Agent Testimonials

Kori is an experienced Professional. She prepared a detailed brochure for Buyers with accurate information necessary to help them make an informed decision to look at my property. It was beautifully done and posted on sites that bring in plenty of traffic. She is a subject-matter expert for your Closing, Insurance, Vendor referrals for any kind of repairs, city and local Association contacts and etc. Kori also works hard to remain in contact in a timely way with her clients, making herself available as needed with no excuses. I do very much appreciate her expertise in Commercial Real Estate.

There aren’t words for the depth and professionalism of Kori Billings. She listed and sold my laundromat business with real estate in Tampa. Kori was relentless in collecting, analyzing and organizing the necessary data from accounting, vendors, utilities, payroll, ATM and more to achieve a successful closing. She has even continued to handle issues several months after the closing. Throughout the process we built a friendship that will endure lifetimes.

We had a very good and pleasurable experience with the Bridgewater group on the sale of our commercial industrial property. Shane and Kori Billings launched their presentation package for our concrete plant property and received immediate results. They handled the negotiations and communications smoothly, helped us navigate through problematic questions that came up. They understand what it takes to get the right information to the right buyer, they “get it”. I would highly recommend this Billings team.

Without a doubt, Kori and Shane Billings were the two most professional, thorough and pleasant realtors that I have had the pleasure to deal with. Our transaction was seamless and I highly recommend them.

We have used Kori Billings for our real estate needs with our corporation for over 5 years and she always has her clients best interests in mind. From showing us relevant locations we asked to see, to finding a hidden gem that may not be ideal, but that fits our needs, she does a wonderful job for us. She asks you the right questions up front to make the process as painless as possible. She is thorough and detailed with her analysis of listings and always works to get the best possible information on the properties that she shows you, as well putting a listing on the market for you. We will never use another realtor except her!

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Kori and Shane Billings on a 24 tenant commercial office building purchase in Tampa FL. They were extremely professional. The property was very well marketed with extensive information through out the entire deal process. This was a complicated deal that they organized very well. I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for brokerage work in the commercial real estate world.

As a tenant relocating to Florida I knew I was in for a tough challenge. With previous brokers I lost out on really good opportunities because they didn’t have the experience or the contacts and reputation to get my offer accepted over other competitive bids. Working with Dee was totally different. Every place we came across the listing broker knew and respected him. Took his phone calls. When we found the perfect place for my business we were able to jump on it – Dee even going so far as to photograph it for me when I was still up north. We won out over other offers and now I feel I have the perfect size, space and location for my business for many years to come. Everyone has access to the same public listings. But working with Dee gave me the edge I needed in a hyper competitive market.

Bridgewater is now my go-to team for any commercial RE acquisitions or sales, Shane sold my commercial property within weeks of listing, nothing short of Rockstar status! 

After so many attempts to find a new branch location, shifting from one county to another, Kori found us a new location! She was such a trooper. She never once got frustrated with us or gave up on our mission. We are so grateful for her partnership!

I recently acquired the experience of Bridgewater Commercial to sell my property in Carrollwood. Selling was a huge decision in my life, and deciding who to entrust this monumental choice with was daunting. From the second Kori and Shane came to meet me, I knew they were the right fit. They were confident and competent. They guided me through the entire process with professionalism, while maintaining a very friendly demeanor at the same time.  They stood tall for my wants and didn’t back down to the opposition’s lowball offers. They really had my back til the end, and after!
I am incredibly pleased with my experience with Bridgewater Commercial. I would recommend Kori and Shane Billings to anyone!

Dee helped me get a great selling price and the property sold fast. Had multiple offers within 2 days. Also he was very responsive to my questions and concerns. Very professional. I highly recommend his services.

Kori Billings was my tenant representative and did an impressive job locating a commercial retail space for me to lease in the Carrollwood area of Tampa.  She is very efficient and definitely uses her resources and many years of experience to complete the job from beginning to end.  She is great on following up through each step of the leasing process.  She knows the Tampa area well, especially Carrollwood, and she also goes out of her way to provide any additional information you may need from examples to other business referrals.  I highly recommend Kori for your leasing needs.

