Testimonials

  • Dear Terry,
    Thank you for your assistance in adding over one million dollars of value in less than six months to our property in Englewood Florida.

    Your aggressive leasing strategies proved to be valuable for our portfolio of properties in Southwest Florida allowing us maximize our return in Englewood and develop our Publix anchored shopping center with creditable tenants that allowed us to secure aggressive long term financing and the lowest possible cap rates when we sold the property.

    In using other firms before and after using your services we can truly say that the results produced by Merritt Realty Corporation and its associates were some of the best results while maintaining the highest level of professionalism ethics we have ever benefited from.

    In closing we would welcome working with and would be happy to refer you and your company Merritt Realty Corporation.

    Sincerely,
    Alliant Partners, LLC

  • Dear Terry,

    August 1st will be the 2 month anniversary of my personal injury law firm. This letter of gratitude and appreciation is two months delinquent. I came to you in mid May with the daunting task of finding a lease location for my new business-and moving into it-within a two week time frame.

    I am most thankful for your personal knowledge of the Venice area commercial market, your personal attention, your tenacity in dealing with property owners and other brokers, and your patience in putting up with all my requests. It is rare in this day and economy to find a professional with impeccable work ethic and honesty, who possesses a sincere desire to strive and deliver exactly what his clients are searching for. You spent many hours with me in person, and by phone, keeping me totally informed and because of your efforts my nearly impossible goal of settling into an office in 2 weeks was accomplished!

    I couldn't have done it without your direction and support. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to other potential clients.

    Very truly yours,
    Catherine Gemma

  • When we needed to find office/warehouse space Terry Purdy went above and beyond to make sure everything went through without a hitch. In our experience Terry worked overtime to not only find us the perfect location, but also to help us locate and hire professionals in the area to aid in the build out of the space. Additionally he introduced us to business owners he felt we would work well with and even made sure the local media was aware of our new services. We will most definitely call Terry Purdy in the future when we need to expand locations. In our opinion Terry Purdy is a true professional and we highly recommend his services.

  • The South County Food Pantry was in need of a larger space to distribute food to people in the Venice area who are ┬ín need We were at a loss as to where to go until I called Broohe Milton-Grundvig, our real estate agent. Brooke made a special effort to understand our needs and even visited our old site to see for herself how we work. She quickly located a great location for us with several offices available and was unbelievably patient while our board visited all of them trying to decide which would work best. Once we decided, she handled everything. She even helped us find some vendors who gave us reduced rates on equipment and other items that we needed to accommodate our needs. Our move at the end of June went very smoothly largely because of the help she provided us.

    Brooke is a very professional young woman with not only a good head for business, but a good heart as well She recognized that we were doing important work for the community, and she was more than happy to help.

    Now that we are settled in, I know that I can still call on Brooke with questions regarding the space and for anything at all that we need. She doesn't go away after the lease is signed. She is still very much there for us.

    Thanks, Brooke, for all you did for the South County Food Pantry!

    Sincerely,
    Rosie Schroeder
    Office Manager and Secretary of the Board of Directors.

  • Dear Terry,
    Thank you for your support, and May the Lord Bless you, for all your concern and effort in reaching out to the community by allowing us rental of the Galleria Facility to use as “Angel Tree Toyshop”. Use of the “Toyshop” helped us to facilitate our Angel Tree Christmas Toy Program. With your dedication and help we were able to provide approximately 600 children with toys.

    What a wonderful way to show God’s love through your service .... we truly appreciate you!!!

    For I was hungry and you fed me; I was thirsty and you gave me water, I was a stranger and you invited me into your homes ..... .
    Matthew 25:35

    In Christ Jesus.
