When the time comes, you want to make sure the disposition process is handled by a professional.

We will make certain the decision to sell supports your business objectives and, if so, that you get the best possible price for your assets. We are unique because we work with our clients to develop a well thought out strategy, asset specific, and ensure each phase of the process is delivered via an integrated, controlled model.

Thanks to our full-service capabilities our relationship with our clients isn’t limited to a property sale. We can work with you to determine the next best steps.

Market trends are also factored in, as are any of the subject real estate’s other unique attributes.

Office Lease Renewal

In many situations, renewing your existing leased industrial or office space may be your preferred option. The current building location might suit your employees and clients, and your existing space may work well for your business. Additionally, renewing your lease may prevent disruptions that often accompany relocating a company.

  • But, how do you know about other options available in the marketplace, and confirm that you’re getting a competitive lease renewal rate from your Landlord?
  •  How do you proceed if you need additional (or less) space when renewing your current lease?
  • How will you negotiate a competitive lease renewal package with an adequate Tenant Improvement (TI) Allowance to update your space with new carpet, paint or to make other necessary alterations?

Surprisingly, in many cases, the Landlord’s renewal rates and terms offered to its existing Tenants may be less attractive than the rates and terms offered to new Tenants! This is because Landlords know that, statistically, the majority of Tenants prefer not to move, and that many Tenants assume their Landlord will give them a “fair deal.”

  • When you renew your lease, the Landlord typically spends much less on TIs when compared to a new Tenant. The TI allowances provided to new Tenants can be significant, because new Tenants often require major reconfigurations to a space, as well as updates to carpet, paint, lighting and other finishes. However, if you don’t need this level of build-out, the renewal rate offered to you by your current Landlord should reflect these lower costs. Additionally, your lease renewal means the Landlord will not suffer any uncertainty or loss of rents. The key to maximizing your leverage in this situation is to create a competitive environment, forcing your Landlord to make a renewal offer that recognizes the benefits your tenancy. Lower costs and lower risk (of vacancy) should translate into lower renewal rates for you!

  • Landlords often discourage existing Tenants from seeking competent representation when it’s time to discuss a Lease Renewal.  We have extensive experience successfully negotiating lease renewals and expansions. We will develop a competitive environment making sure that your Landlord will compete for your business. And we accomplish this in a professional manner that does not damage your relationship with your Landlord. Additionally, in almost every case, your Landlord will pay our fees, just as they will pay the fees of a broker representing a new Tenant.

  • We have earned the trust of our loyal clientele by the way we conduct ourselves. You will find that our key qualities of reliability, responsiveness, integrity, drive, tenacity and enthusiasm mean the difference between just completing a real estate transaction and creating a highly effective business solution.

  • By focusing on the business objectives of our clients, we consistently produce leased space solutions that are creative, cost-effective, productivity enhancing, flexible and well documented. We have crafted many creative lease structures to accommodate our client’s needs for expansion, contraction, termination, extensive tenant finish build-out or other special requirements. We understand commercial leases and lease language, and push hard to protect your rights in these important documents.
