I have been in the apartment business for over 35 years and consider you, Bill, to be the best advisor I have worked with. You are a gentleman, honest, trustworthy and very knowledgeable in your field of expertise. I appreciated so much the way that you kept me informed all the way to the closing and helped me so much with the due diligence documents, the loans and exchanges. I highly recommend you and your firm, ACRE, to any person needing apartment, financing or retail services. Please have any potential clients contact me as a reference. Thank you!
B.W., Apartment Owner and Escrow Officer
From the first presentation, we knew ACRE and Bill’s team would represent us in the sale of our family’s apartment portfolio. Bill walked us through the process and discussed with us the current marketplace in great detail. We had all five properties sold within 4 months and ended up buying three retail buildings with Bill and his team at ACRE. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We wish to express our sincere appreciation for the job that both Diana Fusina and Bill Anderson performed selling our property at Louisiana Street. We are grateful for their persistence and hard work during this critical time in the real estate market. Their determination in acquiring interested buyers and their constant communications, keeping us updated throughout the transaction, gave us confidence that no matter how difficult the process seemed, we were going to be successful in selling the property. We were delighted they were able to make the sale within six months.

Dear Diana and Bill, Thank you both so much for listing and selling my apartment complex at 4173 36th Street. I was hesitant to sell because I didn’t know how I could continue to receive the income I had been. After meeting with you I was impressed on your professionalism. I had been approached by other agents in the past and was annoyed by their persistence in wanting to “get a listing” and seemed to have no concern with what I wanted. You had a solution for me which made sense. I was ready to be out of the apartment owner business but I wasn’t familiar with my options. The 1031 exchange into the triple net lease was perfect for me. The sale and subsequent purchase went so smoothly. The fact that you kept me informed on a daily basis of the progress of the sale and escrows really impressed me. I hope I can do business again with you both soon.
S.H., Hall Family Trust
Dear Diana and Bill, I just wanted to express my thanks for your assistance in getting me through a situation at a difficult time in my life. I needed to sell the 10-unit apartment building that I co-owned with two other partners, one of them being my father who had just passed away. The sale was necessary in order to fulfill the requirements of his estate settlement. If you recall, this October 2008 timing could not have been more economically precarious. I had received nothing but ‘doom and gloom’ real estate advice… that is, until your call came in! I am so grateful for your optimism, energy, expertise, persistence, contacts, experience, etc… All of your wonderful qualities brought forth results beyond my expectations. Thank you not only for the quick sale, but also for the ease in which you helped me navigate the twists and turns involved in negotiating a financially beneficial outcome. My results ‘defied’ the economic atmosphere at that time. Thanks again for a rewarding experience. I look forward to working with you again.

This letter is to recommend the services of Chris Robinson and Dylan Wright of ACRE Investment Real Estate Services. My first contact with Chris and Dylan come after on unsuccessful yearlong marketing campaign with another broker on a trust property in Ocean Beach. After reviewing their impressive marketing plan and ideas, I decided to give them a shot on this property. his property has some definite challenges, but their guidance and information have proved to be invaluable. Within two months of listing the property with ACRE, the property went into escrow. Both Chris and Dylan continue to be on top of all deadlines and are great about follow ups and reminders with all parties concerned. Even my beneficiary on this case, has been pleased with their professionalism.
After the hard work and dedication that ACRE provided on our initial listing, I decided to award them two additional listings in Point Loma and the Mission Valley area for a trust that is liquidating. They provided me with another great marketing package for both properties. We had multiple offers on one of the listings within a week. They again provided me with personal service and walked me through all the offers presented and gave their recommendations and reasoning behind them.
I would highly recommend the services of ACRE Investment Real Estate Services because of their professionalism, hard work, personal attention and ability to deliver. I feel very confident doing business with them because they have my client’s best interests at heart.
Please feel free to call my office with any questions.

