Featured CRER Client Testimonials

Steve Rapoport was instrumental in successfully moving through the real estate process of selling our previously owned building, as well as finding and closing on a new facility. He handled himself and our deals with professionalism and represented the Little City Foundation aggressively to reach an agreement favorable to us. I highly recommend Steve and would happily use him again in the future.

The Board of Directors and I were very pleased with Nate’s expertise and support throughout the entire process of seeking a tenant to fill our pending commercial vacancy. He was incredibly responsive to all of our needs and questions and was able to procure several offers for the space in a very short amount of time even in the midst of a very difficult and unique time of the pandemic.
