Tenant Advisory Group, LLC is a licensed independent commercial real estate broker that specializes in office lease tenant representation for renters and buyers.
Whether finding your first commercial space or renegotiating a long-term lease we make this process easier by providing education and advice based on our in-depth office lease tenant representation knowledge and years of experience.
Working with us ensures that you find the right property, negotiate the best lease or purchase rates and have a professional relocation and build out process.
What is the difference between a leasing agent and a tenant rep?
The leasing agent holds the lead to the property and represents the interests of the property owner.
Tenant Advisory group is a tenant representative, working on your behalf and representing only your interests. So, the leasing agent is working to get the most money out of you to benefit the property owner, while we negotiate fair terms that provide you, the tenant, with the best possible deal.
Our clients, as tenants, don’t pay us a thing for our top tier office lease tenant representation services. Tenant Advisory Group is paid by the property owner once the lease is fully executed through a fee that will already be paid to the landlord’s broker. In other words, a fee is paid regardless of whether you use a broker or not.
Due to our extensive tenant background if you are the property owner we know what to look for and how to deal with all tenant realtors.
In addition to providing commercial office lease tenant representation we are much more for our clients, offering strategic consulting services on everything from finding property to negotiating the lease or purchase, to the actual build out and move in process. We are able to help you with new leases, lease restructures, lease renewals, acquisitions and sales, strategic advice, in-depth research and residential sales and purchases.
We work with businesses ranking from large national corporations to private family-held single location operations.
