"It is my pleasure to endorse the services of Ron and Net Lease Partners.
We have been fortunate to have known Ron for many years and in many capacities. In the 1980’s Ron was an important member of the VMS Realty Partners team. Subsequently, we worked with Ron at Net Lease Partners on several projects, including an acquisition and re-positioning of a retail shopping center that he handled from the buy to the sale.
Ron’s skills and experience are very high. One may have complete confidence in his abilities."
Joel A. Stone, Stone Financial Group
"I started my career in the net lease industry in the early 90's working with Ron at Brauvin Real Estate Funds as an analyst. Ron was one of my best mentors I have had over my career as he taught me the net lease business and the subtle nuisances that guide a deal to a successful conclusion. He also taught me that keeping your word is more important than winning the deal. I so trust Ron that we still work on deals together. Net Lease Partners, Inc. is a consultant at Envoy and Ron sits on its advisory board. He is a great sounding board and a good friend."
Ralph Cram, CFA CRE, | President, Envoy Net Lease Partners, LLC | Construction Lending & Chicago REO Professional Group Manager
" I’ve worked with Ron Max for over 20 years and I can tell you that there is no one that I have more trust and faith in than Ron Max . If your thinking of working with Ron stop thinking and do it - Not only will you get a job well done but you will pick up a friend in the process.."
Steven Waldman, President, Crowd Fund Realty Advisors, LLC
"We are a private equity company and generally own and manage apartments. I began working with Ron in 2005 on a very successful retail property that he was the asset manager on in Hawaii. When we undertook a retail project in Chicago, IL, we brought Net Lease Partners in to handle the asset management. The investment has been challenged by the effects of the pandemic which has made rental collection and tenant retention very difficult. The effects put a major stress on ownership, particularly with our lender. Ron was our leader in working with our lender on a loan modification and brought the retail space to 100% occupancy, which saved the investment for ourselves and our partners. I would not hesitate to endorse them for almost any project."
James Gatlin, Managing Director – Blacklion Holdings
"Net Lease Partners, Inc. has been asset manager for my client’s properties since 2009. During that time, the company was instrumental in managing one property through the tenant’s bankruptcy, successfully locating a new tenant and negotiating very favorable terms for the client. The company also managed the successful sale of the second property when market conditions were not favorable. Ron’s experience and knowledge of commercial real estate trends, property values and market areas has been invaluable to my clients."
Kathy L. Bishop, Esq., Attorney
“Net Lease Partners was a referral from the Retail Broker’s Network. I found Ron to have his client’s best interest in mind first. Ron was easy to communicate with and to work with, by his being extremely accessible and extremely professional. Without those qualities, the lease that we did would not have been possible.
I look forward to working with Ron again soon.”
Daniel R. Adamson, Executive Director, ROI Commercial Real Estate
"We are a small family with real estate holdings. Our assets are valuable and we desire to keep them producing at maximum benefit. And there are many issues that can arise, projects that are often out of our expertise. For these situations we look to Net Lease Partners to meet the needs. Whether we need to do a 1031 exchange, negotiate a lease modification, deal with a bankruptcy, do a build-out, get insurance on a vacant parcel (in a hurry), or even just acquiring a new parcel, we have found that NLP has the knowledge, skill, contacts and experience to support our efforts."
Nate Kirby, Manager/Co-Owner - Kirby Family Trust
"Ron is a well-rounded commercial real estate and financial professional. I have worked with him for years and he has considerable experience in all facets of the industry. I would endorse Ron on the transactional as well as analytical functions of commercial real estate...he can buy, lease, manage, sell and handle the complex tax and accounting issues related to commercial real estate."
Rocco Cortese, Managing Director at The Heritage Group, Inc.
"With over 30 years of experience in commercial real estate, Ron is savvy, insightful and knowledgeable. Most impressive to me, however, is Ron's creativity and his entrepreneurial nature. We have worked closely together over the years structuring and executing complicated transactions. It has been a pleasure working with him and learning from him."
Frank Eichenlaub, Attorney
"I have had the pleasure of working with Ron on a number of occasions. Ron is competent, straight forward, great at managing details and an excellent judge of risk/opportunity. On top of that and most importantly, he is a really nice person."
