Negotiating Power — Optimal Results
We pride ourselves on our client relationships. Here is what a few of those clients have to say about working with Wasserman Commercial Real Estate:
"Wasserman Commercial did a fantastic job helping us with our relocation, from finding the right building, negotiating with the landlord, negotiating the lease, and our move. Their professionalism, persistence, integrity and results is excellent. No company should use anyone else."
President/Chief Executive Officer
“Robert and his team were very responsive to our real estate needs. He negotiated excellent terms and tenant improvements which gave us great value for the term of our lease. He was very knowledgeable about the state of the market which ultimately allowed us to negotiate an optimal transaction.”
A. James Artiano
Artiano & Associates
“Working with Robert Wasserman is a pleasure. He is a creative and market-savvy professional who delivers results. When we hired him to find us an office space to lease, he did a superb job at showing us all of our options. He even presented us with options that we did not know existed, such as a building that was for sale but not yet on the market. In the end, this building turned out to be a perfect fit for us and a superb investment after Robert negotiated an outstanding deal for us."
Richard J. Greene, Esq.

“Without question, working with Robert has been an absolute pleasure. Not only did he out perform expectations at each milestone (search, find, negotiate and deal), but he brought a level of professionalism and integrity to the relationship that I appreciated as he worked on our behalf. This coupled by his extensive market knowledge and history in enterprise-level commercial real estate, facilitated an extremely smooth lease negotiation that delivered more value than what we ever expected.”

"When it came time to move our agency, a friend referred us to Robert. Robert took the time to understand the needs of our organization. He was very respectful of our time and helped us focus on properties that fit our specifications perfectly. Robert then used his experience to guide us through the pros and cons of each space. After we decided on a building, Robert was extremely proactive and negotiated the best deal possible with tremendous landlord participation. We have validated our deal with other tenants and know that Robert served us extremely well. Robert was a pleasure to work with and we would have no hesitation to work with him again or to refer him to other companies."

“Robert, thank you so much for all of your hard work and effort in helping us secure this lease extension. We did good...and you were spot on throughout the process in terms of your knowledge of the process and outcome. Nice job!! Hope there will be more deals to work on together as we focus now on growing Global Business Centers.”

“Robert found us ideal space in a tight real estate market that fit our needs perfectly. He started representing us when we were a relatively new company. We then moved into 82,000 square feet where Robert secured a lease with multiple options to expand and extend. We now occupy approximately 140,000 square feet at a rate significantly below current market rates. Robert’s ability to tailor our needs and to negotiate a tremendous real estate lease on our behalf is just amazing. Not sure how you pulled it all off Robert, but we think the world of you!”
Executive Vice President

“Over the years, our various business interests have owned, occupied, and utilized several million square feet of commercial real estate. About 10 years ago, after a period of inactivity, we found that we needed some assistance with our real estate. We were introduced to Robert and shortly thereafter, he became our “go-to” real estate professional. Not only does he do a superb job in gathering all the relevant and necessary facts, he also takes the hype, hustle, and anxiety out of the real estate decision-making process. He is a consummate professional and represents us to our ultimate advantage. And, as welcome bonus, he is a super human being as well.”
Steven J. Manning
“We hired Robert to find our firm a new showroom in downtown Los Angeles. We knew we needed a broker that would be instrumental in not only finding us the ideal space for our business, but someone who would negotiate the best deal possible for us. Robert delivered on all levels. His knowledge of the downtown market, available inventory, and landlords really made our selection process much easier. The deal he negotiated for us was amazing and it kept our out-of-pocket expenses to a minimum.”

Robert is trustworthy, personable, respectful and diplomatic. Not only does he excel in solving standard leasing issues, but is equally capable with complex transactions. Additionally, Robert places a great deal of importance in establishing and maintaining long-term relationships.
