"Highland Solutions couldn't have renegotiated the terms of our lease and extended the lease term without the incredible creativity, financial modeling, negotiating skills and patience of Jason Schulz. As we continue to grow and expand, we know that the level of trust will carry this relationship into the next deal. It's certainly a competitive landscape for tenant reps - but you won't need to talk to anyone else but JRICH."
Brian Sutherland, President & Founder
“We came to Jason and Rich after spinning our wheels for months with another major broker. From day one, JRich took the time to understand what we were after and worked hard to find interesting options that met our needs, including needs we didn’t even realize we had. It was a refreshing change because they actually listened and were truly invested in finding the right fit. The process of finding new space can be daunting and JRich had our backs throughout the entire process. They gave us a balanced perspective on every property we toured, offered creative ideas every step of the way and served as our staunch advocate throughout the entire process. We couldn’t be happier with the space we have today and the cultural impact it’s had on my team has been immeasurable. I recommend Jason and Rich every chance I get because they truly deserve it.”

“When were faced with moving from the space that we comfortably occupied for 6 years and it was a daunting task to say the least. Rich proved to be the right partner as he found us a space that was great but more importantly in a neighborhood that fit our business. On top of that I could think of no better ally to have when it comes to the tough task of lease negotiation. If you are a small business owner and you want someone that takes the time to learn about your business and advocates for you throughout the process then Rich is your guy.”
Michael Melendrez, Founding Partner
"At first I was skeptical about how much a commercial real estate broker could benefit us. However, Rich had access to properties I could never have found myself, took us to all levels of properties, and demonstrated, most of all, that he knew the market well. He was also an excellent negotiator since he knows where to compromise and where not to. He showed me that he is worth his weight in gold -- we couldn't have accomplished our move without him!"
