'When we decided to enter a new market, we were referred to Bruce (Ginsburg) by a skilled and successful friend in real estate. Obviously there is no way to fully trust a new contact right from the start, but Bruce and his team quickly established a rock solid level of confidence and respect. No deal is without bumps in the road; Bruce overcame each one, stayed calm and focused, and got us to the finish line! We're now working on other deals with Bruce, and there's no other agent we'd consider calling.'

'When I look for a commercial realtor in any market, I look for three primary attributes - Honesty, Understanding of specifically what I need and look for, and someone who thinks as if they are their client (me). I feel fortunate to have found that professional at IKON Realty Group. IKON has proven their worth over the past few years. I especially appreciate not just the results, but the attention to the many details in our successful Queensbury, NY project. I seldom give references. That being said, please feel free to use my name as a reference for any potential client looking for specific feedback. '

At long last we have closed the sale of the Ithaca properties. For well over a year you have “stayed on the case” with great determination. The buyer was, at times, difficult and was always demanding. Your frequent three hour trips to the properties to represent us was above and beyond what we expected. We could not have consummated this transaction without your help.
Most of all we appreciated your professionalism, your understanding of the process and, most of all, your integrity.
I hope we find new opportunities to work together.
