Buyer & Tenant

Representation Services

REC's Buyer/Tenant Rep Division, unlike our competition, has no inventory to promote. We strive to understand your exact requirements and only present opportunities to you that meet your criteria. We understand your frustration as an investor with being bombarded with properties that do not meet your criteria. Our objective is to create an environment that fosters trust where we can assist you with your investment acquisitions for decades to come.

Buyer & Tenant Representation BUYER & TENANT REPRESENTATION SERVICES: Running your successful business leaves you with little free time. Let REC take care of your real estate needs. Whether you are launching a new venture, out-growing your existing facility, or need to add another location, we will conduct the search based on your requirements, organize personal tours of the properties you like, negotiate superior lease or purchase terms that meet or exceed your expectations and assist you with the transition into your new facility. The best part? We never charge you for our services!

Corporate Consulting Services CORPORATE CONSULTING SERVICES: Your business has taken off and you now need a regional or national presence. Whether your company is a franchise, corporate chain, or professional services organization that needs offices around the country, REC can be your real estate department. We work with companies on a national level to find the real estate they need in new markets and negotiate lease and purchases on their behalf, from coast to coast. Instead of finding a new broker in each market where your company needs a new facility, we will personally meet you in the city where your company is growing. Knowing your company’s real estate needs and duplicating that model in new cities will streamline your expansion efforts and save time and resources that would otherwise be needed to manage different brokers around the country who do not yet know your concept and corresponding needs.

Own vs Lease Analysis OWN VS LEASE ANALYSIS: Favorable financing conditions exist that make owner occupied commercial real estate quite attractive but does leasing real estate allow you to achieve more important corporate goals? We want to make sure you are doing what is best for your business, whether that means buying or leasing your next facility. Let us help you decide whether buying or leasing is a better fit for your business.

Lease Renewal Management LEASE RENEWAL MANAGEMENT: Whether you have previously negotiated a lease renewal option or not, your landlord’s goal will usually be to maximize his profits at your detriment. Even if you intend to stay in your current facility, REC can oftentimes help leverage your position during lease renewal by expertly bringing market information and forces to bear on the transaction – again, at no cost to you.

Due Diligence DUE DILIGENCE: Finance, legal, architecture and design, entitlement, construction, moving logistics and property management.

Investment & Development Services INVESTMENT & DEVELOPMENT SERVICES: Whether working with national developers or investment organizations, regional boutique operations, individual real estate investorsor family offices with an interest in commercial real estate investments, REC can custom-tailor the search for your next acquisition to your exact requirements. We actively participate in our clients’ acquisition campaigns in a wide variety of contexts including → Section 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges, → Absolute NNN Income Generating Properties, → Site Identifications with Calculated Future Redevelopment Potential, → Value-Add & Distressed Properties, → Off-Market Opportunities, → Bank REO, → Greenfield Developments, → Development Services Consulting
