WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

The following are excerpts from written recommendations from some of Cascade Commercial Real Estate’s Clients.

“Todd has demonstrated an ability to identify buildings and land that be of interest to us and seems to have an excellent handle on the market and what is available. Todd was instrumental in locating a property and negotiating a deal on our behalf and he helped with issues such as city entitlements and city programs that be of assistance to us in the moving process. I would not hesitate to recommend Todd. He is honest and diligent and available when needed and he follows through with tasks in a timely manner.“

-Stuart Keller
Vice President of Real Estate/Facilities-Keller Supply

Keller Supply is a 60 year Seattle based company that has over 50 branches in 8 states. With over $200 million in sales, Keller is a preeminent distributor of a wide array of plumbing, spa and HVAC products throughout the Western United States. Todd and Cascade Commercial have assisted Keller with several property assignments in the Portland market, most recently with a strategic purchase of a 45,000 sf distribution facility for their commercial division.

“We were really in a pinch and Todd was extremely helpful to us. Todd came with many leads for us, and he spent quite a bit of his time finding us a new lease. Todd did find our new location and we are very happy in our new home and with our new landlords. Todd is a very diligent, and honorable person and we would happily recommend his services to anyone.”

-Heather Havens
General Manager, Cocentrates Inc.

Concentrates has been distributing a variety of organic and natural feeds, fertilizers and supplies for farms, livestock owners and gardeners since 1938. With their present location in Portland being sold, they need to find a improved location…fast. Todd and Cascade Commercial worked closely with Concentrates to survey the market and find the right location that encompassed 35,000 sf of warehouse, outside storage and a flexible landlord that worked with Concentrates to make their move fast and easy.

“Todd not only helped us with a complicated and competitive negotiation but with gathering data during our due diligence period prior to closing. Unlike others in the industry, Todd will tell you if a specific property or opportunity is a good value or not and uncover possible issues even if it means losing a sale or two. If you are considering working with a professional that knows the market and is very dependable during and after the transaction, I would contact Todd DeNeffe for any of your commercial real estate needs”.

-David Richenstein

“The combination of tenacity, salesmanship, analytical abilities, and good communication skills found in Todd DeNeffe is truly unique and I confidently recommend Cascade Commercial and Todd to others selling and acquiring property.”

“I accomplished two significant multi-million dollar transactions with Todd DeNeffe. We had to work through many issues in a quick changing marketplace to get these transactions done. Todd showed an uncommon amount of knowledge, patience and follow-through. I would recommend Todd whole-heartedly as a very capable and success oriented real estate professional”

-Al Solheim
“Father of the Pearl” and one of Portland’s most successful developers.

“I met Todd almost 15 years ago and he told me that he would keep in touch and supply me with space options and market information. He made sure I knew all the appropriate opportunties even though the timing was not quite right yet. He visited me, kept in touch and always made sure I was up to date on the market and then it happened! We finally needed more and better organized space and Todd found us the perfect building and because of his immediate response with the owners they turned away several lucrative purchase offers and we started negotiations because they felt they had a good long term lease in Daltile. He then helped us negotiate a very good long term lease. He never gave up on Daltile. Even when it seemed like we didn’t have a lot of interest, he kept up his relentless search for something we couldn’t say no to. Daltile has over 240 locations and several of the corporate folks that have visited our Portland facility have told me that this is the best building and location in our entire company. I am very proud of that and Todd made that possible”

-Guy Boston
Portland Manager of Dal-Tile Corporation
Dal-Tile is the largest tile company in the world.

“I have found Todd to be an honest, knowledgeable and diligent industrial real estate broker. He is a person that has an excellent grasp of the Portland industrial real estate market. He has provided me with excellent information, consultation and marketing expertise, so as to maximize the potential of our real estate holdings. We work with many brokers and found Todd to be one of the most educated and success oriented gentlemen working in the market today.”

-Yoshio Kurosaki
Summit Properties Inc.

“Todd does his homework and is very good at staying at ground level. Todd is very patient yet also diligent, which is important in working with challenging parties (including public agencies) and in the current down economy. As an example, I was involved with a family that owned a large industrial site in Northeast Portland. They had entertained numerous offers and projects on their property over a period of 10 years. Subsequently, Todd got involved and within a relatively short period had struck a deal between a developer and the family that resulted in a the construction of large distribution facility for Federal Express Corporation. I would strongly recomment Todd DeNeffe. He would be a great choice for landlords, tenants, buyers and sellers of commercial and industrial real estate in the Portland metropolitan area”
