TESTIMONIALS

 

Dear Jeff,

 I am writing with regards to my recent lease negotiation with Jeff Wolfe. I would like to recommend his services to anyone who is considering hiring him.

My wife and I were interested in selling the building our dental practice was in and relocating elsewhere in Mississauga. We knew we would need help to find a new space and negotiate a lease agreement.  We were then directed to Jeff Wolfe, a commercial real estate professional.

I found Jeff to be very detail-oriented, competent and perceptive as related to fulfilling our requirements.  Jeff was a good listener, followed through on promises he made and truly cared about what I wanted out of this transaction.  He helped us identify a few properties of interest, and finally we identified one that we liked very much. We were in a time crunch because we needed to be out of our current building by a certain date. Jeff and his team worked quickly to negotiate the terms of the deal, and review and negotiate the lease agreement for the space.
We are very happy with the building and with the results achieved. 

We recommend the services of Jeff Wolfe to anyone considering hiring him.

Sincerely,
Dr. Navin Ratra & Vandana Ratra 

I am very happy to offer my thoughts on the services provided by Jeff Wolfe with High Point Realty. As a property manager of an office building at Bayview & Sheppard that had just been granted a re-zoning classification, I was having difficulty renting out office space.   We reached 28% vacancy and I knew I needed some help.
I found Jeff online and after reading some of his testimonials, I contacted him. We’ve had a great relationship ever since. He’s been able to successfully lease out almost every available office in a short amount of time.
Easy to deal with, fast turn around and has a knack for finding just the right tenant for your building.  I would recommend his services to anyone who is having difficulty finding suitable tenants, or for those who just don’t have the time it requires to find, qualify and secure good tenants.

I was introduced to Jeff several years ago through a mutual contact and have been very satisfied with the results of his hard work.  He has been successful leasing many vacant units at various properties within my portfolio.  He is reliable, very knowledgeable and is a very effective deal maker.
Recently, Jeff has leased 4 vacant units for me at Jane & Finch, and specifically one space, which had been vacant for several years, was leased.  The space was very difficult to lease based on its configuration/layout but Jeff was very persistent and successfully leased it for me, for that I am very appreciative.
I am grateful to Jeff for all of his hard work and would be happy to recommend him to others in the commercial real estate industry.

I found Jeff through his website as I was looking to relocate my dental practice as my landlord was planning to redevelop my current property for condos.  At the outset, when I contacted Jeff, I also spoke to a residential real estate agent who was scouring the city for an appropriate location for my business.  In short order, I realized that Jeff was the specialist that I required to make this happen.  Shortly thereafter, after committing to Jeff, he presented me with several options.  The ideal spot was available in a shopping centre with Shoppers Drug Mart, LCBO and a Starbucks two doors away from my soon to be new location.  How perfect is that to be situated so close to a Starbucks with the amount of traffic they draw to a shopping centre!

I was extremely impressed with Jeff’s knowledge, varied experiences in commercial real estate  and connections to make this daunting task a bit more bearable.

Jeff’s negotiation skills are second to none.  He is very experienced in lease negotiations and was able to point out things to me that I would have never known.  He has a great team he works with (referred me to a great real estate lawyer and several insurance brokers).

I really  could not have imagined that the ideal location to take my dental practice to the next level is now a reality and mine for the next number of years!

Thank you Jeff for always being available to me, for your guidance through the lengthy negotiations and for being patient and thorough. You are a great guy and would not hesitate to recommend your services to others.

I am very pleased to write this testimonial about my recent experience working with Jeff Wolfe.  Working with Jeff was an extremely positive experience.  Jeff and I had a few brief initial conversations when we decided to work together and immediately, he knew exactly what type of office space and the buildings that would be great options for my business.  He took the time to show me various options which ultimately helped narrow down the decision to the ideal space. 

Jeff was able to structure a deal that fit within my budget and he was able to successfully negotiate with the landlord to have them build out an entirely new space for my business purposes.

Jeff recommended a very good real estate lawyer that was able to work through the lease documentation in an easy to understand manner.

I am very appreciative for all of Jeff’s assistance with this transaction and would highly recommend his services to anyone with commercial real estate needs.  I look forward to working with him again in the future!

