60% of our customers are repeat business because we take great care of our clients. We’re a small team looking for resourceful doers with a ‘find a way or make a way’ attitude.

WHAT WE DO

Our culture is laid-back serious. What does that mean? Unless we’re meeting a client we’re in flip flops and shorts, but every day is spent working on multi-million-dollar transactions.

Why Clients Keep Coming Back

“I don’t think I have ever worked with a broker who not only always does what he says he will do but also handles every back and forth between buyer and seller. Most brokers are much less involved once a PSA is signed but your involvement has many advantages to successfully closing a deal. I enjoyed working with you and hope to do more deals in the future.”

“We have completed several real estate acquisitions with PetroCal Associates, and specifically Reuven Birnkrant, over the last several years. Most importantly, Reuven is honest and focuses on serving the best interests of his clients. He is concentrating not only on all of the small, and very important details of a transaction, but also is consistently and proactively thinking two to three steps ahead and preparing solutions for potential twists and turns that seem to come up in most real estate deals. It feels like you are part of the same company when you are involved with Reuven and his team based upon their high level of service.”

“With Reuven's help I was able to acquire an SBA (7a) loan for $2.5M+ to build a $3M+ car wash. As anyone who has acquired an SBA business loan knows, obtaining financing is a process. I have done it before working directly with the bank. But in this case, having Reuven as an advocate made the difference not only in obtaining the terms we needed, but also in making sure the entire loan process, from appraisal to closing, went smoothly. I cannot recommend Reuven highly enough. Without his help, I can't say I would have been able to complete this project.”

“I've secured 5 loans with PetroCal Associates over the past 10 years. Recently they arranged financing for me to acquire and renovate a full-service carwash, on leased land, using 1031 exchange funds, that I was redeveloping into an express carwash immediately after closing. They helped me structure everything in a way that worked for the SBA 504 program and got me a great loan for a very complex deal, all during COVID-19. I would never go anywhere else.”

“Reuven Birnkrant saw our potential and fought for our car wash all the way. He was instrumental in finding the right bank and even convinced the VP to come see our building site when other brokers wouldn’t give us the time of day. Once the bank saw our plans and our location we got two thumbs up! Reality is that Reuven pulled it all off and he was a huge help in getting us to close on time.”

“Reuven was wonderful to work with. He oversaw all the paperwork and helped us produce the needed forms and documents. He never left us in the dark but kept us apprised of all tasks and deadlines. I would never even consider building another car wash without him! He is also very nice to talk to on the phone. I actually looked forward to his calls! (And still do btw)”

“When it was time for me to sell my car wash, I didn’t think about anyone else because they were more authentic than everyone else.”
