Client Testimonials

As a former owner of a 9000 sf multi-tenant building on Morehead St., I have utilized Providence Commercial for both their leasing and sales expertise. For many years they did a great job leasing my property: Analyzing market conditions, finding tenants and then negotiating fair and equitable deals. Nearing retirement, this past year I asked them to sell my building along with adjacent land that I also owned. They again did a great job determining a value of the building/property that accurately reflected a fair return for me while still creating interest/demand in the marketplace. The accuracy of their valuation was validated in the short time the property stayed on the market, the level of interest shown by potential buyers, the multiple offers we received, and (most importantly) the final sale price. Thank you guys!
Derek C. Williams, Benesch - Partner (retired)
Providence Commercial did a great job for us. We were interested in a property on West Morehead Street in the FreeMoreWest area. Providence first helped us purchase that property at the right price. Then after we added value to the property, they took it back out to market for us where we sold it for a really nice profit. The guys at Providence Commercial are very knowledgeable and hard-working.
Shane Seagle, Citisculpt - Partner
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
As first time commercial tenants, we knew we needed a broker who could walk us through details and challenges outside our comfort zone. Providence Commercial cleared the way for us to get to the right property quickly. They provided excellent representation every step of the way, from our initial searches to finalizing and executing the lease.
Miri Nadler, Ten Bloom Cakes- Owner
On the advice of our banker, we engaged Providence Commercial to help us purchase a property for our business. Before hiring Providence, we had been working with another broker without much satisfaction. Things changed once Providence went to work for us. The folks at Providence were very responsive and displayed excellent market knowledge. They listened and thought outside of the box for us. Providence introduced us to a property we would not have considered without their insights. Ultimately, we purchased a two building property with existing tenants but enough vacancy for our business to occupy. We now have a great investment and a home to grow our business.
Joel Davis, Chapman Company- President
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 Real Estate Advisors are consummate professionals and as such care deeply about their clients and how they are treated. They are very knowledgeable and experienced in commercial real estate. The Providence team helped our company scout, locate and close on our space in the perfect location matching our desired requests. Then the Providence Team helped us find the appropriate tenants and then executed multiple leases. They maintained constant vigilance during the purchasing, construction and leasing process. They attended all meetings and walked us through every step of the process. Providence Commercial are sterling professionals and we are very happy we chose them to work with our company.
Bailey Bartee, Vine & Branch Capital- Director
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
I couldn’t be happier with Providence Commercial’s performance on the sale of my commercial property in Elizabeth. They discussed alternatives at each step of the process and did an excellent job communicating the current status. Literally on the day of closing, a water leak from an adjacent property resulted in water damage and delayed in closing. They stayed engaged, provided constructive advice during the process and the property successfully closed 2 weeks later.
Jesse McDaniel, Investor (former owner of 400 Clarice Ave., #130)
I have worked with Providence Commercial for well over a dozen years. Over that period, they have kept my building in SouthEnd Charlotte leased and have provided me great ongoing strategic direction and market updates along the way. Wanting to take advantage of a strong market but not ready for the associated tax burden of a sale, they were able to find me a buyer and structure an owner-financed deal that met all my retirement goals. I strongly recommend Providence Commercial-- They’re highly knowledgeable, accessible and great negotiators.

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 helped us sell our property in Plaza-Midwood. The guys at Providence are innovative and honest. They are exact when it comes to the commercial real estate market in Charlotte. It was very important for our company to get the best deal with the least amount of time on market, and they delivered. At the first meet up, we told them exactly what we wanted. They took the time to sit with us and proceeded with the option that suited our company's needs. International Mechanical Services, LLC recommends Providence Commercial to everyone needing help in buying, selling or renting properties in and surrounding areas of Charlotte. We will be using Providence Commercial in our future endeavors.
Valdimir Mrvelj, International Mechanical Services, LLC - Partner
“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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
