I just wanted to let you know that Crown paid us the $xxx,xxx . We received it in the mail yesterday. They paid us a total of $xxx,xxx. As you may remember that is the value we determined. Thanks again for all your help. Please use me as a reference. If you are ever in Orlando, Florida I would like to meet you in person and treat you to a lunch or dinner. Thank you soooooooooooo much!
Excellent work - you exceeded my expectations – it is very comforting to know we have an expert to guide us through the next steps for managing our antenna leases effectively.
The product is exceptional! It was straightforward, thorough, informative, and persuasive. I was a bit hesitant to ask the church to approve a $500 dollar hourly fee for a company of which I had minimal knowledge…Your work, attentiveness to detail, and willingness to share your knowledge have sustained my faith, and leveraged the playing field for the church. Thank you so much.
Clear Wireless verbally approved the lease and is preparing documents for execution.
Thanks again, Ken, for all your great assistance.
Just a note to thank you again for your assistance in preparing a contract with T-Mobile. You were invaluable. We signed the contract a
couple of weeks ago, and T-Mobile now has signed off on their end of it. We have a sound basis on which to work, and that includes not
just the background research and careful legal thinking with which you were of such assistance, but also the relationship we've now built
up with T-Mobile: There's a real measure of trust now. Of course, the real relationship begins now! Thanks again!
Your report is excellent and has aided us in making our decision.
Your expertise is exceptional and shows throughout your examination of the TowerCo lease buyout proposal. It is very helpful to have your experience and subsequent insight into the cell tower business.
My dad was very happy with the information that you presented, and he wants to pay your bill. I believe that we will be negotiating for an increase, and would like to reserve the opportunity to call you (or have our attorney call you).
Everything in the assessment was fine and answered all the questions we needed answered. Thanks for the write up.
Thanks for your help,
As of now, our attorney is finalizing the language on the lease. We have agreed on terms you and I discussed. They went for the revenue sharing, $x,xxx monthly, x% escalation, and attorney fees. As soon as the lease is finished, the parties will execute. Thanks so much for your help with this.
The evening, the (Condo Association) unanimously voted to forego any further consideration of the (proposed lease buyout), regarding our T-Mobile lease. Your report was most informative and instrumental in helping the Board in making this decision.
Thanks again for all your information and advice, Ken. Making the call to you was one of the best decisions we've made all month!
My husband and I want to express our gratitude for your recent assistance with the transfer of our tower lease. In my occupation as a nurse I am blessed to often see the direct result of my work. Your position and business being transaction based would seem to lend to less awareness of the end result of your hard work. In the event that is the case please allow Todd and I to report the customer service we received from Michele made a lasting impression on us. Michele offered the perfect balance of professionalism with a personal touch. It meant a lot to us to have Michele's kind guidance with what was an unfamiliar process. Michele assured us her skill and caring attention is the standard of your company. For that we congratulate you and thank you for the commitment to our needs.
I have sent your invoice to our church office to get you a check. I shared your work with our board and they were duly impressed and appreciative. If you need a reference please let me know. I turned the report over to our administrative team so they will be contacting the companies you listed as potentially interested parties. Thanks again so much for helping is out.
Crown agreed within minutes to our counterproposal. We really want to thank you for your help.
I want to thank you for your efforts and time. It has been very informative and helpful to the family.
I just wanted to thank you again for the excellent service you provided to my family and I. I'm very lucky I found you. Your rates are very
reasonable and you know your stuff which is why we chose you. I am looking forward to working with you to find new carriers to add to my
It sounds like we are going to finalize the contract. I did take it through a lawyer and he pretty much agreed with all of the comments you made.... I really appreciate what you have done.
Thanks for the help on this, I'll use the money towards taking my family on a cruise next spring as my daughter is graduating from high school, and this will let us bump up a notch on the trip. Like my attorney told me, it's found money, and again appreciate the comments and lesson I learned here.
Thanks for all of your help. We received the offer we wanted
I've signed the lease with Western Wireless. Thank you very much for your good help in this. I thought you would like to know that they agreed to almost all the language.
I just wanted to thank you for your help. The conversations we had with you helped us to make the right decisions. Your expertise is very much appreciated.
Everything went very well. They accepted our offer and I want to thank you. I spoke with (our agent) and he mentioned that the agreement you negotiated is the highest he has ever done. Thank you for all of the help you have given us.
Thank you for helping my mom and for getting the lease moving along while making her feel comfortable with the process. We appreciate your best efforts and are grateful. We are glad that you have a business that helps people with these types of situations.
Thank you for the great consulting service. I would have been lost without you.
We are grateful for all of your assistance.
Wanted to let you know that I worked out a deal. I asked for a Dodge Charger, but they would not give me that! Might have gotten more, but I am happy with getting a year's worth of my daughter's college. Thanks for your help.
