Our Services

I had the opportunity of being introduced to Mr. Sisson by a long-time professional within our industry, who suggested I give him a call, as I had a personal referral requiring commercial representation. He and his team exceeded my expectations by a long shot!! As the client already knew the property they wanted to purchase, they jumped in and immediately negotiated an acceptable contract. Between working with the building inspector and the mortgage lender, they maintained total control of the process and closed the deal, seamlessly. Rest assured, they will be receiving all my commercial real estate referrals, going forward.

Lew Brooks, Owner/Realtor, Orlando Luxury Homes

I was referred to Evan James & Associates by my friend and long-time residential real estate agent. Due to our companies' success, I needed to expand my small business into a larger commercial real estate location. Not only did EJA handle all the negotiations for me with top professionalism and provide sound advice on my SBA loan, but when there was an issue with a third-party report, they resolved it very quickly and got my deal closed. If you want great representation on expanding your franchise or business, give them a call.

Susan Bourgoin, Owner/President, Visual Cuisine

They repped us on our move to the US, sourced a location for us to lease for our business.
They found several good options and I felt that our interest was represented during the lease negotiations. After our first several options didn’t work out, they quickly found backups. They kept us informed throughout every step of the process. Their communication level with us was superb and all of our questions were answered very quickly. We highly recommend them.

Karel Hartinger Pena, President, Eco Cups International

Evan James & Associates sold my commercial office condo, lightning fast!! They located a cash buyer for my property to close within ten days. Then, they helped me secure a new office space that was perfectly suited for my business needs. From the beginning to the end, it was a pleasure working with them! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent commercial real estate property in Central Florida.

G. Cryer, P.A., Attorney at Law

My first three deals I worked with Mr. Abrahim went very smooth. However, it was on the fourth deal we did together where he showed his true greatness. He found the best investment property for me to purchase and despite an uncooperative seller and a last minute change of the escrow and title company, he was able to get the deal closed against seemingly impossible odds. Separately, he also went above and beyond his duty by sourcing the best lender for a property I needed to refinance. I strongly recommend working with Alim and Evan James & Associates.

Fred M, Investment Property Owner, Client

It was such a pleasure working with Mr. Maynard and Evan James & Associates. I have worked with many real estate professionals over the years and I can confidently say that he is certainly one of the best that I have ever worked with. He was there every step of the way. He listened to my complicated office functionality needs and was able to find several options that were suitable for me. He took the time to help me visualize how my company could thrive in each of those spaces and was very patient. I am truly thankful for his support and expertise throughout the entire process.

Monica Clayton, MA, LMFT, Owner/Clinical Director, Covenant Counseling Center

Everyone was first rate, kind, courteous, helpful and just great to work with. We can’t emphasize that enough. They were in constant contact with us during the whole transaction process and we had no issues with them. If any issues did arise, they were cared for it in a timely manner. That in itself was huge, considering we live 1,400 miles away. We fared better with them representing us to sell my commercial real estate property and it was one less thing we had to worry about in my mother's estate sale.

Timothy S, Out-of-State Investment Property Owner, Client

I wanted to thank Evan James & Associates for all their hard work in bringing many qualified buyers to my 100-unit apartment complex near downtown Jacksonville. I highly recommend using them to represent you on your next multifamily listing.

Arvin S., Multifamily Owner in the Jacksonville market

Evan James and Associates was able to take on my 24-unit motel as an exclusive listing, work through all the buyer's, coordinate all the property tours and get me a great price per door. Thank you guys!!

Michael A, Small Motel Owner, Client

We've been working with Evan James & Associates for several years now. They handled one of our commercial real estate transactions years ago and they did such a great job, we hired them to manage another one of our properties. Our tenants love working with them and I highly recommend them for any of your commercial real estate needs.

C. Stoltz, Local Investment Property Owner, Client

I truly appreciate working with Evan James & Associates on their commercial transactions. Their team of professionals kept us updated every step of the way while the file was in process; and they were very quick to respond to our request for documents and information as well. I highly recommend Evan James & Associates for your next commercial real estate transaction.

We were referred to Mr. Sisson and Evan James & Associates by a close friend in our church. They represented us on our offer for a new church building, here in Central Florida. We highly recommend working with them and their team of professionals.

Tye & Shante Tribbett Ministries, Two-Time Grammy Award-Winner

I approached Mr. Abrahim after being referred to him by a colleague. He helped me understand the local real estate markets through his knowledge and expertise of key macro & micro environments, which ultimately led me to successfully purchasing an apartment building that suited my needs. One thing I really liked about him was his persistence and professionalism throughout the entire process. His attention to detail saved me from making any mistakes throughout the negotiation and due diligence process. I found the experience to be extremely positive and I'd recommend Alim to anyone wanting a knowledgeable and very well connected commercial real estate professional.

Mark Robinson, Founder, Mark Andrew Diversified Holding Group

Evan James and Associates acted in a very professional and timely manner. They stayed on top of the file from the very beginning. Mr. Sisson took it upon himself to visit the site in order to obtain the necessary estoppel certificates from each of the twenty tenants in the self-storage facility, so we could close on time. Their transaction coordinator was extremely efficient and always handled the information in an accurate and expedited way. They were accurate, expedient, courteous and a pleasure to work with such a pro team.

Ivette Fernandez, Commercial Real Estate Compliance Analyst

Evan James & Associates, we appreciate your buyer representation for our office building sale listing in Seminole County. As you know, a buyer with an SBA loan requires a great deal of attention and follow up. Your staff did well in accommodating all aspects for your client. Thank you for getting this to a successful closing and communicating throughout.
We look forward to working with you again.

Lee Zerivitz, CCIM, Managing Partner, City Commercial

We recently had the opportunity to provide the financing on one of Evan James & Associates' listings. Mr. Sisson and his team were very professional throughout the process and maintained an open line of communication. We would definitely recommend using them to list your properties and look forward to working with them again.

Tim Whitefield, VP, Citizens Bank of Florida

We were referred to Evan James & Associates to help sell our business location by our trusted, long-time residential real estate agent. They were very professional in their presentation to us, as well as, while they were showing our property to potential buyers. They were also very knowledgeable about the local market and pricing valuations. We highly recommend them and should give them a call to represent you.

High-Profile Surgeon, Property Owner/User, Client

We've been working with Mr. Sisson and Evan James & Associates for a couple years now. They have two of our land listings and have done a great job representing us. We have had a lot of agents and potential land buyers contact us directly and each time I've told them to call Mr. Sisson, who is our representation. We won't do a deal without him.

Decker Family Trust, Land Seller, Client

We were referred to Evan James & Associates as the brokerage of choice, as we were moving a contingent of individuals from our megachurch in North Carolina for a new church plant in Florida. Mr. Sisson and his team did a tremendous job representing our needs. Thank you!
