My company is new and growing fast. We need more space. I thought it would be easy. Look at LoopNet, check out a few locations and sign up.
LoopNet is full of jargon and misdirection. You find listings that are no longer available. ("Oh, we just leased that. But I have another space just like it that I can show you.") Bait and switch BS.
After following leads around in circles, I was super frustrated with the process and getting closer to a space crises at the same time. I clicked Peter's site in Google. I really wish I'd done that in the beginning.
Honestly, I have been in business for my entire adult, but I'd never heard of a tenant rep, someone who specializes in helping commercial tenants like me find and lease space. It is an incredibly valuable service. Just knowing about it is worth a semester in business school.
Peter showed some great properties. He listened, came to understand my company and showed space that was relevant and possible. Each new space inspired me to look more. I got new ideas.
Finally when we decided on a great location in downtown St. Pete. I liked everything about it. But finding the right space was just the beginning.
My company is in the medical field and has many special requirements: unique electrical hookups, plumbing for oxigen tanks, and a one-of-a-kind floor plan.
I admit I was daunted by the lease and all the requirements of my company. But Peter stepped up and negotiated a great deal with my new landlord which included a generous build-out allowance.
There are not enough adjectives to describe how much Peter has done for my company. If you are looking to lease commercial space, do yourself a favor and call Peter. You will be real happy that you did.
Unbelievably, I paid nothing for his service. My new landlord took care of that.