Things went exactly as you suggested they would. Your assistance was greatly appreciated- you have been very helpful in figuring out what to do.
Thanks for your help in the lease. I was successful in getting nearly everything I wanted.
Just got a letter stating that they are exercising our option, so we should start receiving our monthly checks any day. Thanks again for all your help with this. It was invaluable.
Your assistance was invaluable to us in making our decision. Thanks for all your help.
Thanks for the education. I believe I would have settled for less without your help.
Please feel free to use me as a reference. I am happy to make you look like a star to potential clients. You did a great job for me.
They drug their feet, but they gave me everything (we) asked for. Thanks for your help.
Thanks for all your wonderful help. We have our zoning hearing coming up. Not sure what will happen, but feel we have given it our best shot. Thanks again.
Thanks for your assistance.
Anyhow, thanks again for you assistance. A check was mailed last week. Also, feel free to use me as a referral for other potential customers.
Thank you for your excellent service. I am forwarding your information onto my attorney for him to use for future referrals.
(The consultation) has been totally invaluble. You can add me to your webpage (of testimonials). It was well worth the time and money.
Thanks for your help negotiating the ground lease for my client. Your advice made it easier to help us understand the economic underpinnings to the cell tower industry and set a lucrative price accordingly. Feel free to use me as a reference.
For a very quick review, it is a very thorough one – with many excellent points. You have obviously done a lot of this, because your
recommendations are excellent and the way you incorporated the changes and explained them in margin notes leaves us with no questions.
Thanks much again for your very good work. We will try to get all of your recommended changes incorporated into the final lease.
We feel lucky that we found you on the internet. If ever you need a reference from a wary potential customer, we would be happy to pass on reassurances. In the meantime, we’ll keep you posted on how our project proceeds and request more assistance if we get into a sticky place during final negotiations.
Your counsel and information have been quite valuable. Thanks.
We are currently getting close to finalizing a deal. We greatly appreciate all of your help and enjoyed working with you.
The tower is built and we have received our option and first few monthly checks.
I thank you for all of your input. If you ever need a good reference, please feel free to call upon me.
You have done a great job. Please feel free to use me on your website as a reference.
Thank you for all of your in depth industry knowledge and technical assistance. Please feel free to use us as a reference for future customers.
Thank you for your guidance in this negotiation. I ended up with ($xxx)/month and a wireless package that includes two lines as well as High speed internet. All told with the free long distance and also the booster and other equipment they are providing for the house and car the package will be nearly ($xx,xxx) this year.
Your report was well received by the City Council.
The board is taking your recommendation. Thanks for all your work on this; the board was very happy with the output.
I wanted to report back to you so you would have some comparables if you needed them. Again, thanks for putting your site out there because when we first got the call, I had NO clue what to do.
Thank you very much for your help. We actually just signed the settlement statement yesterday with (the lease buyout company) and "buy out" funds are in our account.
Thank you for your work on behalf of (the) Association. The other owners reviewed your summary, and feel that you did an an excellent job. In fact, they are thanking me for finding you.
Thank you very much for your help, expertise, and your window into this little segment of the cell industry.
I appreciate your follow-up. I am confident in my decision, thanks to our discussion on the phone, to just keep my lease as it is. I appreciate your help, research, and consultation on this matter very much. I just felt better to get a professional opinion to verify the opinion I already had,to keep it as it is and not accept the buyout. I look forward to keeping you in mind for further consultaion as needed in the future.
Thank you for your help on this. Although we have not received the final signed contract from them, it looks like they have agreed to (the suggested rate).
Thank you so much for your insights into the cell tower issues. If I do have any additional questions, I will certainly give you a call.
We sold the property. Your valuation was of great assistance. I have referred you to the buyer of the property and told him you are a great consultant. I have enjoyed working with you. Thanks for all your help. If you find yourself in Denver again, please stop by.
Just wanted to let you know Sprint/Nextel just renewed. Your opinions were of great value to us in the negotiation. I appreciate your involvement. Thanks again.
I need to present (your conclusions) to a General Assembly of the whole entire Parish. Many thanks for your quick reply and your diligent work..
Based on your advice, we rejected the offer. We appreciate your insight into the wireless business.
The low tech telephone conference call went very well. Everyone on the Board in attendance agreed it was money well spent.
It clarified and distilled the essential information from the morass of paper we sent you, allowed everyone here to
understand the issues and economics of the tower and broadband businesses and provided us with enough insight to insure a
unanimous decision on the part of the Board as to how to proceed from there. There is nothing like good, reliable information
to make the decision-making process easy.
As a volunteer organization we depend heavily on donations. Your services have helped us devote our limited time and energies to protecting the public.
Thank you for your generous contribution of half your fee.
