Ashley has represented my company and I in 4 real estate transactions in recent years. The first transaction, in 2018, was for a small aggregate vacant land parcel that we were able to secure with only a few bumps along the way. Ashley was able to work through this transaction to finalize it fairly easily and quickly.

The real challenge was throughout the better part of 2020 and the global Pandemic. Ashley was working with a national charity client to sell their current building and help them relocate within the city. Space was limited, and options were scarce, so locating a new storefront / office proved difficult. After months of researching, she successfully located a suitable potential off market location for the Tenant. As she was aware that I was looking to expand my investment portfolio, Ashley approached me with the strong business case to make an offer. 

The building was owned by a national, Board governed firm and, throughout, negotiations were challenging. The Seller needed to achieve a set price, by a set date, and needed to negotiate a leaseback for a portion of the building. The onset of COVID only complicated the process further. As the value in the opportunity was worth working through, Ashley stuck it out and worked through several obstacles creatively to get to a firm deal. After 8 months of correspondence, not only did Ashley, with Shannon’s assistance, manage to navigate to completion of the purchase AND leaseback with the Seller, but also secured two leases, including her national charitable tenant into the new space for a 10-year lease, creating a strong addition to my portfolio and a great relationship for future projects.

I would not hesitate to recommend Ashley and the Squarefoot Commercial Group for any commercial real estate project that may need undertaking. The quick, creative thinking, attention to detail and education between these ladies becomes obvious and invaluable almost immediately.

I really value Linda and Shannon of Squarefoot (have not done much with Ashley but she is awesome too). Before I mention why, I have to say my appreciation for Linda specifically starts back in the day when I knew almost nothing about land or farms. A client really wanted me to list their $2 million family farm and I was in over my head.  I knew Linda was the Big Dog in town so rather than going alone, I asked Linda to co-list it with me. Well that was one of the smartest things I did as I got to learn from the best and our friendship only grew from there (I still think she is a Big Dog today!)  Shannon and I have great history as well. We have done nothing but great business together (most recently in fall of 2019 on a tough deal) as we look after our respective clients best interests and yet are always able to work through the “Not so easy stuff” with creative solutions! To be clear they are my competitors but they are also my friends and love that the best of the best are always only a phone call away.

Just over four years ago my brother and I ventured into the commercial real estate market in search of  specific properties. Shannon and the Squarefoot team answered all our questions and alleviated any concerns we had. They also went above and beyond researching market trends and making suggestions on other properties and ideas on what to develop them into and even locate/suggest potential commercial tenants that they had contacts too. Several purchases later we continue to be more than satisfied by the teams experience and highly recommend the whole team for any and all expert commercial real estate advice and acquisitions.

One happy client.

I have known & worked with Linda & her company for decades, literally, and found her to be honest, hard-working, knowledgeable in her field & well-connected.  In a most recent challenging transaction, her diligence and that of her associates [Shannon and Ashley] has made for exceptional results.

I have dealt with Linda and her team for over 33 years in senior executive rolls spanning 4 different companies which is a true testament to her service offering and dedication to customer retention.

Linda, Shannon and Ashley, are very well informed on market conditions whether it is a buy or sell and provide clients with strong data analytics to make good informed decisions.

I believe as a boutique operation they provide their clients with creative solutions leading to profitable results.

I have no issue in referring this group business and have done so repeatedly.

I first met Linda Loftus thirty seven years ago when we both started our Real Estate careers at the local office of  a large. successful , well known,  country wide Real Estate Company. Within a short time we both moved on,  Linda to specialize in Commercial Real Estate and I started my own  Residential Real Estate  Company. 

I have always respected Linda as a honest, knowledgeable, ethical  and very professional  Realtor. I have sought her opinion when I had any question about Commercial  Real Estate. 

When it was the time for me to sell an Industrial Building my company owned,  I sought Linda’s help. She assisted me in  finding  a buyer and guided me through the entire procedure to a successful closing. I would highly recommend that no one  should venture into the world of Commercial Real Estate without enlisting Linda’s expertise.
