On July 25, 2013, Barbara Kane, Managing Commercial Real Estate Director and Broker of Record for Keller Williams – Beach Cities taught a two hour class to some of KW’s residential agents on the basics of Office Leasing.
As a specialist in Tenant Representation on all kinds of leasing (office, industrial and retail) – be sure the type of “use” will work with the building being leased and the local City Government before getting too far down the road into lease review.
When planning a corporate relocation, companies with 200 or more employees should bring on a move consultant and/or start planning their move at least 6 months in advance. Companies with 800 or more employees should start the move planning process 7-9 months in advance.
All mover RFP’s issued must have quantities of all furniture and equipment to be moved or liquidated. A TBD does not work in place of a quantity – as the movers must have quantities to bid any move. If a client is unsure of a quantity or what will be moved or liquidated– then they/you need to help them estimate quantities – based on a worse case scenario before an RFP is issued.
As primarily a tenant leasing representative broker, it is important to clearly qualify “tenants” before spending time showing and negotiating space in order to save both the tenant and broker time. Tenants need to clarify clearly with the broker what their “wants” and “musts” are for a space. And most importantly their budget and timing to acquire space. Brokers should clearly explain the current market conditions with regard to rental rates and availability in the market being searched to their clients. A mis-communication on either part will waste everyone’s time. Contact Barbara Kane at firstname.lastname@example.org for further tips on negotiating leases.
In September of 2012, Kane Consulting relocated the staff of United Talent Agency (UTA) approximately 300 people to a new corporate headquarters in Beverly Hills! Their new location is obviously suiting them quite well. See the link attached for more information http://soa.li/ejwk0Ak . “They were a fun group to work with!” – says President of Kane Consulting, Barbara Kane. We miss them and hope to get invited to a screening soon.
