In Ian Hackett, you cannot find a better commercial property leasing professional. We asked Ian to help us find a new location for our offices. Of course, we had a budget and size requirements. Ian worked within our guidelines to present us with properties, which fit our needs. This was a process that took some time and visits to many properties. He was undaunted. He found us the perfect space. He was knowledgeable of leasing contracts and a willing, valuable advisor in the lease negotiations. Ian was very helpful throughout the completion of the lease, with vendors for furnishings, and even throughout the space build out process. I would highly recommend Ian and his firm to anyone looking for commercial office space.”

“I have had the pleasure of knowing and doing business with Ian Hackett for almost 20 years. Ian and his then business partner, represented the seller on the first piece of commercial property that I purchased for my business in 1993. I was very impressed with Ian’s sense of fairness representing not only his seller, but more importantly to me at the time, he was solid in his handling of my questions and concerns as well.
I have purchased several other properties since that time and have always used Ian as my agent. I have even used Ian in both properties I have purchased in other markets than Phoenix, as his council was critical for me to purchase these properties. His attention to detail and thorough handling of my transactions has been greatly appreciated. I always know that Ian will ask the tough questions of all parties, (including me) and with his guidance we have walked away from as many deals as we have done. I appreciate Ian’s win/win approach to business.
I will do more real estate transactions in the future and will use Ian Hackett to represent my interests. I find him to be of the highest level professionally and in his personal dealings with my company, my family members and myself. I have also always had positive feedback from the sellers of properties that I have purchased on Ian and his handling of our mutual transactions. Ian has a knack of bringing both parties to the table to create a fair deal for all involved.
I would gladly recommend Ian Hackett to anyone that is considering using him now or in future. You won’t be disappointed.”

“When our company was in need of a commercial real estate broker in the Phoenix metro area, Hackett Real Estate Solutions came highly recommended from a local banker. As Vice President and General Counsel of a growing Aerospace company, part of my job is to hire experts that can help me make informed decisions. I was looking for someone that understood the Phoenix commercial real estate market and that could help us find a new facility or negotiate favorable terms in our existing facility. What impressed me most about Ian was that he took the time to really understand our business and our needs, and as a result guided us toward a solution that worked best for us. One of Ian’s strengths is his good old-fashioned sense of customer service– meaning he focuses on building strong relationships and is a strong advocate for his client. Ian’s understanding of complex lease terms and conditions also impressed me. Commercial leases can often sound like a foreign language, and Ian was able interpret the unfamiliar lease terms for us and suggest changes. In the end, Ian saved us time and money and was able to negotiate a real estate solution that we could not have done on our own.”

“I have had the pleasure to work with Ian on a number of smaller, office lease deals in the Phoenix and Scottsdale markets. Being a small tenant, I was, and continue to be, impressed with the amount of time, attention and detail Ian focuses on my needs and those of my companies. From an analysis of my needs and wants, to a full report on what the market has to offer, then the time spent on analysis of each property that I might have short listed through the lens of complete market knowledge, Ian is as knowledgeable as they come. But that alone is rarely enough to commit to a commercial agent. What is enough is Ian’s gregarious disposition, candor in all matters, and his willingness to solve some otherwise complex and unique tenant needs. I can think of no reason to look further.”

“Ian has served as Southwest Human Development’s primary real estate agent for leasing office and warehouse space for a number of years. This has included new facilities and extending and renewing leases on existing space. Our needs have been from small offices to spaces large enough for 130 staff members. Ian has worked to know our needs and understand what is critical to SWHD. He doesn’t waste our time with space that will not fit our agency. He also has proven to be a good negotiator proposing innovative solutions to work around what appeared to be insurmountable obstacles. Southwest Human Development is very pleased with Ian’s services and would highly recommend him and his firm.”