Having outgrown our Yorkville studio and in search for a new space for our growing business, my partner and I realized we required not any real-estate agent but somebody who is connected and understands business.  We had many pragmatic and emotional requirements, being a boutique interior design firm with discerning clients. After an extensive search involving recommendations from people in the real-estate industry, web search, etc. we found Jeff and are glad we found him.

We gave Jeff a broad set of requirements as we sought not a specific location or space, but rather a balance between a set of criteria within a handful of neighbourhoods in Toronto. We desired a unique space and the prospective space had to be surrounded by hip yet upscale design resources and shops so that our designers and clients can benefit from such synergies.

Jeff contacted several landlords who specialize in the type of space we wanted and presented us with several options. What is important is that Jeff understood our business brand and the feeling we wanted our future space to evoke. Also, Jeff’s connections to landlords in Toronto was invaluable as he found us an ideal property that was not listed on MLS.  He is extremely knowledgeable and had a great deal of insight to lead us in the right direction.

Jeff led and assisted in negotiations of the offer to lease and referred us to a very good real-estate lawyer who assisted with finalizing the lease. He kept an eye to detail and deadlines throughout which made the process seamless.

These are all examples of going above and beyond and we are most appreciative for all of Jeff’s hard work and dedication. We want to thank him for his diligent effort throughout the process.

Fardid Biglar, BiglarKinyan Design Planning Inc.

I have known Jeff for several years and knew when I needed to find office space for my architectural firm, Jeff was the only person to call.

I found Jeff to be very detail-oriented, competent and perceptive as it related to fulfilling our requirements.  Jeff was a good listener, followed through on promises he made and truly cared about what I wanted out of this transaction.   We looked at several options and ultimately decided on the most suitable facility.  Since we were required to move within a very short time frame, Jeff undertook to negotiate 2 offers in 2 different buildings which in turn resulted in us securing excellent space at an attractive price.  The negotiations were quite complex and took a considerable amount of time and effort on his part to complete the process to our satisfaction.

I wish to express my thanks and appreciation for all the assistance he provided during our recently completed office lease negotiations.  I look forward to being able to refer clients to Jeff in the future so they can have the same positive experience we had.

Marcus Scoler, Architect
Scoler Lee & Associates Architects Inc.

I was fortunate to have had Jeff represent me in my recent office lease transaction. We worked together for several months to find an ideal location for my dental practice. I needed to relocate my business within a short period of time and Jeff wasted no time in locating potential space, arranging showings and negotiating the lease.

Jeff was very persistent. In one building, the landlord did not want to consider my business as there were already several dentists operating in the building. Jeff persevered and was able to get the landlord to reconsider.

Leases can be very comprehensive and confusing. Jeff was very detailed and precise in all aspects of the negotiation. His attention to the details, big and small, helped identify important items that may have been excluded and he made sure they were included to my benefit.

Jeff’s a great guy. He was always available whenever I had any questions/concerns throughout the entire process. I appreciated his honesty and straightforward demeanour. He was always looking out for my best interest. I would recommend him to all of my contacts who need assistance in any commercial real estate transaction.

I recently used Jeff to help me with searching and negotiating for new industrial space for my business. I have known Jeff since we were in elementary school and felt very comfortable hiring Jeff to represent my business in this transaction.
I gave Jeff a small area I would be comfortable moving my business to as I wanted the new building to be close to our previous business operation to ensure that all staff were able to easily access the new facility.

He presented me with a few opportunities and we quickly found our new home. Jeff was extremely thorough during the negotiations ensuring that key clauses were inserted into the deal, always looking out for our best interest. He was always accessible, very experienced in commercial real estate and was definitely the best person to represent my business. He is extremely down-to-earth, explained the clauses in the offer to lease and has the background and connections in the industry to get the deal done!

Thank you very much Jeff for everything you did to finalize this transaction. We are very appreciative of your hard work!

