Within two days of the posting, Phil was conducting walk-throughs and by the third day he had an offer that was very close to our asking price. We had a deal with the buyer in 5 days. Phil Bird stayed on top of this, working with the appraiser to achieve an informed appraisal, keeping us regularly informed about the progress of the transaction, and dealing professionally with curve-balls thrown by others.

Quandel Contruction Group, Inc.

With all the hustle and bustle around getting the deal done for our new space, I never had an opportunity to formally thank you for your help in leading us through the process. We checked out a lot of potential spaces, while balancing goals between our local team and corporate leadership. Our desire for flex space definitely limited our options, but at the end of the day I think we found the right space. - Drew Vennemeyer, President

Stratos Wealth Partners

We were working on an expansion office in Powell, Ohio and met Andy through a listing that we had an interest. Unfortunately the space was taken before we could proceed to the next step, but Andy and his team found us another location in the same market that fit our needs. He also was very responsive and involved on our behalf with the lease terms and helped to keep all parties on task. We would most definitely use Andy and his team in the future. - Chris Walling, Managing Partner, Stratos Wealth Partners

Walton + Brown LLP

Our firm worked with NAI Ohio Equities to help look for space for our growing law practice. From start to finish, we were very pleased with our results.

We love our new office space and are appreciative of the assistance provided by NAI Ohio Equities. - Chanda Brown & Sean Walton, Walton + Brown LLP

Blaugrund Kessler Meyers & Postalakis

In the beginning of 2016, our law firm began touring the Columbus/Worthington office market on our own. We met Andy when he was the leasing agent at Northwoods II, and despite some negative comments we heard from other tenants in the builidng at that time, Andy made us feel comfortable and confident a deal could be made given the lease up plan that was in place from Wells Fargo. Unfortunately, Wells Fargo decided to put the property up for auction, and we had to explore other opportunities. At that point, we had several discussions with Andy, and our firm retained Andy as our tenant representative because he was honest with us throughout the entire Northwoods II process and he proved to be an expert in understanding the Columbus office market and what it takes for a tenant to make an informed decision. Ultimately, Andy helped us successfully negotiate a long term renewal at our current office building that will serve our needs for the next decade. Our firm would highly recommend his services to any tenant or landlord. - S. Scott Haynes, David S. Kessler, Stephen P. Postalakis

As a first time Landlord, I decided to hire the Office Brokerage Group at NAI Ohio Equities upon having limited success with another firm.

After a thorough marketing campaign, together we were able to identify two tenants that leased 100% of my building. I would recommend Andy and Matt to any Landlord who wants a broker to provide quality service and deliver on what they say they will do. - Steve Casciani, Powell, Ohio

"Andy is the kind of go getter that I was looking for several years ago when I was looking for new space or to renew my existing space. After his persistent marketing campaign to me and after not hearing from my two previous brokers who had helped renew my lease when I was close to my term ending, I decided to give Andy an opportunity. He was tremendous!! Professional, Creative, On Time and Communicative throughout my whole process….. He showed me countless spaces, before we decided to move up one floor in my existing building. Most impressive is that he still keeps in contact with me every month! He is a true professional and a man of his word.
