This week, Ben is taking on listener questions to give his feedback on the CRE market and occupancy trends. Ben shares how companies can benefit through landlords cutting rental rates and buildout costs in addition to sublease spaces coming to the market in mass. Taking a look at your lease now will help you evaluate your needs when you’re ready to renegotiate.
How will the Chicago market look in five years? Are the aftereffects of COVID-19 going to change things indefinitely? Listen as Ben walks us through the office footprint of the future.
Lastly, we’re focusing on the positives to come from the past seven months — learning to prioritize, finding a work-life balance, and increasing efficiency throughout your workday.
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?
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.
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.