Dear Jeff,

We would like to thank you for all your help in negotiating and securing a lease for our business. Over the years We have been accustomed to negotiate our commercial leases on our own as we dealt with individual landlords. When we started to look for a new space, we decided to use a commercial realtor as our requirements have changed and we needed a large industrial space. We are very happy that we have found you and benefited from your expertise. During this long and sometimes frustrating process we appreciated your professionalism and enjoyed working with you. We would highly recommend Jeff Wolfe to any business looking to lease/buy/sell a commercial property. The value added Jeff brings into the deal is most beneficial. Glad to have you on our team of professional services Jeff.

N & H, proprietors

I have known Jeff for a very long time and he is extremely hardworking always looking out for his client’s best interest. He knows the market very well, completes exhaustive research and is always available to show space and to answer any questions. He is a great negotiator and saved us substantial dollars for the renovations of our new office/industrial space. The best thing I can say about Jeff Wolfe apart from his real estate knowledge is that he is honest and candid.

Whether you are looking to relocate, renegotiate with your current landlord or to buy/sell a commercial building, you can rely on Jeff to guide and support you every step of the way.

Paul Lindzon
CEO, ITA/CHRIST LTD.

Jeff has been our leasing representative at our office building at 55 Eglinton Avenue East for several years. He has completely turned around the building by leasing numerous spaces to high-quality and good tenants and has substantially reduced our vacancy rate.

Jeff is very good at working through difficult issues in order to complete deals. He provides a stellar level of service while representing our best interests. He is prompt and very detail oriented. I would highly recommend Jeff to landlords seeking a specialist in the marketing and leasing of commercial properties.

Michael Clark
Vice President, Acquisitions, Asset Management & General Counsel

I would highly recommend Jeff Wolfe for your commercial real estate needs. His efforts and comprehensive knowledge in helping us find a new office for our business was second to none. From the first time I met Jeff, he was extremely organized and was a great communicator. He provided me with several options to choose from as well as the knowledge required to narrow down the choices. He kept me informed throughout the entire negotiation and was able to use his vast experience to negotiate a great deal for me. It was difficult to find someone so down-to-earth and experienced to help me attain everything I required in an office space. Jeff is not pushy or arrogant and is very well connected in the industry which definitely worked in my favour. It was a pleasure to work with Jeff and thanks again for everything you did to make the process bearable with very little stress!

John Poole
Founder at Primate Labs

Earlier this year, I was looking for a commercial real estate broker to assist me with searching and negotiating for a new office lease for my medical practice. I found Jeff’s website and was thoroughly impressed with the site as well as the testimonials written by his previous clients.
I called Jeff to set up an appointment to meet and knew right away he was the right person to help me. We searched many buildings near my previous office and we were able to negotiate a deal at Bay and College. The negotiations with the landlord were difficult but Jeff was very persistent and was able to finalize a great deal for me in the ideal medical building. I was required to move out of my previous office so Jeff also found me very functional temporary office space (for several months) to operate my practice from while waiting for my new office to be ready.
He has a vast list of contacts in the industry and referred me to a real estate lawyer, designer (who assisted me with the drawings and permit) and several contractors.
Thanks Jeff for all of your help throughout this arduous process. I am very appreciative for the time and effort you put forth.

Dr. Philip Scappatura
Travel Medicine Centre

We recently hired Jeff to represent us in a commercial condo unit purchase on Yonge Street to expand our Physiotherapy Clinic. He was extremely knowledgeable in the commercial real estate market and was very pleasant and thorough in every aspect of the transaction. He is very connected in the industry and his contact list is vast with consultants who were able to give us advice throughout the process (real estate lawyer, contractor, designer and mortgage broker).

Jeff was able to negotiate a purchase price below the asking price and was always accessible to us whenever we needed to talk to him. You came through for us Jeff and we can’t thank you enough for all that you did to finalize this transaction!

Ryan and Lindsay Davey
Toronto Physiotherapy

As a business owner, there are few items more critical than site selection and effective negotiations. Jeff was able to complete both of these for us VERY effectively! I was looking to open a second location for my successful fitness studio in midtown Toronto and working with Jeff was a pleasure! He is very personable, easy to talk to and truly cares about his client’s needs. We got along extremely well from our first meeting and that made the entire process much smoother. Typically, once a deal is done, a broker moves onto his next project. Jeff continued to check in with me to see how the renovations were coming along, came by to visit the location during construction and was always available to discuss any questions I had for him. He scoured the area trying to find us the perfect space and I cannot thank him enough for his efforts! I would highly recommend his services to those wanting to work with someone who is calm, patient and down-to-earth.

