Client Testimonials

““Thank you for the great job in helping me find an additional location in 2009 for the Spokane Entrepreneurial Center. I lost track of how many different buildings you showed me until we finally came upon the right one. I really appreciate your perseverance, patience and professionalism on the buyer's side. And now, in 2014, I have experienced the same thing on the seller's side as you did a great job marketing, selling, and closing the sale of the Lorraine and Plechner Buildings. Mark, you have done a fantastic job representing me as both a buyer and seller of commercial real estate, and I would be happy to recommend you to anyone!” ”
- Steve Salvatori , Property Owner/Investor • Steve Salvatori

““With the advantage of the internet and a decent database, most real estate professionals do a decent job of circulating information to attract tenants. Mark has done so much more. His counsel, follow up and continual work to land tenants for me is more than I have experienced from other realtors.” ”
- Denny Christenson, A.I.A. • Denny Christenson & Associates

““I have known Mark for over 3 years and have the highest respect for him, both personally and professionally. He has one of our commercial buildings listed and has been successful in leasing a portion of it and is aggressively marketing the rest. Mark has a high level of organizational skills and is very adept at multi-tasking and working under pressure. He is a dedicated individual and takes his responsibility to his clients very seriously, often going the extra mile to finish projects or smooth the way for both buyers and sellers in the complex, often stressful world of real estate.” ”
- Joe Poire, Executive Director • Port of Whitman County

““I want to thank Mark for his perseverance and great work with us on our recent purchase of the Forrester Building for our new downtown winery production/retail facility. My partner and I were impressed with the work he initially conducted when assisting us with the lease of our wine tasting bar. We also very much appreciated the patience he exhibited with our long, drawn out search and negotiating process. We believe we obtained an outstanding deal. We know Mark helped us understand and review the Spokane market thoroughly due to his hard work and extensive experience with the downtown Spokane market.” ”
- Mark Wilkerson, Owner • Emvy Cellars

““My husband and I had a stroke of luck when we showed some interest in a building that Mr. Mark McLees was representing as a commercial agent. Given the fact I grew up in a commercial real estate family, I had some knowledge of the span of talent and integrity that a competent broker should possess.  From our first dealings with Mark, I knew that he was a “10” with regards to those characteristics. Not only did Mark handle all of the details beautifully, but he helped us forge a very creative deal, which surpassed our expectations. The best part of our relationship was that Mark clearly had our best interest in mind. Since our successful transaction with him, I have happily referred his name on to others. I know of one instance where he helped a friend get a terrific deal, successfully meeting all of his needs, as well. Although we have the  privilege of knowing many fine people in the world of commercial real estate, we will be happy to have Mark as our “go to” broker in the future, as we continue to expand.” ”
