Client Testimonials

"We retained Jack’s professional services to show us available office space options, as we were seriously considering relocating our office. We were pleased with our previous experience working with Jack so we asked him to assist us once again in our search for an office space that best suited our firm. We were delighted with our find (new space) and to have secured very competitive lease terms and conditions. We referred Jack to another firm in our industry and they had a favorable experience with him as well. We look forward to working with Jack again in the future."

Lori Hoch, COO, Cortina Asset Management

"On the occasions where Jack has helped us relocate, we significantly improved our spaces and rent. Being extremely understanding of our special needs as a nonprofit organization, which of course allowed us to invest more in our mission rather than paying rent. We were very pleased with the terms and conditions negotiated while working with Jack."

Greg Hollinger, State Director of Operations, March of Dimes

"After purchasing Armitage Research, LLC , I retained Jack to help me understand the office marketplace and guide me through the lease renewal/relocation process. I needed to review alternate office spaces to consider whether there might be a more advantageous location. The process was new to me so I needed and experienced tenant representative advisor on my side of the transaction. After reviewing several attractive alternatives, we ultimately decided to pursue a lease renewal in our current space. I appreciate that Jack was able to help favorably negotiate the rents and other conditions, his experience helped balance the field. I am pleased to recommend him to others in a similar situation."

Mark Shelstad, Owner, Armitage Research, LLC

"I met Jack 25+ years ago on the basketball court. I was impressed with Jack’s knowledge of the game and his coaching abilities. As our relationship grew I saw Jack transform his basketball coaching skills to the commercial real estate services market. When our company was looking to relocate I thought of Jack and his services. Jack has assisted us in two separate lease transactions. He helped us save time and money on our office move and also on our lease renewal. He coached and guided us through the lease renewal/relocation negotiation process. I highly recommend Jack and QCRE to assist others as they consider whether to whether to renew their lease or to move to a different space. Thanks Jack! You were a delight to work with!"

Joe Sweeney, Managing Director, Corporate Financial Services

"We are very pleased with the conscientious and professional capabilities that Jack brought to the table as we were seeking to relocate our offices. He was able to secure great space in an excellent building. He negotiated a competitive lease arrangement which included a number of months of free rent. I am happy to recommend Jack to any friend or acquaintance who might be in the market for commercial office space."

William J. Kalmer, CLU, William J. Kalmer & Assocs.

"Jack helped us relocate our Milwaukee office to a new space and then helped us with the renewal in the same new office a few years later. He has helped us relocate our Green Bay office as well. He is a trusted advisor who has helped me a number of times and I have been very satisfied with the services and knowledge he has brought to these negotiations on our behalf. I have recommended Jack to on our behalf. I have recommended Jack to several of my client customers."

Dan Pelchen, Managing Director, RCM Technologies

"Jack and Scott represented us on two different occasions and helped us understand the other space options in the marketplace as well as what kind of concessions and rents we could expect to receive. Their guidance and direction with regard to our two lease renewal negotiations were informative, beneficial to our firm financially and a great experience. I was so pleased with their involvement that I recommended them to my neighboring tenant who ended up using them and had a favorable experience too. I will absolutely continue to use and recommend the Quinlevan’s service in the future."

Fred Pramenko, Partner, VIP Sports Marketing

"We retained Jack to help us look at alternate office space options in downtown Milwaukee. He guided us through the process and after touring a number of different options we focused on one that worked very well for our firm. We ended up with a great corner space with tremendous views. In addition, we received very competitive rental rates and concessions and a better parking situation in this new space. We are very pleased with the new space and for Jack’s assistance in helping us find this space and putting the transaction together for us."

Attorney Bill Reddin, Partner, Reddin & Singer, SC

"We do business throughout the US and have several regional offices around the country. We have had an issue with parking our service vehicles and lifts in a location after entering into our lease agreement. As a result we were interested in involving a commercial real estate professional on our side of the lease transaction in the Houston, TX marketplace where we had outgrown our space. We retained Jack who found and retained an experienced broker in Houston to located buildings in the area we were interested in having our office in. Together they found us a great new space with plenty of windows (or old space had few windows), which allowed us to keep our service vehicles and lifts on site that had a much better location for our business. This space was a huge upgrade from our previous space. The building was modified the way we wanted. The rental rates were very competitive as were the concessions negotiated. Our staff and Operations Manager in Houston are very pleased with the new space. I am happy that the process went so well that I did not have to involve myself in the process as much as I normally do and that we did not have to pay for Jack’s services, the building owner did. I look forward to using Jack’s services again."

