As an international company based overseas, Paul’s assistance during the due diligence process was invaluable, as he discovered $1.8 million in additional value (prepaid utility capacity fees) missed by the MAI appraisal on the property and he renegotiated the SJRWMD permit that reduced our immediate out-of-pocket costs, as estimated by the civil engineers, by about $200,000. - MOSHE GOLDSCHMIDT, IPM REAL ESTATE, TEL AVIV, ISRAEL As the responsible party for the corporate relocation of TOTE Services, Inc. from New Jersey to Jacksonville (to join our sister company, Sea Star Lines), my job was made substantially easier by Paul Porter of Watson Commercial Realty, Inc. Paul understood our requirements, not just for property, but for information. Most importantly, he grasped the need for us to have information presented in a certain way per the requirements of our corporate decision-making structure. Paul’s perseverance through the stops and starts, his attention to detail, and his presentation and comparative analyses – the market review, lease vs. buy decision, and lease vs. lease comparisons – eased, greatly, what is never easy – moving to a new home. - SCOTT JONES, VICE PRESIDENT OF CORPORATE DEVELOPMENT/CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER, TOTE SERVICES, INC. Paul Porter of Watson Commercial Realty provides so much more to the Diocese of St. Augustine than standard commercial real estate brokerage services. He utilizes his land development experience, market savvy and know- how to increase the dollar return on our property. With one of our largest pieces of surplus property, Paul analyzed the market and determined that the prior approved development plan was outdated as a result of the market collapse. Subsequently, Paul volunteered to redesign the property based on his determination of highest and best use. Within weeks, the new design attracted a buyer at the listed price. We are very pleased with the relationship we have built with Paul as the Diocese of St. Augustine has benefited greatly. - CHARLES DAVID, DIRECTOR OF PLANNING, CONSTRUCTION & MANAGEMENT, DIOCESE OF ST.
