K2 Audio was a start-up company with big plans for growth.

Adams County, Colorado

Buyer Representation: Purchasing a 55,000 SF Office Building

We were engaged by our client to help locate and negotiate an approximately 35,000 RSF office lease in the NW Denver area for a facility to house several county departments. After researching and touring a number of potential options, we had not yet found the ideal solution. Our tenacity paid off, however, and we located an attractive office building for sale within the targeted location.

Paradigm Health Club

Development Consulting:  Design and Construct a Special Use Building

We were initially engaged by the principals of The Paradigm Health Club to help them locate and lease a facility for their planned athletic club to be located in Louisville, Colorado.  The facility requirements were challenging: a special-use building with large amounts of parking, high ceilings, heavy HVAC and specialized interior build-out, and the potential club location was critical because visibility and accessibility were key issues.

Your strategies were effective, your advice was sound and your expertise lent credibility to our project. Your reputation and professional approach gave us access to top-notch architects (and) general contractors.

Mia and Bob Jasper

Principals, The Paradigm Health Club

As a newcomer to the area, Stride benefited greatly from (their) knowledge of the local business landscape, understanding of the current business climate and facility at identifying appropriate properties to consider. The last of these points came from their ability to listen. They took the time to understand my views on what would be important to Stride in not just selecting a site, but in succeeding in a given location.
