Similar to an attorney when faced with legal matters, we represent our clients’ non-legal business interests when leasing or purchasing office space. The value we bring is the experience from hundreds of transactions and our relationships in the market.
We represent parties in leasing or selling commercial office buildings. We are not just space finders. A brief overview of the leasing process includes initial renewal/relocation evaluation, a thorough market analysis and tour, access to proprietary market data, financial analysis and comparison, and expert negotiation. We are happy to explain our process in detail and how it benefits our clients.
Tenants are not billed for our services. Customarily local real estate fees are paid by the Landlord upon lease execution. The fees are budgeted in the transaction.
Leases are simply operating agreements and when our job is done right both parties have the peace of mind that they made a market deal. There is no reason to over pay because the parties have a good relationship. We make a strong effort to preserve good tenant/landlord relations.
Absolutely not. One of our key value offerings is our relationships with landlords. Some “Tenant Representative Only” agents seem more interested in their fees and making a point of creating conflict in order to justify their position.
The representation agreement requires us to show our clients everything available in the market and provide the services outlined in the agreement. A letter of appointment is all the commitment we need to work exclusively as an advisor. In our experience tenants who do not retain representation or who engage multiple agents as “space finders” end up paying too much, receive poor attention, and do not get the terms they want.
The similarities stop with the minimum State license to practice real estate in California. We provide attention to detail and good will in every relationship. Our team is active in professional organizations such as The Society of Industrial and Office Realtors, or SIOR, and Certified Commercial Investment Members, or CCIM. We are always training to add new skills to improve our services.
