What People Are Saying
"We had two office properties, one for lease and one for sale. Marty worked quickly to get renters into the building through marketing and site visits and had the property leased with little effort on our part. Our sale property was more complex with multiple challenges, including environmental issues, vapor testing, working with subcontractors, and a difficult buyer. He is able to deal with complicated properties and knows how to get to the end game for everyone involved. Premier offered a network of quality professionals that we utilized, and Marty helped us work through every phase until the property's sale was finalized. I don't think we would have gotten the deal done without the expertise and tenacity. I highly recommend Premier Commercial Properties."

"After owning and running a successful liquor store business in Big Lake, MN for 12 years, we were moving on to a new life endeavor in a new city. We needed to sell our retail property, but didn't know where to start except that we needed a real estate broker. Through a recommendation from CMDC, our small business loan provider, we contacted Marty Fisher and Premier Commercial Properties.
At the first communication, Marty was professional, easy to talk to, and helped us understand what we could expect. Throughout the entire process, from initial steps to marketing the property and negotiations to the purchase agreement and sale, Marty was always available and responded quickly to our questions and requests. He kept us in the loop about the status and provided realistic expectations. Because of the uniqueness of the property and outer city location, we knew we may have a smaller pool of interested buyers who would appreciate the property. Marty continuously worked on our behalf with our needs in mind. If there were hangups or potential issues with marketing the property or with buyer requests, he was able to address and execute quickly.
The buyer used a residential real estate agent to help with their purchase and because of the agent's expertise in residential vs commercial closings, Marty assisted with specific documents that were needed which helped expedite and streamline the process for both sides. His years of experience and expertise in all types of properties was evident and without bravado. He was very easy to work with and flexible in order to help us get the property sold."
- V. Westgaard, Owner/Seller Retail Liquor Store in Big Lake, MN
"I've worked with a lot of realtors and business people over the years and Marty goes way above and beyond what others have done or what was even expected! Marty was on top of everything. He is proactive and completely customer service oriented. His knowledge of commercial real estate and the ability to get all of the components done that are needed is exceptional. He took the initiative to set up meetings with the City to get approval for the building; identified and presented a variety of sites that fit my needs; did a lot of the homework that would have typically fallen on my shoulders - all the while communicating with me at all times of the day and night, weekday and weekend. He answered all of my questions with genuine care and connected me with experts that I needed.
It was an extremely fast process from my initial contact with Marty, site search, property visits, review and recommendation of properties to closing on the unique East Bethel property that we purchased for our business. We had to spend a month with City planning and zoning meetings to get City approval on building plans, which Marty assisted the entire way including water run-off and septic system issues. He jumped through hoops and even gained maximum time to get a 1031 exchange which Marty also helped facilitate. He has impeccable follow-through, follow-up, and communication acumen. Everything that needed to be done, Marty knew how to do it and got it done for us.
I highly recommend Marty if you're in the market to buy or sell property."
- Skip Torgerson, Torgersons
“Marty had the lot sold within 2 weeks of marketing the property! I contacted Marty Fisher through a connection at CMDC Business Loans to sell a raw land lot that was part of an original property purchase I made for my own business in East Bethel, MN. It was a unique lot totaling 3.5 acres with .5 acres buildable - It fit the buyer's needs and the timing was good. Marty was very responsive and communicated often through emails and phone calls. It was an easy process.“

"Marty made it very easy through great communication and transparency at all times while explaining everything in detail. He helped us navigate the logistics of not only purchasing the building, but was instrumental in the site searches, environmental requirements which he has a deep understanding, financing, closing, and even with recommendations for quality contractors and vendors - he is very well connected.”

"Marty is more than just a realtor - not all realtors are as savvy on environmental issues, challenges, and what is involved in the process. He is an advocate on behalf of the owner and seller while facilitating the entire transaction with a true understanding of everything involved in commercial real estate."
- W. Carlson | Carlson McCain
"It was important to us that we felt trust in the realtor and Marty came across very straightforward. He walked us through the process and explained everything upfront even potential issues to ensure we had realistic expectations.

