Client Testimonials

Brian Gebhardt

I’m writing to express my profound thanks to Bentley and his team. I am new to the commercial reaI estate market and Bentley worked tirelessly on my behalf. From the start he instilled his knowledge and made me feel comfortable entering a new investment space. Having some experience in the residential market, and past experiences with brokers more interested in closing a deal vs. closing the right deal, I was skeptical at first. However, Bentley has a long term outlook and looking to grow a partnership. Ultimately we walked away from the first few deals thanks in large part to Bentley’s due diligence. I’m convinced a less savvy broker would have missed some of the nuances and shortfalls of those prior deals. In the end we secured a property that checked all the boxes and set us up for future opportunity and growth.

I hold Bentley and his team in high regard for their professionalism, diligence, and real estate expertise. They worked tirelessly to help me find my 1031 exchange up leg property, conducting thorough investigations of five potential opportunities across three different markets. Additionally, they took the time to explain their detailed market research, financial underwriting, and the pros and cons of each investment.

I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking assistance in commercial real estate.

Brian Tucker

Bentley and his team did a great job in helping us sell an industrial investment property that we had in Long Beach. I was a bit hesitant to list it with them at first, because they were not local to the area, but they had a track record of successful closings for industrial investment properties, and I am glad that I had faith in them and their process.

Bentley was always very responsive and did a good job of communicating with all parties. Bentley displayed a top-notch marketing skillset, a positive attitude and an unrelenting work ethic that led to a successful close in a challenging market.

I would highly recommend Bentley to anyone thinking of purchasing or selling industrial property.

Gary Cerveny

Bentley was and continues to be an incredible real estate advisor for me. He presented me a creative, and well thought out solution that allows me to:

- Relocate my business
- Get maximum pricing for my old property
- Make more money via 1031 exchange with the excess sale proceeds

He worked relentlessly with local city governments to find me the perfect business property, negotiated a great deal, and executed on a smooth closing process. I look forward to doing more business with Bentley and his team.

Clint Sallee

I had a great experience working with Bentley on the acquisition of a multi-tenant industrial property that will serve as a new home to my business, as well as a strategic investment property. He was reliable, professional, knowledgeable, and an all-around pleasure to work with.

Marc Herman

As a long-time real estate investor, I have dealt with a number of different real estate professionals and Bentley is right up there with the best. His market knowledge, resourcefulness, and attentiveness made me very comfortable with the transaction. I look forward to working with Bentley and his team again and would highly recommend them.

Mark Poole

Bentley helped me realize and execute on a more profitable investment strategy that also helped me reduce the management headache from my old multi-tenant industrial building.

He and his team were on it 100% of the time. From the initial strategy regarding the property we sold, to selling that property for an amazing price, to closing on a great 1031 exchange up-leg property, Bentley did not miss a single beat.

Larry Wessel

Bentley did an incredible job in helping me sell my multi-tenant industrial portfolio in Burbank. It was a long and complex transaction with environmental issues, and he was there to help every step of the way.
I am very glad that I went with an industrial real estate specialist with knowledge and experience in this arena.

Philip & Linda Heckendorf

Jeffrey and Bentley helped us lease out our 17,500 square foot industrial property in Oxnard. We were very pleased with the team's organization, communication and execution and will surely be using them again.
