I have known John for close to 15 years and can safely say his professionalism, integrity, honesty and forthrightness have never been in question. His real estate knowledge and negotiation skills are exceptional–in short, I prefer to do business with John wherever and whenever possible.

In May of 2002, we contacted John Trost regarding a commercial property we were interested in for use as my business office. John was so incredibly helpful in so many aspects of the sale, we really felt like we had an advocate and advisor. Our transaction hit a couple of snags along the way and John handled it with so much ease and professionalism.

In our initial meeting, John astonished me by not only describing the perfect building for my studio but also exactly where to find it (amazingly enough, in the area I requested.) He then simplified what could have been an overwhelming process by keeping me informed of all details and ensuring fairness for both parties. His efforts reflected that my business goals were priority over another “sale” and John impressed me by exceeding all expectations to make it happen. I’m a Fan for Life!

I have had the good fortune to have worked with Mr. Trost on several commercial real estate ventures over the past few years. Not only did he demonstrate the highest quality of professionalism in his representation of my properties, he researched the local data, organized a first rate plan and accomplished the sales for me in a swift and efficient manner. He was able to meet these goals and at the same time provide both the buyer and seller a win-win euphoria.

John worked diligently in a tight market to provide me with the best alternatives possible. I was very pleased with the attention given to my situation and the promptness with which my questions, requests and directives were handled.

John Trost has proven himself to be a valuable asset in our commercial real estate investing. He brings a level head and a wealth of experience to every decision and discussion we have. He seems to be equally skilled in selling, purchasing and leasing property. I plan on having John involved in any future commercial real estate ventures that we explore.

My husband and I recently closed on the purchase of commercial office space in the Arman Medical Center in Port Orange. John Trost had assisted us in the past with a previous commercial transaction so we called on him in again when we began looking at a unit. John is very well connected in this area and those connections really pay off in terms of his knowledge of our commercial market. We would not hesitate to call on John again if we are ever in the market to buy or sell commercial property.

I have worked with John Trost over the past two years in the lease, and eventual sale of a medical office condominium. John was very effective intermediary in negotiations between my partnership and the lessee/buyer. The negotiations were complicated and involved divergent personalities in a sluggish market for the rental/sale of a medical building. John was tactful, persistent, and very effective in bringing favorable terms to the table for us. I would use him again without any hesitation.

John Trost was highly recommended to me by a friend who had worked with him in the past. At our initial meeting I was impressed at John’s knowledge and connections. I knew I was in experienced hands. He worked diligently with everybody involved making it easy for me, as I was out of state for long periods. We finished on time and with great results. It was a real pleasure working with John. If I was ever in the market to buy or sell a commercial property I would only use John.

We recently relocated our practice after 15 years. The move was filled with emotion. John was very knowledgeable regarding properties that may fit our needs and was sensitive to the fact we were leaving our first practice location and venturing out several miles. He took the time to show us several different places, offering the pros and cons of each. He listened to our needs and helped us to decide which location would work best for us. We will definitely call John for future expansion needs.

In the summer of 2008, John helped us with the purchase of the Lone Star Steakhouse on Dunlawton Ave, which we hope to be open in first quarter of 2010. John Trost has the upmost market knowledge in the commercial real estate field, and his expertise and attention to detail is unmatchable. Thank you John for all your help and we at ABC look forward to working with you again in the future.

I was a novice at finding business property. John educated me through my questions and concerns. His knowledge and professionalism shined. My biggest problem was not listening to his advice sooner! His assistant Stephanie is also top notch and a great asset.

My husband and I became acquainted with John Trost in 2007. His direction and advice was educational as first time buyers. In 2010 his services were needed even more and we felt confident in John to help us once again. John Trost is a man of character, integrity and trust. He has become a friend that we can call on time and time again.

I would like to thank John Trost for the professionalism and knowledge he shared with us in finding the perfect location to move our retail floor covering store to. He was very quick in finding us our new location and made everything very fast and painless. He asked our specific needs and within 24 hours we had several locations to look into. John was a gift from God to us. We will be forever his client.

