Letter from CEO
We are strategic advisors helping companies improve their bottom line through their real estate facilities!
Many of our clients thought handling their own real estate renewals or relocations themselves was the best way to handle their real estate facility requirements (leases or purchases). The truth is if you’re not in the market each day, you can’t possibly know all of the opportunities out there. For Example, Company x wants to sublease their space at .50 on the dollar but is too embarrassed to advertise that business is poor and they have to downsize, so only active consultants and brokers know about that option. We study and track each and every building and space in the market and know not only current availabilities, but also space that will be coming on the market. There is no other way for the typical space user to” keep their finger on the pulse” of what is happening in the market. What are the correct tenant improvement allowances, incentives, operating expenses, etc.? How do you know?
Get our Top Ten Mistake list tenants make to insure you don’t leave money on the table now or in the future. This will give you a good feel for the many items that are almost impossible for the person not involved in the market on a daily basis to follow accurately.
After completing over 900 leases, lease buy outs, subleases, purchases, and build to suits we have a proven track record as a top negotiator. Our philosophy is “win win” negotiations where the tenant will get the best terms and conditions the market will bear at that particular point in time. We received our CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert) Designation. We are the only broker in Ohio with both our SIOR (past member), haven taken all of the CCIM( Certified Commercial Investment Management) curriculum and CNE designations demonstrating the value we place on continuing education and expertise for our clients!
One look at our website demonstrates to you the savings that we have achieved for our clients year after year. We help many of the fastest growing firms in the country save in their lease renewals and negotiations.
The best part: If we can’t save you money nothing is paid to us. All fees are either paid thru the savings we negotiate or thru the listing agent. Also if you don’t use an agent representing your interest the listing agent earns twice as much even though they are not representing your best interests.
We have represented tenants, buyers and investors and have been for 32 years. No other firms have the “think tank” of exclusive tenant rep brokers nationwide to insure your growth will be handled properly and professionally. There are many brokers who will want to help you in this process. The main difference is we are a relationship based firm to help you with not just one transaction but to help you put together a strategic plan and implement that plan over the long term.
We want to earn your trust and become your “Trusted Advisor” much like your attorney or accountant who is called on as needed for the tough issues to help your company grow and prosper!
We will help you with getting all the right vendors involved: from move management, project management, architect, contractors and other vendors like new phones, furniture etc. We have national relationships here to save you money in these areas.
Lastly, each assignment typically takes 80-100 hours of time. Who will do this in your organization and how will they do their current job while doing this? Setting up the vendors we find takes another 40-50 hours. Who will do this? We can do it at no additional cost to you.
What would saving 50-150 hours on this mean to you and your productivity?
Please call me at your convenience to explore further how we might help you improve your bottom line for this year and years to come. Thanks for your time and consideration.
