Within 4 weeks of hiring Providence Commercial to market my property, they had a fully executed deal completed for me with a great technology group. Even better, they put together a deal where I had no upfront costs and I did not have to provide any free rent. These guys know exactly what they’re doing and really move fast. They’re on my speed dial.”
Arthur Oudmayer, DesignSmart, LLC - Managing Member
I am a business owner & real estate investor who resides in the Washington, DC area… Because of its strength & value, I decided that I wanted to place some capital in Charlotte’s Commercial Real Estate Market. Being based out of state though, I needed to find a partner who understood the market & would provide me the personal attention I needed to select the right investment. I actually met Providence Commercial initially at a property I found on my own where they represented the seller... That property was not a fit but because of my immediate positive experience with them, I decided that I found the right partner to represent my interests in a search. So far, we have already closed on one property and are already in the process of identifying a second… Working with them has been positive on all fronts & I am very satisfied with their level of service. They were very accessible & helpful during the discovery phase and then did a great job presenting, comparing & contrasting multiple opportunities. Lastly, they delivered very useful recent comps that helped us negotiate the right deal.
Deames A. Peoples, Engineering, Software & Network Services - Private Investor & V.P./COO
As a partner at a Planning/Engineering firm here in Charlotte, my time and energies are primarily focused on running my business. As an owner of a 9000 sf multi-tenant building on Morehead St. I am also very interested in finding quality tenants for my building. Recognizing that my expertise is not commercial real estate, I knew the best course of action would be to team with a professional group; a firm who would have the time and expertise to help me analyze market conditions, find tenants and then negotiate fair and equitable deals. For over five years I have trusted Providence Commercial to help me with finding the right tenants. They are great to work with and have been successful every time I have put them to task.
Derek C. Williams, Benesch - Partner
We decided to switch to Providence Commercial after working with another brokerage outfit. What a difference! They were referred to us by a trusted client as a great firm who hustles and really knows the Charlotte market. In short order, they had multiple property showings right out of the gate and then quickly negotiated and inked a long term lease deal for us in four months. The previous group had represented us for twelve months and never seemed to have any showings. I found them to be very knowledgeable, professional and I enjoyed working with them..… And they found a tenant that is a perfect match for our building (which we also occupy) off Providence Road. I’ll definitely recommend them to anyone who asks and they will be my first phone call the next time!
Gray Langley, Farris Cooke & Associates, P.A - Partner
Our firm purchased and completely renovated an older building in Southend. We specifically had 2 separate suites in the design as our goal was to organically grow into the whole building over time. In the meantime, we needed a tenant to offset the large upfront investment. Providence hustled and did a fantastic job finding us a long-term tenant to occupy the empty suite. Additionally, they negotiated a great deal on our behalf where we had very little upfront improvement costs to get them into the space. The brokers at Providence Commercial know their stuff and are very capable professionals.
Mark Sutherland, Vision Builders and Design. - President
In working with Providence Commercial during our search for a unique property in the SouthEnd and WestEnd areas of Charlotte, I was impressed with their knowledge of the area and creativity in finding us a new office. To be honest our criteria for a new location was difficult and they continually provided us with new listings to review and helped with our negotiations as we selected our new location. I would highly recommend the whole Providence Commercial Team.
Luis Costales, Atypic - Creative Director + Founder
On a tight time span, our company had a lease expiration quickly-approaching and badly needed to find new industrial/office flex property in the Southwestern Mecklenburg County area to serve as our Western North Carolina District home office. I had a great experience with Providence Commercial. They were very knowledgeable and quickly found exactly what I needed. In addition, they negotiated such a great deal for me that I was able to move into a property larger than my original scope which will make future business expansion easier. They provided me great value and I highly recommend hiring them.
Greg Weaver, VSC Fire & Security, Inc. (Formerly Worsham Sprinkler Co.) - Vice President
My business is a combination of baseball/softball instruction and personal training. I needed an in-town locale that offered me not only a combination of office space with high-ceiling warehouse but was in a location that was convenient for my many customers who reside in Dilworth/Myers Park. So the typical industrial flex parks in SW Charlotte would be just too far away and because many of the parents dropping their children off are mothers, my location has to be very clean and safe. I was growing frustrated with my search and was spending far too much time on finding real estate and waiting on call-backs, proposals, etc…. So I decided to hire Providence Commercial and it really was a fantastic experience. They responded quickly, educated me on the market and then negotiated a great deal for me on a space that was just perfect. My only regret is that I wished I had hired them back when my search had begun.