Thank you for your candor and frank response. I knew I could rely on you to set me straight, and I concur. You are definately a super star in my book. You are easy to communicate with and right to the point. I appreciate your assistance and guidance.
Thanks for all the help.
Thanks for all of your assistance. With your assistance, we were able to achieve a greater return than we would have been able to do on our own. Should we lease, add, or otherwise acquire more cell sites, we will surely contact you first.
Thanks for the info. It was helpful and will aid in negotiation.
We have not yet heard from Sprint/Nextel yet, but we will contact you when we do. Thanks for your help, and I will look forward to working with you again in the future.
Ken, We just got our renewal from Cingular. They have been adding additional equipment and just renewed with the increase. Your synopsis was correct. We appreciate all your help.
We wish to thank you for your help. You have been extremely helpful and we are greatful to have found you.
We just completed our discussions with (the carrier) yesterday. They agreed to pay ($xx,xxx) at (the first site) and ($xx,xxx) at (the second site.) Your estimates were dead on and we got the increases due to your analysis. (The carrier) even asked to see your report. (PARAPHRASED FROM VERBAL CONVERSATION)
I think you've answered everything and gotten me to where I'm pretty comfortable sitting still and not doing anything right now. Thanks for all the help.
I appreciate your help and honesty. Thanks for all your help. Roger and I really appreciate it.
Have someone like you who can accurately appraise the situation and clients who are not hungry or appear not to be hungry for the income. That is the secret to negotiation. Send the invoice to me and it will be paid within the week. Thanks for your help and you can use this email as a reference.
Verizon agreed to $xxxx.xx. Thank you for your services, which proved very valuable. I will no doubt be contacting you in the future.
After taking in your suggestions it appears that you are correct. After speaking to you and reading your report, I have been approached by three different company's wanting to buy the remainder of the lease. Again thank you, you made the decision much easier.
We finalized our deal with Cingular today. They were reluctant to come up to $xxxx.xx, but they agreed. I appreciate all of your help.
Thank you for your consultation. The analysis you provided was extremely helpful.
The matter has now settled based, in large part, on the work you did.
I want to thank you for your assistance. Your advice has once again paid for itself.
We are glad we found you. You provide a great service.
I believe, at this point, it looks like we have a signed option which will hopefully become a site in the future.
They will be before the County Planning Commission for approval soon.
Thanks for your advice!
Thanks(for your advice), I feel much better about all of this now.
I think we made it – thanks for all your help.
Thank you for the knowledge on this website. I have been searching and all I could find to date was listing services that required a fee. You saved me wasting the listing fee. You are certainly appreciated!
Your evaluation was very helpful. The board decided that we did in fact wish to sell.
Everything else is in order. We truly appreciate your help.
Thanks again, Ken. Your help was incredibly valuable.
Your insight has been very much appreciated. Thank you for offering to continue answering questions. I think I might have a couple more as we go forward.
Thank you for your professionalism & help negotiating my lease with T-Mobile. I had contacted a competitor
(that's a joke) prior to you and the arrogance they displayed in our initial phone call put me off right away. It seemed that they were only interested in what they could get from me.
I have negotiated more than 2,500 real estate contracts in the past 20 years and knew that, after reading the initial contract, I needed a professional to help me. Because it is David vs Goliath I wanted to make sure that I had the right size sling & rock, if you know what I mean.
I was impressed with your knowledge of cell tower leases and your easy & direct demeanor and your fee was actually cheap compared to what I will receive. I am glad that you will be available for consultation (if necessary) when construction begins.
I would strongly encourage anybody who is in a position to negotiate with a cellular company to hire Ken - it is money well worth spending.
You ought to know that the chair of committee charged with looking after the cell phone tower and that piece
of property has told me more than once that engaging your services was the best money we could have spent.
(Of course it helps that so far things seem to have gone in our favor!)
Anyway, your timely advice is appreciated as always.
You will also be happy to see that we stood our ground, and after much posturing by Cingular, they gave in this past Friday, and agreed to the $xxxx.xx a month starting lease rate. We're very appreciative to you for your guidance with this.
You have answered all of our questions and gave me the info I needed to renegotiate a new lease at XX% of our
existing lease payment. I should be signing the new lease later this afternoon upon review of our attorney.
Thanks for your help.
Your assistance in this matter was very helpful. We have agreed to terms with TMobile and are in the process
of putting together a lease.
Thanks again, Ken. I'm sure we'll be doing business again some day
They offered $xx,xxx so we went with that.
Thank you for your assistance!
Finally received the signed lease. They said my option payment would likely come in the next month or so. Thanks for the advice.
Ken, I cannot even imagine doing this without the proper information! Thanks. Have you heard from (our friend). We recommended you very highly.
Thanks for your help. Although you confirmed what I already thought, it was well worth it to get your opinion.
