“I hired Anthony to help my husband and I sell our industrial warehouse in Downtown Los Angeles. Anthony was able to achieve the highest price in the area for our building. In fact, we set a record. He acted with complete professionalism, and had excellent communication through the marketing and escrow period. His knowledge of Downtown Los Angeles and the industrial market is superior. If you have a commercial property in the Los Angeles area, I would highly recommend working with Anthony.” Jennie Kim/President, Creative Design Works Inc.
“Anthony knew my property and the local market extremely well. Shortly after signing with him, he found a motivated and financially strong buyer for my type of property who paid full asking price. This was a property that had sat on the market for six months with another broker who was unable to sell it or generate interest from appropriate buyers. Following the accepted offer, Anthony helped guide the process smoothly through closing. Highly recommended!” Randy W.
“I have worked with Anthony Behar on real estate projects for over 10 years. Anthony is one of the hardest working, most tenacious, knowledgable and trustworthy real estate specialists I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I have recommended Anthony to others who needed top notch talent. I have asked Anthony to help my own family members, including selling and replacing properties in 1031 tax exchanges. For my business, Anthony helped us find a new site for our manufacturing operations, and over the years helped us acquire or sell various properties. In all projects I knew that if Anthony would take the assignment, I could be confident of the best outcome possible.” John Brooks, President: Adams & Brooks Inc.
“My family has worked with Anthony for over 5 years. He has always been very knowledgeable on the market, and very responsive when needed. Anthony has helped lease our industrial warehouse twice, both times with great tenants. Providing value and being a great resource to his clients is where Anthony shines.” Corina Tieves, DTLA property owner
“Anthony helped me find two different Triple Net (NNN) properties for a 1031 Exchange. I hadn’t completed this type of transaction before and Anthony explained how the process worked, found a variety of properties all over the country for me to choose from, and helped me find an attorney who guided me through the strict IRS regulations for this type of purchase. Although my deals were by no means Anthony’s largest, I always felt that my questions and timelines were his first priority. He also worked very well with the other players in this process, including attorneys, mortgage brokers, and the sellers’ real estate agents. I can’t say enough good things about working with Anthony Behar. I now have two strong properties in two different states. If you want a real estate broker who is a clear communicator and a pleasure to work with, I highly recommend Anthony.” Christine M., Property Owner
“No words can express the relief I feel at closing the deal in 2018. I truly appreciate all the effort you put in to make it happen.” Jim Lane, California Apple Products
“I hired Anthony to help our family sell our industrial warehouse in Downtown Los Angeles. I have known Anthony for many years, and always knew he would be the “right” broker to market and sell our property. Anthony guided us along the way to a successful sale fairly quickly. Additionally he helped us negotiate a sale-lease back. If you’re thinking of selling or leasing your commercial property and want an experienced and trustworthy agent, Anthony is the right choice.” Nancy Bittan, Henry Hanger Company
“Anthony and Brad of Major Properties were recommended to me as the “go to” brokers in Downtown Los Angeles. I wanted to sell a commercial warehouse that was in my family for decades but needed the right brokers. I was very happy with my choice. Anthony and Brad represented my needs, found the right buyer, and had excellent communication throughout the deal.” Marcia L., Property Owner