After eight years of failed contracts and false promises we signed on with Shane and closed in less than sixty days. After years of dealing with Brokers that expected the property to sell itself it was a rare pleasure to deal with a Broker who has a “hands on” approach to business like Shane. Shane’s aggressive marketing strategy produced more offers in one day than all the previous Brokers combined. Once under contract he provided a timeline of all items and kept us updated throughout without having to track him down. Shane’s extensive environmental background proved instrumental in completing the sale, I don’t think anyone else could have pulled it off. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Shane to any of my friends or associates because he delivers. Thanks again.

I am a commercial lender and have worked with Shane on three loan transactions for his clients.  I really enjoy working with him as he is a great communicator, is responsible and professional and truly is a great advisor to his clients.   I look forward to working with him on the next one!

Thank you for all the help and support you gave us in trying to find a spot for us to rent.  It was a long and tough process and you stuck with us at the lowest points and made sure we were protected form predatory owners and so much more.  Without you we wouldn’t have even met the people we are renting from now!

Honestly, people like you are the real good folks out there that do their job the best when they do it with and for the clients.  You did that 10-fold and I would take 100 Dee Marets over anyone else because I know you are professional, straight forward, diligent, persistent, and above all you did all this out of the goodness of your heart.

Both Morgan and I know that moving forward in any capacity — renting or buying — we will be using your services as long as we can.

Shane recently located, and helped me close, a 27,000sf flex space building in the Westshore district of Tampa. He handled every detail of the transaction in a very efficient and expedient manner. I highly recommend him. You won’t find a more diligent person in the business.

Shane was a great help in selling my commercial property. He is a very professional salesperson, accountable and found to be very responsive.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Shane Billings during my transaction.  Shane is bright, meticulous, accountable, and was an immense help during my real estate purchase.  I hope that I am able to work with Shane in the future!

If you own a building you want to sell, you should “talk with Kori first’. Kori Billings @ Bridgewater Commercial Real Estate listed our multi-unit commercial property, produced an eye catching brochure, found a buyer and closed the transaction. All along the way, Kori & her team were there for us. She worked well with our CPA & attorney ironing out unexpected tax issues. We couldn’t be happier with her professionalism, responsiveness & the value of her guidance.

Thanks Kori! Thanks Bridgewater

Shane Billings was very professional, no-nonsense, and efficient. He brought the transaction to completion way ahead of an already short listing window.
Shane really helped us locate a workable solution to a new property that required a specific amount of warehouse, parking and office space. After nearly 3 years looking, he identified and we secured a new location. That’s along time to stay dedicated and focused on a customer. Highly recommend Shane for commercial property needs!
Shane Billings is an excellent commercial realtor.   Shane keeps the best interest of client and has very high integrity. I appreciate his service and plan to work with him again.

Shane Billings did an amazing job in the process of securing a commercial building and a SBA loan with all the works! Shane Billings represented the seller, and although we had no agent, Shane acted as though he was our agent by finding a lender, contractors, architect and pointing out an SBA loan relief program. Your diligence, professional attitude and won’t quit determination made our dream possible. This was an amazing first time experience and would recommend him for any type of job.

I met Shane Billings from a Commercial Property he has listed. We did not lease that property, but Shane was very thorough in his search for Commercial Property for us. Our lease was up in Largo and wanted to relocate to Oldsmar or Odessa. We needed less office space and more warehouse space. Shane was able to find us the perfect location in Oldsmar and assisted us with closing the deal. We move in September. I would highly recommend Shane!

I am realizing my dream of becoming a business owner and I could not have done it without Kori Billings. Whether you are a buyer or a seller get Kori to represent you. She is dynamic, thorough, resourceful, puts her client’s best interest before her commission, gets things done, she is simply awesome! I could not have asked for a better broker. I highly recommend her. Thank you Kori!! YOU’RE THE BEST!!

