Testimonials and kind words from our clients.

Palm Beach Plaza

We worked with Vaaler Commercial Real Estate to help us buy a shopping center as part of a 1031 tax deferred exchange. Rich helped us identify target properties, negotiate the purchase, work with the lender, and was our advocate and guide all the way to closing. He continued to help us after the closing to set up the property management process, and leased the one vacant space, so we have stable cash flow and a great property. I would recommend him to any investor who wants to buy a commercial property.

My long term commercial lease for my dental office was expiring in a couple years, and I was facing the daunting task of renewing my lease in a way that would give me the security to know my lease would last as long as my business needed. Fortunately, I had Rich Vaaler in my corner to help guide me through the process. I don't know what I would have done without him. He met with me many times, getting an understanding of what I needed, and renegotiated my lease for exactly what I needed, and even managed to save me money! I can't recommend Rich Vaaler enough.

I have known and worked with Rich Vaaler, and Vaaler Commercial Real Estate, as a client of our insurance company for decades. When I decided to sell my office building, I listed it with Vaaler Commercial Real Estate. When I leased new office space for our firm, we worked with them again. In both cases, Rich & Nancy worked diligently, and professionally, with my best interests in mind, to achieve the best outcome for my company, and for me. I would highly recommend them to any professional who needs to sell or lease commercial property.

We were referred to the team at Vaaler because of their experience and the broad knowledge of the commercial real estate marketplace in Loudoun County. They worked tirelessly over several months to help us find our ideal office space. Their diligence, advice, and support were greatly appreciated and their reputation is well deserved.

Working with Vaaler exceeded all my expectations. With all the successes we have had over the first 3 years in business it was time to look for a new home for our office. After striking out with dozens of leases that wouldn’t work for us Nancy found a property that wasn’t even listed for sale and ensured a smooth transaction. It almost seems unbelievable that purchasing our first multi-unit commercial office building was just as simple, if not easier, than buying residential. I have an inclining that might be due to Nancy’s experience and professionalism.

When it came time for me to find a good team to help me find the best location, I am lucky that I found the Vaaler’s during my research. Both Rich and Nancy were professional and tentative. They met with me to understand exactly what I was looking for in terms of location, space, and price point. They were in communication with me constantly and when one location didn’t feel right, they were quick to find another until we found perfection. Not only are they both very great at their profession, they also became long time friends. I am so glad I found them. Anyone working with Vaaler Commercial Real Estate is in good hands.

Rich and Nancy helped tremendously in negotiating on our behalf with the property owner and were able to help us secure what would become our [business] home. Anyone considering engaging with a commercial real estate company would be hard-pressed to find a more professional, attentive, and hard-working group than Rich and his team.

Rich Vaaler has been involved in the buying and selling of several shopping centers for me. I have always found him to be hard-working, knowledgeable, with a network of contacts second to none. He has always conducted himself with the highest degree of integrity. I would highly recommend him.

The Vaaler group has been instrumental in all aspects of our company's commercial leasing activities including finding new tenants, lease renewals, and property management advice. It is clear that leasing our available space is more than just a "job", it is a personal mission that has had great outcomes for us!
