“The service and personal attention I received from Tony was second to none. I could not have been more pleased about how Tony navigated me through a very complex escrow to completion. His professionalism and knowledge of the local market, coupled with his attention to detail and his genuine passion for his profession, made me feel that Tony always had my best interest in mind.”

B.S. / Manhattan Beach, CA

“Mr. Cordi has helped me put together multiple deals in the South Bay, big and small. He has a great mind for business, a sharp eye, and is the most knowledgeable guy I’ve met in regards to South Bay businesses and real estate.”

J.M. / Hermosa Beach, CA

“As first time restaurateurs, we saw Tony as a guiding light for us when it came to many parts of the process we were unfamiliar with. His expertise and advice in areas such as the purchasing of our business, transferring of liquor license and even to the lease negotiations came in extremely helpful. The whole process was without a doubt smoother because of Tony’s guidance and advice. Should we be fortunate enough to open a second restaurant, we have Tony on speed-dial.”

B.K. / Hermosa Beach, CA

“I am always impressed with the level of service I receive when I do business with you Tony.
The Los Muchachos location you found is a perfect fit for our concept, and you went above and beyond to make the deal a success. Thank you again for all your hard work and helping us with the transition process.”

F.T. / Redondo Beach, CA

“It’s with immense gratitude that I write you this thank you note. What a great job you did on helping us sell our downtown Hermosa Beach restaurant. I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into this project and what an honor it was working with you, such kind, trustworthy and professional man. If there is ever anything I can do for you, just let me know.”

Chris D. / Manhattan Beach, CA

“Tony’s knowledge in many fields and hard work make him a serious force. He makes difficult and complex issues almost fun because of his teamworking skills and ability to tackle any problems.”

Joe M. / Manhattan Beach, CA

“Tony completely surprised me. When I told him what my goals were he came up with a few ideas and was able to execute on all of them. We were able to sell my dental practice, find a great location for a new practice, and then he helped us get up and running. Our revenues tripled within a couple of months.”

J.C. / Redondo Beach, CA

“I just wanted to let you know that you really did an excellent job at searching for restaurant locations. I’m really grateful for all the time and effort that you put into finding the perfect spot in downtown Manhattan Beach and succeeding at it. My future and my family’s will be brighter thanks to the great spot that you worked so hard to get for me. Thanks for the endless days that you worked around and off the clock to make it happen!”

C.D. / Manhattan Beach, CA

“I am a Realtor that specializes in residential real estate and knew nothing about commercial real estate until Tony was referred to me. I was leery at first but Tony has an ease about him that made me very feel very comfortable. I feel honored to have Tony on my side to help me with this big transition in my life.”

C.P. / Redondo Beach, CA

“I got the keys! Thanks again for all your tremendous help.”

M.M. / Culver City, CA

“Thanks again for all of your help. I can’t believe we were able to pull that deal off.”

A.M. / Redondo Beach, CA

“Tony is of assistance in my restaurant consulting business to secure restaurant locations for a couple of my clients. He is fast at answering calls or finding out requested information. I also benefit from the commercial real estate connections he has around the South Bay, and my clients appreciate his feedback and guidance.”
