Landlord Representation

Our Landlord Representation Services can help you unlock your property’s potential by developing a deep understanding of your unique space and delivering expertise on the market and the marketing techniques that will showcase your property’s best qualities.

We work to understand your short and long-term objectives for ownership and develop a leasing strategy to achieve the maximum return on investment bringing together the right tenant mix with the right deal structure, while minimizing exposure and vacancies.

That requires more than searching for and signing tenants. We provide a clear overview of competing properties and market trends to develop a strategic property marketing plan. Our systematized approach to competitive analysis, marketing and communication ensures you’ll never miss a prospect.

Tenant Representation

A lease is often the second largest expenditure for a business after payroll, so it must be more than a cost center. We strive to make your real estate a competitive advantage and a tool to be used to recruit and retain talent. Working on your behalf, we will form strategies to meet your current and future needs, provide market conditions, trends analysis and identify potential hurdles to ensure minimal disruptions.

Delivering expert advice is important and while we are experts in commercial real estate, you are the expert on your business. So, we begin by asking questions. This enables us to analyze your situation and needs, as well as market characteristics and trends. By understanding these key fundamentals, we are well positioned to provide a distinctive level of service that allows us to do what matters most: develop actionable plans that optimize results for your organization.

Buyer/Seller Representation

Whether buying or selling a property, our team is here to advise you every step of the way. We will help you achieve the best price for your property through a system of broad market exposure to generate immediate investor interest. You will have direct access to:

  • Experts in leasing, valuation, property management, and project management to ensure your building is optimally positioned for sale.

  • Marketing technology tools that enhance information security, reduce disruption to tenants and create a competitive bidding environment.

  • Professional advice throughout the negotiating process to swiftly close at your optimal price.

We also handle owner-user acquisitions and build-to-suits for businesses seeking customized facilities. We help companies that currently own their buildings sell or craft a sale-lease back to optimize their capital resources. We also represent institutional and private investors in property acquisition, management, and disposition.
