Building Purchases & Sales
Lease Abstract Services
We go beyond simply finding you great space. We strive to create real value and deliver substantial results that positively impacts our clients’ profitability, time and peace of mind. Here are a few ways we make a difference:
With 50 years of experience under our belt (including 5 recessions), we’ve just about seen it all. We solve real estate problems, plain and simple. Have a real estate problem? Bring it on.
We live and breathe healthcare real estate. Through the information we consume each day to the work we do for our clients, we dedicate ourselves to understanding the latest trends in healthcare real estate for the benefit of our clients.
We specialize in finding solutions where others have only seen problems. Do you think that Hospitals holds all the cards in negotiations? We don’t.
Your company already has a business plan. We’ll build a personalized real estate plan that can scale with your business plan to help you achieve your long-term business goals. It grows out of a clear understanding of who will fill each roll, time-frames and budgets. So that the end of the process looks like what was promised at the beginning.
When anyone within your clinic has an issue (whether it’s real estate related or not), we want you to give us a call and know that it’s handled, plain and simple.
Our services go beyond the completion of a lease, and we in fact remain a resource and consulting arm after a lease is signed.
Our commission is paid by the landlord, so there is no cost to you. Most businesses would rather not spend more time on achieving their real estate goals than they absolutely have to. We have found that a crystal clear real estate plan that matches a client’s business plan, with clear assignments and deadlines, takes time out of the process and ensures success in real-time.
Q: What are the benefits of hiring an agent?
A: There are several benefits, including:
– Knowledgeable 3rd party to negotiate for the most favorable terms possible on your behalf
– Financial savings, because you are negotiating in an atmosphere of competition.
– Time savings, because we do this all the time.
Q: Why wouldn’t I just try and do my own negotiating first, and then bring in an agent if I need one?
A: A successful negotiation is one that starts with a well thought out strategy and critical path. We’ve found that when a Landlord is negotiating directly with a Tenant, with no broker reminding the Landlord of the competition, the Landlord will inevitably try to make a “captive” deal, rather than a competitive one.
Q: How much does it cost to hire an agent?
A: Nothing. We won’t charge you a dime. It’s the industry standard for the landlord to pay our fee. In fact, our research shows that our compensation is usually a small fraction of our clients’ savings.
Q: When is the ideal time to discuss my commercial real estate needs?
A: It depends on the size of the business and the real estate need. However, if you are looking for new office space, or if you are considering renewing your lease, we recommend starting to understand the market 24 months prior and commencing the renewal/relocation process at least 12 months prior to your lease expiration.
Q: Why do new tenants get better deals than existing tenants on renewals?
A: They don’t always. It is extremely expensive for the landlord to lose a tenant. If the landlord understands their tenant is strongly considering alternative locations, the landlord will almost always make significant concessions to renew the tenant.
