In late 2011, my husband and I completed the purchase of a 14 unit apartment complex in Sacramento, California. Our representative broker for this investment was Brian Jacks, who has many years of experience dealing in commercial real estate. Prior to this transaction, my husband and I had purchased free standing homes however, had not ventured into commercial sized properties. This is where Brian’s expertise became invaluable. Brian spent a great deal of time researching the market to ascertain the true value of this property. For example, Brian was able to provide us with detailed cost comparisons between fully occupied and completely/partially vacant properties, which were also for sale on the market. This helped us to understand the true cost per square foot, cost to maintain each unit and surrounding gardens. Brian also knew what vacancy rate we should expect for the area, which assisted us in managing our anticipated income/expenses ratio. At our request, Brian remained heavily involved throughout the entire purchase process, including personally attending inspections for termites, roof, building and parking lot condition. Brian’s extensive knowledge in commercial real estate gave us the confidence to understand the process of making such a large investment and what to be aware of. Another huge benefit for us was Brian’s drive and determination to see the deal get over the line (at the right price, of course). The purchase of our apartment complex was completed within just three weeks of Brian making us aware of the opportunity! Moving quickly helped ensure that we would be the successful buyer of this great investment. With his professional attitude, approachability and attention to detail, Brian far exceeded our expectations. We have dealt with several different brokers over the years and there is just no comparison to the quality of Brian’s work. Brian kept us fully informed at every step along the way, which helped reduce our stress during a very extensive due diligence process. I would highly recommend anyone looking to purchase real estate to engage Brian as their broker. I know we will use Brian for our next real estate transaction. S. Latty

I recently had the pleasure of dealing with Mr. Brian Jacks, as he was the Commercial Real Estate Agent that helped our Church, Liberty Towers, negotiate a business arrangement with Cornerstone Christian School, as our new tenants. Brian Jacks is a super great guy that knows how to "go over and above the call of duty". He not only understands business, but he also understands people, which makes all the difference. He is not pushy at all, which is one of the things that I love about him, and all in all at the end of the day, our Church really knew that he cares more about us, than he did the business deal. Our Church, Liberty Towers, highly recommends him as your agent!
We worked with Brian to find a space for our new business. He was extremely helpful and professional, and we have leased a great spot. The leasing process was fast and easy. He has also been very supportive of our new business venture, and we really appreciate him for that! I would definitely recommend him for your commercial real estate needs.
