"David Sigmon helped us with the purchase of the Brains on Fire building in the West Village. So when we were ready to sell, it seemed natural to ask for his guidance. The property sale was super-fast (just seven days after listing on the market). I highly recommend David and the team at Pintail. They are shiny smart, effective communicators and all-around good people. "
"We have dealt with many brokers over the years and they have been sufficient. We decided to use Lakin Parr over others to list our property because of his "get it done " attitude. His professionalism and approach was spot on. We were more than pleased with the way he handled every challenge we encountered during the listing of our property. There was no wasted time in our dealings. We would sum up Lakin Parr as professional and aggressive with a great temperament. Above all, he is a "Go-Getter" - we are glad we had him to represent us in our transaction."
"Ross is a rockstar broker! He really knows the ins and outs of a 1031 exchange. We have several mutual clients and Ross is able to accurately advise them on their exchange requirements should they sell a building. This makes him - and his clients – very easy for us to work with. I would highly recommend Ross to anyone considering a 1031 exchange."
"Lakin did an incredible job handling our recent 1031 acquisition needs. His knowledge and expertise made the process seamless from the initial property search to negotiating and closing on a 20 year absolute net deal. He coordinated all of the appropriate parties and items needed for a private 1031 Exchange buyer, staying on top of our deal every step of the way. Lakin put together a perfect scenario admist the shifting market, mid-COVID, that will provide a good income for the next 20 years."
"We don't look on Ross Kester and Pintail Partners as just our broker, we look on them as a long-term partner and teammate as we look to expand our portfolio. From helping us secure long term leases on our emergency veterinary facilities in Greenville to locating investment property in Columbia, they consistently work in an organized, thoughtful manner focused towards creating tremendous value in our overall portfolio. "
"Pintail Capital has been a phenomenal partner on our project in Greenville. Although we are a smaller first time client, they have treated us with white-glove service. Josh and Monty are not only enjoyable to work with, they have added great value to our property from their leasing expertise. Their deep understanding of the market, strong relationships with tenant rep brokers, and thoughtful lease structuring have improved our asset management and deepened out rent roll. We will continue to work on all future projects in the Greenville MSA with Pintail."
"Ross and the team at Pintail provided our ownership group comprehensive advisory services in the sale of our medical office building. They successfully negotiated a new lease with our hospital tenant, and delivered on a quick closing to a 1031 Exchange buyer. We relied on Pintail’s expertise throughout this process, and they made a potentially complicated transaction seamless."
"We consulted Josh and Monty off of the recommendation of another close colleague upon our entry into the Greenville market and we are extremely glad we did. Josh and Monty’s ability to understand our specific site selection needs and turn them into actionable, executable and deal worthy results far exceeds that of other brokers. Their in depth understanding of the market, the state as a whole and the needs of individual retailers, including our user made the decision to work with them an easy one. This paired with their ability to understand and adapt to the wants of each seller and the needs that we put forth have secured our business with them in South Carolina. We are looking forward to our continued work with Pintail Partners for our site selection needs."
"I have worked with Josh on almost a dozen projects over the past several years. I regard him as someone possessing the utmost integrity and a strong work ethic. Josh’s willingness to get his hands dirty while always prioritizing the interests of his partners is uncommon among his peers. I am especially impressed by Josh’s thoroughness in underwriting tenants. Josh can always be relied upon to give balanced, reasoned advice. His creative thinking combined with an entrepreneurial mindset has resulted in strong returns over the life our relationship. I consider him an invaluable partner in any real estate deal in which I am involved."
"I’ve sold many pieces of both commercial real estate and nobody tops the work that Cameron and Sydney do at Pintail Capital. Not only are they both consumate professionals, they are always…and I mean always, one step ahead of you and completely on top of your specific deal. Without them I do not believe I would have had the successful outcomes I’ve had to date. I can’t recommend these two enough!"
