Burgess Commercial Testimonials
Customer Case Study
CENTA Corporation was in the midst of a dizzying growth spurt, our sales increasing 300% over the course of 3 years. The small size of our 7,000 sq. ft. facility in Westmont, IL was forcing us to stack product in warehouse aisles and cram desks into spaces not meant for that purpose. We had to find a larger facility, but where?
When we started looking for property it was a daunting task, considering that we also had to run an ever-growing business. With the help of our broker, Nick Eboli, we visited dozens of listings for existing property, new property and even raw land. After much searching, we finally came across the Aurora Corporate Center. Tom Burgess worked closely with us to learn about our needs and to address our concerns. Together, we spliced together (5) condo units to create a 25,000 sq. ft. facility. Within weeks we had a deal. We had found a new home.
At the time of this writing, we have been two years in residence at 2570 Beverly Drive #128. We could not be more pleased with the property. It has allowed us to properly configure our business both in terms of people and product. Eighteen months ago we installed CNC machinery as well, enabling us to become even more self sufficient and customer reactive. All in all, our experience with the Aurora Corporate Center has been exactly what we needed to drive our business to the next level.
“Aurora Corporate Center provided us with enough build out options at affordable prices, that we were able to get the exact building for our company’s needs. The resources they have, and are able to tap into, can really benefit a busy buyer. They also provided enough support through the entire process.”Jeff
“Purchasing my business’s real estate allowed me to sell my business, lease the space back to the purchaser, and establish an annuity income for my future. That was an exit strategy that really worked for me, and definitely would not have been possible without being an owner.”Jeanine Lundstrom
“Without the help and guidance of Aurora Corporate Center and Prairie Point Corporate Center (Burgess Commercial Real Estate), I would still be renting. They answered all my questions and put me on the right path to ownership. I have found huge benefits to owning commercial real estate. They delivered as promised and have helped me find that owning vs. renting can really pay off in the long run.”Mike Pavetto

“In 2008, Tom Burgess built Nicor Gas a new facility at the Aurora Corporate Center. Tom’s vast experience in design and construction combined with his ability to understand the owner’s required functionality made him an integral part of the entire project. Our expedited delivery schedule and defined budget were met by the outstanding team Tom assembled for this project. The results were a building that was delivered on time, on budget, and one that Nicor Gas is completely satisfied with.”Ronald Katt
“I was able to double our square footage for the same cost as our previous lease. Plus I now have the benefit of ownership!”Larry Byers