Just dropping you a line to let you know that we held to our asking price For American Towers proposed expansion
at our site. They met our demand for $(amount withheld) Additional monthly rent. We did give in to 2 5-yr
additional renewals, but that only Guarantees us 10 more years of added income!
Thank you for your expertise in this matter. If it wasn't for your consultation We would most definitely have settled for less!
Again, Thank You!
The owner asked me to thank you for your advice. We were counting on your advice and you came through for us.
Ken, I just got a phone message from a woman at Crown Castle saying they wanted to go ahead with the revised
lease at an additional $xxx/mo and will be sending the papers!!
I thought it was a dead deal.
Anyway, Ken, thanks again for your help.
Ken, Thank you for your timely response. We were actually suprised at how quickly you got us an answer back and greatly appreciate your services.
Thank you very much. This has been very helpful. For someone like me- this is not my field of expertise, so getting your help is something we definately needed to do.
Thanks for your help on giving us a reference to negotiate from. We got much of what we asked for.
Late on Friday afternoon I was able to talk to the representative and we were able to come to a good agreement. (We received $xxxx.xx/mo) That is about what I wanted to end up with anyway, so we are happy with this. We should be signing within 30 days although it sounds like the commencement date won't be for another 6-8 months. I know we couldn't have gotten this without your advice! Please put me on your reference list. I would be glad to talk to anyone about your services and how they helped us get the best deal we could!
I want to thank you very much for all of your services, which were extremely helpful during our due diligence process.
Thanks for all of your assistance and it has been a real pleasure working with you.
I wanted to let you know that Cingular has signed the lease extension and that we are finally done. Thank
you for your assistance,I would not have had as favorable a result (without your assistance). I responded
to a reference call on you a few weeks ago and want you to know that I will be more than willing to take
any future calls should you need the assistance.
Please send me an invoice or billing statement with your federal tax ID number and I will send you payment immediately. Again,I sincerely appreciate your efforts and professionalism.
Thank you for your help. You are obviously very very knowledgeable about this and for people like us without any experience with these types of leases, you have us gain perspective.
Ken and xxxx, sorry it has taken so long to respond. I have been swamped. Anyway, I want to thank you again
for all your help. I wanted to make you aware of the deal I was able to get with T-Mobile as you both helped
me get it.
I am getting $xxxx.xx per month (the first year) and a x% annual increase over the preceding year term, each subsequent year from T-Mobile. I am very pleased with all your assistance, it helped me feel that I struck the best deal I could without driving T-Mobile down the street, so to speak.
Ken, I am very happy with the results. I know that if I had never spoke with you I would have only asked for $xxxx/mo, and may have perhaps gotten to $xxxx/mo- but I never would have asked for (what we ended up with.) Thank you for your help.
We were wondering how much we owe you, so that we can get a check to you as soon as possible. We appreciate all your knowledge and insight.
After months of negotiating and other administrative delays, the Church signatories should finally be signing the lease this week. Please accept our sincere gratitude for your involvement.
(Your analysis) was very clear and extremely helpful. We're very close to finishing negotiations with American Tower. (We agreed to $xx,xxx a year in base rent with a x% annual increase plus a x% co-location fee on any new carriers). We were glad we had your analysis in the backs of our minds so we knew what we could expect to get from them, and we're very happy with the results! Thanks for the work you did.
Thanks for your help and I will make any referrals possible. You facilitated a knowledge based decision.
Thank you for the quality work. We plan on following your advice in the ongoing negotiations. I’ll make sure to recommend you if I cross paths with other owners who have the same issues facing them.
We met with Sprint. They gave us a proposal and I understand that it was approved at the last Board meeting. With the
advice we received from you, we decided to ask for $xxxx per month, and we got it. The also offered to pay a fee for
the option -- about $xxxx as I recall. They do plan to start construction ASAP.
We certainly benefited from your services. Send us an invoice. We'll gladly pay.
Thanks for all the information and suggestion; it is all very much appreciated.
Verizon agreed to $xxxx.xx and agreed to the other terms you suggested except for term. I appreciate your help- we definately got more with you involved than we would have otherwise.
I believe I can speak for (my municipal client) in saying that the services you have provided to date completely fulfilled our expectations and were entirely satisfactory.
Thanks again for your advice. It is good work that you are doing, trying to keep things honest and aboveboard for people.
I can't thank you enough for all of your help! What a smart gig you've got going with this business. take care.
(The lease rate you suggested) worked! Thank you.
Thank you for the telephone call and the information you provided me. It helped immensely.
We received your email. Teriffic report- we really appreciate it. Any chance we get to refer you, we will. Load of thanks.
After several calls back and forth, Crown finally agreed to pay an additional $xxx per month on the lease. Thanks for your imput and help on this deal.
Crown eventually did agree to (what you suggested). We appreciate all of your help and could not have gotten this far without your guidance.
