The real estate market is going through a period of structural transformations: increased stakeholders in real estate decision-making, emergence of new players such as co-working and third locations, digitalization and increased tension on the real estate offer.
In this context, the Tenant Representation team assists companies in defining their business, organisational, real estate, financial and territorial challenges. It structures suitable real estate scenarios, assists its clients in prioritizing them and assists them in making decisions. Finally, it is responsible for the implementation of validated real estate projects. All dimensions are studied: real estate, technical and functional, legal, HR and ultimately their financial consequences. Indeed, the study of exceptional and recurring costs feeds into the multicriteria analysis and assists companies in making strategic decisions. In partnership with the Agency team, the consultants identify the most appropriate real estate solutions.
Whether you need to consolidate your locations, move, vacate your premises or renegotiate your leases, the Tenant Representation team will be able to serve your best interests.
