More About Finding Office Space

If you are looking for a home, the internet has become a game-changer. People have instant access to websites like Zillow, Trulia and Street Easy as your go-to places to rent, buy and sell properties.

Commercial real estate, and particularly finding office space is a little less straightforward. There is no uncomplicated method to finding the most relevant property listings online, much less trying to find a knowledgeable broker to assist you in the process.

If you’re in the market for office space, here are a few consumer websites that you might consider looking at. Some come more recommended than others. Read more ›

The phrase “We Sell Or Else” was the promise of David Ogilvey, the man who is widely considered the father of the advertising business. Being great admirers of Ogilvey, my team and I have adopted “We Sell or Else” as our daily mantra.

In fast-paced world it seems a good trade-off for the convenience and time savings of having products delivered right to your door… Read more ›

Want to Be Invested Without Owning Buildings?

Recently, I had my annual meeting with my personal money manager to cover the progress of my retirement accounts. Since I am in the real estate business it is only natural that the subject of REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) would come up. He rattled off a list of names, and since health care is such a dominant industry in the Triangle one REIT in particular caught my eye… Read more ›

The Different Types of Office Buildings

Office buildings are generally classified into one of these three categories: Class A, Class B, and Class C. These classifications allow brokers and their clients to more easily characterize and differentiate available office space. Because standards vary by market, there is no exact science to the classification of office buildings. Even though the classifications within the “office” category of Commercial Real Estate are somewhat subjective, there are some basic guidelines that I will provide here…  Read more ›
