Attention to Detail & Dedication
It is with pleasure that we write this letter of recommendation for the services of Jeff Fedyk of The Commercial Group, Saskatoon.
In April 2014 we made a decision to explore the commercial property market in Saskatoon. We had no previous experience in commercial real estate ownership and placed a cold call to Jeff Fedyk on the recommendation of a friend. Over the next two years we purchased, renovated and leased a 14,000 square foot building in downtown Saskatoon. This was a very successful undertaking largely due to the expertise and fine service provided by Jeff and his colleagues at The Commercial Group.
Jeff's timely attention to detail facilitated a seamless purchase of the building. He thoroughly prepared information to help us understand the nuances of commercial property ownership. He promptly acknowledged and completely addressed all our concerns with full transparency, allowing us to proceed with the purchase with ease.
Our reliance on Jeff's expertise grew throughout the renovation of building when we frequently deferred to him to ensure that the construction decisions were enhancing the marketability of the building. He was always willing to attend our meetings with the contractors and he quickly won their respect and trust. These routine discussions helped facilitate completion of the project on time and budget.
Once the renovations were complete, Jeff arranged leases with three excellent tenants. Once again, he educated us on the importance of various details in the leasing agreements. He tirelessly showed the building to prospective tenants and kept us routinely informed of all activity. Throughout this process he was very respectful of our vision for the building. As a result, we have a building which is fully leased to tenants who are very satisfied with their space and lease terms.
Jeff has been a pleasure to work with. Backed by the professionals in The Commercial Group office, he brings a wealth of experience, dedication and unquestionable integrity which is evidenced in all that he does. We unequivocally recommend the services of Jeff for all commercial property needs.

She Can Deliver
"We were lucky to engage Kari to assist in our search for new practice space in the downtown core. We had very specific needs and desires and she worked hard to ensure that our criteria were met and found ideal space for our needs. She was attentive to our wish list and helped to connect us with all the right people. The result is a perfect fit. We are very happy with her support during the process of negotiating and signing the lease and she never rushed or glossed over details, helping us to understand and feel confident in every step. Small bumps in the road were smoothed over and handled in short order and with minimum fuss. No question was too small or trivial for her to address right away. She checked in on us regularly to ensure our satisfaction. She is very professional."
Kari is part of our team because she can “deliver”!

Kari Exceeds Expectations
"We enlisted Kari before entering into our last two business ventures and we can't imagine having done either without her. She has a knack for gaining a clear understanding of her clients' vision and then goes to work to exceed expectations. Throughout both processes, it felt we had an invested business partner in Kari, not merely a real estate agent. She works hard to create a long-term win for everyone in the process and leaves no stone unturned in her efforts to get there. She is successful at what she does because no matter how big or small the job is, she adds value to the relationships, the process and the bottom line."

"Thank-you for all of your hard work in communicating with us to put together a deal to bring Cuelenaere LLP to the Nexus Building.
We were impressed with the notable effort you put forth in presenting information to your clients in order to help them make the decision to relocate and subsequently select a new home. It was evident that you had gone the "extra mile" to help them understand the implications of different buildings, locations and tenant improvement decisions; patiently guiding them though the process while providing us with consistent communication and updates confirming that you were successfully managing the deal at all times.
We are grateful and pleased to have Cuelenaere as a tenant in our signature building which would not have happened without you going above and beyond."
Sincerely, Trevor Jacek, Chief Financial Officer
