Client Testimonials

"Brixx has worked with Wendy on multiple deals over the past four years.  As a national organization who works with brokers in many markets across the country, Brixx has several requirements that are essential to our broker selection.  Those requirements include understanding our concept by recognizing our target guest and needs for site criteria and delivery of space, understanding what types of locations work well for us, keeping us informed as to new potential locations, working to get the best possible deal from Landlords, facilitating the communication process to get the deal done, and following up afterwards to see if things are progressing accordingly.  Wendy has done a great job on all of those requirements over the course of our work history."

~Eric Horsley, Brixx Wood Fired Pizza

 

"As regional owner for Fantastic Sams hair salons I regard Wendy as a true business partner.  We have experienced significant growth and Wendy has been involved in locating new sites and has assisted in vigorously negotiating leases for each.  Her attention to detail, organization, and timely follow up make her a valuable member of our team."

~Dick Kauffman, Fantastic Sams

 

"We have had the distinct pleasure of coming to know and work with Wendy Nabors as we looked to grow our brand presence in the Triangle area.  Wendy worked closely with  my wife and I to understand us and our business, listen to our needs and wants and then provide a portfolio of properties to review and visit.  She was not only a pleasure to work with, always professional in her manner and approach but she clearly demonstrated a wide and deep understanding of the commercial real estate market, able to provide us and our franchisor with current, relevant information and honest, straightforward guidance and advice.  We have since recommended Wendy to several of our friends and colleagues."

~Bob Jones, Savory Spice Shop

"Wendy was knowledgeable, professional, patient, and well-connected in the commercial property field.  Commercial leasing transactions are not easy, but Wendy's assistance made the process much easier and more advantageous to me than if I had represented myself in the transaction."

~Todd Mozingo, Edible Art Bakery & Dessert Cafe'

"Wendy was very generous with her time - she listened and let me ask questions (for hours) even though I wasn't a client yet.  She has spent some time working as an agent for large developers so she can confidently guide small business owners in the deepest waters.  NO restaurant owner should go this alone - they need a broker, they just don't know what they don't know and they can get in trouble.

Wendy knows the details and costs of upfitting a restaurant of any size, any finish and any style, from small fast casual to the highest end.  She knows the fair price per square foot and the details of tenant improvement allowances. With Wendy, we were able to get the most leverage without being taken advantage of. 

 

Most of all, I felt that Wendy was personally committed to our success and that she cared a great deal about us.  I loved working with her and I highly recommend her!"

~Jessica Murphy, La Perla Restaurant & Bar

"I have worked with Wendy Nabors of Barrett Nabors Commercial on a variety of projects over the past few years and have always been impressed by her dedication and professionalism.  She has always looked out for my best interests and understands the importance of finding the right fit for each client.  She is thorough and detailed with the legal and administrative duties that are required, and will always put her client's needs head of her own.  I will continue to call on Wendy for future projects."

~Joe Forgione, Paparazzi Ristorante Italiano and Catering

 

"I have known Wendy for about a year.  i am a small business owner, and at one point we were searching for  a second location to expand our brand.  Wendy has always stayed in touch, providing the latest trends in the market with timely reports and an overview of commercial space available in the Triangle area.  When new properties become available, Wendy shares that information even when a location or type of property is a little different or unexpected from the "norm".  Wendy is personable, very friendly, and customer oriented with terrific knowledge and experience brokering commercial real estate properties.  I highly recommend her services."

~Whitney Brown, The Olive Wagon

"I feel lucky to have found Wendy!  I have been hunting for a suitable property for my preschool for a while and her guidance has been instrumental in getting me to this point.  When we first met, she took the time to understand my needs.  She's a great communicator and is excellent at following up.  She responds right away to questions and goes the extra mile to find answers.  She is very knowledgeable about the area and has been able to bring in additional professionals to help as needed.  Wendy is an absolute pleasure to work with.  As a business owner it takes a while to build a team of people you can turn to, and I am delighted to have found the right real estate person for my 'team'!"
