I was referred to Key Commercial Real Estate early on in our search for a new location for our business, Potter’s Crackers in Madison, WI. After we closed on our future home, I was doing a little desk cleanup and came across a note from the referral that read “Jenny Lisak, real estate, knowledgeable, dependable and honest.” Looking back at our experience with her we found that no statement could be more true. She was an immense help when it came to wading through the market at a really weird time. She really took into account what our needs were from a processing point of view and a location point of view and did a great job steering us away from properties that did not suit our needs. She was also very patient with us, as first time buyers, keeping us on schedule when it came to deliverables that she needed from us and when it came to answering any of the many questions that we had throughout the process. I could not be more happy with Jenny’s level of professionalism and expertise in the real estate market.

CEO, Habitat For Humanity of Dane County

I asked Key Commercial Real Estate to do the job and they’ve done this and more!  As a businessman and real estate investor/developer, I place value in aligning myself with result-driven individuals displaying integrity, work ethic and the mindset to go the extra mile.  It’s these characteristics, coupled with their exceptional market knowledge, negotiating skills, curated approach to each listing and a follow-up and follow-through attitude that has made Key Commercial Real Estate stand out as one of the best.  They have provided an unparalleled service that has proven necessary in the recent success of my portfolio.  I tasked Key Commercial with taking on multiple large-scale listings at once, each needing something a bit different ranging from financial analysis, disposition, to vacancy lease-up and they seamlessly took on these projects and quickly turned around results.  I believe in giving credit where credit is due and Key Commercial has worked hard and earned my praise!”
