Client Testimonials

Finding the right professional is not an easy decision sometimes because a Client does not yet have the experience with the Broker they are going to partner with. Why listen to the rhetoric? Read these actual testimonials from Buyers and Tenants we have teamed up with since 2004 so that you are ready to contact Shire Commercial.

Property type: Office Space  

I contacted Steve Shire along with some other commercial real estate brokers to see who would be the best choice to help our company find a space for a remote office in the Austin area. Steve was on the ball immediately and showed a much higher level of professionalism and organization over the other brokers. We were not the easiest client for Steve to deal with as our needs changed several times throughout the process. Even with those challenges, Steve always stayed positive and made sure he supported our needs. I enjoyed working with Shire Commercial and would not hesitate to recommend or utilize them again.

"After 27 years with the Travis County Sherri's Office, I am retiring and opening a boxing/MMA gym. I contacted Mr. Steve Shire just over a month ago and spoke to him about my business plan and what I was looking for in terms of a location/space. Mr Shire from the onset was attentive to my needs and responded quickly to all my inquiries. I am happy to report that he was able to help me in locating the perfect space for my business. The lease was signed recently and the process was painless. Thanks to Steve for his professionalism. I will certainly call upon Mr Shire again when it is time to expand!

Steve was very responsive and always there to answer questions and address concerns. Having never leased a commercial space, Steve was able to provide the guidance and education we needed to make the right decision. Not only did he help us find the perfect property, he also helped guide us through a better understanding of our lease agreement. I would definitely recommend Steve to help you find your next commercial property.

Property type: Warehouse Lease

Owning a loudspeaker company presents unique challenges in location, so as not to disturb other tenants. Steve worked with us to find the perfect spot, and when we did negotiated for us through 4 months of back and forth on the lease to get us into the place of our dreams. Highly recommended!

Incredible Experience! Working with Steve Shire is one of the most important and great experiences of my professional life. I engaged him to help me find the ‘location, location, location’ for my new veterinary hospital here in Austin; and HE DID! Within less than 14 days he presented me with a host of commercially available and productive possibilities. I chose one that was the best fit for me. He advocated for my best interest in negotiating the lease and he mentored me through the entire process. I highly recommend his professional expertise and genuine desire to find the best place for your business dream and success!

Mark Tarbet, CTS – CEO

Property type : Warehouse Lease

When I needed to find office space in a rush, Steve Shire was able to get the job done. I gave him just 1 week to find me properties to look at with certain features. He came through for me, and on the fourth day, we signed a lease on a space that was perfect for us. Steve helped us negotiate the best terms we could get and filtered and proofed the information so that the process wasted little of my time. I'll be asking Steve Shire to help the next time we need office space.

Edwin Young, CEO

Property type: Flex Space

I highly recommend Steve if you are looking for Austin office space. He showed me what I asked for (even though it changed a few times), gave me direction when I asked for it, stayed with me throughout the entire process and really added value through the entire process. I should also mention that he is great about communication and very professional and patient. I will use him again and highly recommend him for commercial real estate in Austin.

"Steve is a great agent to work with.  He is very patient and professional. He worked with us as our buying agent for some warehouse units. The process lasted longer than a year.  Steve has been following up with any questions we had in the process. He is very responsive , which is a characteristic hard to find in some real estate agents." September 2016

Marc Howell

Property type: Warehouse Lease

Our company was in need of a "unique" commercial property that had very specific parameters. I found Steve Shire from his website and gave him a call. He answered the moment I called and listened to our needs and said he would start looking and have something for us very soon. Two days later Steve had 3 possibilities for our space and on the third location, it was the perfect find. Steve is responsive, honest and a good person.

We were in the process of looking for a new office and warehouse space for our growing business. We then found Steve Shire who was very pleasant to work with. He helped us view a lot of properties and we found a great one that we love. He helped us with the lease and even looked it over on his end for us. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone who is looking to move into a new commercial space!

I utilized Steve Shire to find two different spaces for my businesses, I could not believe I got great research and negotiations without a hitch, it was much more than I expected.

Steve, you did a good job as Melissa and Kelly's Tenant Broker and made negotiations much more efficient for me as a Landlord. Paying you a commission on this lease is money well spent.

Expansion in business is paramount, but the wrong location can do more harm than good. We reached out to Steve and was immediately put at ease by his vast knowledge of the Austin area and his tenacity to find a place that met our needs. He was outstanding when it came to follow up, meeting schedules, detailed information about surrounding areas and the market in every location that we viewed. He has a knack for sticking to what he has promised to do, which is find you a place for your business. Not only did he find us the exact place we needed, we have become friends as well. He is a stand up, honest individual that comes highly recommended. If it is commercial realty that you seek, Steve Shire is the one you want. He was able to find us the “exact" spot for our ever expanding business, in the "perfect" location!!

Can't say enough good things about Steve as a completely trustworthy commercial real estate agent here in Austin.

I had space to sublease and he went over everything, educated me on the ins and outs and what to expect. You know you've got someone good when phone calls are returned. You know then he's going to do the same when someone else calls who is looking for space. He kept me updated throughout. He showed up at the time he said he would - took photos, asked me questions and more. It was a professional experience and one I would repeat the next time I'm looking for commercial space. Highly recommend Steve when you're doing a commercial lease.
I really could not ask for a better experience.