Chris Vasami, Vasami Training, Inc. - President
One of our properties in Charlotte is a beautiful 5000sf building on Morehead Street. Unfortunately though, it sat empty for some time due to a very difficult commercial real estate market. We first attempted to try to find a tenant on our own but after no success decided to hire a broker and see what they could do. We interviewed a few firms and decided to hire Providence Commercial because they are very active in the Charlotte market and showed the eagerness and ability to help us find a solution. A solid prospect was soon identified and Providence was able to create and negotiate a very interesting long-term solution that would require no up-front improvement costs on our part. We’re very glad we made the choice to hire Providence… They really came through for us!
Kenneth R. Benton, Baucom, Claytor, Benton, Morgan & Wood, PA - Partner
I was first referred to Providence Commercial by my veterinarian… Providence had helped them in the past secure office space & spoke very highly of them. So we met with them & decided they were a great group. They assisted us in identifying, vetting and closing a deal on some great Class A office space on Morehead Street… We were not an easy client as our priorities shifted along the way and it took us some time to figure out exactly what we wanted. They were extremely patient, professional and guided us through every step throughout the process. They possesses an impressive array of knowledge on the Charlotte commercial real estate market, are quite adept at the art of negotiation and were very personable the whole time. I now consider them a friend as well as a business partner and would recommend them to anyone with commercial real estate needs in the Charlotte area.
Porter T. McManus, The Partners Group- Managing Director
The work Providence Commercial performed over the last four years has made me an extremely happy, albeit former, property owner. They exhibited unwavering commitment through their diligence and determination to helping me achieve my goal. I needed to lease or sell a small office building (3,600 sq ft) in the Elizabeth neighborhood just as the market turned. Providence Commercial took on the challenge and within the first year most of the space was under lease. They kept the building leased until an offer to buy was presented four years later. The sale recently closed. Sounds simple. Well, my requirements made it just a little more difficult. Providence Commercial rose to the occasion. And it is due to their flexibility and professionalism that this journey ended with such a successful outcome. They are uniquely qualified to work with owners of small to medium sized properties. They offer a level of personal service almost impossible to find in today's marketplace. They care. And it shows, in the relationships they establish with their clients and the service they provide as a matter of fact. You will not find a better firm to represent your interests if you have space to lease or a building to sell.
Ruth Castleberry, Turtle & Dragon Works - Principal
Our company engaged Providence Commercial for representation because they balance honesty, accessibility and hard work extremely well. On top of that, they do the research to understand the market well and know how to get the job done… You get personal attention and you get a professional!
Charles Walden, Metro Masonry, Inc. - President
Our investment group hired Providence Commercial because of their eagerness, professionalism and expertise. Our experience was extremely positive-- They were thorough, provided very helpful market feedback to us and kept us in the loop throughout the whole search process. Not only did they succeed in getting us a long-term tenant but through their network of vendors they were also able to introduce us to a great contractor that quickly and inexpensively built out the space to the tenant’s specifications.
Michael Greenspon, Greenspon Properties, LLC - Partner
We chose Providence Commercial because of their creativity and flexibility in marketing our uptown sub-lease space in the Cotton Mill Building. They really did their homework prior to meeting us for the first time by providing current and relevant market data. Overall, they did an excellent job connecting with the types of professionals most interested in leasing our loft space.
Jim Babinchak AIA, 505 Design Charlotte, Inc. - Principal
Providence Commercial assisted my company in two ways - Lease renewal for our existing space and searching for a new alternate tenant space. They are extremely professional, ethical, and knowledgeable. They listened to our needs and guided us to make the right decision for our business at the time. I will continue to work with them as our needs and tenant space requires change.
Caren Bistany, Bistany Design - Owner
After Completing the build out of our new Investment Property at 1927 S. Tryon in SouthEnd, Providence Commercial was instrumental in helping us market and successfully lease the available space. I would definitely use Providence Commercial again... Thanks for all your help!
Jeffrey J. Casey and Steven M. Stell , CG & SS Properties, LLC - Managers
The brokers at Providence Commercial possess all the best traits one would hope for in a real estate professional. They are knowledgeable about the marketplace, responsive to client needs, and effective negotiators. They are also driven to serve their clientele irrespective of the magnitude of the product and achieve their goals.
