Recent Press:


“In the summer of 2010, we leased from Arista a free-standing 3,000 SF building in Tonawanda, which had been gutted inside and formerly used for retail purposes.  Robert arranged for the complete interior remodel to suit our office layout requirements, and delivered a beautiful finished product on time at his sole expense, and with minimal frustration to us as tenant.   The entire negotiation with Robert, from the exchange of lease proposals, through drafting and negotiating the lease, through the upfit and move-in, was relatively effortless and equitable.   Robert has proven himself to be the kind of real estate investor who not merely makes promises, but delivers on them and cares about the satisfaction of his tenants.   Diane Florey, Director-Real Estate, Securitas Security Services USA, Inc.”

1. The Bottom Line… You Will Save Money.

Countless times we hear of sellers taking a poor or unfair deal, or using brokers who do not truly know the market that sell properties for under market value to simply make a deal. Commercial property is too valuable of an asset to not leave in the hands of a reputable professional that can offer invaluable advisory with an extensive network with real buyers, active in WNY. Additionally, users of commercial property run similar risk not choosing an educated, knowledgable broker to negotiate on their behalf for the best deals. Choosing Arista is smart business.

2. Experience… Proven Negotiators Working For You.

Real Estate negotiation is an art that requires a proven mastery of various sales techniques and a comprehensive understanding of the commercial markets, deal making, personality types, timing, and balance of passiveness and aggression.
