Paul Ross

Working with Aaron was a really smooth experience. He was able to understand our needs and timeline and find something fairly quickly within our budget. Even after helping me secure the office lease, he's been tremendously helpful in providing resources as well as answering any questions related to the lease.

Gil Glass

Aaron has been a great help to our organization in scoping and delivering on our search for new office space. Aaron has always exhibited outstanding professionalism and attitude. It has been reassuring having Aaron looking out for our best interest in what can be a challenging process for the uninitiated.

Rob Wright

I worked with Aaron over a period of about one year as we searched for new office space in Redmond, WA. What made our search unique is that our process started just before COVID and as events began to play out we needed to consider macro events and adjust our plan, and schedule accordingly. Aaron was a true professional and led us through the process during this unique time, and ultimately helped us to land an ideal outcome. He was professional, diligent, and responsive throughout. Aaron gets our highest recommendation.

Carolyn Harvey

I recently worked with Aaron to explore new office space for my company. He impressed me early on with his expertise and thoroughness. Aaron brought so much knowledge to our discussions and took the time to explore our needs, both immediate and future to make the right recommendations. We started working together in late 2019 and when the pandemic hit a few months later, Aaron was extremely flexible and patient as our needs and the work environment changed fast and often. He helped us land where we needed to be with confidence. I would absolutely work with Aaron again and recommend him for anyone in need of professional, top-notch support.

Dave Rumpf

Aaron Kraft has helped us negotiate leases, and represented us on the sale of our Bellevue office building. He is calm, knowledgeable, and attentive to detail. He truly knew the market and sold our building quickly for a premium price. He is a pleasure to work with and we recommend him, without reservation.

Bellevue Early Education Center

Aaron proved himself a true asset in the sale of our commercial property, located in Bellevue, WA last Fall of 2022.

His specialized market understanding for properties that cater to a childcare center was an invaluable asset to us. Prior to signing a contract, he had identified possible buyers and had been quickly publicizing our property to a larger audience, without delay. As we had not yet revealed our intention to our employees and customers, Aaron made sure to be discreet and offered private tours at hours that wouldn’t interfere with business. As soon as we gave the go-ahead, he heavily promoted the property, generating more interest than expected. We received multiple offers that surpassed our expectations, followed by a second round of bidding that further increased the value of the property. The escrow process was fast, and the agreed-upon purchase price was secured, allowing us to close in the estimated timeframe with no difficulties. In the end, we were more than satisfied with the outcome of our difficult decision to sell. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Aaron for his part in this success.

Michael J. Zuccarini

The purpose of this letter is to recognize and recommend the outstanding service, professionalism, and most importantly, the expertise of Aaron Kraft as a commercial real estate professional.

We started to work with Mr. Kraft about two years ago regarding the potential sale of our building in downtown Bellevue. Due to our circumstances with our current tenants, we were particularly anxious to list the property on the open market, thinking that they would leave.

In our general discussions with Aaron, we determined what sort of buyer we should focus on. From there, he did the all-important legwork in presenting it to several interested buyers eventually finding a match that met our qualifications. Therefore, he was able to help us pair the highest use value with the right buyer without endangering our cash flow.

After finding the right buyer, Mr. Kraft also guided us through the closing process, making it as easy as any transaction of this size could be. His willingness to work with us, even at odd hours, with inspectors, architects, and the future owners, to minimize any distraction to our operations was tantamount to maximizing value for us.

Aaron has earned my highest recommendation as a Realtor, and as a result, I would highly recommend him to those working on commercial real estate in the King County area.

It is my sincere pleasure to recommend Aaron Kraft as a broker for anyone looking to find new tenants for their building/s. When we signed up to work with Aaron, our building in Redmond had been half full for many years. Within the span of 8 months he was able to get it fully leased up.

We found Aaron to be a highly attentive and professional in his communications with us and potential tenants. He took the time early on to meet with us on numerous occasions to determine competitive rates for our building type and spaces that were available within the context of the marketplace. He provided monthly marketing reports and was great about communicating where he was at in the process with each of the potential tenants he was working with. He always returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality. Aaron was honest with us and was great to work with.

We are pleased to recommend Aaron to anyone looking to tenant buildings. He is hands down the best in the business in our opinion.

Stren Lea

His thoughtful and detailed approach to lease negotiations has allowed us to push rents and avoid vacancies while making transactions smooth for all parties.

Pin Hsiao

Aaron Kraft has been an excellent real estate broker for me. He is honest, dependable and effective in representing me on selling, buying and leasing transactions

Christine Johnson

listed three challenging commercial condos with Aaron and his team in 2016. Although it was no easy task finding buyers, Aaron never gave up. His perseverance and attention made all the difference in securing buyers for each of these units.

Daniel Todd

We began working with Aaron in 2015 when our 30 employee company was packed into a 1,000 SF office in Kirkland. Our biggest challenge was that we were projecting significant growth over the next twelve months, but because of the stage of our company at the time, our immediate need to expand, and the uncertainty of what our headcount would be at in three to five years, our options were limited. Aaron was able to identify two properties that were agreeable to flexible lease terms and that were reflective of the type of environment that we wanted to work in. He was able to generate leverage and negotiate favorable business and lease terms. Within 36 days of meeting him, we were in our new 13,000 SF office.

Russell Williams

Our company, Holospark, was formed from a studio that had just closed down. Consequently,we had a limited time to get operational and staff on payroll before we lost them to other companies. We found one promising space in a subpar location, but when that fell through, we were left in a lurch. We had scoured the listings ourselves, and had found very little and were growing increasingly worried.

We engaged Aaron to help us find the space. We talked to him about what our immediate needs were, and how we’d want a space that we could expand if necessary. With that in mind he went searching, and within three days had found a multitude of places that had not come up in our search, several which were reasonable, and one which was fantastic. He helped us through the negotiation, we got the lease, and shortly thereafter wound up expanding our space in the building.

We love our space, and we really appreciate Aaron finding it for us and helping us get in.

Loretta S. Story

Aaron was able to provide me with comparable spaces on the market, analyze the cost of moving versus renewing, and worked with the landlord to obtain the terms on my ultimate renewal. This was at no out-of-pocket cost to me. I would highly recommend working with Aaron, using his skills and resources.

Effie Bar-Caspi

In early 2016, our previous landlord approached us directly to negotiate a new lease in anticipation for the upcoming expiration of our sublease. They understood that we were a growing tenant that wanted a gradual escalation to market rates and so we negotiated a deal that worked well for both parties. We thought we had the requirement wrapped up, so there was no need for a backup plan. With three months left on the sublease and the deal close to being done, the terms of the lease materially changed, which left us searching for answers.

As a tax and accounting firm, we require a dense private office build out, which we knew would take costly improvements. We engaged Aaron’s services at this point and he delivered three properties that met our locational, operational, and timing needs.

He generated leverage with all three of the properties very quickly and negotiated a below market deal, which will set us up well long term.