Our Board of Directors chose company X. They increased their price and have committed to a minimum of 4 carriers with a goal of 4. Thanks for all your help with this. We will be finalizing a contract within the next week or so.
We recieved an offer of $xxx,xxx from ATC. Thank you for your help on this. We greatly appreciate it.
I haven't received the executed contract yet, but (we agreed to) $xxxx starting now plus $xxx more
starting in 2015.
Your advice was very helpful. I would definately recommend your services.
A note in follow up of our T-Mobile negotiations. The tower is in operation, the contractors were quite amiable, and I'm quite happy. Overall, I am quite satisfied and thank you for your help.
We just were notified that AT&T/Cingular are exercising their option to extend our cell tower contract until 2013. Wanted to let you know since you were so helpful in advising us to stand firm. Hope your business is doing well.
The board wanted me to call and thank you for your assistance. They are dealing directly with Sprint now and your information was very helpful in figuring out what to do.
We greatly appreciate the way you handled this. Please send us a bill and we will be happy to pay it.
Your report is perfect insomuch as it exceeds our expectations and provides us with sound basis for making decisions re: contract renewals and buyout "threats".
I have received the offers from the companies you suggested. I still need to compare the terms and conditions (but) these are a minimum of $xx,000 to $xx,000 higher than the original offer we had. Thanks so much for your help in this effort so far.
We finalized an agreement on the lease extension. I appreciate your help. I firmly believe now in the testimonials on your website. It was definately money well spent.
You have been very helpful and informative. You are a good man and I hope that I can refer you some additional clients in the future.
(Your report) was very helpful. Thank you for all your help.
Thank you for your advice. They have agreed to the $x,xxx per month with (x% escalation). Your assistance
in dealing with them was a true blessing. I will keep you posted.
Our Best Wishes For The New Year!
Just wanted to let you know that I closed on a deal with TriStar yesterday. I have no doubt that bringing you into the picture helped me get a better deal. Thanks for everything. If you're ever in the area give me a call and we'll have lunch.
We were generally quite pleased with your results. I think (we) will be using the "more aggressive"
We are very satisfied with the report you sent. Your report provided exactly the information we needed.
The guys were very impressed with your knowledge and assistance, as was I.
Thank you for your very helpful assessment of our lease and the offers we have received.
Thanks again for your help.
We have just engaged the district's general counsel, who loved your report and will follow all your recommendations. Thank you so much for all your help and advice.
Thank you for your help. We do not have any further questions. Your analysis was very helpful.
Your analysis was great. I really appreciate the work you put into it. I will definitely recommend your services to anyone who presents to me a similar situation.
Thanks for the advice. We have signed the contract. Talk to you when we hear from (the other tower owner) in the future.
Your help… I don't even know what to say. Without your help, I would have never gotten what I did. I really appreciate what you have done for us. I will not hesitate to use (your services) again.
Ken, I wanted to tell you that you have been very helpful and patient through this matter. Thank you so much for your help.
Hi Ken – well, we just got our first check from Verizon – thanks to you – and now I have someone scouting for ATT. I met with him briefly today and told him he would have to work through you.
Your recommendation (regarding the option term) worked out perfectly for me. You were great to work with and this was definitely money well spent.
Verizon has verbally agreed to $x,xxx/mo (what you suggested). Thank you for all your good advice and feel free to send us your invoice. We will keep you posted throughout the process so you have complete information for your files.
I am very glad we found you. You answered a number of questions that we probably would not have researched ourselves and helped us not make a bad decision.
We received a new offer from Tristar. We would have never gotten this far without you. I know other tower owners and I will definitely refer you to them.
I thought I would update you as to the status of our negotiations with Crown Castle. We have agreed upon a $xxxx increase in the monthly rate changing the installments to a total of $xxxx per month. The lease will be extended for an additional 30 years. Thanks for all your assistance you provided, it was of great value to us.
Thank you for all of your help. I feel that you have served us very well and I am grateful for the benefit of your knowledge. I think that we are close to a deal with Sprint/Nextel or at least close to a conclusion of the negotiations, and that so far, these negotiations have gone much better than would have been the case without your intervention.
Ken was sure prompt and helpful with his evaluation.
Sounds like we should hold tight.
Sounds like good advice to me. Well worth the fee.
Thanks for your analysis.
We appreciate your help. This is not something that I deal with often. I won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone that I come across who needs help with a wireless tower lease.
All is well. American Tower has agreed to the terms that you recommended with annual rent increases based on the CPI for urban dwellers. I did give them an option for additional xxx square feet of ground space to hold additional equipment. But I have plenty of space. Thanks for the sound advice
We greatly appreciate your help. The (Crown Offer) has caused great consternations and “oh, my goshs” at our American Legion meetings. Your report has helped dislodge a number of misperceptions we have had and has helped us understand the Crown proposal and put together a response. We greatly appreciate your expertise.
