There are a variety of services Kent can provide to help you reduce operating expenses, protect your assets and ensure you’re making sound investment decisions.
Protect Your Assets &
Make Sound Decisions
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, Kent can present you with the information necessary to make an informed decision and offer impartial recommendations based on his 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, Kent 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, Kent 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, Kent 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 Kent 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.
