The Dikman Company, a commercial/industrial real estate services firm, announced Erika Zipfel Thompson represented Advanced Roofing in the purchase of a 30,000-plus square-foot industrial building. The property is located on 7.14 acres at 4909 West Knollwood Street, Tampa, Fla. and sold for $2.4M.

“Advanced Roofing wanted to expand their Tampa location and find a property within their budget,” said Erika. “Many of our clients come to us with a plan in mind and we work with them to provide as many viable options as possible. The Tampa market is tight right now, and we wanted to find just the right building for Advanced Roofing.”

Over the course of several months, The Dikman Company worked with Advanced Roofing to show them several properties in east Tampa. Keeping an open mind throughout the search, the company surveyed its employees to gain insight into how many would drive out to east Tampa every day for work. The overwhelming response was to stay centrally located, close to the Tampa airport. To secure a building more in alignment with their geographical preference and type of product they desired, Advanced Roofing increased their original budget and purchased the property at 4909 West Knollwood Street.

“Erika and her firm were great to work with,” said Michael Kornahrens, executive vice president of Advanced Roofing, Inc. “Advanced Roofing had specific needs, and Erika got the deal done!”

The Dikman Company prides itself on going the extra mile with its clients. Erika added, “We wanted to make sure that Advanced Roofing had every option available in front of them so they could make a sound business decision when purchasing their new space. We were more than happy to go the extra mile and to take as much time as necessary to find Advanced Roofing just the right property while securing a very competitive purchase price.”