It was a great pleasure to work with Shane Billings for few real estate transactions. Every time he shows high professionalism and quick response in addition to be on time with his promises at all times. He has great knowledge of the market in each area we work with plus continuous observation to the vacancies during the marketing period with periodic update.

Laura Guroian has been so helpful to me and is so patient in my search for various properties! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for properties whether for selling, leasing or to buy!

I came in contact with Kori Billings because of my interest in a business and real estate she had listed. I was traveling in the area and saw a large for sale sign posted outside of the business. I visited Kori’s website and was very impressed with the marketing related to the business for sale. The photos and listing information was very professional and thorough. Kori and Shane provided a wealth of information that was always available to me throughout the purchase. Both were always accessible and responsive to any additional information I needed. I would not hesitate to use or recommend them.

Shane, thank you very much for your responsiveness throughout our transactions as you have helped make these deals flow as smooth as possible. It’s been a wonderful and great experience working with you and we expect to do more and more business with you. I am happy to recommend your name to my entrepreneur club/group!

If you want real estate assistance from someone familiar with environmental challenges on real property, Shane is your guy!

We had the honor to work with Kori & Shane Billings and we couldn’t be happier with their services. We initiated the strenuous search to find a commercial piece of property in Tampa Bay. We found Kori and Shane were very professional, efficient and expedient in their quest to answer our questions. Although we are experienced investors on the residential side of real estate, this was our first commercial venture so we had to reach out on several occasions and they were always eager to help. We are very happy with the way the transaction was handled and having worked in the residential real estate side for over 12 years, we are happy to have met their team. There may be a lot of licensed agents out there, but many don’t have the same work ethic you’d expect especially in large transactions. We feel very satisfied having worked with the Billings. We look forward to more investments in the future.

I have had the privilege of working with Shane and Kori Billings for the past few years. They are awesome to work with. Shane and Kori are very professional, reliable, and extremely knowledgeable of the Tampa commercial real estate market.

Shane has been the most knowledgeable and professional realtor that I have worked with. Although he was representing the owner of the warehouse, he was very helpful and did a great job helping us through this process. He was very thorough and always available when needed while we were trying to get an industrial property for our business. He will be our go to guy when it comes to anything related to real state. Very pleased with him and Bridgewater Commercial Real Estate!

Laura Guroian was very helpful in finding a new place that I was in for a long time, she is very patient with everything. From the beginning until the time of signing the contract, she was very aware of everything that was perfect, thanks for all the support Laura, God Bless Always.

Laura Guroian worked hard to get us the right space and terms. She was always responsive and kept us updated. I highly recommend Laura!

This is the place to go for all of your commercial real estate needs! Kris was so great to work with. Very professional, responsive, and personable!

This is the place to go for your commercial real estate needs! Kris was so great to work with. They are very responsive and helped me with every single tiny detail. I can’t thank them enough.

I have worked with Kori Billings for years. She has always been very professional and obtained very good results. She’s honest, hard-working and detail-oriented. We are “repeat clients” multiple times over.

In the midst of a pandemic, we were so fortunate to have the guidance and expertise of Dee Maret to help us locate our terrific new office space. He took the stress out of what could easily have been a stressful time for us. Dee was extremely professional, immediately responsive and always available to us no matter the day or hour. He went above and beyond to provide insight and helpful input in all areas from lease negotiations right through to move-in day! We highly recommend Dee to anyone in need of commercial real estate excellence.

Kori was easy to work with and accessible , responsive and professional. Kori is also very knowledgeable, tech savvy and knows the Tampa market very well. Look forward to working with Kori in many more deals

Working with Bridgewater, Shane Billings, and Kori Billings was a wonderful experience. Both Shane and Kori were actively involved with the process every step of the way, assisting all parties, including the bank, wherever they could to make sure the closing went as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking representation in selling their business or buying a new one.