Paul Bonder
Owner, Barreworks

My wife and I met Jeff Wolfe at a time when we needed an experienced real estate professional. We switched our services to Jeff as we were in the midst of a sub-par experience with a different broker.
Jeff was able to work via email when we were busy, and followed up via phone to reassure us that everything was going well.  As this was our first commercial lease, we were tentative, and nervous.  Jeff assisted us every step of the way, including answering the simplest of questions.
Negotiating the offer was smooth, and Jeff took care of all necessary elements to expedite the process to meet our deadline.
I would recommend Jeff Wolfe if you are looking for a down to earth representative who is on top of everything, every step of the way.

Phil Ortwein
Philosophy Fitness

We recently used Jeff to assist us in relocating our office for our technology business.  This is the second time we have utilized Jeff’s services and each time, we came away with a very positive experience.  Prior to contacting Jeff, we called a few agents to see what was available in midtown Toronto.  Much to our surprise, these agents didn’t have the courtesy to even return our calls!   When we contacted Jeff, he responded very quickly.  He is a very pleasant individual who is knowledgeable, forthright and honest.  He was able to secure office space for our business in a building that met our budget requirements and we are very appreciative for his efforts, openness and availability throughout the entire process.

Thanks Jeff for all that you did to make the transaction seamless and stress free!

Eric S.

For more than six months, I was searching for the best location to open my optometry practice. I knew it would be a challenge as I wanted to be in a busy area, close to home and within my budget constraints. Jeff was able to find me the ideal location on Yonge Street meeting all of my criteria. Having Jeff represent my interests throughout the process made finalizing a deal stress free. He is smart, trustworthy, honest and NOT pushy like many brokers.
He is extremely patient, very easy to talk to and was always accessible whenever I had questions (during the day, evenings and weekends). Jeff is sincere in wanting to find commercial space for his clients ensuring they are happy which is rare to find in a commercial sales representative. Many are looking out for their best interests trying to finalize a deal to get paid so they can move on to the next client. Jeff spent a tremendous amount of time with me on this transaction and I am truly so appreciative and lucky that I had him representing me. Jeff’s knowledge of the commercial market is very strong while his advice always assisted me in finalizing a deal.

To future/prospective clients, do yourself a favour and call Jeff today as you won’t regret using him to represent your best interests!

Dr. Sophia Awadia

Jeff has represented me on various commercial real estate deals over the past several years. I would be hard pressed to find someone whose knowledge, dedication and ambition are matched.

He spends a great deal of time analyzing each deal while always ensuring my interests are number one. He is a consummate professional who is always available to answer my real estate questions. The best move you can make is to have Jeff represent you with your commercial real estate needs.

Jeff was a pleasure to work with.  Not only is he very knowledgeable in the Toronto commercial market, but he was extremely diligent, reliable and accessible.  Most importantly, he was able to think outside the box, using alternative means and creative thinking in order to find me just the right unique space I was looking for. I could not be happier in the office space we found. It was exactly what we needed and is the perfect fit for my company.  Thanks Jeff!

I had been researching and looking for a commercial space to open my indoor educational play centre for children for more than 2 years.  Although my search was unsuccessful for a period of time, I was fortunate to have recently found Jeff to help me with the entire process as he helped to uncover properties that would permit and be conducive to my business.  After talking with him for a few minutes, I knew he was the right person to help me overcome some of the obstacles I encountered previously.

Within a very short period of time, we narrowed the search to a property that was perfect!  There would be minimal tenant improvements required and the layout was exactly what I was looking for.  Jeff was able to connect me with a zoning/building planning consultant who was able to assist with potential issues which were overcome.  In addition, his referral network is second to none (he referred me to a few contractors who were highly qualified and able to complete the required work).  His negotiation skills and persistence with the landlord are one of the main reasons I was able to get this deal finalized.

Jeff’s expertise, experience and extremely pleasant demeanour made the entire process seamless.  With the amount of time I had spent to plan for my new business, I am finally able to pursue my dream business in no small part to Jeff’s assistance!