Will Stumpe, President & CEO, Staybright Electric

"When we purchased this firm one of our desires was to find better office space for our firm in a more dynamic area. We hired Jack to help us review our options. We looked in the suburbs as well as downtown. We ended up finding a great space in downtown Milwaukee. We secured a huge amount of free rent, received some historic tax credits and got very competitive rents as well. The new location was well received by our staff and helpful in the recruitment of new employees as well. We were very pleased with the space and terms that Jack helped us secure. He was a pleasure to work with."

Tim Kennedy, Former President & COO, PKWare, Inc Electric

"Jack helped us secure a new location in the Racine area as well as helped us renew and expand our lease in our Wauwatosa office. In fact Jack was very gracious as we expanded into his own office forcing him to find another place to work out of. He was experienced, a pleasure to work with and worked with our corporate brokerage counterparts out of Miami to help us relocate to a larger space on a different floor since we were unable to expand in our previous space. He did a great job for us!"

Phyllis LoCicero, Senior General Manager, Vitas Innovative Hospice

"When I purchased this practice I got the office space as part of the purchase. I renewed the lease the first time on my own at very very high rental rates, with no free rent, no improvements to the space and no broker fee. When that lease was expiring I retained Jack to help me look at other buildings in the area and negotiate with our landlord on my behalf. After looking at the market we ended up renewing our lease in our current building. Jack got us free rent, a significantly lower rental rate, new carpet and paint throughout our space and the building owner paid Jack’s fee. Jack’s experience helped us to know what to ask for from our landlord and other owners and we are thrilled to have worked with him in this negotiation. We highly recommend him to others looking for assistance with their office space negotiation."

Wayne Metzger, DC, Metzger Chiropractic

"We have had on-going issues with our previous building’s heating and air conditioning systems which led us to decide that we were likely going to relocate to a new office. We wanted to work with an experienced broker who could help us review different space options without having to find them, call them and then view them all ourselves - dominating all of our time. We hired Scott and Jack and they saved us time by identifying a large number of other offices for us to consider and then found a real diamond in the rough for us. This space was in a better location, in a better building and configured in a way that did not require any changes. In addition, we got free parking and reduced our monthly rent by moving to this new space. We are very happy with the space and the rents negotiated by Scott and Jack. In addition, the new location is easy to find for our prospective staff members. I highly recommend Scott and Jack to other tenants looking to relocate to another office."

Howard Caplan, COO, Nurses & Medical Staffing

"Jack and his team have been at our side on a vast number of Milwaukee area real estate transactions over the past fifteen years. Jack’s devotion to providing superior service and tailored solutions to our real estate needs keeps us coming back to him for guidance. He has been a trusted resource on a variety of assignments ranging from straight forward lease deals to a number of larger-scale building acquisitions. He has also provided us valued counsel on a long-term, high-profile corporate lease renegotiation. In addition to our local activity, Jack has connected us with the right brokers to assist us with transactions in other markets beyond Wisconsin. No matter what unique circumstance or need we have had Jack's working knowledge of the commercial real estate market and process has been a proven asset to us."

Pat McGlinn, Director of Real Estate & Facilities Planning, Extendicare Health Services, Inc.

"We retained Jack to help us on a number of projects. He helped us purchase a couple of different land parcels to build our new acute care skilled nursing facility in Greenfield. In addition, he helped us identify and select an architect and contractor for the project. The project was developed on time and under budget. He also helped us purchase an adjacent land parcel near a facility of ours in northern Wisconsin. In addition, we used Jack to perform some medical office building survey work to compare rental rates in the marketplace. Jack was a versatile and reliable real estate resource for me and GranCare, while at Trammell Crow Company, in the Wisconsin market."