We had tried, unsuccessfully, to sell our equipment rental business along with the real estate for 3 years . . . we had had it listed with two different agencies, with no results. A like business in a neighboring town had the same problem, so we were quite surprised when we learned that after obtaining a different broker, the business had a buyer. We asked for the name of the broker and that’s how we discovered Kori and Shane Billings. From the moment we met with them, we felt comfortable and confident with them. Their approach to marketing us was much more professional and thorough. Shortly after signing with them, the pandemic hit us, and we thought our chances to sell were over. Imagine our surprise when Kori and Shane produced an interested and qualified buyer! Certainly, they have gone over and above what our expectations were, taking the stress off of us and presenting our business in the very best possible way, and representing our interests in working with the buyer’s lender. We absolutely recommend Kori and Shane Billings at Bridgewater Commercial Real Estate if you are truly interested in either selling or purchasing commercial real estate.

We are so excited that Kori Billings helped us purchased our first commercial property. She was incredibly professional and made sure were well informed throughout the process. This was our first experience buying commercial and did not know what to expect. Kori was a breathe of fresh air. I highly recommend you use Bridgewater Commercial Real Estate and ask for Kori.

I’ve had the privilege of seeing Dee in action on several occasions, and if you want to have a successful and smooth commercial real estate transaction you’re going to want to have him on your team. He’s well recognized in the industry, and his tact and professionalism can’t be beat. Dee sets clear expectations for his clients and delivers on his promises. He’s accessible throughout the entire process, and helps parties on both sides of the transaction so everyone walks away more than pleased. Thanks for all that you do, Dee.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Bridgewater Commercial Real Estate. My business is Triple M Video Productions LLC. I provided a virtual tour of a warehouse they are selling on 28th St. N in St. Petersburg. I met with both Kris Dumke and Dee Maret during the process and they both were professional and friendly throughout it all. Their knowledge is unsurpassed as well and you will find that out the instant you work with them. Just an absolute honor to work with both of them and they know exactly what it takes to succeed in commercial real estate. If you are looking for commercial real estate to buy or sell do yourself a favor and work with Bridgewater Commercial! They are simply the best in the business!

Shane did a great job in securing a tenant for our commercial building. The property had some constraints but Shane over came these issues to meet the needs of the tenant.

We have been working with Kori Billings for a few years in Pinellas County, and she is probably my favorite commercial leasing agent I’ve worked with in almost 20 years. She goes above and beyond, even when not required of her. High attention to detail, very responsive, great negotiator, and she’s brought 4-5 new leases over to my office building since Covid hit us all.

Great people who make you feel like family. They are great at communication and truly look out for you and your needs. Class act team at Bridgewater!

I am a commercial lender and have worked with Shane on three loan transactions for his clients.  I really enjoy working with him as he is a great communicator, is responsible and professional and truly is a great advisor to his clients.  I look forward to working with him on the next one!

Kori was amazing. She was on point, very knowledgeable and very responsible. Loved working with her, I highly recommend her hands down!!

Shane Billings helped us buy an office building and subsequently leasing it out. Both times, Shane has been very proactive and provided us with lot of inputs. Shane is very quick to respond to any query and sometimes went above and beyond realtor duties to find us additional information. I highly recommend Shane Billings!

Shane Billings was a pleasure to do business with. He is accessible, courteous, knowledgeable, and thorough. I would recommend Shane heartily to those seeking CRE services.

Shane helped my company find the perfect warehouse space that we needed for our production. The warehouse is a brand new 70,570 SF warehouse with a long term lease. Shane worked with us on several warehouses in the area until we finally found the correct one. It was a year long process with lots of negotiation. Shane was clearly on our side helping us the entire way. Shane provided numerous cash flow analyses to assist with our investors. I highly recommend Shane Billings for your real estate needs.

Shane Billings provided excellent service in finding us the right office to lease. After requesting information for numerous options, and visiting office spaces, we asked Shane for his thoughts…he summarized all of the various features, and provided cash flow analyses for each space option. Without Shane, we would not have found the best option for our needs! Thank you Shane! We’ll call you when our lease is up!

