"My dad, Otto Schatz, bought a property in 1990 with ICO Commercial as the representative. My dad had the property for many years. Upon my dad's death in 2013, I retained ICO Commercial to help sell this tract. The property sold in December of 2014. We had no previous real estate experience but ICO Commercial made sure we understood the procedure for selling this property and also kept us up to date. What really impressed me about ICO was that they sent flowers to parents funeral, which showed me how sincere and respectful they were of their clients. I would like to personally thank ICO Commercial and the rest of the staff for being informative, professional, courteous, and caring in regards to selling this piece of property. I think ICO could be used as an example to show how a client should be treated."
