What our clients are saying

Over the years, we’ve had a lot of happy clients. Here’s what they have to say about our defeasance, yield maintenance and interest rate hedging services, as well as the overall experience they had working with us.

I would like to compliment your staff for the efficient and professional manner in which you handled the defeasance of 18 of our properties sold to a major REIT. The coordination between attorneys, servicers, buyer and seller takes significant effort in order to obtain the result all parties were expecting and your role was key to the successful outcome of this complex process.

Gayle Benson

CFO of Diversified Investments

Thank you for your efficient organization and wonderful work done orchestrating the defeasance of my conduit debt. No matter where we looked, whether it was referrals from other lawyers or referrals from fellow self-storage operators we always ended up at Commercial Defeasance. This timely flow of information and sharing of data, executed with military precision, reassured me the defeasance process was in good hands. Much like how an Olympic athlete makes their sport seem effortless, the actual defeasance went perfect. On time and below cost, I couldn't have been more pleased with the wonderful work of Commercial Defeasance.

Robert J. Fleck

President, Canadian Self-Storage Association

My firm has engaged you as its defeasance consultant for more than 15 multi-state transactions. Your professionalism and vast knowledge has put our clients at ease during each defeasance transaction.

Claudia L. Crocker

Attorney at Law

You stepped in, actively ran the process as promised, and closed my transaction in a mere four days. While others might claim to manage the process, you actually did it.

Yehuda Netanel

President, Gilad Development, Inc.

This was one of the simplest financial transactions I have participated in during my 25 years in the real estate industry. All I had to do was sit back and watch. The process took only 2 weeks and was handled in a very professional manner.

Lionel Wazny

CFO, Concert Real Estate Corporation, Vancouver, BC

We appreciated your patience as you explained very clearly each step of a highly technical process and made yourself available when we needed you to answer questions or provide information. Your efforts made the process seem flawless as all of the dominos of the closing process feel into place.<

David Hubbs

Director Income Properties of The Garrett Group

The transaction was critical to the company as it achieved a very important strategic financial goal. The timing of the transaction was also critical due to a limited window available to complete the transaction. Our transaction took place without a hitch and every aspect of the transaction was addressed down to the last detail.

Ronald Max

COO of Gibraltar Holdings

I will absolutely refer you whenever word of a defeasance comes my way. If I ever need to go through a defeasance transaction again, I would not want it to be handled by anybody but the best - Commercial Defeasance, LLC.

Your ability to respond to our numerous requests…as well as keeping all of the parties in place while the timing changed…evidenced not only an ability to keep a transaction on track but to do so in an efficient manner as well.

Andrew S. Levine

I could not imagine having to do another defeasance without Commercial Defeasance, as you truly make the term "Defease With Ease" an understatement.

Shelley Marcus

Attorney at The Marcus Law Firm

The first time I spoke to [a deal manager] was at least 7:00pm EST and both my seller and I were very happy to hear him answer as we needed immediate information. The work ethic didn’t change throughout the whole process up to the successful closing. The efforts, skill and overall positive demeanor don’t go unnoticed, as the property closed in a timely fashion as a direct result of all his efforts and effective communications.
