I'm thankful we made the decision to utilize the team at GLD. They were well versed in the local commercial real estate market, values and current economic conditions. They also educated us on factors we hadn't considered internally, which ultimately benefited us by selling for 96% of our asking price. GLD made the entire experience seamless overall, the result was very positive.

We owned an eight-acre section of land on the SW side of Cedar Rapids for over 15 years. We tried selling the property on our own for years without success. After partnering with Angie Glick of GLD Commercial, we were able to complete the sale in a short period of time. Angie was thorough in her communications, keeping us up to date on what was going on during each step of the process. We felt like we had a true partner who was advising and educating us along the way, always with our best interest in mind. We recommend Angie to anyone looking to buy or sell property!

Second, she found us an office space that suits all our needs – right size, reasonable price, good location and fiber optic internet in place. Angie is a real champ, a hard worker who is creative and never gives up. When it comes to commercial real estate in Cedar Rapids, she’s a gem.

We found our new business space with the help of Erica. Forever patient and always welcoming, she is just what I needed as I endured a year long search for a space that did everything I needed it to within a budget I could afford! You don’t want to feel pressured into a space that isn’t right, and you don’t want to feel like you are bugging your realtor when you have “one more space” you’d like to check out. Erica was exactly what I needed through this process and I had a great time working with her!

It is our immense pleasure to recommend Erica Seelman and the group at GLD Commercial as a real estate agent for any individual or company searching for commercial real estate. We were renting a space and the lease was set to end and we needed to buy or rent new space fast.

We found Erica (and the entire GLD group) to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality.

We are pleased to recommend Erica Seelman to anyone looking to buy or sell commercial property. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion, and if we ever need to move again, she will be our first choice in real estate agents.
