Startup and high-growth companies constantly struggle with finding the right office space to meet their specific business needs. These companies need to strike a balance among several qualitative and quantitative factors including rental budget, term flexibility, location, image/aesthetics, etc..

The process can be daunting and time-consuming for busy entrepreneurs who are focused on their business, and the office leasing market can be a dynamic and challenging environment. Companies that have a defined strategy and professional tenant representation, however, can create a position of leverage in the real estate marketplace and position themselves for great success because of it.
