Among our companies, we have had the pleasure of working with Tom Collins on a number of real estate transactions, involving both leases and sales. He has consistently handled all phases of these transactions in a knowledgeable and professional manner, navigating through the complicated matrix of negotiations, planning and zoning and finance.
We can, without reservation, recommend Tom Collins with our highest confidence.

Joe, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for handling our negotiations and rental of our property at 95 Schwenk Drive. Your knowledge of the market along with your ability to provide prospective tenants with a variety of options proved invaluable.

Tom Collins has represented Getty Properties on several property transactions and has been instrumental in their disposition. I have depended on his expertise in stewarding complex transactions through lengthy zoning and environmental challenges to a successful conclusion.
I would be pleased to recommend Tom to anyone looking for a professional commercial real estate consultant or representative.
~Richard Catalan, Asset Manager, Getty Properties Corp.
Thank you for your help recently with marketing three bank-owned properties in the Kingston area for sale. You were faced with some difficult properties to market-including a single use corporate headquarters with more uniqueness to the building than anything else. You were able to bring out the best of the building and overcome many hurdles along the way that could have easily derailed the timely sale of the property.
Completing a real estate transaction can be a challenge at times. I felt that, due to your professionalism and your willingness to go one step “above and beyond”, you certainly eased that challenge and made these transactions move as smoothly as they possibly could have.
Ultimately you did bring a buyer to the table for all three assets and, though there were many wrinkles through the contract-negotiating period, we managed to hold the entire transaction together.
Thank You again and I look forward to working with you in the future
~KeyBank National Association

Please accept our highest recommendation of Tom Collins.

Joe, it was a pleasure meeting with you last week to discuss the market strategy of our most recent commercial property.
The confidentiality and expertise you exhibited dealing with the situation was handled with the utmost professionalism.
Your contacts and working knowledge of Commercial Real Estate has produced the sale of specialized properties for M&T Bank.
We hope to continue this relationship in the coming years.
Savanna has had an ongoing professional relationship with Tom Collins since 1999. He has always handled our transactions, including acquisitions, dispositions, and leasing of major real estate assets, in the most competent and professional manner.
We continue to depend on Tom Collins to represent our interests and highly recommend their services to anyone. We trust Tom to understand and have our best interests at heart. In all our years working together, we’ve never had a conflict, not did we ever feel that Tom put his personal interests above our business interests as owners.
~ Edgar Benjamin Cabrera, Vice President, Savanna
I owned property in the EDZ zone in Kingston, NY which I wanted to sell. The location of the property put this sale in the category of ‘a challenge’. Joe handled the entire transaction very professionally and was diligent in finding a buyer. I was kept fully informed on the status of the sale throughout the process. All offers were presented to me for consideration. Joe managed to sell the property far sooner than I had anticipated.
I would strongly recommend Joe’s services on any commercial property sale. It was a pleasure doing business with him.
