Peter Follesé had had his eyes on a prime office condo in Forest Lake for three years. It had everything he wanted:
frontage to Forest Lake’s major thoroughfares and ample space for his growing team. While the property had been on the market for several years, Mr. Follesé was not quite ready to pull the trigger.
Then, his team expanded rapidly. The property was available, and the time was right. All Mr. Follesé needed was the right commercial broker. That’s when he called Bradee Thompson of Premier Commercial Properties.
A Smooth Transaction on a Dream Office Condo
Though the property had been on the market for a number of years, the selling broker was firm on the asking price. Then, Bradee learned that if the office condo did not sell, it would eventually go to auction, where the broker had no control over the price. In the end, Bradee convinced the seller that coming down on price would be better than rolling the dice at auction. He secured the sale for Mr. Follesé for $110,000 under asking.
Since Mr. Follesé made a cash offer, he didn’t have to wait for a bank’s approval or financing to go through. He closed on the property within 30 days of making his offer. His team is already enjoying the extra space in Forest Lake’s prime office location.
“Working with Bradee Was Great”
Mr. Follesé was impressed with Bradee’s responsiveness as well as his negotiating skills. Bradee answered every call, text, or email promptly and was skilled in dealing with a broker who played hardball. “Working with Bradee was great,” he explained. “I 100-percent recommend Bradee to others and have already referred him to some of my business clients.”