Shane did a great job helping our business find shop space quickly and affordably. I definitely would recommend working with Bridgewater to anyone.

“Kori and Shane, I want to again tell you how much I appreciate the work you did to make the sale ​of my True Value Equipment Rental business and real estate happen. I was impressed from the beginning with your work from the presentation package to Shane’s extra effort on the environment review. Thanks again!”

This was my first commercial property purchase, a Family Dollar store, and involved a 1031 intermediary. Shane wore many shoes and went over and beyond his real estate role. He was a true partner and looked out for my best interest. He advised me against staying under contract on a medical office property after key facts came to light due to research conducted on his own accord. Shane has great follow through, is responsive, and is objective/factual. He was a pleasure to do work with. I would do business again with Shane in a heartbeat and have already recommended him to a friend who has engaged Shane for his real estate search.

Shane Billings was exceptional! He is responsive, professional, and very knowledgeable about environmental issues which dominated the sale of our property. We never had to ask a question twice since he always responded quickly and with our needs in mind. I would use Shane again and again. He is a rare find in the brokerage business and a true partner. He was not looking for a quick sale….but the BEST sale. Thumbs up!

I had the pleasure of working with Shane Billings on a complex real estate transaction that involved an environmental impaired property in Tampa. Shane’s background and experience as an environmental professional was instrumental in successfully resolving the competing concerns of the parties, and he also was able to satisfy the concerns of the environmental regulatory agencies in a proactive and timely manner. I will not hesitate to involve Shane in other difficult real estate transactions.

I used Bridgewater Commercial Real Estate to find a location for our new office in Lakeland. They did it quickly and we were in that new office within 30-days! I can’t say enough great things about Bridgewater, and the realtor, Shane Billings. I’ve known Shane for over 10-years, and he is just an all around great person!

I recently worked with Kris Dumke on a real estate deal and had a great experience. He was extremely professional, diligent, and thorough. Being a mortgage lender, I have the opportunity to work with a lot of terrific real estate agents, and Kris and his team were terrific. I have also met many of the other Bridgewater agents and have nothing but great things to say about them. I highly recommend Kris and Bridgewater for all of your real estate needs!

I had the good fortune to have been referred to Shane for finding a medical office to purchase. He is professional and thorough in his work. I had two other realtors but it was Shane who found multiple offices within my search parameters including my future office the day it was put on the market. This is even more impressive because the other Realtors were from my area in Clearwater while he is in Wesley Chapel. I highly recommend Shane to anyone looking for a Realtor to find the commercial property they are looking for.

Kori is a true professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of Real Estate. She helped us through the process of selecting and buying our first commercial property. Her deal analysis, attention to details and communication throughout the process were outstanding. She is very patient in answering all questions and concerns. She shares with her customers all the pros and cons that might impact the decision not only short term but long term as well. Most of all, what sets her apart is her post sale customer service. She will call and follow up with you months after the transaction is completed to make sure you are all set and to let you know that if you need any additional help she is there. Dealing with real estate agents in last few years I can say that this is a rare and valuable quality. We look forward to working with Kori on many more projects in the future.

Dee Maret goes above and beyond the norm to be helpful and professional in his real estate transactions. He is very knowledgeable of the market, the trends and the process needed from start to finish. As a residential real estate consultant, I need a great commercial real estate professional to refer business to and Dee is my go-to guy. Thanks Dee for taking great care of the customers I send your way!

The Bridgewater Commercial team is a phenomenal to work with! Their service is outstanding, extremely easy to work with. I would highly recommend using them as they are a very knowledgeable and professional team!

I’ve known Kris and Dee fro over 4 years now. These are the guys you want on your team when it comes to CRE. They always make themselves available and have the experience to get any transaction done. Great guys and you can expect great service.

Kris Dumke goes above and beyond your expectations. Also, combined with Dee’s years of expertise, this team delivers a great level of professionalism, knowledge and service!

Kris and Dee are very knowledgeable, trustworthy, and communicate effectively. Awesome company!!! Awesome team!!!