"I hired Lakin for access to his expertise in commercial property leasing. Lakin's knowledge was what I needed. His consulting exceeded my expectations and I look forward to the chance to use his talents again. His fairness, industry specific knowledge, and sound logic resulted in a lease that is better for both lessee and lessor. Thank you Lakin and thank you Pintail!"
"Ross and Lakin did an excellent job walking me through the investment sale process from A to Z, enabling me to get three times the fair market value of my property by utilizing a sale leaseback scenario. More importantly, they made sure the deal did not skip a beat in the midst of peak COVID anxiety when the market heavily favored buyers. I highly recommend Lakin, Ross and the Pintail team to help you conduct a sale leaseback for your business or medical office practice."
"We have worked with Josh on multiple acquisitions and dispositions throughout the Southeast. His tenacious hunting for properties has allowed us to acquire class A real estate below market price. Josh’s proactiveness, responsiveness, and technical skills have allowed us to quickly build our real estate portfolio. He understands our exact purchase criteria; when Josh tells us about a new property, we always know it will be one we will want to pursue."
"Pintail Capital Partners represented our law partnership in the lease of our professional office space in Greenville. Tyson, Josh, and Monty handled the process very well and secured a tenant after only a few weeks of marketing the property. We would absolutely recommend Pintail."
"We had the pleasure of working with Ross and Lakin with Pintail Capital this year to sell our medical real estate assets. The entire process was seamless and professionally handled along the way from listing to closing. The Pintail team was readily accessible anytime we needed them and prompt to reply to our questions 7 days a week. I would recommend their services without reservation to anyone. Their knowledge of the market and professional manner were excellent. "
"I have been honored to work with Josh for several years in multiple investment acquisitions and leasing and have found him to be extremely hardworking, honest, practical, and creative. His advice and judgment have always been spot-on. Real estate transactions - including acquisitions, leasing and management - can be complicated, but Josh makes it easy by being a fantastic problem-solver, coupled with his responsiveness and resourcefulness. Josh’s steady hand and consistent, level-headed guidance have been invaluable to me as I build my portfolio of properties. In over 15 years of being a real estate investor, I am very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with someone I can trust so much, and who has been an integral part of my success."
"Cameron assisted us in selling our Food Lion anchored shopping center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Cameron’s specialized knowledge of grocery anchored retail in the Southeast allowed him to bring an off-market buyer to the table, leading to a successful and timely close. We look forward to working with him again in the future."
"When I think back over all the issues that came up over the course of the extensive renovations, I cannot think of a single one in which I was not happy with the discussions and the end results. We really appreciate all the hard work to keep everything on schedule, within budget, and obtaining quality tenants so quickly after the renovations."
"I have closed on several large retail deals with Cameron and each has been a great, professional, trustworthy experience. He is my “go to” guy in the southeast and I look forward to doing more business with Cameron in future."
"Ross Kester at Pintail worked tirelessly with us to find a larger, more suitable property to relocate our electrical supply business. Not only did Ross assist us on this acquisition, but he also was instrumental in helping us purchase a medical office building as part of a 1031 Exchange. These were not easy tasks given the tight Greenville real estate market. If you are looking for a tenacious, comprehensive, professional, knowledgeable and caring commercial real estate team look no further than Pintail Capital Partners."
"I have worked with Josh in the acquisition, leasing, and management of several value-add projects since 2014. As an absentee investor/owner, trusted local expertise is absolutely essential. Josh has provided that! Honestly, straightforward guidance, well informed opinion and market analysis throughout our relationship has been vital to the success of my investments. His expertise and honesty are much appreciated and respected."
"Tyson Smoak was key in helping us find the right piece of property for the BMW Car Club of America. We had very specific needs and Tyson took the time to understand what we needed and work diligently until we found the right spot. He made a difficult process easy and we recommend him without hesitation."
