“We needed to navigate a market that was quite testing. However, insert Sentry Commercial’s B&A. Their open communication and deep knowledge of the Southern New England community gave us an advantage over the market. Their team understood what we were looking for and what clientele best suited our space. Their expertise and support resulted in great success and we could not be more thankful!”

“When searching around West Hartford for a new office space, Larry answered the phone to a number I saw on a ‘for lease’ sign. He was pleasant and friendly from our first conversation. He listened to what I was looking for and really seemed motivated to help me find something in my budget. Larry didn’t forget about my search and ended up arranging a meeting with ACRE Group at The Exchange and that was ultimately where I ended up. Anytime I had a question, he responded immediately, providing me with helpful feedback and advice. I always felt that he had my best interests at heart, as my advocate, rather than the leasing property. Larry did a great job finding me an office space that suited my needs. He was as pleasant in person as he was on the phone. I have only interacted with one other property owner/agent, and he was no Larry Levere!”
– Susan Forrester, MA, IBCLC, RLC

“The Bridge has been fortunate enough to work with Larry Levere and Sentry Commercial’s Brokerage & Advisory Team in acquiring several properties in both purchase and lease ventures. Larry and Team always exceed expectations.
In particular, he pays close attention to our needs both in terms of building design and fiscal limitations. Larry is not your typical ‘wheeler-dealer’ who just wants you to lease or buy something so that he can move on to the next client. He takes his time to understand what you need and is happy with a building when you are and not before.
Once the sale or lease is complete, Larry’s commitment to your business does not end there. He follows up making sure you are pleased with your new space and routinely offers valuable suggestions. The Bridge is blessed to be able to count on Larry every time we seek out a new building. I do not know what we would do without him and the Sentry Commercial Team.”
– Margaret A. Hann, Executive Director – The Bridge Family Center, Inc.

“I’ve now spent 9+ years in the Commercial Real Estate brokerage space, as both a technology start up founder and marketing assistant. Over that time, I’ve interacted with at least 500 separate brokerages and had the privilege of providing software to thousands of CRE brokers and agents. In all of that time, Mark Duclos and Sentry Commercial have established the gold standard for how to build a business with technology and efficient systems. Sentry Commercial is way out ahead of the curve in this area, and I would highly recommend anyone considering updating their technology stack to have a quick chat with Mark.”

Through these technologies, Sentry Commercial provides their clients best-in-class service in leasing, selling and managing their properties. I would highly recommend Sentry Commercial to anyone considering selling, leasing or outsourcing their property management.”

“Once a match was identified, all parties worked together quickly and efficiently to get NQ Industries into their new space so they could get back to focusing on their business operations. During these extremely challenging times, we found this to be just short of miraculous. We were able to finalize the lease agreement just days before the stay at home order went into effect.
Key to the success of this new partnership was constant and open communication lines facilitated by Sentry Commercial. Sentry Commercial provided weekly email updates and were always available to answer questions.”
– Dave Landino, Owner, Automated Concepts, LLC
“Sentry Commercial provides property management services and represents us, on the property, for customer relations, renewal of existing leases and the overall marketing of the property.

Overall, the level of communication and attention to detail across all aspects of the operation of the property has far exceeded our expectations and stands apart.”

I would not hesitate to use their services again and highly recommend them for your project.”

“United Bank Commercial Properties, Inc. foreclosed on 135 Cross St, Bristol, CT and needed an agent to list the property for sale for us. I am extremely satisfied with my decision to go with Nick Pinto as the listing agent. Nick was very aggressive in marketing the property and followed up after each showing to get feedback (good and bad) from the potential buyers. He started marketing the property before the ink was even dry on the contract. Nick kept in constant contact with me regarding showings and provided feedback. His excellent negotiating skills helped close the deal while not alienating any of the parties. I would use Nick Pinto again as a listing agent, and highly recommend him to others.”
