Benefits of Commercial Real Estate Consulting

 

Choosing the right location is critical for your business or organization and negotiating favourable leasing terms can be a significant cost saving. However, leasing commercial real estate is not an ongoing task for most businesses or organizations, so collecting the necessary information to make an informed decision would be onerous. As a real estate consultant, I can present you with the information necessary to make an informed decision and offer impartial recommendations based on my experience with the Vancouver real estate market.

 

A realtor who lists properties for lease, i.e. a listing agent, cannot serve the best interests of both the landlord and a tenant. Ultimately, a listing agent’s duty is to the landlord who contracts his/her services and the agent’s objective is to lease the space, regardless of whether it is the best option for the tenant.

 

In contrast, I will act in your business or organization’s best interest by:

  • Objectively researching the availability and rental rates of appropriate properties.

  • Developing resourceful real estate strategies based on your unique circumstances.

  • Disclosing all information that may affect your business or organization in a material way.

  • Preparing detailed comparative cost reports to analyze your shortlisted premises.

  • Using market knowledge to effectively negotiate on your behalf at your direction.

  • Preparing tenant oriented documentation.

  • Ensuring all deposits are held in trust according to the BC Real Estate Services Act.

 

Also, I will make the process of securing your future location as straightforward as possible by:

  • Providing a single contact point.

  • Performing all tasks promptly and professionally.

  • Assisting you in obtaining other necessary services, possibly including legal, space planning, and construction.

 

Whether your business or organization is planning to relocate or renew their existing lease, I can assist you in the leasing process by presenting you with objective and comprehensive market research, offering strategies for your particular situation, and negotiating on your behalf. While I will provide your business or organization with these services and act exclusively in your best interest, the landlord who successfully secures your tenancy will be responsible for all fees.
