How We Match Our Clients with Local CRE Properties
At NAI Mid-Michigan, our team loves to see local businesses grow and new businesses take root. After all, our team members all live, work, shop and volunteer in the communities we serve. That’s why we go the extra mile to put the right business in the right spots, and stay open and responsive to changing needs. Here’s a brief look at how we match our clients with the right properties.
Start With the Basics — Purpose and Price
We’ll work with you to discuss and consider what features and amenities your business will need out of commercial space and the flexibility of your budget. Our team specializes in staying agile, responsive, and creative when it comes to serving our clients, no matter how unique your situation is. We know from decades of experience in this local marketplace that not every business fits into a traditional category for CRE (office, retail, industrial, etc), and not every business has the same goals. After all, many of our current real estate professionals have come to us from the business world. They know what it’s like to be in your shoes, making the challenging day-in-day-out decisions of running a business. While each agent has a distinct background, they also have each other for collective professional support.
Determine the Feel of the Neighborhood
Depending on your business, our team will work to match you with a region or neighborhood that meets your needs. We’ll consider proximity to major roadways, appropriately sized parking lots or structures, level of foot traffic, and other amenities that may be specific to your unique business situation.
Lease agreements can be one of the least pleasant aspects of commercial real estate. If you are looking to take on new leases either as a tenant or landlord, our team can review the lease terms and make sure they’re a good fit for your business and your bottom line.
We can also help you think critically about making strategic infrastructure improvements on a potential property and identifying any hidden costs. Our brokerage teams can help you analyze how current inflation and interest rates will affect your overall returns and may be able to advise on different strategies to maximize your investment.
Part of our big-picture discussions include thinking ahead to the future of your business. We’ll ask questions about your long-term business plans and how you see your business needs shifting in the next few years. If it’s the right fit for your business, we’ll help you find a commercial space that could be expanded or adapted for future growth. If you hope to open a new location in the next few years, our team will keep our eyes open for available properties and favorable market conditions. We’ll keep an ongoing conversation open so we can be there for you when you need it.