“Marty has a great reputation in the area. With our property, he has been completely involved through the entire process. He made exceptional recommendations that have proven invaluable. He does all of the work, keeps us informed, and communicates without coming across as sales-oriented. We see a cost savings by handling the lease through Premier Commercial Property. My hat is off to Marty. I highly recommend him based on the efforts. He is a very personable guy and genuinely looks out for both sides.”
- M. Cook | Anoka West Pet Hospital
"We worked with Marty Fisher for the sale of our office condo in St. Paul after being referred to him by a neighboring tenant. We were extremely impressed with Marty's professionalism and deep knowledge of commercial real estate from the ins and outs of the entire transaction process to the legal issues that can arise. We have great appreciation for his expertise and knowledge. In addition, we had to overcome some challenges with the management company of our property - Marty worked side-by-side with us to resolve the issues and potential roadblocks that could have diverted the timely sale of our property. We would highly recommend Marty to anyone who is looking for a commercial real estate broker."

"Please allow me to commend you on your entire handling of the sale of our property in Maple Grove. As you know, I have had a number of unpleasant dealings with real-estate transactions in the past. Your knowledge, persistence, honesty, integrity and fair play have made the entire complex procedure of transferring property a more pleasant experience! On behalf of the entire staff at Sharp & Associates, LLC, we wish to extend our thanks and appreciation for your services."
- D. Sharp | Sharp & Associates
"I couldn't have made it through the sale & purchase of our buildings if it wasn't for Marty. We "thought" our sale was going to take forever so we put that on the market before finding a new location. Our building sold within days of putting it on the market because Marty made some inquiries. Marty then helped us find the best deal out there in a short amount of time that will allow our company to grow! He helped me with every question, was prompt, extremely knowledgeable, very professional, and was excited for to get the new space to grow! On top of all that, Marty is just a down to earth great guy! I highly recommend Marty and will definitely use him the future if he will still take on my headaches!!!"
- J. Frey | Herbalife Wellness Coach & Independent Wine Consultant
"Marty helped narrow down the best sites with a comprehensive understanding of what I needed. He explained the drawbacks; problem solved and made it happen. After we found the perfect site that was the size we wanted in the price range we needed and in the ideal location, Marty negotiated with the land sellers to do a contract for deed and created financing solutions with a structure that makes it possible for small businesses to get started or continue to grow. You helped develop a creative financing solution, worked with the City of Ham Lake, DNR, watershed district, builder and engineers to coordinate efforts and create solutions to simplify the process, which saved us all time and ultimately saved me money. You provided a site search that discovered the perfect location, site size, and price that fit our budget."

"I have been working with Marty for over a year now on several properties. He has been instrumental in getting my business into a larger building. Our new building is perfect for us! We also just signed a purchase agreement for the sale of another building! Thanks again Marty!!!!"
- B. Northfield | All Seasons Garage Door Company
Michael and I are very grateful we met Marty. It was a pleasure to have him on our side during such an important business decision of purchasing our first building and moving our business to a new location. Marty was always available and made it very obvious we were important to him. We had a unique building desire due to our large equipment; that limited our options. I was able to voice any concern and he always looked into it and always responded immediately. From start to finish, we knew Marty was on our side to make sure we were taken care of, and he was ALWAYS looking out for our best interest. He made sure all the proper steps were taken and that paperwork was correct. We will never be able to thank him enough for all that he did for us.

I have worked with Marty Fisher over the last several months. As a representative broker for the buyer, he initiated a sale of my property to one of his commercial clients. After the first discussion, I decided to sell. I am not a big fan of real estate agents and have had some bad experiences in my past. Under these circumstances it would normally be highly unlikely for me to give a recommendation for any real estate agent. However, throughout the process, even though Marty did not represent me, the seller, he was very professional, trustworthy, prompt and kind with an end goal of making the sale meet the needs of his buyer as well as mine. If there were any gray areas of concern, Marty provided a solution that was acceptable to both parties. I highly recommend Marty Fisher to represent a real estate transaction/sale on anyone’s behalf.

Marty Fisher is the "Go To" person for commerical real estate in Anoka County. I have worked with several different commerical real estate agents and companies over the past decade but Marty has produced results whether we're purchasing, leasing, or selling. He is no doubt the best resource in the area.
—M. Zigler | Zigler & Associates
I have observed Marty in various capacities and I am constantly impressed by his quiet competence and sunny demeanor. I would highly recommend Mr. Fisher to handle any commercial or residential real estate transaction. He has also given a significant amount of volunteer time to benefit charities and community improvement efforts.
