What our clients have to say about YABLO

I just wanted to say my business relationship with Rich Yablonsky of YABLO Commercial Real Estate was an excellent experience.  Rich is responsible and excellent at solving issues between buyer and seller.  He is a person who represents the commercial real estate industry with integrity, loyalty, honesty and total knowledge of the industry. Rich has done a tremendous job representing our ownership groups in the sale of four properties totaling nearly 300,000 square feet.  I would not hesitate to give Rich an opportunity to represent me in any other future real estate dealings.

If you are selling a property when you are not from the area, it can be very stressful. Thankfully, I found YABLO Commercial Real Estate. Rich had a complete and thorough understanding of the Twin Cities market. His advice to me was accurate and right on the mark. The entire process went very smoothly and we sold our building in a timely manner. I appreciate his helpful attitude to me in this process, and would recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate professional.

Rich Yablonsky is the commercial real estate pro that you work to find and don't want to let go of.  His professional acumen, reflecting more than two decades in the local community, is acute; the depth and breadth of his knowledge is extensive, and his viewpoints are those of an aggressive, realistic businessman.  He has appreciation for both forest and trees, with respect to the issues at hand and their broader implications in the local market and general economy.  The deal-making talents he brings to the table are astute and savvy.  But beyond all this, it is his set of personal characteristics which truly set him apart.  He is punctual, compulsive about communication and detail, absolutely and immediately responsive to any question or concern, and thoroughly honest.  He takes his fiduciary duties seriously, putting his client's best interests first, and he displays scrupulous integrity/ethics at all times.  Moreover, he is not a "yes" man, and he is intellectually rigorous.  I find him to be a stellar real estate advisor, and will continue to work with him as an indispensable colleague regarding my real estate portfolio.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the effort and expertise that you contributed to the successful sale of our 75,000 square foot building in St. Louis Park.  While we were on the market for longer than we hoped, it was with your counsel and good judgment that we adjusted the price to stimulate the market and immediately had numerous showings and three offers.  We got to the "sweet spot".  More than anything, I came to appreciate the wisdom that your experience and foresight brought to our dealings with the buyers and attorneys as we negotiated the final agreement.  I am left feeling that I got what I needed, and I think the buyer ended in the same position.  It would not have been as successful without your guidance.  As we move forward on our next "deal", I am happy that you are leading the charge!

I was pretty much at a standstill with the sale of my building and then I followed up a letter I received from YABLO Commercial Real Estate. Within 30days, there was a buyer for my building as well as two more that were interested! During the whole process I was kept informed of all that was happening with any interested buyers. Also, once the deal was made, I was kept up-to-date on everything this process involved. I just can't say enough about how satisfied I was with the whole process. THANKS!

This is a recommendation for Rich Yablonsky.  I have worked on several transactions with Rich.  Rich has continually demonstrated exceptional clarity in thinking, while driving toward successful completion of those transactions. He is fiercely loyal to his clients, and expects the same from anyone working with him. Whether you are leasing, buying or selling commercial real estate I would highly recommend Rich and his group. Smart, nimble and driven are easy ways to describe him.  Call Rich for a straight answer!  High integrity, high expertise, fun to work with!

I have been involved with a number of transactions and dealings with Rich. I had an opportunity to observe him over the last 20 years as he developed his skills and watched as he learned important business lessons. YABLO is a good man... a maverick with an internal moral compass that drives him to tell it like it is and do the best job that he can.  He gets his part of the deal done right every time. YABLO won’t let you down.... and that takes lots of hard work on his part.  Straight talk and hard work have quietly made YABLO Commercial Real Estate what it is today.

I am a licensed real estate broker and investor. Even though I am able to facilitate my own transactions, I have found Rich to be a very valuable resource. I have contracted with him to list and sell real estate that I could have sold on my own, but because I thought I would have better negotiating power through the use of an outside agent, I entered into a listing agreement with Rich. On the last deal I did with Rich, he sold my 20,000 square foot office complex for $100,000 more than I thought it was worth!

Although markets can be volatile, Rich Yablonsky’s character has always been a constant. When dealing with anyone within our firm, he is always friendly and professional. With over 1,700 clients at MPMG we see all types of people. I am confident that whatever your endeavor with Rich, you will find him to be honest and of the highest integrity. It is truly my pleasure to write this recommendation.

Your tenacious personality and knowledge in the industry make it easy to bring up your name and your company as a possible referral for my clients looking for real estate. I know if I put you in front of someone, they will be sure to get 100% effort from you.

Paul Stecker

Asst. Vice President

I want to say thank you for all your hard work in selling my building. From the first day on the market to the end of closing, you gave 100%. You were very respectful and business like to both myself and my tenants by giving advance notices, phone calls and emails for all the showings and the extensive work to keep everyone informed of the million inspections.I appreciate you going out of your way for all the help, being a widow with 3 children, a busy schedule and working full time has helped with the sale of the building to all go well and the least amount of stress on my part. All of my tenants felt you were very respectful to them and their business during this time.  I would highly recommend you to anyone interested in buying or selling their property. You are extremely knowledgeable of the business and go out of your way with all the paperwork, scheduling and representing me as the seller with my best interests in mind. I called you when I was interested in listing the building because you had the building for sale with my husband and I when we were looking for a building and that was years ago. I know that you are familiar with the business and the area and have the experience and know what it takes when you are to buy or sell. From the day I signed the listing it was less than 50 days and we had a signed letter of intent. When I listed I truly felt it would take a year to sell in this market so it was great news to have a buyer in 50 days!  I always knew I made the right decision with your company and will use you again and would highly recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell.  Keep up the good work and thanks again for a GREAT job.

In the spring of 2005 my partnership was looking to acquire a property for several million dollars as a Section 1031 exchange. I was introduced to Rich Yablonsky of YABLO Commercial Real Estate in Plymouth, MN, who represented the seller. We made a contract and successfully completed the purchase.  Rich was very professional and thorough in producing promptly all required records and data. He made the transaction close timely and smoothly.  I would recommend YABLO Commercial Real Estate for any party seeking commercial real estate services.
