Even though we have many resources to call upon, your expert knowledge and negotiating skills were extremely helpful to us. As we went through the process together, I found your expertise and knowledge of the Toronto market conditions to be instrumental to achieving our objectives.
I appreciated your diligence and tenacity in dealing with the landlord community on our behalf. Also, it is my belief that your firm’s tenant focus and detailed process greatly contributed to the successful outcome.

During the entire process your firm was professional and courteous and it was a pleasure to deal with you. As a result of your involvement, the bank’s Real Estate Management Department was able to achieve below market rates.
Real Estate Management
Connell Real Estate guided our organization through a comprehensive process that skillfully accommodated all stakeholders. Of particular value was Fraser’s in-depth analysis of required capital expenditures which allowed us to engineer a pliable lease scenario that addressed our growth plans. The entire process was methodical, timely and lead to a stress-free move.

Fraser and Paul represented us in a professional manner and ensured that our goals were met – from the site selection, right down to the details of our lease agreements. Their endless hours produced an incredible foundation for our growth in Ontario.
As they continue to draw on their vast network of contacts and knowledge of the retail landscape, we will maintain a strong development pipeline for future locations. We look forward to a long-lasting relationship with Connell Real Estate.
President & CEO
Fraser educated us with respect to our market options, and his specific knowledge of recent transactions in the GTA have led us to arrive at “better than market terms” with our various landlords. As a direct result of his representation of our organization, we have been able to consistently lower our occupancy costs.
Chief Executive Officer
I have found there is never a shortage of brokerages or agents attempting to meet my firm’s every need. There is, however, a shortage in the number who can deliver on their commitments. Paul Richardson and Fraser Connell have been indispensable in providing services tailored to our needs, and they work tirelessly until the results we were after are produced.
