I would like to thank you for your assistance in finding my company rental garage space. Your hard work and communication skills easily saved my company well over 50% market value and you are clearly an asset to Choice Realty and the real estate community of the area. I look forward to working with you again and would gladly recommend you to others in need of real estate services. Again, a sincere thank you, from myself and my staff.

Dear Choice Realty,
It has been my distinct pleasure to work with Jonathan Lee. He has been a wonderful blessing to me and our team at Esther Victory Ministries for Christ. When we began searching for a location that would be suitable for our outreach center it seemed as if we would never find it. We met Jonathan and he worked with us on a very personal level and helped us find the perfect location.
As we embark on this journey we invite you to join us at our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Grand Opening Celebration on October 25th from 12:00 – 2:00 at 1209 Central Avenue in Summerville. There will be lots of food, live music and great door giveaways. Please plan to attend if at all possible.
Esther Victory Ministries will provide emergency groceries to families in need, school supplies to children and help provide essential medications to senior citizens who can not afford them in the Summerville/Ladson area.
Thank you and sincerely,
Esther Victory Ministries for Christ

I want to thank you for your wonderful support and assistance in finding our new Charleston Office Space. We are all so excited about the opportunity to move into a location that meets our needs for space, visibility and a very professional environment. It was obvious from the beginning that you had our best interest in mind and were willing to work to help us find just the right office that would fit into our budget and meet our needs.
As a non-profit organization, we must constantly work to keep our costs as low as possible and you certainly helped us to accomplish this by negotiating a 43% savings off our first year occupancy cost, 15 days of free rent and a free sign! You also helped us to find the right space before the renewal of our previous lease which would have been costly for us. We really appreciate the opportunity to have new carpet and tile installed at no cost to our organization.
Jonathan, I really appreciate your support and assistance and would welcome the opportunity to recommend you to others who are looking to relocate. Thank you again for helping us to continue our mission in a professional, safe and comfortable environment.

My name is Jens Franzen. I am a chiropractor who just moved back from Ireland to the Charleston area. Even though the economy had changed here since the last time I lived here I was quite surprised how difficult it still was to find the right place for my new business.
I thought it would be quite easy to find commercial property but I soon found out I was completely off..at least when it came to Goose Creek. I knew Goose Creek was the area I wanted to open my new business in and I tried to do most of the ground work myself, demographics, looking at different locations, negotiating and much more.
Soon however, I realized that I needed help from someone who was up on the market and also could help me negotiating a good deal. I happened to get in contact with Jonathan Lee in January this year and he was very knowledgeable but foremost I appreciated his genuine concern to help me even if it meant walking an extra mile to get what I were looking for.
Jonathan helped me every step of the way and I ended up in a great location in the heart of Goose Creek. Even though it was some kinks which needed to be ironed out, Jonathan Lee handled everything with outmost precision from a business point of view and helped me to get what I was looking for. He also helped protect my interest in finalizing contracts, etc.
I would recommend anyone to use Jonathan Lee’s services since I feel he is honest, helpful and always willing to look out for his clients first.
If anyone wants to contact me further on how Jonathan Lee has helped me feel free to contact me at 843 437 5533.

We enjoyed working with you and Choice Realty. It was amazing how efficient and professional you were in regards to our lease. Within a week, you negotiated our lease, reduced occupancy costs by 21%, and provided our company with flexibility in terms of expansion and renewal options. WOW! Not only did you save us money, but also eliminated the hassle associated with real estate transactions.
If need be, we will definitely use you in the future. In the mean time though, we are recommending you to everyone.
Thank you; we couldn’t have succeeded without you!

To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this letter in reference to service that I received from Choice Realty. I chose Choice Realty to handle my real estate needs in looking for an office for my growing business. Mr. Lee was very diligent in handling my transactions. He located and negotiated the lease of my new office within 45 days and reduced occupancy costs by 20 percent. Mr. Lee also provided my company with flexibility in terms of expansion, renewals, and termination options. He was very professional and courteous when dealing with all my needs in this matter. I have been very happy with the service that Mr. Lee and Choice Realty provided me while searching out a location for my new office that was convenient and affordable. Choice Realty took the hassle out of looking for a location for my new office and provided me with outstanding customer service. I would highly recommend Choice Realty in handling any real estate transaction in the future.

I want to thank you for your much needed help locating office space during my recent visit to Charleston. It is very hard to find realtors willing to help find small office space. You not only helped me locate a space within one day, you took a personal interest in negotiating a rate that was 25% less than the property owner was asking. Also, your prompt handling of the lease allowed me to focus on the many other things that I had going on.
If you ever need to use me as a reference feel free to contact me or have any of your potential clients contact me.

Thank you SO much for the fantastic services you have provided Telogical Systems as you helped us find a new office and successfully negotiate attractive terms. Throughout the process, I have been impressed by your…
-Knowledge of the local real estate market,
-Professionalism and follow-through,
-Sensitivity to our particular wants and needs,
-Expertise in commercial real estate law, and
-Attention to detail as you carefully reviewed the lease.
On that last point, your knowledge of commercial real estate law not only impressed our attorney, but resulted in both significant savings in the near term and less risk in the long term.
The bottom line: you delivered extraordinary service to Telogical Systems and we are truly grateful. If I can ever serve as a reference, please don’t hesitate to call on me!

We now have office space to grow into and residual lease income. (WellFound, Technology Company)
