A Rare WBE (Women’s Business
Enterprise): National OfficeTenant Rep Firm
Woman owned national office tenant representation
firms are very rare. TENANTreps.net Corporate Real Estate Advisors is the only
woman owned national office tenant representation firm that we know.
TENANTreps.net is more than 51% owned, operated and controlled by its Partner
Ellen Tobin, Berkeley MBA 1995 and a U.S. citizen. Ellen founded TENANTreps.net
in 1999 in partnership with John Tobin. As a WBE, Women’s Business Enterprise,
TENANTreps.net requests that national office tenants review the ownership
diversity credentials of their current national office tenant representation
service provider(s). As a WBE, TENANTreps.net requests that national office
tenants who have made a commitment to supplier diversity consider giving a small
percentage of their national office tenant representation business to nationally
qualified WBE providers like TENANTreps.net.
A Commitment to Supplier Diversity
Our national office
tenant clients support the growth and expansion of relationships with minority
and women owned business enterprises ("M/WBE"). They continue to develop and

diverse communities in which they do business. They tell us that these
relationships enable them to:
Deliver exceptional products
and services to their clients

the communities they serve

Diversity success. Their Corporate Sourcing Departments are responsible for