Lisa Shams
Owner, Kids Playtown

 I recently used Jeff to represent me as I was looking to relocate my medical practice.  From the first time I met Jeff, he was extremely responsive to my requirements and my time constraints.  Jeff was able to negotiate a complex agreement with the landlord ensuring that all of my requirements were fulfilled.  Jeff was able to negotiate all the tenant improvements that I required for my practice at the landlord’s expense.

I am very appreciative for all of Jeff’s hard work as I had approximately one month to complete all negotiations, have renovations completed and relocate my practice with no downtime.  Thank you Jeff!

Dr. Doron Almagor

Jeff Wolfe was instrumental in helping my firm obtain and select new offices for our impending re-location. Jeff was able to provide a variety of useful options for our short-term needs and demonstrated helpful flexibility with the landlord on the negotiating end. I would unreservedly recommend Jeff for your commercial real estate needs.

Jordan D. Sobel
Barrister and Solicitor

As our business continued to grow and our need for new space was quickly approaching, I contacted Jeff to assist us with the entire process.  We had used Jeff’s services a few years prior and were very pleased with his knowledge and guidance.   Jeff searched all buildings within our desired location and showed us everything that was available.  He always made himself available on short notice whenever necessary.  Jeff was very knowledgeable and patient and helped us strategize with respect to how much free rent and tenant improvement allowance dollars to ask for and assisted throughout with questions that arose with our designer, contractor and lawyer.  His experience was invaluable in securing our business a very favourable deal.  He is a wealth of  knowledge and above all, is a good person who truly wants what is best for his clients.  He is assertive, is always honest and knows how to complete deals.

We look forward to hiring Jeff again in the future and to referring him to those we know who need similar help.

 It is a great pleasure to write this testimonial for Jeff Wolfe, who assisted me in leasing retail space for my new business. A very good real estate agent by definition involves knowing the market, being honest, trustworthy, a good communicator and understanding his/her client’s needs. Jeff’s experiences and expertise definitely helped the transaction to run smoothly. I felt that the quality of service I received from Jeff couldn’t be bettered by another real estate agent. I would like to express how much I appreciated the efforts you put forth and will definitely recommend any further business to be directed your way.

Jeff was our firm’s real estate agent.  He not only helped us find a great place within a short time; but he handled everything for us!  This included negotiating renovations, dealing with the owners and supervised all work while I was at work -doing work!

He found us a perfect office next to the subway, short travel distance to all employees and with all the business amenities in close distance. He is not only extremely knowledgeable in the Toronto real estate market; but was a pleasure to work with! He made a stressful situation so easy. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is trying to sell, buy or lease in Toronto!

Asaph B.
Satisfied Client

I was referred to Jeff and I was stuck. I was forced to relocate my entire operation and didn’t have the time to even think about it as I was in the height of my season and needed to focus on my business.
I met Jeff once, outlined what I was looking for and wanted, and that was the last I saw of him until he had found us exactly what I described. I would highly recommend him to anybody, but especially those like me that have no patience and need to work with professionals only, that know as much about what they do as I know about what I do.

David W.
Satisfied Client

I was referred to Jeff Wolfe through a mutual contact and was told he is very connected in commercial real estate, listens to client’s needs and is very efficient and detail-oriented in the search process. All of this is 100% TRUE!

I needed industrial space as I was launching a new business. I gave Jeff the criteria for the type of space and location I was looking for and after seeing several buildings, I found the ideal space for my business. Jeff handled all lease negotiations on my behalf always looking out for my best interests. I was completely satisfied with the services Jeff provided and would highly recommend him to those who want to work with someone who is thorough, responsive and excellent at what they do!

I was introduced to Jeff Wolfe through a friend of mine who completed a deal with Jeff and was very satisfied with his work. I can honestly say I had the exact same experiences with Jeff!. He is prompt, accurate, very knowledgeable and when he says he will do something, he follows through and completes exactly what he says he will do. I needed space to operate my business and Jeff made the entire process effortless. I have already recommended Jeff to a business contact of mine and will continue to refer him business in the future.