"Lakin Parr did an excellent job for us – we were looking for the right piece of land for a ground up build for a national car wash chain and found the perfect spot, thanks to Lakin’s hard work and real estate knowledge. Lakin actively followed up with me throughout the project and was always quick to respond with help when needed. We will definitely use Lakin again."
"Our group worked with Josh in identifying and negotiating a lease on a new office location downtown Greenville. His market knowledge, easy-going demeanor, and responsiveness made the process of identifying and relocating to new office space a seamless transition."
"I have relied on Josh and his expertise with both an existing and new investments. Josh is extremely knowledgeable and personable, and uses his talents to manage and structure the investments in order to create an ideal investment opportunity. As a passive investor, Josh has advised me by identifying opportunity, recognizing investment potential, securing tenants, negotiating leases, and successfully managing assets."
"Stuart Wyeth with Pintail Capital Partners served as our real estate advisor during our recent search for new office space. We connected with Stuart early in the process to find our new space. Over the three-year search period, our criteria evolved and changed, partly due to the dynamic and competitive Greenville real estate market. Stuart presented unique opportunities to meet our needs and guided us through the negotiation process. We are thrilled with our new location and the financial terms Stuart helped us negotiate. I highly recommend the team at Pintail Capital Partners for their excellent advisory services capability."
"Josh did a great job facilitating the sale of our investment property. Within a week of bringing the property to market, his efforts resulted in several offers from qualified investors. Josh guided us through the process of selecting and negotiating with the most appropriate purchaser, a local 1031 buyer. The sale was closed in eight weeks at a price with which we were pleased. We will definitely work with Josh again!"
"Ross Kester approached me a few years ago about an investment opportunity to sell my building for significantly more than my cost basis. When the time was right, I asked him to go ahead and find a buyer. Ross spent over 12 months working on this project, patiently helping me through the numerous steps to make the sale a reality. I knew nothing about selling the office building and Ross guided me through all the phases of the project. It made such a difference having 100% trust and confidence that he had my best interest in mind."
"Over the past 6 years I have worked with Josh in leasing, selling, and buying property for myself and companies I own. Not only is Josh smart, but he works hard and has never “dropped the ball” with me. I have said it to him as well as others I have referred to him that he is “batting 1000” with me. Josh has leased or sold every property I have listed with him (10+). In the end, you want someone representing you who will aid you in making fiscally responsible decisions as well as just getting things completed. I personally would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate."
"Over the past eighteen months our ownership group chose to work with Ross and Tyson on the sale of two medical buildings. They successfully helped us navigate the complex and high stakes commercial investment property market. We were able to realize ‘top of market’ valuation for both properties. I attribute this achievement in large part to the expertise and depth of knowledge that Ross and Tyson were able to contribute to the process."
"When we bought our building we had tenants in all spaces. When our first tenant left we met with Josh and he immediately went to work finding us a new tenant. When he brought us a potential tenant, he also helped us negotiate an acceptable lease rate. We were happy with the experience and when a second tenant left we asked Josh to help us fill the second vacancy. Results - another successful story."
"Tyson and Ross were instrumental in the acquisition of my medical office building in Greenville SC. From helping me understand the comparative market data, to providing demographic information and expert contract negotiation, it was clear that they had my best interest at heart. I would not consider a significant commercial real estate transaction without their insight and support."
"Pintail Capital Partners and Fox Commercial provided the perfect solution to our practice’s real estate needs. After much initial discussion, we determined that for our practice, a build to suit solution was the right fit. The team of Pintail and Fox successfully walked us through the process of designing and constructing our new building in Simpsonville, SC. We could not be happier with their professional approach to the development process, and the finished product is excellent quality. Our physicians, patients and staff are all very pleased with the new facility."
