Carlsen O’Connell Commercial Real Estate, James and Dave go above and beyond!
I had been searching for a new location for my business on and off for the past year and spoke to many brokers. Some brokers didn’t even bother to call me back or called back days or weeks later. My deadline was looming large and my search intensified. I called on a property, but it was no longer available. The broker asked what I was looking for and said he would see what he could find. That was the first time a broker had offered any assistance in my search. I was not going to hold my breath. Much to my surprise, the broker emailed me a few days later. That broker was James O’Connell of Carlsen O’Connell Commercial Real Estate. Unlike other brokers I spoke to, James did what he said he would. He emailed me a list of properties with all the details I needed and additional information to anticipated questions. This was an absolute time saver! Because James has excellent working relationships with property owners and other brokers, we were able to view the properties very quickly and I found the perfect location before my deadline. James is professional, knowledgeable, incredibly amiable, answers his phone, and returns calls, texts and emails quickly. Carlsen O’Connell Commercial Real Estate arranged several bids for a phone and data contractor, which meant that James or Dave Carlsen (who is very professional and attentive as well), found several contractors, met them at the property, compiled the bids, got my approval, then coordinated with the general contractor. My time spent, about 2 minutes. James found the perfect space at my desired rate. James saved me both time and money and I would recommend Carlsen O’Connell Commercial Real Estate to anyone. Thank you for all your hard work.
James and Dave are simply the best in Sacramento. They are honest, hardworking and professional. Finding office space in Downtown Sacramento is a daunting task and there is no way we would have done it without Carlsen, O’Connell Commercial Real Estate. I highly recommend anyone looking for an office, especially on short timeline, to use their services.
Dave Carlsen and James O’Connell are top notch professionals. I worked with James to find a location for my business in Folsom. I appreciate the honest and integrity with which James conducts business. We were closely looking at 1 property and ready to write an offer. James identified a newer listing with another broker that he realized would be a better fit for our business and was quick to let us know about it. That deal ultimately didn’t work out for us but it was refreshing to know James was truly interested in finding us the right property, rather than quickly closing any deal. Highly recommend Carlsen O’Connell for anyone in need of commercial real estate property.
Excellent experience working with Dave. He is professional, resourceful, energetic, well prepared and worked diligently to get the project completed.
We recently moved into our very first warehouse space, after having worked out of our home for a couple of years. We were sort of dreading the process of finding a place, because we assumed it would take forever, be too expensive, etc. Well, working with Dave made the process an absolute breeze. We gave him the general location we wanted, and the approximate size and rent amounts we were looking for. Within two days he provided us a list of options. And, the nice thing was that all of the options fell within the parameters we provided, so he did not waste our time with things we couldn’t afford. We set an appointment for the following day to go look at 3-4 of the properties on the list. We ended up not going with any of those, but the next place we looked at was perfect! Size, location, and price all were exactly what we wanted. Dave was very responsive during the whole process and took care of all the leg work with the landlord, so all we had to do was sign the lease and move in. He even managed to negotiate a free month of rent for us! It was very obvious the Dave was looking out for our best interests during the whole process, which we appreciated so much. We can’t recommend him highly enough!
Dave is very professional and helpful. He helped me with all the questions I had when my business was ready to rent our first office space. We are a small business and it was not a large space but he always available for us. I really recommend Dave if your looking for commercial space.
Dave is highly professional and has helped me with multiple transactions! He is very thorough and knowledgeable. He is able to help out with both leases and purchases!!!
Dave went above and beyond in providing analysis on our building value. Dave was extremely thorough, knowledgeable and very professional. He came to us with multiple ideas we had not thought of and I would recommend him to anyone.
I used Dave to lease my office space during a move from another city. Very professional and easy to work with. Took care of everything in terms of search, arranging property visits. Was able to negotiate a good lease. I’ve been in my office for almost a year and have been very pleased.
I worked with Dave Carlsen while relocating my office to Sacramento. There are lots of moving pieces when going from one city to another but Dave was on top of everything involving my new space and really provided me with piece of mind with this aspect of my move. I recommend his services with confidence.
