Who Needs Us?
When it comes to hiring a commercial real estate representative, people often think, “Why would I hire someone to find my office or warehouse space when I can do it myself for free?” And believe it or not, we understand why they might think that! A quick Google search and a few phone calls may find some good space options. And you probably think going about it this way saves you money. But the truth is that it usually doesn’t. In fact, going about it on your own can actually cost your company more money and time in the long run.
The reality is hiring a commercial tenant representation firm like CTR Partnersis actually a great financial decision for your company, especially since you don’t pay any fees to have CTR involved. In fact, commercial tenant representation will likely save your company time and money. How?
We know the market. While a little research on the Internet can show you some of what’s available and give you a vague idea of average pricing, it doesn’t give you a truly comprehensive look at the market. At CTR, knowing the market inside and out is what we do. We can guide you through all the options that meet your criteria and help you avoid being overcharged for your space.
We are experienced negotiators. It’s our job to be the voice of our clients throughout the entire process of finding them the right space for their business. And when it comes to advocating for our clients, one of the most important parts of the process is negotiation. We know when a price could and should be lower, when concessions could and should be higher, what rent escalations are comparable to current market conditions, and what extra allowances can be reasonably negotiated. We also have years of experience with the various landlords, and know how to negotiate to our client’s advantage. It’s our goal to get you a fair deal—the best deal—to meet your company’s goals.
We maximize your money. Hiring a representative allows you to maximize the money you’re spending on your space. In other words, we help you get the most bang for your buck. We’ll help you figure out the right size and layout of the space you need, and then we’ll make sure you’re paying a fair price for it. There’s no need to spend your money on space you aren’t going to use!
We save you time. You are fully invested in your business. And that business doesn’t stop when it comes time to look for a new office or warehouse space. Having a partner to handle the real estate process gives you back the time you need for your business. By partnering with CTR and allowing us to take the lead, you’ll be able to fully focus on your business and keep it functioning at its best.
