Our firm has worked on multiple dispositions with REZA Investment Group and would highly recommend their team.  The REZA team’s unique ability to negotiate with the broad investor spectrum, from unsophisticated private parties to institutional investors, combined with their instinctive problem-solving abilities and deal-making instincts is a rare combination of skills. Their marketing platform is unmatched in the business and they have an excellent ability to negotiate the best possible terms. They are highly skilled in exposing the assets that we sell to a wide group of investors and brokers; ultimately resulting in aggressive pricing for the ownership.

Over 20 years ago, I was fortunate enough to meet Reza Etedali when I was just beginning my career as a shopping center investor.  Over the years, Reza and his dedicated team of transaction specialists have been a critical part of my success.  With Reza's acquisition expertise, I own 3 of the best grocery anchored centers in our portfolio.   Reza's combination of character, intelligence, integrity, and experience are unequaled in investment sales.  I consider Reza the best in the business, and am proud to also call him my friend.

The guidance provided by REZA Investment Group on the disposition of the Promenade at Howard Hughes Center facilitated a smooth transaction on a high profile and somewhat complicated asset. We would not hesitate to utilize your services again in the future and are more than comfortable recommending you to other principals. Your team performed exceptionally well in navigating the transaction through many difficult and complicated scenarios.

The accessibility of Reza at any time helped us complete this complicated transaction in a very short timeframe... I look forward to future transactions with Reza Etedali.

REZA Investment Group assisted us with the disposition of a $90MM retail property, which GE had a non-performing loan on.  With a very complicated and challenging ownership structure, REZA was brought in specifically because of their prior direct dealings with all stakeholders within the ownership and the financing of the asset.  The assignment required a broker that could be relied upon to provide the skills, integrity and transparency to a situation that demanded it.  REZA worked diligently through numerous deal-related challenges to close what was one of the more complex deals I have ever seen.  They were able to satisfy the differing objectives within the ownership and exposed the property to a very broad spectrum of capable potential investors.  REZA was a delight to work with at all times, and their hands-on approach and instant accessibility throughout were instrumental in getting the sale to successfully close at a price which delighted all parties.
Carl Jacobson
Director of Asset Management
Formerly GE Capital Real Estate
The Reza team reached well outside of the mainstream and found a high risk, high reward buyer. Thanks to the Reza teams’ hands on approach with the buyer and the buyer’s lender the property closed on time and at our pricing expectations. This was our first listing with the REZA team and based on the experience I am looking forward to working with them again.

I’ve done business with Reza and his team of wonderful professionals for years. He values long term relationships and appreciates our bottom line way of doing business. Working with Reza takes away a big part of the worry in a deal. He is a gentleman and a pleasure to deal with.
Max Webb
Founder
Shapell & Webb LLC
Reza and his team recently handled the disposition of a $70 Million shopping center for our company. What surprised us most when we approached them to sell the property was their recommendation to not sell the asset due to its long term potential. They truly put their clients’ needs first. They exhibited superior deal-making and problem solving skills during the various tenuous phases of negotiations of the transaction.  Because of their cooperative approach in working with other brokers, the property was widely exposed and we were able to transact at an even higher price. The REZA team seamlessly handled the entire process from their thorough underwriting and due diligence of the asset to administering methodical buyer interviews and achieving a top market price.  They have worked with our firm on several additional projects in Nevada and California and it is always a true pleasure to work with them, as they are always genuine and have a deep understanding of the market.

I wanted to personally thank you for your excellent work in selling Citrus Village Plaza. As you are aware, we had owned this property for 20 years and flirted with selling it on several occasions. Your approach through the whole process (convincing us to sell, finding the right buyer and closing the deal) was excellent. After 30 years in the business, it is especially rewarding to deal with people that not only produce but also are professional and fun to work with.  I look forward to working with you again.
Robert T. Best

I had the opportunity to work with the REZA Investment Group team on the acquisition of a high profile anchored retail center in West Los Angeles.  Throughout the process, Reza and his team exhibited characteristics that we believe the top brokerage teams that we work with embody:  diligent and detail-oriented, market savvy in their approach, creative thinkers, and results-oriented.  I welcome the opportunity to work with Reza and the team again and would highly recommend their platform.
Ronald Haft
Chairman & CEO

In my over 30 years of being in the retail development and ownership business I have never worked with another firm that provides both solid advise and then implements it as well as Reza Etedali and his entire team at Reza Investment Group. His level of integrity and market knowledge is backed by not only Reza but his staff, which makes him our first choice when it comes to selling our assets. Reza is one of those rare finds in our business who consistently delivers superior results – good markets or bad, A or C properties. We can highly recommend them for any assignment.

I’ve successfully worked with the REZA team on multiple acquisitions and dispositions of large and high profile assets, as well complicated retail real estate projects.  The REZA team’s level of deal-making skills as well as negotiating abilities, responsiveness, and transparency are what truly differentiates them.  Their buyer reach is very impressive, and they are client and relationship-oriented in their approach.

The REZA team provided excellent strategic guidance and recommendations throughout the entire marketing and sale process for the City Heights Retail Village. Their expansive marketing efforts reached a broad range of institutional and private investors as well as investment brokers, which is very rare in the investment brokerage world. REZA’s team procured multiple qualified bidders that ultimately resulted in a highly competitive bid process and ultimately a very strong sales price for our ownership. The team’s handling of complex transaction hurdles during the process, which may have otherwise jeopardized the transaction, further speaks to their extensive experience and successful track record in handling large retail asset dispositions.
