I have been dealing with Anish Shah for the past 3 months. He is the best in the business.  I have other brokers that I dealt with but he is by far the best and professional individual that I have done business with.  Without a doubt I will do business with him again. 
Hotel Investor

I have legally represented Anish Shah for over 20 years regarding his involvement as a Seller and Buyer in commercial transactions. Anish was very knowledgeable about negotiations and was always extremely prepared for every step of the closing process for each transaction.  He was always ahead of the curve regarding the technology regarding his commercial property.   Most important, I could always trust Anish--his word is his bond.  A true gentleman in the commercial world.
