Working with Bridgewater, Shane Billings, and Kori Billings was a wonderful experience. Both Shane and Kori were actively involved with the process every step of the way, assisting all parties, including the bank, wherever they could to make sure the closing went as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking representation in selling their business or buying a new one.
We had tried, unsuccessfully, to sell our equipment rental business along with the real estate for 3 years . . . we had had it listed with two different agencies, with no results. A like business in a neighboring town had the same problem, so we were quite surprised when we learned that after obtaining a different broker, the business had a buyer. We asked for the name of the broker and that’s how we discovered Kori and Shane Billings. From the moment we met with them, we felt comfortable and confident with them. Their approach to marketing us was much more professional and thorough. Shortly after signing with them, the pandemic hit us, and we thought our chances to sell were over. Imagine our surprise when Kori and Shane produced an interested and qualified buyer! Certainly, they have gone over and above what our expectations were, taking the stress off of us and presenting our business in the very best possible way, and representing our interests in working with the buyer’s lender. We absolutely recommend Kori and Shane Billings at Bridgewater Commercial Real Estate if you are truly interested in either selling or purchasing commercial real estate.
We are so excited that Kori Billings helped us purchased our first commercial property. She was incredibly professional and made sure were well informed throughout the process. This was our first experience buying commercial and did not know what to expect. Kori was a breathe of fresh air. I highly recommend you use Bridgewater Commercial Real Estate and ask for Kori.
I’ve had the privilege of seeing Dee in action on several occasions, and if you want to have a successful and smooth commercial real estate transaction you’re going to want to have him on your team. He’s well recognized in the industry, and his tact and professionalism can’t be beat. Dee sets clear expectations for his clients and delivers on his promises. He’s accessible throughout the entire process, and helps parties on both sides of the transaction so everyone walks away more than pleased. Thanks for all that you do, Dee.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Bridgewater Commercial Real Estate. My business is Triple M Video Productions LLC. I provided a virtual tour of a warehouse they are selling on 28th St. N in St. Petersburg. I met with both Kris Dumke and Dee Maret during the process and they both were professional and friendly throughout it all. Their knowledge is unsurpassed as well and you will find that out the instant you work with them. Just an absolute honor to work with both of them and they know exactly what it takes to succeed in commercial real estate. If you are looking for commercial real estate to buy or sell do yourself a favor and work with Bridgewater Commercial! They are simply the best in the business!
Shane did a great job in securing a tenant for our commercial building. The property had some constraints but Shane over came these issues to meet the needs of the tenant.
We have been working with Kori Billings for a few years in Pinellas County, and she is probably my favorite commercial leasing agent I’ve worked with in almost 20 years. She goes above and beyond, even when not required of her. High attention to detail, very responsive, great negotiator, and she’s brought 4-5 new leases over to my office building since Covid hit us all.
Great people who make you feel like family. They are great at communication and truly look out for you and your needs. Class act team at Bridgewater!
Kori was amazing. She was on point, very knowledgeable and very responsible. Loved working with her, I highly recommend her hands down!!
Shane Billings helped us buy an office building and subsequently leasing it out. Both times, Shane has been very proactive and provided us with lot of inputs. Shane is very quick to respond to any query and sometimes went above and beyond realtor duties to find us additional information. I highly recommend Shane Billings!
Shane Billings was a pleasure to do business with. He is accessible, courteous, knowledgeable, and thorough. I would recommend Shane heartily to those seeking CRE services.
Shane helped my company find the perfect warehouse space that we needed for our production. The warehouse is a brand new 70,570 SF warehouse with a long term lease. Shane worked with us on several warehouses in the area until we finally found the correct one. It was a year long process with lots of negotiation. Shane was clearly on our side helping us the entire way. Shane provided numerous cash flow analyses to assist with our investors. I highly recommend Shane Billings for your real estate needs.
