Commercial real estate brokerage firm | Read Alterra's Reviews!

I was a first-time buyer of a multi-tenant commercial building – the seller was less than thorough in record-keeping and building management.  Alterra did an excellent job in handling all aspects of the transition for me.  There was an immediate improvement in tenant relations and the whole process went smoothly. I left the country for 3 weeks just after the closing on the property so Alterra didn’t even have the benefit of daily communication with me

As small buisness owners, we have found over the years that it is tough to find realtors who understand “our world”.  Alterra did and was mindful of our time constraints and listened to our needs regarding new office space.  In addition, Alterra communicated in a clear, concise and regular basis throughout the process that let us know that they really were working on our behalf.

While we did not necessarily want to move, we needed to lower our rent expense and we engaged Alterra to look at our current lease as well as availability in the market.  Alterra found us numerous spaces that would have worked for our office and rent requirements but they also continued to work with our current landlord as we looked.  In the end, Alterra negotiated us great new lease terms for our existing space that saved us a great deal of rent and we did not have to go through the hassle of a move.

We utilized Alterra to find tenants for our building.  Not only did Alterra help us negotiate favorable leases, they kept us informed, presented information in terms we understood and always responded quickly to my many questions.  With Alterra’s help, our building is 100% occupied and is worth much more than what we paid for it.

The entire process of working with JR Rudicil and the Alterra team was tremendous.  Their expertise and professionalism was exemplified from the moment that we first notified you of our interest to purchase a building through the end, when you assisted with existing/future tenant rent contract negotiations.

We especially appreciated your suggestions on how to structure the lease to enhance our buildings value and how to strategically negotiate terms that resulted in the most favorable financial outcome.  The number of showings that we had was a result of your thorough advertising plan which had our building posted in every important segment.

The weekly, and sometimes daily, communication with us was refreshing as well because we felt that we always knew what was happening and that you were paying close attention to our property and actually working on it for us.

Alterra represented me when I decided to buy a building to house my growing dental practice.  Not only did they help me negotiate a fair purchaes price and handle the entire purchase on my behalf, but they have also handled the management of the property since my purchase.  Alisa, the Director of Property Management, even worked with the City to change the physical property address to a more marketable address and something easier for our patients to recognize.  The building tenants, including my office, are extremely happy with their efficient and professional management services.  Our expenses are low and the building looks great!

I switched the management of my Columbus, Ohio property to Alterra the second year I owned the property.  In Alterra’s first year of management, the year to year controllable expenses were reduced by 41% with no reduction in the services to the tenants or property.  In addition, I am an out of town landlord, and the monthly reports I receive from Alterra, versus the other manager’s, contain actual information about the tenant, the work done on the property, discussion about the financials and straightforward financial statements, not just a 100 pages of financial printout.

With the assistance of Alterra, we were able to relocate our offices at significantly lower cost than if we had attempted this complex process on our own.  I have utilized other local commercial real estate firms in the past and none have ever provided me the consistently high level of service and the comprehensive approach Michael Copella provided.

I had a great experience working with Joshua Waller and Alterra. My business lease was coming to an end, and I had a short amount of time to find a new space and get a lease finalized. I was introduced to Joshua and everything came together very quickly. Joshua was knowledgeable, helpful, communicative and made himself available to make sure I found something that worked for me and my business. The leasing process was seamless and I was able to get in to my new space quickly. I was very satisfied with the whole experience.

Todd Newkirk

Josh Waller was born and raised in Columbus so he knows the market well. As a startup business he had a lot empathy for our commercial real estate needs and helped guide us through the process. He was even able to connect us with other professional services needed for our transaction. Josh has leading edge technology that gives him an advantage over others. Glad he was on our side!

Evan Riley

Brad has been instrumental in finding space that is essential to the success of our organization. He was attentive in listening and understand our needs and was able to deliver property that checked off all of them. Moreover, while the deal is now inked, he continues to be instrumental in helping us with all of our questions and needs leading up to occupancy.

I would strongly recommend Brad Kitchen when considering your next property needs.

Ken Slinker

MN was an invaluable partner in our search for the right DC space, which was not an easy brief. We could not recommend him more highly.

Matt McEvoy

I worked with Joshua Waller at Alterra Real Estate Advisor for nearly 2 years as we scoured Columbus for our perfect location. He was professional, available, and knowledgeable throughout our entire search. I highly recommend Josh and Alterra Real Estate Advisors.

