“Congratulations on your highlight in St. Louis Commerce Magazine on Investing in the St. Louis Region. You are to be commended for your enthusiasm and drive to develop St. Louis.”

– Michael McMillian-License Collector City of St. Louis

“Please excuse my delay in writing to you. Since the closing of the sale of the Beaux Arts Building in August, ….As you may know, I have been represented by a number of real estate brokers during the 23 years I have had properties in St. Louis. However, not one of them has represented me as well as you. You are not only very knowledgeable and detail oriented, but you truly look after the interest of your client (even performing management activities not required) and work very hard to do your job. Your investigation of all aspects of the property enabled you to prepare an excellent brochure and deal with prospective purchasers or lessees. You do not just list the property on the internet and do a mass mailing of brochures, but you identify and seek out buyers. Although I had my property listed for more than six months with another firm, it was you who found and represented the ultimate buyer and helped to make the sale close. I was duly impressed by how well you represented the interest of your clients who purchased the property.”

“This letter is to introduce you to a very fine property manager that we have had the honor of working with, Mr. Hal Hanstein….To whom ever Mr. Hanstein shows this letter of recommendation to, please feel to contact me. I would highly recommend Mr. Hanstein for any business opportunity he is willing to take on. You will not find anyone more well suited for managing a shopping center. I am a witness to what he has done to the center (Yorkshire Shopping Center, Webster Groves) and you or anyone else would not be disappointed.”

“Hal and Lina of Cardinal Realty Group were an invaluable part of our team that helped us acquire our multi-story commercial property.  We could not have done it without them!  They also helped us with our initial lease up, and thanks in part to their efforts we hit our three year pro forma goal a year early.  We recommend them highly for your your commercial brokerage needs whether you are looking to buy or property or need help leasing up your place.  Thanks a bunch Hall and Lina!”
