"I am sincerely grateful for your company's professionalism is getting us into our second Nothing Bundt Cakes location. My new landlord commented to me that he thoroughly enjoyed working with such first class pro's that were on top of every detail. He was completely impressed. I was equally impressed with your attention to detail in building a top-notch Tour Book for our area. TRS' comments and recommendations during LOI and Lease negotiations culminated in us getting a fantastic deal on the site we selected. Thank you for your superior service! I look forward to working with ya'll on bakery #3. "

"From the first call I received introducing Nothing Bundt Cakes until the final execution of a Lease, the overall experience in dealing with TRS Real Estate was “Nothing Bundt Good”. Their representatives acted promptly and professionally, with a very “hands on” approach, from site selection through the lease negotiation process. It was a pleasure working with the TRS team!"
"Lauren and her team at The Retail Strategy have gone above and beyond for us at Little Nest Portraits and we could not be more grateful. As an emerging franchise we needed a real estate firm who would take the time to truly understand our business and become part of our operations team. Retail Strategy has become more than a partner to us, they are family. We've received comments form our owners like "everyone there is just so nice" and "they explain hard-to-understand real estate challenges to me in a way that is so easy to get." We first met when we had a studio owner who had lost her lease and was very distressed. Now that owner is now happily operating a studio, has one of the best starting months on record in our brand! I cannot recommend Lauren and her team enough - they are kind, classy, smart, and knowledgeable. They have supported us in ways I didn't even know was possible, and I cannot recommend them enough."
“I was working as the Director of Real Estate for Chili’s when I first hired Lauren as my broker and asked her to manage the Austin, San Antonio and McAllen, TX markets for me. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I immediately recognized her as a young driven broker who was eager to work hard, earn a great reputation and prove herself. After nearly 6 years, Lauren continues to exceed my expectations by delivering top-notch work and service. She is a wonderful, honest, genuine person that always treats everyone with professionalism and respect and I truly love working with her. I am always happy and eager to recommend her and her team to anyone seeking a top-notch brokerage firm because of the great service I continue to receive from them.”
