Tenant Representation Testimonials

Cathy Ellickson CFSP
Chief Operating Officer at PRIDE Centric Resources, Inc.

Matt helped guide us through the complicated process of finding the right office space. Even though our business needs were changing and being redefined, Matt continued to patiently listen and find spaces that could work for us. Once we were able to clearly identify our needs, Matt found us a terrific below market well located sublease, saving us time and money along the way. Plus he orchestrated the more difficult 3 way sublease documentation process between the Landlord and Sublessor. We will use Matt again, and I highly recommend him for your tenant rep office broker.

Zane Schulte
Chief Executive Officer, The Heartland Group

“I am writing this letter of recognition for Matt Smith because of his professional, enthusiastic, efficient service he provided me over two separate transactions in 2015.  He has always conducted himself with the utmost integrity as well as being there throughout the process to explain in detail any question I may have.  I look forward to working with him again in the future.  It is a pleasure working with Matt whose personal ability and attention to detail was able to put everyone at ease.  Matt was always available to quickly respond to questions, whether in person, via phone, or e-mail not only from me but from my staff.”

Todd Narlinger
Owner, Madison and Company Properties

“Matt helped our team at Madison and Company so much to find a perfect new office for our Greenwood Village team as well as helping with our expansion in our Washington Park location. His ability to take the time to make sure we found the right location was critical and would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for office space.”

Eric Kenealy
Chairman, Novarus Capital Group

"Matt Smith helped our company find the perfect new office space for our needs.  The new office is great, and we are very happy with the terms of the lease.  Matt listened carefully to us, and showed us several office spaces that met our requirements.  He was invaluable in helping us to understand what we needed.  His analysis of the competing offers was very detailed.  I highly recommend Matt Smith for any business considering a new space.”

Jeani Ringkob
Controller, DASCO

“I had the pleasure of working with Matt Smith as the representative for our business, DASCO, Inc. He represented us as we searched for and secured a desirable office lease. I researched over 25 Professional Comm­ercial Real Estate Brokers, phone Interviewed 10 and then personally interviewed 3. I also spent considerable time researching referrals. When it came time to choose, Matt Smith was an easy front runner. Mr. Smith was professional and forthright at all times, always giving advice and information supported by sound facts and judgment. Early on we discussed the values of our company and our approach to finding and providing VALUE.

 

Matt Smith was a tremendous value and ideal for a company with high performance standards. Throughout the process he was always an impressive fighter for our interests. During the negotiating and build out design process he had invaluable information and was always proactive in the process so we stayed on track and could always be knowledgeable and prepared. Our search took many unforeseen turns and had several obstacles come up. Matt never lost focus and was steady and determined from start to finish.  We will not make any other commercial real estate move without Matt Smith and Vector Properties representing us.

Scott Keller
Regional Branch Manager, Peoples Home Equity

"We needed plug & play office space in a hurry to open an office in the Denver Tech Center area.  Matt quickly found several good alternatives that met our criteria and arranged a tour.  After his detailed analysis of the competitive proposals, we picked a building to pursue.  Unfortunately it went under lease with another tenant.  But Matt was prepared with great backups.  He guided us through complicated lease issues ultimately negotiating a great deal for us.  Matt responded quickly every step of the way in a professional and favorable manner.  And in a little over a month, we had a new home that exceeded our expectations.  We plan on using Matt again and highly recommend him to anyone seeking office space in Denver."

Vance J. Sanders
Chief Technology Officer/Corporate Controller, Equinox Fund Management

“I spoke with Matt just days before I intended to sign a renewal with our existing landlord. I gave Matt an impossible assignment. Find us a bigger, nicer suite in a more prestigious downtown tower with better terms than our renewal – and you have three days to impress me. Impress me he did! Two days later we toured a dozen solid downtown spaces, each more impressive than the previous and all at a better economics than our renewal lease and each meeting our stated requirements. Within a week we entered negotiations for a perfect suite in a highly desirable downtown tower. Matt represented out best interest during the negotiations in a professional and uncompromising manner with the highest degree of integrity. From start to finish, our impossible transaction took less than six weeks to complete. Matt provided invaluable counsel at each step throughout the search, negotiations, construction planning, inspection and move in process. I would highly recommend Matt, and his team, to other companies seeking professional commercial real estate representation.”

Tom Atchison
National Corporate Housing
As a tenant representative, you are peerless! Despite some curve balls thrown your way, you made it happen for us.  My staff is very excited about our new offices, and I wanted you to know how much I appreciate your professionalism and your advice on the local market.  When given the opportunity, I will recommend you and Vector Property Services.
Kirk Mielenz
Managing Director & COO, Revgen Partners

I have worked with Matt three times over the past 5 years.  Each time Matt has been a good advocate and successful at getting our deals done.  The last time I worked with Matt proved to be a very challenging situation, but Matt was tenacious in his support and drive to get us the best deal possible.”