Dear Mr. Robinson, Thank you for assisting me in the sale of the Rustwood Villas. I was satisfied with the outcome of the sale and was impressed with your ability to position the asset correctly & generate qualified written offers in a timely fashion. As the listing agent, you exercised skills in qualifying this Buyer, building momentum from the start & strategizing the counter offer responses with me. I also appreciated your diligence in responding to movements in the transaction in a timely fashion and your commitment to ensure that my best interests were protected. I strongly recommend other apartment Sellers seriously consider using your services as your approach was precise, aggressive and yielded distinctive results.
I wish you the best into the future.
S.K., Owner
I recently had the opportunity to work with Chris Robinson from your ACRE office. I have worked in the real estate field for over 40 years. During this time I have seldom found a young man that meets the high standards that Chris has demonstrated during our association. You are fortunate to have a young man like Chris and I have told Chris that when we are able to sell again, he will definitely be the one I would like to work with.
R.V., Director of Dispositions
I am writing this letter as recommendation to use the services of Chris Robinson in your real estate matters. We were the owners of a 13 unit apartment complex in Chula Vista for 34 years and it was also our home. We were very apprehensive about going through the whole process of selling our property but we needed to get out of the management role. Chris was helpful is addressing our concerns, managing the details of the transaction & truly protecting our best interests. He was always there for us when we needed him. We appreciated his professionalism & support during the process and are especially satisfied with his marketing team, offers that were generated & net proceeds we ended up with. Keep up the good work and best wishes for the future!

While working with Bill during the time that he was my listing agent for the sale of my $2.2 Million dollar multi-family property, he has exceeded my expectations as a real estate broker for his thoroughness, intelligence, wisdom, precision, knowledge of his field and integrity. He is also a really great, down to earth guy and a true professional.

San Diego Apartment Investor
We initially contacted Craig regarding the sale of the property and that is when he pointed out through a review of our operating statements that the current management company was over charging us for services we didn’t need or use. He developed a plan to turn the cash flow of the property around through better vendor management, improved on-site management, elimination of unneeded expenses, and increased rents and occupancy. We see Craig as the not only a great property manager, but the ideal broker. He isn’t the typical broker just trying to get a listing. He really understands apartment ownership and management, and he truly comes across as an advisor who will tell you how to maximize profits. If you have a stable property needing continued management, or if you have a problem situation such as we had, we highly recommend Craig for the job.

My family has been involved in multi-family rental property for over 60 years in Southern California. Recently, now as a solo owner, I began my first 1031 exchange. After talking with my family & additional research I contacted Matt Brothers. Very happy I did. Matt brought me multiple offers at the price I wanted for my 14-unit property. He eased my nerves and got me through closing. Matt also guided me during the exchange process. Walking me through the selection of a great exchange NNN property within my budget & all other parameters I wanted. Matt was great to work with. No hidden fees, clear cut costs (upfront). No surprises. He advised, he didn’t push. Top notch from start to finish. Thanks again, Matt.

I’ve worked with Matt Brothers on several occasions, and each time Matt really delivered.  He is thorough, and a true problem solver that finds clever and workable solutions to complex commercial transactions.  He’s very good at suggesting the right negotiating strategy which in turn allows me to accomplish my goals.  I’m an attorney and a real estate broker whose been involved in 100’s of transactions, yet I still go to Matt to find the best opportunities and sound advice.
A.Z., Apartment Owner/Broker/Attorney
I have known Matt Brothers for about 10 years and have worked with him in multiple transactions. The most recent one being a fitness center located in San Diego, which was a very complex transaction because the Seller wanted to close in a very short period of time. Matt did an excellent job providing me with all the due diligence materials and information on the property, and he was able to balance the needs of both the seller and myself as the buyer. He handled the transaction with professionalism, getting the job done precisely from beginning to end, and very quickly. From my experience, Matt is very professional and works productively and hard to get deals done. He makes it easy and is enjoyable to work with.
