Finding office and warehouse space in Fenton - a testimonial

Another satisfied client submitted this testimonial about Hilliker brokers Hal Ball and Will Meehan! Great work from a great team.

When my Landlord of fifteen years informed me that he would not be able to renew my lease, I knew it was finally time to step up and buy a building. Additionally, I had invested in several farm properties and felt it was a good time to sell those to help with the new building purchase.

My Landlord recommended that I work with Hal Ball and Will Meehan at Hilliker Corporation as they had done some consulting for him and he felt they had professional expertise and a good knowledge of the market.

I followed his suggestions and am glad I did.

The market was very tight so finding many good building options was difficult. Will and Hal stayed on it and informed me immediately when properties came on the market and were also aware of several “off market” options. Ironically I then heard through the grapevine of a property possibly coming up for sale, and I asked Will and Hal to help with the negotiation and sale process. We worked as a team and negotiated such a good deal that the Tenant with a first right of refusal stepped up and bought the building!

Undaunted, Will and Hal dug back in and found another property which was larger than I required but had good tenants in place to help pay the mortgage. We negotiated a good deal and I was also then able to roll the proceeds from my farm parcel sale into the new property as a 1031 exchange. The entire process was more extensive and time consuming than I first imagined but I was happy to have my real estate professionals by my side.

We moved in last week and to my surprise a vase of flowers arrived shortly thereafter from Hilliker to welcome us to our new offices.

I would strongly recommend contacting Hal Ball and/or Will Meehan  should you need to relocate or purchase a building.

Increasing Investment Value - a Testimonial

Hal C. BallA successful client sent in this letter describing Hilliker Senior Vice President, Principal, and all-around great guy Hal Ball. It takes time and energy to send positive feedback, and we appreciate that Mr. Anderson did so!

I am writing to recommend the services of Hal Ball at Hilliker Corporation. While I grew up in Pacific MO, I moved away in the 1960’s. About the same time my father Ralph Anderson built post offices in Pacific and House Springs Missouri. When he passed in 1986 my brother and I inherited these properties and have owned them since.

Last year my brother’s health declined and we decided to sell the buildings. A local business friend who was also affiliated with the SIOR top commercial realtor network recommended we work with Hal. Once I spoke with Hal I knew I had the right guy. Polite and attentive Hal listened to our goals and promptly laid out a plan for success. Rather than a quick cheap sale, Hal worked with the USPS to extend the term of both leases. This increased the value of the properties and Hal was able to sell quickly thereafter to a qualified buyer for a great price.

Hal and Hilliker Corporation have our highest recommendations.