Thank you for your reply. I appreciate the thoroughness with which you respond to my inquiries and updates. I have peace of mind about this situation – peace of mind that I wouldn’t have without the benefit of your counsel. I tend to think that Md7 was much more flexible with us after having found out that we were consulting with Steel in the Air, although there is no way for me to know this for sure.
I wish you much success – you are fulfilling a very important role for landowners like us.
(We) contacted (Verizon) last week and they gave us the $xxxx lease per month. I don't believe we got the signing bonus. Thanks for the information it definitely helped.
Thank you, Peter
Thank you so much! I have to say you are the first consultant that I have employed in the last 30 years that actually gave me a recommendation without the "it depends" disclaimer. You believe in your research, knowledge, and negotiating skills.
Your conclusion was my first instinct since AT&T first contacted me. I believe doing your homework is never a bad idea. I am glad your conclusion is the same as mine!
Have a great evening -- Jennifer
Ken, we proposed $x,xxx, and keeping the CPI increase. They agreed to it. Thanks for all your help and bill us accordingly.
The lease was signed up and delivered to the consultant from T-Mobile. We are very appreciative of your efforts and your quick response. Please feel free to use the Diocese as a reference for any future clients.
Thanks! I got approval for $xxxx. Appreciate your help. Susan
I meant to mention this to you earlier. You can use me as a reference. I am extremely satisfied with your services. I so appreciate all that you have done for us. Our offer is going to committee this week and have been told by (Crown) that it should be approved. If it goes through you put an additional $xx,xxx in our pockets !! I will let you know when it is approved. Thank you !
We have decided to hang on to the towers for awhile. Your appraisal was very helpful and much appreciated!
I forwarded your (report) along to the principals. It was just what we needed to chart strategy. Many thanks.
Thanks for the interesting and informative report. Your information is very helpful and clear, and useful. I'll definitely follow your suggestions. Thanks again, Stephan
I was impressed with Ken`s knowledge of the business and look forward to working with him in the future.
Just wanted to let you know that the Board met on Tuesday and took your advice, deciding not to renegotiate the lease with T-Mobile.
The Board and the community were very appreciative of your report - its clarity and the information you were able to share with us. It gave us the confidence to take the decision that most of us were inclined toward by providing information that we did not previously have access to.
Thank you for your assistance on this matter.
Thank you for your evaluation and guidance. I wanted to let you know the final outcome. We have agreed on the following: $xxxx.xx/mo and x% escalation per year. I am pleased with the deal and I want to thank you again for your guidance and support.
The background you provided and the reasoning that went into your recommendation was very enlightening.
I always felt that the site was very valuable, but I was getting nervous about continually turning them down because of the very scare tactics that you referred to in your letter.
Your help has been a blessing to me and to (our school). Thanks so much!
We finalized at $xxxx/mo, x% yearly increase, and $xxxx option money for 18 months.
Thanks for your help in this matter.
Tri Star paid a hefty lump sump for the remainder of (the tower company’s) lease and mom signed an extension for a percentage of income with a minimum that exceeded (their) best offer. The information that we received from you proved invaluable. We would like to thank you for all of your information and help. Jim and family.
This is exactly what I needed. Thanks for your quick response and informative report.
Thank you for your assessment. I enjoyed reading it as I have little knowledge of that industry. It’s great to have a better understanding of how things work and what not.
Thanks to you and Steel In The Air, Inc., we have a lease that our clients are happy with and I think should protect us against early flight by (the FM broadcaster).
You guys are the best.
Thanks for your help in the evaluation process. ATC agreed to $x,xxx per month until the expiration of the original lease and then $x,xxx per month thereafter.
The lease term is 30 years (5 year renewal increments). I commend you for your efficiency and the ability to impart your wisdom. It definitely gave me confidence in the negotiation proces
Ken, thanks very much for the quick turnaround on the report, with which we were very impressed. We found the report to be very informative and easy to understand. We have incorporated your recommendations into a formal lease proposal to Clearwire and look forward to receiving their response.
I must say with your advice on our last exchange of offers on my existing tower went well. Coupled with your web blog, these gave me the confidence to refuse the claims of Md7 that the second tower on my site could be moved if a rent reduction was not forthcoming. Currently they are installing the second tenant on that tower and I should be receiving a rent increase for that. Thank you again. The fee you charged was very reasonable and has been useful twice. Best money I ever spent.

Ken: Thank you so much for your expertise. I would recommend your talents to anybody that has cell equipment on their property. Gypsy was a pleasure to work with too. Thank you kindly.
Thanks Ken! I actually understand cell towers now. I’ll let you know how we use your assessment.
Thanks for your report. It was very impressive and informative.
I pretty much got everything you said I would. $xxxx/month and they gave me everything else you mentioned. Clearwire just accepted the proposed lease.
