Read what previous customers have to say about Commercial Realty Solutions.

  • Sheila Zachman has been the best leasing agent that I have had in my 30 years in the commercial real estate business. She is professional yet personal and goes the extra mile to make sure both the tenant and landlord have everything they need to get the deal done. We have done quite a few deals with CRS because Sheila also works hard to get the type of tenant that the landlord is looking for. I have known Wayne for 20 years and know him as a strait shooter--just the type of person I like to do business with.

  • "We would like to thank Ms. Sheila Zachman of CRS for selling our commercial lot in Maple Lake, MN.  Not all real estate transactions are equal.  The property we sold had narrow appeal and was specialized.  In spite of these potential barriers, Ms. Zachman diligently worked on selling the property until successful.  Adding to the other issues, my company is located in New York.  Ms. Zachman recommended and interfaced with the Title company to complete the entire transaction in a month.  Ms. Zachman exemplifies a degree of professionalism that will compliment any commercial real estate transaction."

  • “It is a pleasure to make a recommendation on Commercial Realty Solutions.  We had a commercial property to sell, we listed through two other agencies (residential realtors). They were both good in residential, but commercial 6,000 sq. ft. buildings are harder, you need to find the right buyer at the right time. In fact, the last realtor we had suggested/proposed we switch to CRS – Commercial Realty Solutions, since they had a good reputation of marketing and selling commercial real estate.  After a few months, they had two offers the same week and both offered full price. What I really liked about Joe and Wayne, is their communication style and follow through. Every time there was any movement on the property, potential client inquiries and any sense an offer was in the works, they let me know immediately.  They also analyzed the potential buyers to see which ones had the best chance of getting over the finish line (to the closing date with approved money). Since we were in an agriculture zone, the buyers’ plans also had to be approved by both the City Planning and County Planning committees.  Joe and Wayne both made it a point to be at those meetings representing us and then immediately called to let us know the outcome and next steps.  We were very pleased at the whole process and how CRS performed for us.”

  • Freedom! Relief! Thankfulness!  These are the three words that come to mind when I reflect on the sale of my property in Rogers, MN.  I owned such a unique manufacturing building that I thought its sale would be a miracle, and everyone around me affirmed those fears.  The stress dial was cranked as life had added significant financial stress to my family with big business changes and a way out felt hopeless.  Then I met Wayne and CRS.  Although the sale wasn’t easy, it was smooth.  Wayne is an extremely professional realtor, with the kind of ambition, resolve, and detailed work that you need when your property HAS to get sold.  My farming family is thankful for Wayne and CRS and I would recommend them any day of the week.

  • CRS and Eric were great to work with in negotiating our office lease.  They provided invaluable market information so we were comfortable knowing we were getting the best terms for the space we wanted.  Their follow up was phenomenal, both with us and the leasing agent.  Thank you CRS and Eric for making this process as painless as possible!

  • Working with CRS was a seamless process!  The staff was very professional and competent in every aspect of the job.  The sale of my business was swift and CRS rates are incredibly reasonable.  Mike and CRS were in constant communication with me and I was always informed of every step of the process.  I would highly recommend CRS to anyone selling their business.  It was truly a pleasure working with CRS and their team of experts!

  • We came to Wayne at CRS after first listing our business with a realtor who specialized in restaurant sales and getting no results.  CRS was recommended by Chris Kruse of Edward Jones in Monticello.  We are so happy that we took his suggestion!  Wayne and his team were so responsive and great to work with.  I don’t know how they do it, as busy as they are, but they really make you feel like you are the only customer they have!  As with a lot of commercial transactions, complications, questions and craziness popped up but Wayne managed to keep us calm and carrying on.  Very professional, very knowledgeable and also very well connected to the industry and area that they serve.  Thank you so much to Wayne and his CRS team.

  • My experience working with CRS and Sheila Zachman has been wonderful!  We have actually purchased two properties with Sheila and she was nothing but helpful.  All of our questions were answered and CRS came to every City meeting to make sure everything went smoothly.  We would definitely use CRS and their expertise in the future!  Thank you CRS and Sheila for everything you did.
