Property Management Testimonials

“CBCDR has managed all our Champaign properties for several years. They have done a great job in overseeing maintenance, working with our tenants, and handling the bookkeeping.  Their staff have always been professional, responsive, and great to work with. Look forward to working with all of them for many more years to come.”


“Being an out of area owner I needed a company that I could trust to not only be my eyes and ears on the ground, but also to be an organized and supportive back-office.  CBC Devonshire has been that and more.  Issues are addressed promptly, tenants are happy and the property is performing very well.”

“Cobblefield Point Condominium Association transitioned to Coldwell Banker Commercial Devonshire Realty in May 2014. The Property Management team took a typical 90 day process and successfully squeezed it into 21 days.  We asked CBCDR to move hills, they moved mountains.  They facilitated all of the necessary transitions all while keeping the CPCA Board in lock-step communication.  In addition, their team quickly adopted management of our condominium complex with minimum interruption of day-to-day services. The CBCDR team is always quick to respond to requests and continually see projects to completion and their level of professionalism is undeniable.  The CPCA board is very happy with the services provided by the entire team at CBCDR.”

“Coldwell Banker Commercial manages all of our commercial properties in Champaign, and in 5 other markets.  Having been commercial property owners/managers ourselves since 1966 we understand how important and challenging the property management function is.  Coldwell Banker Commercial has done an outstanding job for us on both the accounting/financial and operations sides of the business.  They’re always professional, accountable, and available, and they take a very personal interest in providing the best managerial services possible.  I would recommend them strongly to anyone looking for a great commercial property manager.”

“I just wanted to say thank you for the super job you have done managing my interest in the Round Barn West Shopping Center. Since I live 2000 miles away in Spokane, Washington, it is very comforting to know I can count on your professional expertise to handle any and all problems that arise. Peace of mind is priceless.”


“I want to let you know how much I appreciate the work you have done for me in managing my interest in the round Barn West Shopping Center. I’m sure you mostly hear from your clients when they have a complaint or question by this is a letter of “thank you”.

Over the last 25 plus years, you have consistently kept me well informed about what is going on with the leasing and maintenance of the property. You have made accurate projections, negotiated good leases and warned of maintenance and leasing issues well in advance. Those projections help me plan my finances for the year. All told, your management gives me confidence that my interests are being well cared for even though I live on the west coast in Seattle.

I look forward to working with you in the years to come.”

“Our association dates back to 1977 following the formation of Seventy Four Centre Associates. We were badly in need of leases for our newly acquired acreage, and you and your associates found them. This was followed by a most satisfactory sale of my Urbana land, Sullivan Chrysler. Most recently you located tenants and buyers for my Champaign property. Thirty years, three land partnerships, and a hundred acres ago, we have enjoyed great success together. We have used you many services, including architectural, engineering and property management. I recommend your firm to anyone.”

“Josh Means, Treasurer of Cobblefield Point, reported being amazed at how Stephanie was able to remain so positive and pleasant despite having four individuals in the lobby as well as a host of other issues around her. Mr. Means stated that it was a madhouse with people walking around, the telephone ringing, a copy machine running, yet Stephanie continued to smile in spite of what seemed like chaos to him. He was impressed that she was diligently working to get everyone taken care of and was not in a panic. Mr. Means stated Stephanie was “very professional, reassuring and on top of things.

The Cobblefield Point HOA Board of Directors has often stated they are very impressed with the way Jerry has handled maintenance at the complex.  They report feeling he genuinely cares about the area and goes the extra mile to provide excellent customer service. The Board asked that Jerry drive through the area a few times a week and wanted him to know that he has their full support in proceeding with any maintenance issue that needs to be addressed; he does not need to first seek their approval. The Board states they know that he is working in the best interest of the community. In closing, the Board stated Jerry is a “huge asset” to Cobblefield.”