Roland Reeb

I contacted Alterra this past summer to see if they could help me rent commercial space that had been vacant for years. Brad met me on site within a week and assigned Jackson Pulliam as my sales and leasing agent. To say the least, Jackson and the Alterra team have been amazing. Our space in Pickerington, Ohio is unique in that noise and parking were two large issues of concern. Jackson and the Alterra team focused their efforts and resources to find tenants who would be a mutually great fit with the other tenants due to these limiting factors. Since contacting Alterra we have filled the space with perfect reliable and great tenants and plan to maintain our relationship with Alterra for decades to come. Thank you, Brian Sanders

Brian Sanders

Alterra has been wonderful. Both Brad and Matt, have deftly guided me through a commercial lease transaction in an incredibly tight market. With vacancy rates under 2% they were able to find 2 separate places that perfectly fit our criteria, a major accomplishment indeed. I will definitely reach out to them for their networking contacts in Central Ohio and for any future Real Estate needs as our business grows. Highly recommend.

Amanda Dixon

Highly recommend! The entire process of leasing through Alterra has been an awesome experience. Extremely knowledgeable and professional. Matt was extremely helpful throughout the entire process!

Bret Webb

Jackson was very helpful in finding us the right place and walking us through all the necessary steps to get us moved in. Would definitely recommend

Benjamin Kent

Great people and a great experience. I have dealt with dozens of real estate companies over the years and they will be my go to from now on.

John Havens

Joshua Waller from Alterra went above and beyond in finding me a great location for my business. There weren’t very many options available for us that fit our criteria, but Joshua found them all and was always prompt in getting a visit scheduled and meeting me there. After a handful of visits, we found one that worked great for us and he made the rest of the process of leasing a commercial space very straightforward. I’d recommend him to anyone looking to lease a space in Columbus!

Kyle Vandeveer

Jackson Pulliam is the best licensed agent who specializes in commercial real estate investments, acquisitions and leasing. He has a great background in finance and business, Jackson helped me realize and exceed my real estate goals by giving me innovative strategies and solutions. Jackson always approaches real estate with a client-centric perspective and to provided me the highest level of customer service.

Remington Lyman

I HIGHLY recommend Josh Waller! He went above and beyond to help find my first storefront location. He’s had multiple other contacts/recommendations for me to use for other business related things and he met me at every tour. I couldn’t be more thankful that Alterra got me in contact with a realtor I will continue to use.

Matt Norbuta at Alterra did an incredible job assisting my company in finding a warehouse location in the Columbus market. Matt is incredibly knowledgeable and responsive, and he proved to be incredibly helpful in getting our project over the finish line.

John Etchart

Real Estate deals are often tedious and difficult with a lot of moving parts. Matt Norbuta with Alterra worked hard on our behalf to keep things moving and get the contract done! His attention to detail and ability to handle difficult situations with grace and a bit of humor really helped get us to the finish line.
Thank you Matt and Alterra!

Lucy Coleman

We had a great experience working with Matt Norbuta. Matt is knowledgeable, professional, and always on time. Highly recommend.

David Coe and the Alterra team executed well on both the initial acquisition and the subsequent lease up of an industrial asset in suburban Columbus. Great team to work with.

Graham Stark

I had been looking for a realtor to help me find a place for my Photography Studio (Imagical Photography) and wasn’t finding any luck receiving assistance. I reached out to Alterra and Matt Norbuta gave me a call. He was a blessing! He helped me find the perfect spot downtown, and was patient as I sorted through the details. I’d recommend him for anything. He has the knowledge and experience to help clients reach their goals. Thank you Matt and Alterra!

Whitney Mitchell

Alterra has been our commercial real estate agent for over 10 years and has helped our company open numerous offices and renegotiate our leases when it was time to renew our office lease. They always make the process of finding office space simple and negotiate a great deal for us. Our company manages medical office practices and Alterra Real Estate Advisors works well with our doctors, and they understand the specific needs of medical office space. We can always count on them to get the deal done for us which is one less thing for us to worry about.

Brad Courter

Alterra did a great job in assisting us in our search for office space for our law firm. Jackson Pulliam was outstanding in assisting in identifying properties for sale and for lease that met our needs. Jackson visited each property with me and prepared detailed cost projections. He helped us steer clear of bad deals and helped us put together offers on properties that were promising. In the end, Jackson and Brad Kitchen helped us renegotiate our lease with our landlord of 18 years. The savings and significant improvements that we received as a result of their efforts will help keep our firm profitable for the next several years. I highly recommend Alterra. Jackson Pulliam will provide the personal attention that helps make searching for office space a success!

