Client Testimonials

“We listed a number of retail properties with several different brokers in 2009. We were pleased with the effort by the French Retail Team, who obtained 9 offers on a challenging asset during a difficult time in the market.

Through their willingness to cooperate with the brokerage network, Joe French and his team were able to successfully complete the transaction”.

“The Accelerated Marketing Approach you orchestrated from the very beginning was clearly well planned and created for the maximum competition for the property. The results were more admirable, as you generated over 240 inquiries from 23 states and Canada, 22 Broker Registrations, 31 Property Information Packages sold, 6 Bidders from 4 States and a final sale price of $5,090,000 representing $3,000,000 more than the established reserve/minimum.”

“We are extremely pleased with the results that your team was able to achieve given an extremely difficult real estate market and, most importantly, the fact that the anchor tenant was in bankruptcy.  We were a little concerned about your ability to market a property in North Carolina given your office location in New York.  Yet, you clearly demonstrated your ability not only to fully understand the property and the market, but also to launch a highly effective national marketing program that generated interest and offers from both local and national buyers.”

“Joe French and his team are very informative about prospective properties, and their experience in acting as advisors made us very comfortable with them. Their success in our partnership is related to their consistent marketing of each property, with “broker blasts” and focused direct calls.  We value our relationship with the French Retail Team and we look forward to continuing to do business with them.”

“Joe French has sold almost a dozen properties for my firm since 2002 so obviously we are happy with him. Joe consistently exposes our properties to a wide and diverse group of buyers. This generates more offers and leaves me comfortable knowing that no potential buyer has been excluded from the process.”

“When we previously listed my property with another national firm in a hot market, they were unable to obtain an offer acceptable to us. We then listed the property with Joe French and the French Retail Team. French not only successfully advised us through the closing of a complicated transaction, but he also achieved a sale price $1 million higher in a declining market.”

“Joe French’s unique marketing method produced a number of offers on our property, which increased the competition for the property creating a bidding environment. The end result was a price in excess of the asking price.”

Steve Fields

“Joe French and team successfully sold my center at the price we wanted when another broker had the listing for six months and was unable to produce any offers.”
