Helping Clients Stay Ahead of the Curve

Realizing that selling, buying or leasing space can seem like a daunting task at times, Paul’s mission is to build a partnership and provide clients with the best possible advisory and real estate transaction services in order to help them accomplish their commercial real estate goals. Whether it has to do with selling, purchasing, leasing their property, or finding a space to lease, Paul’s goal is to help clients make the most informed decisions possible by keeping them abreast of the market with the hope that they will stay ahead of the curve by gaining the clarity necessary to make the right choices at the right times.

Proactive Brokerage = Added Value

Whether selling a building or leasing space, Paul’s belief is that one has to be extremely proactive these days in order to get results. That means taking control, anticipating, and making things happen rather merely reacting, adjusting to a situation, or waiting for something to happen. This begins with combining accurate underwriting, market analysis, and strategic planning to determine not only where a property or space stands, but how to differentiate it from others in the current market. It also entails the knowledge and experience of how to bring a commercial asset to market via a thorough marketing plan in order to ensure maximum exposure to the marketplace while leaving no stone unturned in finding the right prospect for the asset. Lastly, it’s about providing expert transaction guidance as well as the ability to effectively negotiate a deal in the client’s best interest. Ultimately, a proactive broker such as Paul will help you achieve the highest possible price, in the shortest amount of time, and with the least amount of hassle.

Good Communication is a Priority

At the end of the day, Paul’s job is to handle the details so that you can focus on what’s most important to you…your business and your own life. Yet he’ll actively keep you informed and involved every step of the way while providing his professional opinion, input on key lease or sales terms, due diligence issues, potential problems, etc. During the process, you’ll be updated regularly on our marketing efforts, prospect activity, as well as changing market conditions that may affect your commercial asset. Calls with be returned and questions will be answered in a timely manner. All of this done with the hope of making the process the least stressful as possible.