Thanks for your help!
Thank you for your assessment. I have not received a bill from you yet and just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your work on this and it has helped us push for higher rents.
If you got my email you know we are done. I cannot thank both of you enough for all your help. It has been a long road and you guys have been very patient with me. With this sale I am now able to plan my retirement and can enjoy the end of my life without the banks breathing down my neck. What a feeling!!!! If I can ever help you two with anything, just ask! Again, my wife and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
This has certainly been worth it. You have been a tremendous resource and if anyone comes asking, I will certainly tell them to use your services.
I have advised our church for several years on cell antenna leasing issues. Although I am a lawyer by trade, we engaged Steel-in-the-Air to consult with us on several renegotiation issues. Their expertise in the cell tower industry has proved invaluable and has been a very good investment.
I struck a deal with T-Mobile for $x,xxx per month, fixed for 5 years, with xx% increases in two 5-year renewal terms. We are waiting for their lease renewal document, so nothing is firm until that is in place, but I do not expect any surprises.
Thanks very much for you good help.
I was looking at your website yesterday and found it very informative. I also saw your client testimonials and realized I probably didn’t tell you that I was successful with negotiating a couple of our renewals:
- Cingular was paying us $x,xxx/month. Blackdot wanted to reduce the rent in their next renewal to $x,xxx with termination rights. I was able to successfully negotiate a new 5 year term, with 2 five year options, at $x,xxx/month, earning us an extra $50K during their next term.
- T-Mobile was paying us $x,xxx/month. Md7 gave us 2 options: (1) reduce the rent to $x,xxx/month, with a 24 month rent holiday and no renewal bumps, and 10 year rent guarantee, or (2) $x,xxx/month, no rent holiday, no renewal bumps, 10 year rent guarantee – or they would seek another location. We declined their offer, they then sent me a letter of renewal of the lease as is, which would be a 5 year renewal to start next March.
Your report was invaluable to me in my ability to negotiate these rates. So thank you again for your hard work on that.
Your summary was very helpful. I am glad to have found you and your services. Please use me as a reference.
Ken, thanks a lot. I feel a lot better and more secure in knowing what to do and not being a ping pong ball between all the companies that want to buy my leases. (When we started,) I had no clue what to do with this- as I imagine most people don’t.
I have not had the chance to compliment you on the work you performed for the City. I believe it was exactly what we needed and the results were very well presented.
Found your report very thorough and helpful, now waiting for CC to call again to state our position. No questions at this time.
Hi, Ken. Wanted to let you know that today I received a letter from T-Mobile notifying me that as of Sept.27th, 2010 T-Mobile West Corporation hereby commences the lease.
I want to thank you for your help in acquiring this lease and hope all is well.
Well it looks like we are getting in the home stretch on this part of this process. Thank you for all your hard work, integrity and honesty as we have worked this out. Your service has truly been a blessing from God.
Serious progress has been made since we retained you. (Retaining your services) really has been advantageous for us. Sincerely,
We are just about to sign the lease agreement for the cell tower. Thank you for all your work on this matter. We look forward to working with you again.
Hi, thank you for all your help with our contract. I was able to up the rent to $xxxx a month.
To Steel in the Air, Inc.
Thanks for all of your help in evaluating our communication site. We appreciate it.
We have reviewed the report and have found it to be extremely helpful. Please forward the invoice to me so that we can get a check out to you.
The report is well done and addresses many of the points brought out by my Board. We appreciate your timely services.
Your report was excellent. It provided us a lot of valuable information. It was well drafted and informative. We will definitely be able to use it in our negotiations.
You are very articulate and rationale. Your information have proven to be very valuable to us and was well worth what we paid for it.
The Executive Director and I have reviewed our assessment and found it to be very helpful. We did have a phone conference with Black Dot and declined AT&T offer to renegotiate a new lease. We are very satisfied with and thank you the work you completed.
Thanks Ken. We'll get this finalized soon. It's been a great learning experience for us. Thank you for your expertise.
My attorney received the (signed) contract last week… Your help was instrumental and extremely valuable.
Add another notch on your belt. I proposed your suggested offer to them and they accepted without any changes. Thanks for your help.
Just wanted to let you know for your database that we got $xxx,xxx for the lease from Crown. It was a pleasure doing business with you. You were of great assistance.
(The report was) very good – client was very satisfied and (you provided the) internal cover he needed with his board, too. Thanks.
I gotta tell ya, if you are a cell tower landlord and need help with any cell tower related issues, these are the people for you. They have no conflicts of interest, are friendly, knowledgeable and (honest) beyond anyone's expectations. The folks there, Deb, Gypsy and Ken should be the only people you speak with. I've been in business a long time. This is the first time an attorney spoke to me, for quite some time, advised me that no changes to my lease were necessary, told me I didn't need his service any further and refuses to charge me.
