SERVICES

TENANT REPRESENTATION

At wkCommercialGroup, we make sure to understand our clients’ businesses and place a premium on highly successful transaction execution.

We have successfully represented all kinds of companies from start-ups to publicly traded companies and the basic formula is the same.

TRANSACTION MANAGEMENT

Lease review with client’s attorney along with managing user group input and architectural/construction planning 

While space availability and vacancy information are readily available to anyone and all brokers; optimal transaction execution is based on the depth of the commercial real estate professionals review and analysis of the data, marketplace, and understand a client's need not only today but how it might change over the term of the lease, among other elements.   

There is no cost associated with our services. Our fee is paid by the landlord.

LEASE RENEWAL

If you are happy in your current space, extending your lease term is usually the easiest, most efficient, and most cost-effective solution for your business… HOWEVER, IT’S NOT ALWAYS THE BENEFICIAL OR MOST COST EFFECTIVE! 

 

At wkCommericalGroup, we look at a lease renewal as a brand-new lease transaction.  We do this not because we want our clients to relocate. Actually, quite to the contrary.  While renewing can be the most cost-effective transaction for a tenant, it’s not always the case.

 

Landlords know that tenants don’t like to move and, in many instances, will capitalize on the fact most tenants choose the path of least resistance. It’s often the case that tenants who renew without professional representation pay on average about 7% more than the going market rate.  Just as landlords have representation for their interests, tenants need an expert negotiating on their behalf and looking after their needs during lease renewals and/or expansions/contractions within existing office buildings.

 

We encourage all tenants when faced with a lease renewal to evaluate their specific set of circumstances based on current market conditions and their company’s office requirements with the same vigor and due diligence as an office relocation. 

 

When addressing lease renewals, we strive to achieve optimum results by creating a competitive negotiating environment between the current landlord and competing landlords in the area. We have the background and expertise to understand landlords’ negotiating tactics as well as accurately access the cost differential between renewing a tenant in the same space versus replacing that very same tenant. 

 

wkCommericalGroup’s ability to leverage knowledge of the marketplace during negotiations with landlords will secure the best possible terms for our clients.
