Guidance Corporate Realty Advisors represents only the corporate users of commercial real estate. We don’t accept listings from Landlords or Property Sellers because we strongly believe that working for both Owners and Buyers creates potential conflicts of interest that may not be readily apparent to a Buyer.
Site Selection & Purchase
Purchasing appropriate land to build an office, industrial or special-use building requires specialized knowledge and expertise.
Our Buyer Representation is Different
Guidance Corporate Realty Advisors:
Has extensive experience representing buyers of office and industrial properties, and land, on straight-forward to complex transactions.
Operates only as an exclusive Buyer's Agent or Buyer Representative.
Our fiduciary responsibility is solely to you and we work hard to advance your interests.
We listen carefully to understand your needs and work through a proven plan to provide creative, flexible and cost-effective solutions.
In almost all cases, our fees are paid by the Seller.
Our clients range from local firms with a single location to Fortune 500 companies with multiple sites.
Many commercial real estate brokerages operate as “Full Service” firms. At first glance, this sounds good – what’s wrong with offering a full range of services? And, in fact, this was the way commercial brokers operated for many years. But, Full Service brokers typically represent Landlords, Investors, Owners as well as Tenants and Buyers.
For example, did you know a commercial broker (or brokerage firm) may make double the commission amount if it represents both the Buyer and Seller (Property Owner) in a transaction? Will a broker negotiate aggressively on behalf of a Buyer if this broker also has a listing agreement with the building Seller, or is soliciting this Seller’s listing business for another property?
The Guidance Approach
Experience, detailed knowledge, strong skills and high technology — these are the tools that Guidance will bring to bear when representing your interests as a corporate Buyer Representative. Our senior brokers have extensive commercial real estate and corporate backgrounds, and strong analytical and negotiation skills. We know the market and how to structure purchase transactions that will produce the greatest value for your business’ bottom line.
All Guidance projects are assigned to a Principal-led team. This team always includes at least one experienced associate broker, and may include a project manager (if requested). The team is expanded, as required, by adding legal support, interior architects, electrical and mechanical engineers and construction general contractors. With our client making all key decisions, we manage this team to produce results that meet or exceed all business goals.
We don’t like surprises – especially bad ones! That’s why we work hard to craft purchase contracts with strong contingency provisions, and work hard during the due diligence period to thoroughly understand and document the property’s strengths and weaknesses. We want our clients to enter into purchase transactions with their eyes open and to fully understand any potential issues or concerns.
We have developed a thorough, documented process designed to create maximum value for our clients. We understand that purchases of commercial facilities are an important, often critical, component of our clients’ business success. We take our responsibility in this area seriously and strive to add value to exceed our clients’ expectations!
We have earned the trust of our loyal clientele by the way we conduct ourselves. You will find that our key qualities of reliability, responsiveness, integrity, drive, tenacity and enthusiasm means the difference between just completing a real estate transaction and creating a highly effective business solution.
By focusing on the business objectives of our clients, we consistently produce purchase solutions that are creative, cost-effective, productivity enhancing, flexible and well documented. We search diligently for potential purchase options and use leverage to drive down the potential purchase price. We understand commercial purchases and purchase contract language, and push hard to protect your rights in these important documents.
Our loyal clientele is our best advertising. Almost 65% of our business originates as repeat business or referrals from our clients to other firms! They tell their friends about us and keep coming back, because we consistently provide high quality services that exceed our clients’ expectations.
