“After several attempts with other brokers, we selected SVN-Miller Commercial Real Estate and the team of John McClellan and Tom Knopp to sell our former warehouse in Hurlock, MD. They provided professional services and feedback throughout the process. The transaction encountered some unusual twists where they collaborated and creatively problem-solved to overcome the challenges, and always kept my best interest in mind. Their teamwork enabled them to achieve a selling price above our listing price. All parties involved were pleased with the final deal. I would highly recommend John and Tom for professional commercial real estate services.”

On the recent sale of the Perdue Showell Land Complex, Andy said, “It is a testimony of your dedication to your hard work and focus with the completion of a difficult task. I suspect many real estate salesmen would have just put a sign up and watch what happens but I know that you take your job as not just a desk job, but rather with a git ‘er done attitude. You have earned my respect many times over.”
