What is Tenant Representation?
In most transaction negotiations the real estate broker represents
the landlord or owner. If the broker has a written agency agreement
with the owner, he has a legal obligation to represent the best
interest of the owner and negotiate the best deal possible for him. If THE MAKEN GROUP
is providing you tenant representation, we have an obligation to
negotiate the best possible deal for you. And typically, our fee will
come from the landlord or owner, so our services may cost you nothing.
Market knowledge and how to best accommodate the unique needs of your
business are the cornerstones of our tenant representation services. By
consulting with you to learn about your plans, issues, budget and more
we can apply our knowledge of the market and current trends to create
an optimal transaction for you.
By having THE MAKEN GROUP represent your interests
you’ll be assured of knowing about all of the properties available that
fit your criteria. You’ll also know what existing tenants at those
properties are paying. We will also give you critical insights into
many important issues, such as how much you can expect the new owner to
pay for construction of new improvements and how to recognize
opportunities for negotiating more favorable terms into your new
lease. We will find the best site for your needs, negotiate the best
terms and prices possible and make sure your move goes smoothly. We
can help you with many facets of the process, from help with relocating
equipment to logistics and recommending architectural or design
firms. We are the experts in tenant representation with a proven track
record of representing both office and industrial clients.
Once THE MAKEN GROUP has consulted with you to
learn your objectives and needs, we will do a preliminary search of
available properties. Then we will do a thorough analysis of each
site, looking at all aspects of the properties, rates, terms and
conditions. Then we will present you the best available options. As
we proceed we will give you critical advice on issues pertaining to the
lease negotiations and tenant improvements.
We will be happy to talk to you about the details of the process THE MAKEN GROUP uses to help you find your new facility and negotiate the best deal possible.
