Testimonials:

“We had planned on expansion of our business and we needed cash to do it. We decided to put our commercial building up for sale and contacted a friend, who was also a customer, to get the job done. After two and half years with no results we decided to go a different direction. Another friend suggested Colliers and I placed the call. Steve gave me a call and we set up a time to meet at a local restaurant. Steve laid out some interesting ideas and we agreed to get to work. Steve's strategy worked as we received two credible offers with the first few months the property was listed and we closed within nine months. I cannot be happier. Thank you “  
Wayne Johnson, Owner Angler’s Habitat 

"I must say, I have been dealing with a commercial Rep named Steve Winger on a possible build to suit deal. Steve has been very easy to work with, and extremely friendly. He has done a bunch of leg work for me and my company over the last couple months. He has been very customer service oriented and he genuinely cares about what we are trying to do. My experience has been top notch, and I look forward to the many deals that I will bring to Colliers in the future, and friends and family that I will send their way. I recommend them all day long."
- Treasure Valley Business Owner 

“I would like to take a minute and properly thank you for the great work you did in representing us in our last transaction.  I always felt like you were working with our best interest foremost.  This investment will be a project that will fill a void in my retirement planning.  We have a lot of puzzle pieces to move around and fit together and I expect you and Mallisa to be integral to that. I’m looking forward to our continued relationship.  Talk soon.”

“Our experience with Commercial Real Estate Agents in the past has been poor at best. After working with Steve Winger at Colliers we know there actually are good to great Commercial Real Estate Agents. Steve was excellent at communicating, calling back and most important taking the time to find what would work best for our office needs. The transaction was incredibly smooth and seamless. I’ve recommended Steve Winger since on numerous occasions and get nothing but glowing reports back. Thank you Steve for giving us our faith back in the Commercial Real Estate world. We wish more worked as hard and as efficiently as you do.”
- Beck Zimmer, Owner Net Key Consulting

“I had the opportunity to work with Steve on a multitude of levels.  Initially the idea was to purchase a building. Steve was very patient, kind and educational throughout the process. He honed in on what I was looking for and took me to places meeting my specifications.  He had invaluable insight while we were looking through buildings. He put a proposal together and walked me through the process of putting an offer in.  Ultimately the deal did not work out so it was time to renegotiate my lease.  Steve was AWESOME! He worked directly with my landlords to get me a great deal.  It was obvious through the process he has the knowledge, experience and determination to get a good deal made with his customers best interest in mind.  I would absolutely work with Steve again!”
- Sandy Poe, Agent American Family Insurance 

"We are all settled in to our new office Steve found for us.  I really appreciate all Steve  did to help us find just the right space that fit our needs and our budget.  I believe we will be happy here for many years to come."

"My experience with Steve was great.  I got a very good price for my property and a buyer in record time.  Very happy with Steve's work. That said, I'd be happy to refer clients to Steve."
- Dennis Charney, Attorney at Law

"I have worked with Steve Winger on many occasions and he is always helpful, knowledgeable and most important to me, honest. He will go above and beyond for his clients, even when it’s not to his advantage. I recommend Steve to all my friends, family and clients because I know they will be well taken care of and treated with the utmost respect and professionalism."
- Darla Butz,  Owner Enviro Kleen

"Steve Winger is an absolute first rate commercial realtor.  I have referred him to friends and acquaintances looking for commercial real estate not because Steve has so many years of diversified real estate experience.  Experience is truly important, but knowing that my referral is going to get the solid attention to detail that they need and deserve is of the utmost importance.  I am always confident that my referrals will be happy that I sent them to Steve.  On top of everything else, he has one of the best personalities and senses of humor I have ever met!  What else could you ask for when going through a complicated transaction?!"
- Linda Nixon, Retain Your Youth
