"The Biggest Mistake Made During Site Selection"


"How to Break Your Lease"


“Cash Flow Preservation” That’s what we help businesses do – all day – every day. Finding them the best commercial space and protecting their interests, getting them the lowest rates and best terms...all at no cost to them!

And that’s ALL we do! We never represent Landlords, never take listings.
Because representing Landlords AND Tenants at the same time is impossible to do without creating a serious conflict of interest.

Our priority is you! No hidden agendas, no conflicts of interest – we offer commercial real estate expertise at no charge to you!


What is an Exclusive Tenant Representative?

Known in the commercial real estate industry as “Tenant Reps”, we represent a specialized commercial real estate niche that represents the interests of the business owner only - never the landlord. While some companies do both Landlord and Tenant Representation, an exclusive commercial real estate Tenant Representative does not list property - avoiding the serious conflict of interest the general Broker has.
Question: When commercial real estate brokers show you space they have listed, who are they representing – you or the Landlord??

What Can A Tenant Representative do for me?

Three simple reasons why our clients use us when they need new facilities:
Saves Them Time – We do the space search better than they can. Our local and national network of real estate brokers and developers finds all your available options.
Saves Them Money – Clients save money by focusing on what they do best - their business – and our knowledge of the market gets them a better deal than they can get themselves.
Protects Their Interests – We negotiate the Lease thoroughly, and make sure various clauses protect their interests.

What is the cost of Tenant Rep services?

Tenant Rep services, while highly valued, usually require no fee from their clients since the Tenant Rep usually shares in the fees the Landlord is paying his agent.

What if I find something on my own?

We still represent you. Give us the phone number and we call on your behalf.

Can I be sure I am seeing everything available?

That is our goal and we try our best! But since no one is perfect and new properties come available every day, it is possible you will only see 99% of the market. By using specialized networks, on-line search services and market knowledge, we come much closer to 100% market knowledge than if clients attempt this themselves. (Note: Many of the transactions we do are in spaces that were not “on” the market! Only by our contacting all the various brokers and owners do we discover properties that are occupied, but “can be made available”.)

Can I have several Tenant Reps working for me at the same time?

No. If three brokers bring you the same properties – with whom are you going to work? Fact is, one exclusive Tenant Rep, working hard and contacting all the owners and brokers will always find far more potential spaces than several brokers who are only working a little, or only showing you their own listings (of course, at that point you actually have NO representation, since the broker has a fiduciary obligation to represent the Landlord. )
