Client Testimonials

"ROCK went 'the extra mile' in terms of time and commitment to finding a qualified buyer for our unique property. I will be referring potential clients to ROCK in the future."

Jeffrey Grove

Trinity United Methodist Church

"Our Attorneys made changes to the lease and Lonna Miller was a huge help during the process."

Bob Eichelberger

Trans Union

"Our company has employed ROCK Commercial for the past five years to perform leasing services at our center in Etters, Pennsylvania. During that period, our anchor tenant, a national grocery store, vacated the space and we hired ROCK to find a replacement and lease up the balance of the shopping center. They did an outstanding job identifying potential replacements, shepherding the market study and then negotiating a LOI and subsequently a complex grocery store lease. They are very knowledgeable when it comes to the current local real estate market conditions and have been successful in leasing several of our retail spaces. Their level of service and integrity are second to none and I would have no hesitation in giving them the highest recommendation."