David Meale
President, StarRez & StarNet Systems

“You and your team have been a close partner with StarRez since we opened our Denver office in 2006. As we have experienced significant growth, you helped find us suitable space, expand our current space, renew leases, and acquire space. Regardless of our size, you always make us feel like your most important customer. You know the market and the business, work extremely hard, and I would recommend you and Vector any day!”

John Best
CTO, Wescom Resources Group

"Matt was instrumental in helping us find our new Denver office. He helped us work through the lease and generally went above and beyond in every categoryto get us in to our new building."

Bill Singer
Leasing Director, CBL & Associates Properties

"Matt Smith with Vector Properties was a real pleasure working with.  We relocated our offices from Broomfield, CO to Centennial, CO.  Matt was very professional and diligent in helping secure a space as well as the lease which resulted in CBL & Associates Properties, Inc. executing Lease and moving forward with relocation. Matt was very instrumental in this effort.  I would strongly recommend Matt Smith whether it's a new deal or lease renewal.  He knows the Denver office market very well and has a total hands-on effort."

Alan Dillsaver
Previous SVP of Global Operations, Critigen

“One of the first priorities our company had after a recent spin out was to find an office location and set up to define the culture of the new company. Matt worked to clearly understand the objectives the CEO and senior management were looking for and then set out to meet those expectations. Through his vast network, he brought key resource people at the appropriate times to make the process as smooth and professional as possible with the end target beating expectations. I will look for opportunities to work with Matt in the future and believe that others who work with him will have their expectations exceeded just as I did.”

Gary R. White
White, Bear & Ankele, Attorneys At Law

“Matt Smith provided the most recent services without whom we would be floundering in a market with too many opportunities to narrow down in a meaningful manner.  Matt not only narrowed the field down based on our needs, but also helped us locate opportunities where we could take advantage of a ‘lessee's market’. Ultimately, we located brand new space in a mixed use development where the landlord had not fully developed a lease for a professional office user. Matt's experience in the office lease market helped us propose numerous changes to the lease to fit our needs and his negotiating skill on our behalf not only helped shorten a lengthy negotiation but produced a long term lease we are very satisfied with from a legal and economic standpoint. We highly recommend Matt and his team.”

Jamie Husarik
Business Manager, UBEE

“I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for the outstanding service you have provided to Ubee Interactive in our search for new office space.  This has truly been a long haul, but you have provided such phenomenal service that it is evident this process will be a success as long as we have your support.  It is truly a great feeling to know that we have someone of your caliber by our side every step of the way.  The expertise you demonstrate in your field is exceptional and the continuous follow up is invaluable.  Thank you for providing us with services that far surpass our expectations and will certainly result in a very successful move to our new office space. We sincerely appreciate all of your efforts and hard work.”

Julie M. Kjack
FACMPE / Administrator, Clear Creek Family Practice

“I have had the pleasure of working with Matt Smith, Vector Property Services, this year.  We outgrew our existing office and needed a larger space. Dr. Larson determined that we should not move more than two miles away as our existing patients would not want to drive much farther to continue using our services.  Matt arranged for us to see numerous sites that met with our requirements.  During the leasing process, he represented us extremely well, and I was impressed with his thoroughness and efforts on our behalf.  I have been leasing medical space for 30 years, and Matt is superior compared to all the agents I have worked with in the past.  The lease has been signed, and we will be moving in late October 2009.  When we started the process, we agreed upon a timeline for the steps to be accomplished, and everything is going as planned.  Matt has continued to check with me to see if the construction is to our satisfaction, and it is.  If you want to work with a true professional and get the job done on schedule, I suggest that you use Matt Smith.

David Leonardi, MD
Leonardi Executive Health Institute

“The space is working out great.  But what I recall most is your exceptional service and true concern that we got the best possible space at the best rate.  Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help your business as I am a huge fan.”

Larry Kincaid
CFO, American Sheep Industry Association

“Matt, Thank you for all your extra efforts in successfully negotiating our lease renewal.  I believe we ended with very fair lease terms and language that addressed specific concerns you and our attorney highlighted during the review process.  With this being my initial office lease, I appreciate your guidance in explaining the various terms within the lease agreement, especially the operating expense implications.  Also, your follow up was key to ensure both ASI and the Landlord stayed on track to ensure we executed the lease renewal in a timely manner, since we had a strong desire to complete the agreement with the existing Landlord rather than starting over with the new buyer.”

Greg Miner
President, Thorson Rocky Mountain

“I wanted to finally take a moment to say “thanks” for your outstanding service and assistance in helping us find our new office space.  We were likely not the biggest client on your list at the time, but that certainly was not obvious from the high level of service that we received.  Your professionalism, knowledge of the marketplace, and personal attention were all of tremendous benefit throughout the entire process.  I would highly recommend you and your firm to anyone needing commercial real estate services.  Thanks again and best of luck.”

