Thank you … Thank you …. for exceeding our expectations in partnering with Sperry Van Ness/Ramshaw Real Estate. Not only have you granted us additional nationwide marketing exposure that we may otherwise not have been privileged to but, you continuously stay on top of our ever changing needs within the real estate market.

It has been my pleasure to have worked with you on several real estate transactions. As you are aware, we have more of a build and hold strategy at Agracel, but have been very pleased with the values you have been able to bring to the table for the properties we have sold. We believe your full service approach with a good grasp of the marketplace has allowed us to sell these properties at the top of their market value.

Alex quickly and accurately assesses the organization’s needs and uses innovative approaches to match those needs. Alex was excellent at identifying potential partnerships and financing sources to meet the objectives of the project.

Alex is the consummate professional with a warm and caring approach to working with people. He demonstrates an energetic, no nonsense, negotiation style that gets the job done with the ability to satisfy both parties in the deal.

Over the years, our Agency and I have appreciated Alex’s energetic participation in the selection process of sites, his professionalism and his negotiation strategy skills. He brings with him an array of valuable community contacts in business, real estate, and banking.

The professional approach taken by Alex in addressing issues of concern has been of utmost importance to the staff of PPECI. One example is a building owned by PPECI which we very much needed to sell. It has been in the hands of another realtor who supposedly was working toward a sale while at the same time renting the facility. When Alex was asked to take over the contract we were able to sell the building quickly.

Our company met with Mr. Ruggieri on May 28 and signed a contract to sell a commercial strip mall with SVN on June 1. Amazingly, within a mere 6 additional days, we had over 6 inquiries from around the United States with buyers interested in the property. Perhaps more incredible was the fact that Mr. Ruggieri was able to bring in buyers to view the properly in short order and to present us with a contract in less than 45 days from the initial engagement! Yes, it was an acceptable contract and through the shepherding by Mr. Ruggieri we were able to complete the entire process within 75 days!

Alex most recently showed his abilities in keeping a buyer and seller on track by expediting our cities purchase of a vacant Implement Dealership to be used as a Public Works Compl ex. He brokered the communications into a transaction that has saved the City potentially tens of thousands of tax payers dollars. We are pleased with our past dealing and have no qualms in stating we have the utmost confidence in their honesty and integrity in any future dealings.

Working with a local family, Alex brought the family and the Village together to work cooperatively to acquire an existing property and develop the facility into a facility that will serve the community…Because of Alex’s energy and commitment to helping make Savoy a better and friendlier place to live and work, the Village of Savoy is able to move ahead on these important capital projects that will save the Village millions of dollars and provide the facilities much sooner than planned. Our experience with Ramshaw Real Estate and Alex Ruggieri in particular has been nothing but spectacular. We look forward to a long lasting relationship with this company and Alex Ruggieri.
