We do not just farm your important office space requirement out to the best local tenant representative.  Whether you have several small needs or one large need, 24-year veteran John Tobin will remain your one point of contact from start to finish.

Unparalleled On-Site Service by a 24-Year Veteran Specialist:  Please see “Report Cards” where we have been rated as “excellent” in all categories serving the Corporate Real Estate Manager of a Top 30 Mortgage company with over 160 offices as their national tenant rep over a 4 year period through 9/2007.  Also, under "What Clients Say", you can review our unique national qualifications and the substantial results we have generated working with national office tenants.  We can provide this on-site personal focus and high level of service and flexibility because we do not carry the overhead and distractions of a large national firm.  We do not delegate the important initial steps in the office leasing process described above to a local broker less invested in your success and less familiar with your critical operational directives.  Our national tenant clients have found from experience that our hands-on approach makes a huge difference in favor of the national office tenant.

His inside perspective on the office leasing/purchase process and proven track record of creating measurable client benefits makes John Tobin unusually qualified to represent the financial interest of the national, regional, and local office buyer/ tenant.  John ensures that the buyer/ tenant and the seller/ landlord are on a level playing field at the negotiating table. 

Since 1984 John Tobin has developed, defined, and customized space solutions by carefully considering all factors in the office purchase/ lease negotiation such as:

  • Creating an atmosphere of landlord competition resulting in the lowest cost and most flexible lease terms for the office tenant

  • Side by side Excel based cost comparison of office leasing alternatives

  • Lease language from a tenant business perspective

  • Early termination options

  • Expansion options

Timing is everything!  Beginning the process as early as possible provides greater negotiating leverage.  We recommend that office tenants engage our services up to 18 months prior to their lease expiration.  If you wish to level the playing field, call Ellen or John Tobin at (216) 858-1000 to get started.
