“The owner was happy to work with ACTS because they are a faith based organization that does charitable work building affordable housing and he really liked that aspect of the deal.”

“The current appraisal that the city had put on the property was about as high as you could take the property. We were given some assurances, that with the proper MAI appraiser, that yes, we could get almost double what the city had appraised the property for.”

Buist Richardson

Principal, Avison Young

“You’re helping the poor and the needy, the downtrodden. I know you can’t help everybody, but you can help some, and that’s our philosophy too. So we help, in our case it’s like 4,000 a month that we help.”

Pastor Vincent Fusco

Executive Director of ACTS

“I felt very comfortable with their (Welfont) appraisal process and all the other things that made it very easy for me to, within 60 days of contact, to have a transaction completed.”

Steven Fournier

Manager/Owner Water Street Industrial

“Combined with the value of the tax deduction and the ability to dispose of the property in a nice way to somebody that will do some good things with it had a lot of appeal to me.”

“Overall, I look at Welfont as a clearing house, the broker, the paralegal, and the technical acquisition team. You have a number of internal skill sets, and then underwriting a given transaction in bringing the right charity to being the purchaser. So, you wear a number of hats. It (Section 170 Bargain Sale) was something we put in front of our owner as an opportunity for both respective clients.”

Art Ross

Senior Managing Director in the Hartford, Connecticut, office of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank

“Working with Welfont has been extraordinarily beneficial to me. The reason is, quite candidly, is that they bring to the table a level of expertise in this particular section of the tax code. Many times I’ve had the opportunity to have my client on the telephone with one of the consultants with Welfont and they’ve been able to answer very specific and pointed questions with regard to how this impacts the seller…but they sort of bring a of level of expertise that broadens that for the seller.”

Doug McCullough

Vice President, NAI Chase Commercial

“For us, we do a lot of business in the food and agricultural business, which tends to have properties in rural areas, and so for us, we certainly considered when we take on properties, looking at whether or not, really right off the bat now, having had experience working with Welfont before, if we want to use that and take these properties to Welfont from the get-go as part of our strategy.”

Brandon Wood

Vice President, Corporate Realty Advisors

“When you give to Welfont and make the donation to Master’s Commission, you are making an impact into not just an individual, but you’re making an impact into a generation.”

Derrek Sullivan

President, Master’s Commission International Network

“In 22 years, I’ve been involved in over a billion dollars of real estate transactions and I never had access to this type of disposition. And, my clients hadn’t.”

“The IRS Section 170 Bargain Sale with our seller went very smoothly. It was more beneficial to them than trying to sell the property outright and was quicker and smoother than trying to sell it conventionally. I know they have been pleased with the process. We look at Welfont and the Bargain Sale as another club in our golf bag of things we can offer our client.”

Jeff Azuse

Senior Vice President, Hilco Real Estate

“The Bargain Sale transaction was a new disposition strategy that I had never considered for my clients until introduced to me. After doing two, I now introduce it to my clients as an alternative to a traditional sale.”

Doug McCullough

Vice President, NAI Chase Commercial

“I represented the Seller in the sale of a challenging industrial property. The IRS Section 170 Bargain Sale was something that I had little experience with and frankly had not contemplated. The bargain sale worked and got the job done to everyone’s satisfaction.”
