Deep Experience

The founding partners at Park Commercial have over 100 years of commercial real estate brokerage experience concentrated in Industrial, Office, Medical, Land and Investment Properties. As native Charlotteans, our team of principal brokers has in-depth and up-to-date knowledge of the local market critical to providing clients fast, accurate and reliable real estate solutions. Our approach is simple: we focus on high quality, rather than high volume real estate transactions tailored to the unique needs of our clients. All of our team members have extensive knowledge of the Charlotte region and are licensed as brokers in North and South Carolina.

“We had a warehouse fire that destroyed our office infrastructure and inventory. We called Park Commercial that same day and by 2pm we were touring space that could accommodate our needs. The next day we had a lease on temporary space, and we begin restoring our inventory. Park Commercial’s knowledge of the market and relationships were instrumental in helping us get back on our feet in short order….critical in a service intense industry”.

“If you need help finding a commercial space in the Charlotte area, possibly beyond, I strongly recommend Kelvin Day at Park CRE. We needed a new office space, which we dubbed “the unicorn” and Kelvin came through. Even after we moved into our new space Kelvin stayed involved to be sure we were taken care of. Great customer service, incredible patience, straight shooter, and great negotiating skills. We found our unicorn and a trustworthy partner when it comes to our real estate needs.  Thank you Kelvin Day.”

Jack Kalinski | Vice President | BluSky Restoration Contractors

“We were lucky enough to find Chandler as we were looking for a location for our small business.  He diligently showed us dozens of properties and helped steer us clear of some bad deals.  He then found us a gem of a deal and helped us move quickly.  In the 4 years since we bought our building, he’s been invaluable in keeping us up to date on current conditions and providing “off-market” intel that has helped us properly manage our investment.”