Jameson P. Wells, Jameson P. Wells, P.A. - Owner
“I wanted to thank the team at Providence Commercial for their great work leasing our East Boulevard office building. They helped us position the property correctly in the market, which wasn’t easy given its historic designation and need for extensive renovations. They advised us on improvements, proposed an excellent marketing plan, and generated many showings. Just as important, they kept us informed, and ultimately found a great tenant within a short period of time.”
Frank Warren, 1201 East Blvd. Properties, LLC - Manager
Providence Commercial went out of their way to lease my retail property in an aggressive and professional manner. I had previously tried another firm with no positive results. They kept in touch with me regularly and took a proactive approach to finding a tenant. I appreciate the manner with which the entire transaction proceeded and I will certainly use this firm again.
Chuck Adkins, Shops at Lakeview, LLC - Owner
I hired Providence Commercial to help lease/sell my 4400sf building on 4th St. in Midtown. In addition to conventional brokerage services, what I found most refreshing was the level of service and value they provided during our relationship. In an effort to improve the marketability and positioning of my property, they went well beyond the norm, giving me some great suggestions to improve on the building exterior, including renderings which I ended up implementing. I feel these enhancements were instrumental in helping find a tenant and eventually a buyer that closed on the property. In summary, their professionalism, friendliness, attention to detail and level of service exceeded all expectations. I can unequivocally recommend them for any of your real estate needs.
Michael J. Bake, Property Owner - 1422 E 4th St.
I had spoken with Providence for quite some time about my needs for an affordable small law office close to the court house. They were extremely diligent and patient with us and found the perfect space to suit our needs. Not only are they great in negotiating a lease, they also helped us put a team together to up fit the office beautifully at an affordable price. I highly recommend their services to others.
David R. Lange, Attorney at Law
Providence did an outstanding job marketing our commercial space for sub-lease. They have been one of the most proactive, in-touch, creative real estate brokers we’ve worked with to date and we appreciate the hard work they did. Simply put, they found a qualified and perfect tenant for us in an extremely difficult market. We are especially impressed, considering the dozens of comparable properties to ours that continue to remain vacant.
Brena Huffman, Huffman Law, PLLC - Owner
Our Ohio-based Roofing Supply Company recently decided to expand into the Charlotte region. Making a large investment and learning about a new region can be both scary and overwhelming but Providence Commercial patiently helped us navigate the process not only supplying us with great property ideas but also providing us crucial insight that would greatly affect our specific geographic focus— Ultimately giving us the best chance to succeed. We ended up choosing a 15,000sf flex/office building that they presented to us… As well, they negotiated a great deal for us. We’re glad we hired them to represent us in the search-- Thanks fellas!
John Cizmadia, Capital City Roofing Supply, Inc. - Vice President of Sales
Blackbird’s circumstances were anything but normal during our recent move. However, Providence made the process simple and easy for us. They provided us with a course of action and led us through the process so that at the end of the day we ended up with a great location on terms that were most beneficial to our company.
John Cornelius, Blackbird Holdings, Inc. - Chief Technology Officer
Providence proved to be the key to our success in completing a complex and challenging 1031 real estate exchange transaction. Finding the right buyer for our relinquished property was a priority. Providence’s value proved critical in analyzing and advising on multiple offers ensuring that we secured a buyer, both fully capable of executing the transaction and willing to provide the flexibility needed to complete a time sensitive 1031 exchange. Our relinquished property carried the added burden of environmental concerns, mandating extended and trying tests that stressed all parties involved. Providence was professional and fair in guiding us through the intricacies and risks associated with complex purchase contracts and the extended phase environmental testing that was required. Regarding our new property, Providence provided their vast market knowledge and countless hours in locating and securing a strong investment property that is expected to provide higher than average returns for years to come. They provided professional, accurate, courteous service while charging reasonable fees. By nature, our transaction has been lengthy and complex. With the professional assistance of Providence, it now carries another label – Successful.
Chris Porter, Theta Systems - President
If anyone is looking for a knowledgeable, professional, honest, responsive and hard-working brokerage source, you should call these guys today. Providence Commercial delivers great results. After our 4000sf building in Midtown virtually sat for 6 months without getting any traffic or attention, we decided to switch gears and go with a new group. We never looked back. They first took the time to really listen to what we needed and then came up with a clear plan. They found a perfect tenant for the space on the exact length of term we needed. And when we’re ready to then sell the property, they will be the ones who I hire to then find our buyer.
