Hi Theo, I would like to thank you and Ray White Commercial Oakleigh for your efforts and professionalism in securing a National tenant for our property. We engaged a local agency with no result for close to 12 months which thankfully didn't deter you. At all times you provided us with regular progress reports which enabled me to make informed decisions. Your responsiveness to our respective requests even outside of work hours was exemplary and you articulated in a manner that you kept us informed with clarity. Thank-you. Jim

To Who it May Concern, Our company was looking for several months for a leasehold factory with very specific requirements to suit our R & D projects. Despite searching for several months over a large area of the eastern suburbs in Melbourne we had no success in finding a facility to suit our requirements. After contacting Theo early November he found and showed us a factory that met all of our needs in the perfect location within 3 days. Our goal was to take possession by December 1, less than 3 weeks after Theo found our ideal facility. Not only did Theo find us a suitable facility, he also managed to put the lease together with all parties and hand over possession of the factory by our target date. We can thoroughly recommend Theo to any lessor or lessee who wishes to deal with a competent, efficient real estate executive who listens and then makes things happen. Yours Sincerely, Peter Wallace Insnrg Techne Pty Ltd

I must thank Ray White Commercial Oakleigh, and in particular Theo Karkanis for his outstanding work in obtaining a quality long term and National tenant for my commercial property. Being the first time I had rented a property I was so inexperienced and wary but the whole process was carefully explained and done without fuss. All the advice I received from Theo was balanced and fair and now that it is rented I can relax and leave the details to the property management department and start to enjoy my retirement. Can highly recommend Theo and Ray White Commercial Oakleigh, Thanks Theo!

To whom it may concern, I utilised the services of Theo Karkanis (Ray White Commercial) recently in selling one of my Commercial properties. The Sale had certain complexities, however Theo was able to work through those and achieve a very satisfactory result. I intend to utilise Theo again, for my Commercial Real Estate needs, and have no hesitation in recommending his work to others. Yours faithfully,

Hi Theo, Just wanted to say thanks to you and your team at "Ray White Commercial" in getting our property listed and leased so quickly. Being mum and dad investors the impact of an empty property is a genuine burden on our finances. Not being from the top end of town having the property leased in that time frame was outstanding. We had the property listed with another agent working in the local area with little serious response and asking for unachievable compromises. It seems having the national footprint gives a larger pool of potential renters. Getting the interest and a conversion in the time frame you guys did was fantastic. We will definitely be using "Ray White Commercial" in our future property investments. Thanks again, Jenny

Hello Theo Thank you for managing the securing of tenants for our commercial factory in Oakleigh. Right from the word “go’ you were tenacious and driven and you never lost sight of the end goal. As you know we had the property listed with another agent for some time prior with no success in securing a tenant. You kept us well informed and continually made proactive efforts in order to secure a tenant in a timely manner. Your negotiations with those tenants and ourselves were always realistic and professional leading us to the stage where we had very suitable tenants in the property in a time frame that we were comfortable with. We look forward to recommending you and working with you in the future. Kind Regards

Moving our real estate requirements to Ray White and in particular to Theo was a breath of fresh air. The regular updates on the sale of our property and reporting was critical in getting an understanding of how our property would perform on auction day. The final meeting prior to auction with Theo and Paul, was also very informative and inspiring and gave us the level of confidence required. Dealing with Theo and the rest of the team at Ray White, has changed my perspective about Real Estate agents and I would have no hesitation and engaging them once gain or recommending them to others. Keep up the good works guys !
