I contacted Neil with the need to help us prepare for succession in our family held company. Neil was recommended to me due to his extensive experience and skills in evaluating commercial real estate assets and recognizing new ways of structuring company administrative and upper management roles to improve operations and company efficiencies.
He has far exceeded my expectations with great results in the future management of our assets. In the extremely difficult times of the Covid 19 pandemic, he has worked with our future leaders in critical thinking and out of the box ideas to promote our assets, relationships and community outreach.
I feel that with the years of experience our future leaders have had, and the guidance that Neil is instilling in them as “owners” rather than “employees”, I feel confident that our company will thrive, when it is time to turn over the “reins”.

We hired Neil Soskin as a consultant to advise our family real estate business and guide us through a difficult time. Our year working with Neil was transformative with the tangible results we were hoping for. Not only is Neil very enjoyable to work with, but he can also handle even the most difficult personalities and conflicts within a group. He is a great listener and has a very intuitive and well-rounded approach to complex situations. I grew immensely as a leader under his guidance, and our corporate culture improved as well. On a strictly transactional business level, Neil delivered and then some, handling complex lease negotiations with positive outcomes. Neil thinks strategically and is forward focused, always asking the tough questions. Our year ended with the outcome our business and family were looking for, and we would not have arrived there without his help.

illi Commercial Real Estate is one of the largest regional companies serving the needs of Southern California real estate investors. In 2017 our firm had the fortunate problem of robust growth. Our staff and team of more than 30 Real Estate Agents we’re running at full pace and I realized that our company needed to build a sturdy business platform.
I had contacted Neil for his help. Neil was able to assist us in recognizing new ways to structure company administrative help and upper management roles to improve operations and company efficiency. Our broker team was taught time management skills that improved broker confidence, productivity and income. Neil continues to provide leadership coaching to me and my leadership team.
With years of vast experience, Neil Soskin has helped our company continue to our growth and give me peace of mind. Neil has been a valuable contributor in far more areas of our company than what he was originally contracted for and his assistance is much appreciated.

It was my first experience as shopping mall owner and I have to be honest it is a bit disarming as there is so much to know and many terms to learn. I asked my lawyer for help who without hesitation recommended Neil to me and I hired him as Asset Manager. Neil broke it down for me in pieces and helped me understand every single aspect of the business. It is very interesting what the decision-making process is based on, and there so many variables. At the end of the day it is impossible to make the best decision every time but through the right process and the right counseling you can get very close. That is what Neil masters the best. But this is just one of the many skills that Neil has. I am looking forward to many years to come of collaboration with him. I recommend Neil, not only for his professionalism, but what I value the most is his unconditional friendship.

I knew it to be true at the time and throughout our direct working tenure together, however it wasn't until the years that followed that I was able to more fully comprehend (and appreciate) the depth of impact that Neil's mentoring had on my professional development. Through energetic leadership, Neil's unique management style created an environment that fostered creative problem-solving, encouraged independent thinking, and promoted focus on maximizing value while building and maintaining customer loyalty.
