Business Owners and Managers
Tenant and Buyer-Owner Occupier Representation
As a business owner, a commercial real estate specialist may very well be the most valuable tool available to you in managing your business’ real estate needs. Whether you are looking to lease or buy space, our experienced brokers will diligently work to protect your best interests and provide guidance and support every stage of the leasing or buying process.
When working with business owners and managers, we provide our assistance and expertise throughout the acquisition process from beginning to end. As business owners ourselves, we know the nuances to look out for and what pitfalls to avoid. We begin by learning about your business. We discuss your current needs, future goals, and ideal preferences. Then, we work with you to determine the best location, space criteria and requirements. Is this a space you can grow into? Do you plan to add more segments to your business that would require more space or different space in the future? Are you looking to wind down or retire within the next 10 years? All of these factors affect the current space you’ll need. An appropriate space plan and the overall cost of your occupancy are key factors in assisting business growth. After we pinpoint a few options, we provide our market knowledge to assist in negotiating the absolute best lease rate or purchase price possible.
What will it cost me? As a tenant or buyer, there is no upfront cost to work with our experienced brokers. We are compensated by the seller or landlord's broker, and our commissions are paid by the seller or landlord.
Our Landlord representation services are designed to maximize return on investment and asset value for owners. As commercial investors ourselves, we know how important good, long-term tenants are, who will care for your property as if it were their own. We provide creative, custom marketing to attract tenants you want.
We know what items are most important to maximizing profit and long-term value. We help building owners to unlock a property’s potential by developing a deep understanding of the property’s unique attributes and pairing it with our local market knowledge while employing proven marketing techniques that will showcase your property’s best qualities to your prospective tenants. Our goal is to maximize asset awareness and exposure, increase occupancy through leasing, and stabilize occupancy through tenant retention while achieving optimal rents to enhance investment value. Utilizing a mix of old and new marketing techniques from networking, print collateral, and prominent signage to social media and other digital promotion, our proven property marketing strategies help Landlords attract the right tenants to meet ownership’s investment objectives.
When working with buyers who are owner-buyers or off-site investors, we provide our assistance and expertise throughout the acquisition process from beginning to end. We understand every buyer has different objectives, preferences, and risk tolerances. As such, we begin our process by getting to know our clients so we can be sure to present the best investment opportunities given their unique criteria. We understand your time is valuable and presenting properties that fit your unique requirements is vital for an efficient and effective process.
If you’re an owner-buyer, we have excellent lender referrals to provide you with excellent options for the building purchase. SBA Loans are great options and there are alternatives through private lenders as well. We have access to private lenders who can assist with bridge loans and more for commercial purchases for owner-operators.
After we pinpoint suitable properties, we assist with the due diligence process, providing comps and other relevant market information, finding or referring lenders, contractors, and other potential vendors as well as leasing the property after closing. In addition, as commercial property owners ourselves, we consider not only all aspects of your acquisition and ownership but also an exit strategy once you have realized your financial goals for the property and are ready to move on to the next investment opportunity.
When selecting a listing agent to assist with the sale of your commercial property, it is important to choose an experienced brokerage that possesses extensive local market knowledge and the reach and resources to get your property sold within a reasonable timeframe. More importantly, it requires the right people with the right skillset to develop AND execute an innovative marketing plan that produces the highest sale value for the property.
To begin the process, we assist with the analysis of a property’s current valuation and the preparation of cash flow presentations, both actual and projected. Then, based on this information, we will discuss and offer recommendations on property presentation techniques and supporting marketing materials that will be created for a successful market launch of the property. Throughout the listing process, we will periodically discuss feedback from brokers and prospective purchasers with our clients, along with recommendations allowing us to fine tune our marketing plan accordingly. Our goal is to maximize the disposition value of your property while getting it sold in a timely manner.
Due to a combination of our global reach through our sister company, Elite Homes – Christie’s International Real Estate, and the local reach of our agents who are community leaders, we can ensure maximum exposure of your property to potential buyers/investors. As opposed to simply passively listing a property and waiting for inquiries, we actively reach out to local brokers and targeted buyers.investors to personally inform them of the investment opportunity.
