“Better Properties. Better Terms.”
“They find ’em better than we can.”
“Usually at no charge to us!”
“LeaseSmart has networks, databases and resources I don’t have. They share in fees paid to the Landlord’s agent, so there is no cost to me. I keep running MY business while they take care of things.”

OUR PROVEN PROCESS TO MAXIMIZE RESULTS
Imagine walking through your new, perfect space. It has the qualities you originally envisioned, and more! Imagine the joy of knowing you paid less than you expected, and you minimized risks at every opportunity. You know you made the right decision when you added LeaseSmart to your team of trusted experts. Welcome to our world!
Finding the Best Properties and Negotiating the Best Terms. It’s all we do. Site selection, location analysis, lease and purchase negotiations and due diligence.
Frankly, we’ve never failed to add substantial value to our client’s situation, most often saving them both money & time.
Our Proven 8-Step Site Selection process produces the best choices:
#1: Our special ANALYSIS PROGRAM allows clients to accurately determine the size space they need. (Don’t forget to calculate the hallways and common areas!) Present needs and future expansion. We also fine-tune features you may be taking for granted. Signage, visibility, access, loading docks, ceiling heights, HVAC and electrical requirements, parking requirements, office layout, important nearby amenities, transportation, and much more.
#2: We strive to find EVERY POSSIBLE CHOICE. We use all available databases and personal contacts to communicate with every possible seller, landlord or broker who may have facilities in which you might have an interest. Many available spaces are off-market. The general public cannot find them. We can.
#3: We perform a DETAILED DEMOGRAPHIC & TRAFFIC ANALYSIS. We compare one site to the other. One, three and five mile radius? No problem. Five, ten and fifteen minute drive times? Easy! Your business create a lot of jobs? We may want to assess governmental incentives available in the locational choice. Depending on the size of your business, this decision alone could be worth millions of dollars.
#4: We TOUR THE FACILITIES. We consider many on and off site factors to determine the best possibilities.
#5: Once clients decide on their favorite choices, we prepare and submit a very detailed PURCHASE OR LEASE OFFER. This includes a myriad of terms, including all the various incentives and improvements we want the Seller/Landlord to provide.
#6: After all parties come to an agreement on the basic financial terms, we then NEGOTIATE THE LEASE OR PURCHASE AGREEMENT. There are always many items that need tweaking. Especially as concerns many “what if” scenarios. This is where kick-out clauses, expansion clauses, liberal sublease and assignment clauses and many others come into play. After all the business terms are settled, now it is time to submit things to your attorney for a final, legal review.
#7: After the Lease is signed, we STAY INVOLVED for the term of the lease, to make sure the Landlord is living up to their side of the bargain.
#8: Our clients RECOMMEND US to all their business acquaintances! (Okay, this is not ACTUALLY a property acquisition requirement, but it happens so often we thought it should be included!)

Frequently Asked Questions (Answers too!)
1) What is an Exclusive Tenant Representative?
Known in the industry as “Tenant Reps”, we represent a specialized commercial real estate niche that represents the interests of the business owner only – never the landlord or seller. While some excellent companies do both Landlord and Tenant Rep., exclusive Tenant Reps do not list property – avoiding the serious conflict of interest the general Broker has. Think about it: When real estate brokers show you space they have listed, are they representing you or the Landlord/Seller?
2) What do Tenant Representatives do for me?
Three simple reasons clients use us when they lease or purchase new facilities:
Protects Their Interests – With years and years of full-time experience, we can negotiate the Lease or Purchase thoroughly to get the clients the very best price & terms possible, and make sure various clauses protect their interests.
3) What is the cost of Site Selection services?
While extremely valuable, our services usually require no fee from our clients! We usually share in the fees the Landlord or Seller is paying his agent. Our only requirement is that clients work thru us exclusively, so we can devote the time and resources necessary to do the job.
4) What if I find a building on my own?
We still represent you. Give us the contact information and we call on your behalf. Fact is, finding the property is only half the battle – the other half is negotiating the Lease or Purchase.
5) Can I be sure I am seeing everything available?
That is our goal and we try our best! But since no one is perfect and new properties come available every day, it is possible you will only see 99% of the market. By using specialized networks, on-line search services and market knowledge, we come much closer to 100% market knowledge than if clients attempt this themselves. (Note: Many of the transactions we do are in spaces that were not “on” the market! Only by our contacting all the various brokers and owners do we discover properties that are occupied, but “can be made available”.)
6) Can I have several Tenant Reps working for me at the same time?
No. If three brokers bring you the same properties – with whom are you going to work? Fact is, one exclusive Tenant Rep, working hard and contacting all the owners and brokers will always find far more potential spaces than several brokers who are only working a little, or only showing you their own listings (of course, at that point you actually have NO representation, since the broker has a fiduciary obligation to represent the Landlord. )