We recently sold our property thanks to John’s extra effort. Our property had some unique problems not normally encountered. Because John did not back down from the challenge, it is now being used again for another retail business. He went the extra mile and it was extremely appreciated.

I wanted to take a moment and say thank you for doing such a great job with our property in Daytona. As you know, we have 24 properties and employ realtors all over the state of FL. The very best realtor of them all is John Trost! In a tough real estate market John got the job done quickly by working hard and smart. John’s knowledge of the local real estate market is surpassed by none. No detail was too small for John, who went out of his way to provide excellent service.

John Trost is a gentleman and true to his word. He facilitated a sale for us that went quickly even though both parties were out of the country for much of the time. He is always available…always responsive and knows how to help even when there are bumps along the way. I would call John again right now if I had another need for commercial property. Thanks John for who you are and what you do!

John was extremely helpful with the purchase of my agency office. He was very responsive and informative throughout the entire process. He is absolutely a pleasure to work with. The best part is that he took a genuine interest in the success of my business and  locating the right location to help make that happen. I highly recommend John and will call upon him for my commercial real estate needs in the future.

We have been working with John Trost since 2005. Living in S. Florida and being nearly three hours away from the property, John has been a tremendous asset to us, handling “above and beyond” all that is involved in renting our properties. In one situation, he even coordinated and managed having the unit painted, re-carpeted, etc., from identifying the contractor to seeing the work completed. His follow up is impeccable and we proudly recommend John for any real estate selling or rental needs.

I recently has the pleasure of working with John to lease two professional spaces in Ormond Beach and Port Orange which I own.

John is an extremely professional realtor who was prepared to answer all of my questions regarding the office rental; he made the process smooth and effortless, addressing each issue in a timely manner. All lease questions, additions and deletions were addressed immediately and met or exceeded my expectations. It was truly a pleasure to work with John and I highly recommend him to perspective tenants as well as commercial building owners looking for excellent professional management.

In August, I did a lot of research on properties in the area and decided to contact John Trost regarding a commercial property we were interested in for our Business Needs. I was extremely picky and probably hard to deal with because of my insistent needs I wanted fulfilled. John was so incredibly helpful and resourceful in all aspects of the process! He went beyond that of a typical real estate professional! Our transaction hit a couple of issues with the property along the way and John dealt with it like a pro! I utilized his suggestions for different providers in several different areas of the sale/move in process, all with great success. Thanks Again For Everything John! We will Do Business Again!

He was very patient and responsive to our needs. Though our project was modest by most accounts, he treated us as if we were purchasing a multi-million dollar listing. I was most impressed that he showed up to our closing just to congratulate us. I would recommend John Trost to anyone in the market for a commercial property in the Ormond Beach area.

We started to work with John in 2010. He helped us with a purchase of a distressed property in Port Orange. This is our first commercial property and we have learned a lot from John. He gave us great advice without being “too pushy”. We are deeply impressed by his professional knowledge and close tie to the local community which is a huge plus in the real estate market. Subsequently he advise us with the lease strategy and then assisted us to lease the property out with very reasonable terms. He followed up each case closely and showed strong integrity and professionalism during the course. We deeply appreciate the help from John and his associate.

John is well known in the Port Orange, Florida and Volusia County area as a Florida Commercial Realtor. Recently he worked very diligently to assist me in leasing a professional office building in Port Orange, Florida.
He responded to my phone calls and e-mails promptly and courteously and had many helpful suggestions during the recently completed negotiation process. He often would correspond with me after normal business hours and on weekends which I greatly appreciated. He always acted in a professional manner.
In summary, I would highly recommend John Trost for assistance with any Commercial Real Estate transaction.

We recently had the pleasure of working with John Trost. We had a commercial building listed for sale for almost two years with no results. After seeing John’s sign around town, we decided to give him a call. He promptly got back to us, and we decided to list the property with him. Within a few weeks we had multiple offers on the property and subsequently the property sold. If you’re interested in buying or selling commercial real estate in the greater Daytona Beach area, you owe it to yourself to call John Trost.
