  • As the Director of Real Estate responsible for American Builders and Contractors Supply Co. Inc.'s portfolio of 750 distribution centers located in 49 states, we deal with Industrial Brokers throughout the Country. We have completed 11 transactions with Schacker Realty in 4 states totaling over 400,000 sq. ft. and there are very few firms that have represented ABC Supply as capably, loyally, and provided a level of service comparable to Schacker. Phil Shwom is on a very short list of the best industrial brokers in the country. His knowledge, responsiveness, integrity, and overall skills are superior.

  • Phil Shwom has been instrumental in facilitating the acquisition of an ideal 150,000 square foot corporate headquarters for our organization. We have grown steadily over the past 20 years from a garage start-up operation to a 150 person organization. We have expanded and relocated several times and, in the process, dealt with many of the major LI commercial realtors. We have found no realtor that looks out for our interests as if they were his own like Phil does, and as a result, we now work exclusively with Phil. He has built a long-term sustainable business with knowledge, hard work, integrity, and intelligence. I would highly recommend Phil and would welcome your phone call.

  • Phil and Gary-I can't thank you enough for the role you played in bringing the lease to fruition. You acted as if it were your own property, and were hands on through the extremely long and difficult negotiations. You gave meaningful input and advice where it was needed.
    Especially significant is the fact that I am a small landlord (owning only one industrial property) and you treated us as if we were a client with a large portfolio, as we negotiated with one of Long Island's largest companies. A real David and Goliath story--yet you tilted the scale to allow us to complete a lease with the 800 lb. gorilla. Truly a pleasure working with you.

    My thanks,
