Product Description

While budgets are important to all organizations, we know that they are of even greater significance to nonprofits, since the more you save, the more you can invest in the communities you serve. However, real estate decisions should be made on more than just the bottom-line rental rate. The space you choose for your organization helps you to serve your community and attract and retain the best talent to make your organization a success. Our mission to you is to help you make a good business decision, not just a good commercial real estate decision. 

Our commercial real estate advisory services include: Leasing, Purchasing, Strategic Planning, Workplace Programming, Market Research, and Financial Analysis.

Pricing Information:

In a typical real estate transaction, fees are paid by the landlord and no out-of-pocket fees are required to be paid by the organization. 

We do offer additional consulting services such as Strategic Planning and Project Management that may billed on an hourly basis (if they are independent from a transaction). Proposals can be provided based on the scope and nature of the project.
