What some of our clients have to say about us

Tom Johnson and the Harshman team have exceeded our expectations. They have added value to our investments via a deep understanding of current space requirements and implement an aggressive and comprehensive marketing approach.

- Nick Koluch, Asset Management at Starwood Capital

Harshman & Company acted as agent when we bought the 6.2 cares that became the CitySide apartment complex. John guided us through a very complicated transaction, using his extensive network of business contacts to help us both pre-purchase and post-purchase.

John’s insight and market knowledge was simply invaluable to our firm in the decision making process as it relates to entering the Sarasota marketplace.

We have been working with John Harshman for over 20 years and are very pleased with his services.  Living out of state, it is essential that we have someone who we can trust to manage our properties well.  John maintains a good relationship with our tenants and makes sure that repairs get done in a timely fashion.  We highly recommend John Harshman.

“I have worked with Harshman and Co., and particularly John Harshman, for over 20 years. They have handled numerous real estate transactions on my behalf, including the sale and purchase of several office buildings, undeveloped land, and leased commercial properties. I have never known or worked with a more professional and knowledgeable company.  Quite simply, John Harshman is a man of great integrity.” - David Shapiro
