Testimonials

Clever Baking Co Gabrielle & Jon French
“Working with Andrew Perkel was one of our best decisions as a small business. His networking in Austin and quick follow-through landed us in the best possible space. After two years of looking on our own we hired Andrew and within a month had several optimistic options that were within our budget and met all of our criteria. Andrew has great attention to detail, excellent and consistent communication (which we greatly appreciated), and the ability to close a lease with our needs in mind. Trying to find our ideal location was really difficult for us to manage on our own. Partnering with Andrew is the only reason we got our new space. We could not recommend anyone more highly.”
Sharkey's Cuts for Kids (Waco, TX Franchisee) Dianna Worthington
“As first-time investors in a retail business, we found Chris to go above and beyond in answering our never-ending questions. Always quick to respond and provide answers, he walked us through what would have been an intimidating process with ease. We enjoyed working with him and highly recommend his services.”
Amsawa Holdings Inc. Aman Brar
“Thank you Rick (Gutierrez), we appreciate your integrity and honesty. That is the reason I love Texas. You are our main contact in Houston and I am sure we will close multiple deals in the future.”
Oldfield Family Limited Partnership Douglas Oldfield
“I hired Rick Gutierrez to sell our warehouse. The warehouse was difficult to sell because it was located next door to a Superfund site. Rick was able to get us a full price offer within the first 30 days. I also hired Rick to lease the empty spaces in our retail strip center, so it would sell for full value. Rick came up with creative ways to fully lease the spaces in the center. His advice enabled us to ultimately sell the strip center for a maximum value. I highly recommend hiring Rick Gutierrez if you're looking for a reliable trustworthy Real Estate Agent for your property needs.”
Washington Prime Kevin Jones, Leasing Rep
“In this economic climate, we look for the most unrelenting leasing people, the ones that aren't afraid to get out there and really shake the bushes, and who don't just wait for the phone to ring. In my opinion, RESOLUT RE is synonymous with aggressive shopping center leasing. We are extremely pleased with the results and look forward to continuing the relationship.”
WoodSpring Hotels Keith Jones, VP Development

Polar Clean Joseph P. Sergio, Ph. D.
“It was our pleasure to have worked with Dani Allison in leasing our new office space in the greater-Houston area. This was a time-sensitive move with many qualifications for evaluating sites. Dani did a fabulous job of timely communications and was very helpful in evaluating and negotiating a win-win agreement with our new Landlord. I strongly recommend her for these services and plan on working with her again in the future.”
Einstein Bagels | Caribou Coffee Cindy Frye, Director of Real Estate
“Central Texas is highly competitive for finding good locations for our brand, but RESOLUT RE has been ahead of the market every step of the way and has always presented us the best deals the market has to offer. Consequently, I am able to focus my attention and energies on my other projects, which is invaluable. I look forward to continuing working with the RS team for years to come.”

“As a business owner, negotiating to buy or lease a space for your business can be a hassle. You need an experienced and qualified agent to help you wade through the waters, and Chris G Flesner is that agent. He respects your time and business and will represent your interest to the best of his ability. I personally just signed a deal with his advice, and it was an experience.

“Do you want a deal or do you want THE deal? Benny Nguyen at RESOLUT RE finds THE right deal for you and your company. Mr. Nguyen took the time & diligence to learn about my company, financing and design concepts in order to guide me to the optimal location. Mr. Nguyen’s wisdom and patience were of immeasurable value as my team evaluated several carefully selected locations; he excelled at communication and was prudent in his negotiations. I was stuck between two locations; therefore, Mr. Nguyen created a 10-year projection spreadsheet to help me see the long term benefits of the superior location. I am set up for success and strongly recommend Mr. Nguyen and RESOLUT RE.”
CRAVE Hot Dogs and BBQ Salvatore & Samantha Rincione, Founders

“Kim has been awesome to work with. She has been very prompt and on top of everything from emails to directly contacting me to keep me in the loop with the landlord. She’s a huge help, educating me along the way. I can’t recommend her enough to anyone looking for a great commercial space for your needs.”

Freebirds World Burrito Keith Davis, CFO
“It is my pleasure to recommend RESOLUT RE’ tenant rep services. They did a fantastic job for me building out market plans to develop Houston, DFW and Austin, and then assigned its local teams to find sites within that plan. With their connections, quite a few of the sites were obtained that never hit the market. They were very hands on and extremely helpful in getting us the right real estate.    On one site (in Temple TX outside of Austin) that we wanted but lost out on, he set up a meeting with us and the developer, and with all their back-channel communications and hard work behind the scenes, we ended up getting the site. On another site, we couldn’t get the parking, and RESOLUT RE negotiated an exclusive parking agreement with the adjacent Office Depot for us as well as ... read more blocking other restaurants from using it. Another example RESOLUT RE creatively negotiated is we couldn’t get a site we wanted in Austin, as we were the second bidder, but RESOLUT RE knew our plans for growth in DFW, and the same developer had a site in DFW that we wanted to take down at some point in the following year, and RESOLUT RE created a two-site deal for us. I could go on, but you get the idea, they are creative, hard-working and very effective in getting the right real estate for your growth plans.”

“RESOLUT RE plays an instrumental role in our expansion plans. In a marketplace wrought with competition, they have demonstrated their “take no prisoners” approach to real estate solutions, just like their name implies. They know the marketplace, create strategic plans and never allow roadblocks to get in their way.

Our expansion plans would not look the way they do without the help of the smart, savvy and kind folks at RESOLUT RE.

Satellite Industries, Inc. John Babcock, Vice President, Finance
“Being an out-of-state company, my primary concern in finding a partner in Texas for our real estate purchase was to work with someone that I could rely on to provide the "latest and greatest" options for us to consider. The building we were looking for was not a common spec property and required a unique understanding of our company and objectives. I feel we found that and more in you. The deep industry knowledge and connections in the local market really made me feel comfortable that we had chosen the right partner to help us navigate through the process. You consistently provided feedback and communication to all parties and conducted yourself with the utmost integrity and customer care. I appreciate all the hard work you have put into servicing Satellite Industries and I look ... read more forward to future opportunities to work with you.”

As you are aware I was a broker for 18 years before moving to corporate real estate. I have been most impressed with the preparedness and professionalism of your team. Working with RESOLUT RE has been a wonderful, successful experience. My franchisees were challenged with very tight market conditions, and they were going through the site selection process for the very first time. The RESOLUT RE team handled these challenges with an impressive combination of patience, precision, and tenacity, each of which comes into play at key points of the expansion rollout. RESOLUT RE has become an extension of our corporate services team to our franchisees, and for that, I ... read more couldn’t have been happier!

Texas Cycle Werks Phillip Puzzo
“When my commercial real estate broker told me she was taking a new job, she referred me to Rob Eaves and Drew Smith. Upon our first meeting, I knew these were the guys to get it done. With only 6 months to move our retail shop, Rob and Drew took the helm and steered us in the right direction. Rob and Drew spent many hours with me attempting to find our needle in the haystack. As a small retail business in Austin, there are many challenges such as budget, square footage, and location. After scouring the Austin, Texas area, Rob and Drew aided in finding our gem of a location. The price was more than manageable, and the location speaks volumes to Rob and Drew's capabilities to satisfy their clients. I am looking forward to working with the RESOLUT RE Team when we open our second and ... read more third locations.”
