Van Gandhi

Commercial Broker VG Realty
As a proven commercial real estate executive my focus is assisting clients in meeting and exceeding their strategic commercial real estate goals. Over fifteen years of retail experience helps me create “out of the box” solutions to solve problems and overcome obstacles. Utilizing this owner-operator point of view, I develop and execute strategies that enhance long term stability and profitability of retail properties. My passion for income producing properties fuels my success and motivates me to help clients achieve or maintain financial independence. Managing risk through principled due diligence rather than gimmicky sales programs provide sound investments strategies for our clients to consider.

As an exceptional relationship builder who understands networking is more than an introduction and the exchange of business cards, I easily establish and maintain effective dialogues with C level executives and other professionals including attorneys, architects, brokers, interior designers, contractors, property managers, bankers, and asset managers. As a real estate professional, my job is to keep the transaction moving forward to closing, while perfectly aligning with the client’s goals. My commercial real estate experience covers acquisitions, dispositions, retail leasing and investment sales. I look forward to working with you on your specific commercial real estate portfolio.

We reached out to several brokers in the Durham area for a listing that we had and after speaking with several, decided on Van to assist us in the leasing process. Van was extremely organized and professional and did an excellent job in helping us find the tenant, vet the tenant and get them signed to a deal at our location. He also went above and beyond assisting us in finding painters and flooring contractors to get the space ready for the tenant. I would recommend Van and certainly use him again for listing we have in that area.

I was in need of an agent and a friend recommended Van to me and I could sense he would be a good fit because he is the realtor that would always keep our best interest in mind. He was patient and explained the documents and answered all of my questions quickly and carefully. He really went above and beyond to help me be sucessful in leasing a space for my restaurant. Van is honest, reliable, and genuine. Working with Van was a positive experience from start to finish. He is the commercial man and also have great contacts in his network.

I completed a 1031 exchange with Van lasts week and it went flawlessly. As my buyer's agent, Van kept the closing on time by communicating with the Attorney, Seller's agent, and my banker. Van is a great negotiator who gets the best deal for his clients. He taught me the tricks of the trade so now I feel ready to sell my property in the future, but of course I will call Van first because his access to buyers, and off-market deals is second to none.

Working with Van was fun and easy. He found multiple properties for us within our budget, was always able to schedule quick viewings and finally found a location that we are getting ready to move into in Wake Forest.

Van handled all the inspections, environmental reviews and other necessary paperwork efficiently and without taking us away from our daily tasks. Working with Van is like working with a friend who happens to know commercial real estate inside out.

Highly recommended.

Van works his tail off! Van makes himself accessible to answer questions, hustle for you, and to be a great resource for other professionals to help you get the deal that you need done. I would highly recommend Van to anyone who needs help with their real estate needs in North Carolina.

It was more than just a pleasure working with Van to sell my business condo. Van’s advice was spot on and he actually worked for my best interest. Because of his efforts, my condo was not on the market long before it sold. I’ve worked with real estate agents before and he’s the best. Thank you Van.

Van helped us find the perfect karate studio! He was very professional and persistent. We had a serious medical delay during the process. Van put zero pressure on us to continue until we were ready. He kept us informed every step of the way. I have already, and would continue to proudly recommend Van for any professional property needs!

Van and I have never met face to face. I was an out of state land owner. I engaged Van to Market and Sell my property in the Durham area. Very professional from the get-go. I felt like I was his only client. He found me a buyer and negotiated a fair price. He was a great partner through the whole process. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone needing a Commercial Real Estate Broker in the Tri-angle area.

Real Estate Sales Associate
Van is an absolutes real estate rock star & my go to source & advisor for anything involving commercial real estate in the Research Triangle of North Carolina! We worked together on several deals in the area(Charlotte, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill, & counting) with my very important & demanding client. He not only provided them the local real market expertise backed by real life deal making and business management experience, but handled my client with the utmost care & attention as if they were his own. His local network is vast and goes beyond the borders of North Carolina. He was able to problem solve complex issues on fly, while looking around the corner for potential obstacles to navigate and avoid all the while communicating with all parties involved. He never ceased to keep me in the loop. I could not have asked for a better commercial broker to partner up with in North Carolina. Work with Van and you will also become a raving fan!

I recommend Van to any person or company if they are selling a property or buying a property. He was very thorough and competent handling my property sale. He got more than I ever expected and did it in a short period of time. I also like him as a person very much. You can't go wrong with Van in charge.

I want to thank Van for his help in finding the perfect location for us to move to. At first we were looking to to lease and that fell through unfortunately because of the landlord. A few months later a reached out to Van to help me in buying a property. There were a lot of ups and downs throughout the process but Van was always extremely professional and always on top of the deal. I would recommend Van as an agent and thank him for getting our deal to the finish line.

Van was extremely patient and helpful in my first commercial purchase. He always made himself available to answer all my questions. Van helped me find a property in automotive use, which is very difficult to find. Van is an extremely hard worker and I will always use him to represent me in all my commercial transactions moving forward. In the commercial world, I found it very difficult to find an agent who did not have an ego the size of Texas and would actually invest a year in you to get you to closing. Van is the man!!!

His analysis and research has helped me in determining if an investment was to be a “Go” or “No Go”. He has been meticulous with his financial analysis and is always going the extra mile to make sure all questions have been uncovered and answered. Van helped me to purchase an investment property recently. As a broker he is thoughtful and considers pros & cons methodically. He prevents the buyer from hasty decisions. As if purchasing the property for himself. Highly recommended. I am very happy with Vandan’s strong work ethic and ability to follow through. When he says he is going to do something he undoubtedly keeps his promises.

Van is an excellent commercial agent to work with. He was prompt, attentive to my requests and questions, and quick to take items off my plate he knew he could handle more effectively. His efforts to understand our business needs now and in the future were critical to our purchase choice. Equally impressive was his knowledge of the local market during negotiation to acquire our property at the right price. We love our new office, feel it was a strategic investment and highly recommend Van and his team.

Before I met with Van I worked with many different agents in our area. After I found him on Social Media, he came by my previous place to meet with me and understand my needs and requirements. The Same day he started providing me with different options, explained the market, and did everything he could to make sure I could get the space I was looking for at a reasonable rate. He was very patient and strongly recommend him.