Eugene A. (Tony) Naes, Jr.
Senior Vice President Finance and CFO, Adelphia Communications

“The Vector Property Team was instrumental in helping our company find the right location at the right price for our ongoing business.  At a time when property space was becoming more scarce and prices were increasing, we were able to work with Matt and his team to find a great location at a cost per square foot that was less than we were previously paying.  They were well prepared which made our site tour and selection process straightforward.  Vector's reputation with property managers and owners was helpful in getting our deal completed quickly and with the highest level of professionalism.”

Rich Sweeney
Chief Operating Officer, Dalit Freedom Network

“Matt, I want to thank you for being so instrumental in getting us into our new office space. Your experience in the Denver real estate market proved to be invaluable.  When it came time to negotiate the lease, I was completely at ease in allowing you to take the major role in this and getting a very favorable contract for our non-profit organization.  I can't say enough about your integrity and thoroughness.  You continually followed through on points that I would have missed completely.  Thanks for being the consummate real estate professional that you are! I would highly recommend Vector Property Services to anyone needing a great real estate team.”

Chris Colburn
Wachovia Securities (Wells Fargo Advisors)

“Just a quick note to thank you and your firm for the hard work you did in renegotiating our lease.  Your professional and market insight were greatly appreciated.  I look forward to working with you in the future.”

James W. Means
Citigroup

“Thanks for all your efforts in helping us find a new office location in the Greater Denver Area.  Although the time line was short and negotiations were tough, you really helped us pull this one off!

Barry A. Seldin
Principal, The Law Firm of Farrell & Seldin

“While our search was a long one, you never wavered from our goal and our efforts ultimately paid off.  I was most impressed by your attention to detail on the lease documents and your continued follow through on our behalf.  I always felt like you were on our side and your specific knowledge of the marketplace and all the players was very helpful.  I feel like we got the best deal available at the time as a result of your patience and guidance.  I would have no hesitation to refer you to a colleague and will do just that should the situation arise.  Thanks again for a job well done.”

David Afraimi
Principal, Promark Financial

“Matt Smith and Vector not only met our expectations; they exceeded them. Whether you are looking for your first lease or you are negotiating a 10,000 square foot building space, Matt S. and Vector let their actions do the talking. Matt is a results oriented professional who was not happy until the final detail was worked out. Thanks again Matt & Vector for looking out for best interests!”

Michael C. Barela
President, Cordillera Asset Management

“I am writing to thank you for helping us find an incredible space.  Even though our needs were uncertain and changing, you stuck with us, exploring all possible solutions over three years until finding the perfect solution.  Your expertise allowed us to negotiate great terms and a favorable Lease.  We love our space, and I would recommend your services to anyone needing professional brokerage assistance."

Mark Carlson
Charles Wilson Insurance Service

“I was in the process of buying this company as well as negotiating a new lease which created some starts and stops along the way.  Matt took these delays in stride, working with us for almost a year.  Matt identified all the reasonable locations and conducted professional tours. He then guided us through space planning and proposal process, carefully analyzing and helping us select our short list of buildings.  While we were convinced we would relocate due to the inadequacies of our space, we ended up renewing in a smaller modified version of our existing space and the space next door.  This clever solution enabled us to downsize to a more productive layout and obtain new finishes without living through new construction throughout our work space.  Plus Matt negotiated very favorable economic terms for us, significantly reducing our rate.  He also thoroughly reviewed the lease, improving many issues that we would never have considered.”

Bill Miller
Principal, Hamilton Miller

“I am writing this letter to show our appreciation to Matt Smith and Vector Property Services for the professional manner in which he and Vector assisted Hamilton Miller in acquiring new office space. Matt did a great job in bringing a variety of offices that met our criteria to our attention… Matt's key strength is in the proposal/counterproposal and lease negotiation phases of commercial real estate. It was evident that Matt has a great deal of experience in doing commercial real estate deals, as he was tougher and more meticulous than our own attorney. We will use Matt for any further commercial real estate needs that we might have in the Denver area and would highly recommend him to anyone considering looking for a commercial real estate agent.”

Ravi Swamy
Project Director, Regional Rail Partners

“I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your first-class service and yeoman’s work that you personally put in on behalf of Regional Rail Partners in our search for our project office. Faced with budget, schedule and logistical challenges, you ended up finding us the very best deal that we could possibly have hoped for. Your work in securing the space, from helping us with the pricing negotiations, the review of the lease agreements, working with the build-out contractor, and leading all the way up to the final move-in details is very much appreciated. Your integrity, professionalism and attention to detail throughout the process was a refreshing change from our past experiences.  My team and I thoroughly enjoyed working with you and I will certainly be calling on you for our future real estate needs. Please feel free to use me as a reference for yourself personally and/or for Vector Property Services. THANK YOU!"
