Another satisfied client submitted this testimonial about Hilliker broker Hal Ball! 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 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. 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 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, 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 should you need to relocate or purchase a building.