These folks are a throwback to a time in America when people were more interested in helping you rather than them filling their pockets.
My father and his lawyer are both very pleased with the report you provided us on the cell tower. If you can send us a bill, I will have my father send you a check immediately. I do hope that we will be able to call you again when we are actually at the process of negotiating.
Once again, Thanks!
Thank you for the very thorough report on the Unison offer and the review of our cell site . We certainly have learned a lot through this process and my wife and I feel that the smartest thing we did was retain you for the evaluation. My wife and I now have a much clearer understanding of the value and problem areas the leases provide to us. We appreciate your timely report.
I have been checking my bank account and at 4:27 the $xxx,xxx transfer appeared in my account. Now I feel relieved and know that the deal is actually a reality. I really cannot thank both of you enough and the Steel In the Air (and Cell Tower Attorney) organization for the very professional and great job you did for me. I received a call last week from an older gentleman from the Washington DC area about his considering to work with Steel In the Air about a buyout or rent increase and I was happy to tell him about the very positive experiences I have had working with you folks. I wish you all peace, happiness and the very best of everything that life has to offer. I feel sad that I will not be working with you anymore but I will always be thinking about you guys and hope that I can refer to you as my friends. It would really be nice if I had several more towers on my property and then we could continue to work together but then again I guess that would be greedy and I am not greedy but I am so very thankful for the way this deal turned out and I know that the deal would not have been possible if it was not for Steel In the Air. Well ... I guess I have to say good-bye and God bless and again Thank You, especially Ken and Neil for everything. Please feel free to use me as a reference for others that are thinking of doing business with Steel In the Air.
We just received the lease amendment and the signing bonus and I have a check I need to send to you. We appreciate all of your assistance. It worked out as you said it would.
Ken, Thanks. (The report) was very helpful and thorough.
Based on the four year outcome of our consult with you, I am willing to provide an unconditional recommendation to any prospective customers that are interested in references. There is a good chance that we would have lost at least $24,000 in revenue over the past four years without the benefit of your knowledge and advice.
I just want to let you know that I reached an agreement with Crown Castle at $xxxk, thanks to your report, which I forwarded to them to show the logic of the bottom line price. You earned your fee 10x over and I want to thank you for your help. Thanks again.
I really appreciate the depth that you went into with your assessment. I am very happy with your report and glad that I contacted you. It seems like this is an industry that very few people have information about unless you work in the industry.
Thank you for forwarding your cell tower analysis to Trinity Lutheran Church. It served us well in our decision making process to not release our current contract with AT&T.
Ken: Thank you for your helpful answers over the past several months, and your patience. None of this would have been possible but for your report and your willingness to continue your help to us. Again, please accept my deepest gratitude.
I browsed (the assessment) and looks very informative and thorough... thanks Ken. One of those few times we are getting real value for our $$, esp. considering the assist in sourcing competing offers and offering to evaluate them in comparison. Thanks again, I’ll send you what other offers we get... thanks.
(Neil and you) both did a superior job. I am really happy with the results. I have recommended you to a few other people.
Thank you for your help. And thank you for getting the assessment done very quickly. We were very pleased.
I wanted to say again that your report was excellent. The President of the company, our big 6 accounting firm, and myself all found it very enlightening and helpful. We very much appreciate your assistance.
The report is very good and is exactly what we needed. We will use your services again when (our other leases come up for expiration).
We received the offer from Md7 and didn’t really know what to do with it. None of us had dealt with this issue. I told another member of the church that there had to be a company that did this type of thing- that worked for our side. I did a search for cell tower company contracts on the internet and your site popped up. I am glad we found you. Your report was just what we were looking for. I work with a number of towns and municipalities and have already let one of them that has cell towers know that they need to use your services. I thak you and the Church thanks you for your efforts. (Paraphrased from telephone discussion)
They accepted the offer subject to final Management approval. It would appear, subject to some unforseen circumstances that things will proceed to a closing. Our tower experince from start to finish has been a good one and very rewarding. The input we have recieved from Ken Schmidt and Steel in the Air played a major role in making that happen! Many thanks!!
Ken, I am very grateful for Steel in the Airs assistance. It is a pleasure doing business with you.
They approved (what you recommended). Thanks for your invaluable help.
I received your assessment and wish to commend you and your staff on such a professional, complete, and informative job. I have built my entire business career on surrounding himself with exceptional people and am gratified to know that SITA is now part of my team and that SITA will be look out for his best interest regarding his cellular tower. Thank you. (Paraphrased from phone call from client)
We received your report. It was well put together and very informative. The people (at the Church) to whom I passed it around thought it was thorough and well worth the money.
Ken, we found that the value we received your services was well worth the cost. You confirmed that we were on the right track. We will be using you again in the future. (paraphrased from phone call with client)