Michael Rourke

I listed a property of mine with Brad Kitchen and Jackson Pulliam. They were very professional, responsive, and most importantly they achieved our goal much faster than I was expecting. I would highly recommend Brad and Jackson and I look forward to working with them both in the future.

Ryan Ball

Alterra has been the property manager of the building we have been a tenant in for over 6 years. I can’t say enough good things about how responsive they are – we don’t have a lot of issues but they always respond quickly and are so nice. Thank you Alterra and especially Amy.

Christina Coenen

The team at Alterra has been very diligent with our search for a new company office and warehouse. Have not located the right location to date, but I am confident we will find it soon.

Brian Brooks

Great services and friendly people. They helped us find some great commercial space for our future expansions. They saved us a ton of hassle and money.

I’ve worked with Brad Kitchen and Alterra both as a contractor and customer. It was a pleasure to be treated such respect and professionalism.

Chris Hune

Over a period of 15 years, I have worked directly with Brad Kitchen and Alterra Real Estate on 4 leases (2 office and 2 industrial) on behalf of three businesses that I owned and a personal strategic investment. Brad has a great and unmatched knowledge of all aspects of commercial real estate and the Central Ohio market. He also has right business and governmental relationships to make things happen. I look forward to working with him for years to come.

Otto Beatty

Alterra Real Estate has been exceptional in helping me both find the perfect investment but also move through the purchase with smart strategy. They have the attitude that no questions are dumb so I have been able to learn and grow through my experience. I consider the Alterra team great partners in assisting the advancement of my investment portfolio. I highly recommend them.
Thank you, Brad for all your hard work on my projects.

Lori King

Brad Kitchen of Alterra assisted us in our search for new office space. He understood our needs and budget constraints, and then refined the search accordingly. He didn’t waste our time by showing us things that weren’t right for us — he really kept the process efficient!
Brad represented us well through the lease negotiations, too. Overall, we are very pleased with our new location and with Brad Kitchen and Alterra! I would recommend him and would definitely use him again!

Kathy Milenkovski

I am upgrading my review from a 2 to a 4 star. They are difficult to work with sometimes but have always been professional. They are sticklers to “terms and conditions” and definitely ROI realtors and property managers but they are efficient and fair. I personally prefer organizations that are more “people oriented” that make exceptions and go out of the way to accommodate customers. However, they are efficient, have a good business and run a tight ship so I have swallowed my personal angst to upgrade my review of this well run company.

William Ratcliff

The real estate professionals at Alterra are committed to customer support and satisfaction. They have a keen knowledge of the greater Columbus business community and are forward looking into the future. Everyone who works at Alterra is familiar with today’s market and will work for the clients best interests.

David Trautman

I have personally known Doug Reisinger for over a year and recently he worked with our office to secure our space for another lease term. He was on time every time, very professional and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to lease a commercial space or looking to purchase commercial space.

Jim Johnson

Jackson is a very knowledgeable and helpful agent. He responds quickly and is always in your corner.

Joseph Shehadi

Jackson provided me with answers and a solution to my office space needs in a short time. He was a pleasure to work with.

Timothy L. Drobnick Sr.

Great company to work with!

Lisa R

Jackson did a great job for us. He stayed on top of every detail and kept things moving forward.

Cindi Parker

Excellent experience! Jackson was a huge help in our business expansion. These guys are very insightful and knowledgeable when it comes to commercial real estate. Thanks!

Ken DiBiase

Jackson Pulliam was persistent in finding a tenant for my office space, which wasn’t as easy as it would normally be due to the pandemic. Thanks to Jackson and the Alterra team for getting it done!

Paul Milligan

Jackson Pulliam did the research and worked diligently with my requirements and circumstances to produce an extremely satisfying outcome that, frankly, I did not expect. Jackson operated with a collaborative feel and found middle ground on important non-financial aspects of the transaction. I highly recommend Jackson and Alterra.

Sam Moore

After having no activity on my property for years and sitting with it half empty, I hired Jackson Pulliam & he had a new tenant for the vacant space within a month and an offer for the sale of the property on top of that. He doesn’t mess around & gets things done.

We have utilized the services of Alterra Real Estate Advisors dating back to January of 2015. Their expertise range in every aspect of our realtor and leasing needs. They are very responsive and conduct themselves professionally, especially when engaging with our current and prospective tenants. We started with JR Rudicil, who was superb, and currently, we are working with Jackson Pulliam. Jackson has assisted LARS, LLC by finding qualified customers to fill our commercial building despite the difficult times during the Pandemic. His knowledge of the industry has tremendously benefited our family business.
