Ten with Ben // “004: Meet Justin Kessler”

We’re back with a special guest in today’s Ten with Ben: Justin Kessler, Ben’s business partner. Ben and Justin explore thoughts on commercial real estate, COVID-19, and takeaways on working from home.

Listen as they discuss the importance of a tenant rep broker’s role with their clients and how engaging now — even if you aren’t ready to make decisions today — will set you up for success down the road.

While the return to work looks different for everyone, we all need to be safe, smart, and respectful in the workplace. Many continue to work from home and remain productive, but are there lost opportunities staying virtual?

 

Ten with Ben // “003: Exploring Your Lease Options”

Ben Azulay is back in this week’s Ten with Ben, diving into real estate in the new world. This week, he is focused on lease options and explains why a tenant may want to consider renewal, termination, or expansion options in their lease. Learn why these decisions are crucial for tenants, and why landlords may be hesitant to provide these options based on the market. And, what about possible signage or relocation options?

Listen as Ben discusses the importance, now more than ever, for leases to have flexibility — as well as protection — when tenants are moving into a new space.

 

Ten with Ben // “002: Negotiating Leases During Covid”

Ben Azulay is back in this week’s ­Ten with Ben to continue exploring leases in the “new world.” Many companies haven’t committed to a return date to the office, and it’s brought uncertainty to the market. There will be both temporary and permanent changes in the way we operate moving forward, but how will it affect your lease? Is now the time to renegotiate? If you have a lease expiration coming this year or next, you should be considering the options available to you.

Listen as Ben explains how we’ll be monitoring the market in the months to come to ensure we can position tenants in the space they need with a lease that’s right for them.

 

Ten with Ben // “Pilot: Subleases”

In the debut episode of Ten with Ben, Bradford Allen’s own Ben Azulay (Principal & Executive Managing Director), discusses commercial real estate in a COVID-19 world. Cities are reopening, but a “new normal” is upon us. So what does that mean for you and your space? If you’re utilizing less of it — or none at all — a sublease might be the ideal solution to shed unused space and save valuable capital in the months ahead.
 
Listen as Ben walks us though the basics of subleases, where we’re seeing them pop up in the local market, and why they’re a great value play for tenants — a plug-and-play solution that’s ready to go and priced below market.