Shane Billings provided excellent service in finding us the right office to lease. After requesting information for numerous options, and visiting office spaces, we asked Shane for his thoughts…he summarized all of the various features, and provided cash flow analyses for each space option. Without Shane, we would not have found the best option for our needs! Thank you Shane! We’ll call you when our lease is up!
Shane did a great job helping our business find shop space quickly and affordably. I definitely would recommend working with Bridgewater to anyone.
“Kori and Shane, I want to again tell you how much I appreciate the work you did to make the sale of my True Value Equipment Rental business and real estate happen. I was impressed from the beginning with your work from the presentation package to Shane’s extra effort on the environment review. Thanks again!”
This was my first commercial property purchase, a Family Dollar store, and involved a 1031 intermediary. Shane wore many shoes and went over and beyond his real estate role. He was a true partner and looked out for my best interest. He advised me against staying under contract on a medical office property after key facts came to light due to research conducted on his own accord. Shane has great follow through, is responsive, and is objective/factual. He was a pleasure to do work with. I would do business again with Shane in a heartbeat and have already recommended him to a friend who has engaged Shane for his real estate search.
Shane Billings was exceptional! He is responsive, professional, and very knowledgeable about environmental issues which dominated the sale of our property. We never had to ask a question twice since he always responded quickly and with our needs in mind. I would use Shane again and again. He is a rare find in the brokerage business and a true partner. He was not looking for a quick sale….but the BEST sale. Thumbs up!
I had the pleasure of working with Shane Billings on a complex real estate transaction that involved an environmental impaired property in Tampa. Shane’s background and experience as an environmental professional was instrumental in successfully resolving the competing concerns of the parties, and he also was able to satisfy the concerns of the environmental regulatory agencies in a proactive and timely manner. I will not hesitate to involve Shane in other difficult real estate transactions.
I used Bridgewater Commercial Real Estate to find a location for our new office in Lakeland. They did it quickly and we were in that new office within 30-days! I can’t say enough great things about Bridgewater, and the realtor, Shane Billings. I’ve known Shane for over 10-years, and he is just an all around great person!
I recently worked with Kris Dumke on a real estate deal and had a great experience. He was extremely professional, diligent, and thorough. Being a mortgage lender, I have the opportunity to work with a lot of terrific real estate agents, and Kris and his team were terrific. I have also met many of the other Bridgewater agents and have nothing but great things to say about them. I highly recommend Kris and Bridgewater for all of your real estate needs!
I had the good fortune to have been referred to Shane for finding a medical office to purchase. He is professional and thorough in his work. I had two other realtors but it was Shane who found multiple offices within my search parameters including my future office the day it was put on the market. This is even more impressive because the other Realtors were from my area in Clearwater while he is in Wesley Chapel. I highly recommend Shane to anyone looking for a Realtor to find the commercial property they are looking for.
Kori is a true professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of Real Estate. She helped us through the process of selecting and buying our first commercial property. Her deal analysis, attention to details and communication throughout the process were outstanding. She is very patient in answering all questions and concerns. She shares with her customers all the pros and cons that might impact the decision not only short term but long term as well. Most of all, what sets her apart is her post sale customer service. She will call and follow up with you months after the transaction is completed to make sure you are all set and to let you know that if you need any additional help she is there. Dealing with real estate agents in last few years I can say that this is a rare and valuable quality. We look forward to working with Kori on many more projects in the future.
Dee Maret goes above and beyond the norm to be helpful and professional in his real estate transactions. He is very knowledgeable of the market, the trends and the process needed from start to finish. As a residential real estate consultant, I need a great commercial real estate professional to refer business to and Dee is my go-to guy. Thanks Dee for taking great care of the customers I send your way!
The Bridgewater Commercial team is a phenomenal to work with! Their service is outstanding, extremely easy to work with. I would highly recommend using them as they are a very knowledgeable and professional team!
Kris Dumke goes above and beyond your expectations. Also, combined with Dee’s years of expertise, this team delivers a great level of professionalism, knowledge and service!
Kris and Dee are very knowledgeable, trustworthy, and communicate effectively. Awesome company!!! Awesome team!!!
