What Is The Plan?
We begin by meeting with you to form a deep understanding of your business and your vision. Next, you engage us by signing a Letter of Authorization (LOA). Then we determine the best method of Request for Proposal (RFP).
How Do We Execute?
We conduct a market survey to identify potential space and confirm it is still available. We clarify the commission policy with the landlord and request any additional needed information. We submit the findings to you and wait for your feedback.
Where Will We Look?
We coordinate a formal tour date and time and make sure you understand “Tour Etiquette”. We tour and recap the findings with you. We create a short list of three to five locations and then prepare a Request for Proposal for the desired locations.
How Do We Secure The Location?
We send out the Request for Proposals and request test fits if necessary. We review and evaluate the Landlord’s proposals and perform a lease analysis. Next, we review the results with you and recommend your next steps. If necessary, we will counter the Landlord’s offer and then you can select a building to lease.
Are My Lease Terms Fair?
We request a Lease and a Commission Agreement from the Landlord. You hire a real estate attorney to review the Lease Agreement draft. We send a copy of the deal term sheet to the attorney and wait to see if the Landlord accepts them. We request a final copy of the Lease Agreement for you and the Landlord to sign. We give your security deposit to the Landlord, submit a Commission Agreement, W-9, and invoice to the Landlord and we monitor any work to be performed in the space.
When Can I Move In?
We return the fully executed lease to you and keep a copy on file for our records. We monitor the payment of the invoice and then we consider the deal closed. At that stage, you move your business in to the location of your dreams!