"Pintail was recommended to us for what seemed like a relatively straightforward search: to find new space for our growing agency in downtown Greenville. That search, however, turned out to be anything but simple. Through it all, Tyson’s patience and persistence never waned. From working to renegotiate our expiring lease to delivering us a wide range of lease and purchase options that met our needs, Tyson and the entire Pintail team worked tirelessly on our behalf. No matter what was thrown at them, they met it with a great attitude and a well-informed perspective that kept us aware and confident at every step of the process. I’d recommend Tyson and Pintail without hesitation — especially for entrepreneurs and others who expect a real estate partner to be as creative, tenacious and tireless as they are."
"Pintail Capital Partners handled the sale of our building with great class. Their healthcare investment sales team brought a comprehensive approach to helping the ownership group weigh the pros and cons of selling. I can wholeheartedly recommend their services and will!"
"We have two investment entities which acquire small to medium sized retail shopping centers in the southeast. Josh has been both professional and thorough in his presentation, coordination with sellers, and analysis of leases in the process of six (6) acquisitions and greatly reduced our workload during the due diligence periods."
"Stuart Wyeth represented our building ownership group in the off-market sale of our corporate headquarters. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge of the investment sales process and his attentiveness to details throughout the transaction. Stuart guided us through the entire process and offered valuable advice on how to best structure the deal which included negotiating a new long term lease. He helped us reach our ultimate goal which was to maximize the asset value while still protecting our interests."
"Pintail did a fantastic job of securing a long term restaurant tenant for my property in Easley, South Carolina. I worked with Ross Kester to market the property and he successfully helped me evaluate two quality proposals, one for a long term lease and another for an outright sale. Ultimately I reached the conclusion that leasing was the best decision for our family, and we are very pleased with the deal that Ross helped us to secure."
"Stuart Wyeth and the Pintail Capital Partners team recently assisted our company with the acquisition of a new headquarters office facility. Stuart’s in-depth knowledge of the acquisition process helped our company quickly and efficiently purchase the property. He helped us put together a team to complete the onerous due diligence process and to navigate regulatory requirements. We highly recommend Pintail Capital Partners for their advisory services."
"I enjoyed working with Ross Kester and Jeff Day on the sale of my medical building in Spartanburg, SC. The team at Pintail came up with some creative solutions to work through my existing lease, and they were able to negotiate a lease modification with the tenant that facilitated a sale as an investment property. The transaction proceeded very smoothly and I am pleased with the outcome. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to divest of an investment property."
"Pintail Capital Partners represented me in the lease of my professional office space in downtown Greenville. They handled the process with great knowledge and professionalism. Pintail secured a tenant within a month of marketing the property. I have a high level of confidence in the entire Pintail team."
"It was a pleasure working with Ross Kester and Tyson Smoak during the disposition of our 30,000 plus square foot medical office building in South Carolina. Their expertise in commercial real estate, specifically the healthcare sector, is unmatched in our market. Healthcare real estate is a highly specialized niche, and this fact, combined with their high level of professionalism, made Ross and Tyson a valuable resource throughout this process."
"Working with Lakin Parr on the lease of my building in downtown Greenville was a smooth and easy process. He worked diligently to achieve an executed lease in less than two months. I am very pleased with Lakin and look forward to working with him in the future."
"I certainly recommend Pintail Capital Partners to anyone with commercial real estate needs. I used them to help find a location for my business. They went above and beyond to help me find what I needed, including all relevant stats and data for the location and surrounding areas. They produced data on businesses, population, and income within a 1, 3, and 5 mile radius of my office. I worked directly with Ross, and he was excellent! He helped out with absolutely everything I needed, including contract negotiations. I was dealing with a difficult landlord and he handled everything with the utmost of professionalism. I would recommend Pintail to any business looking to open up a new location or relocate."
"Lakin Parr did an excellent job on the sale of my 7,000 plus square foot freestanding office building in Greenville. I was unaware that the property had any issues until a Phase 1 report showed an environmental concern. Lakin navigated the somewhat challenging and unexpected cleanup process known as the Voluntary Cleanup Program. With his knowledge and professionalism, I successfully sold my building."
