As companies outgrow their office spaces or look to downsize, their first step is often to reach out to commercial real estate (CRE) brokers to look for the perfect space for the next chapter. More often than not, however, they don’t have a clear workspace strategy for how they will use this new space. They often lean on their real estate agent to ask questions about whether or not their current furniture will work in the new space, whether or not the conference room would accommodate enough people, and so on. Without a clear strategy, it’s nearly impossible to know exactly what they’re looking for, what they need, or what they want just by looking at the space.
As many CRE brokers know, these clients are the ones who need to see a variety of options before they start to piece together a vision and an idea for what will work best for them. However, seeing so many options can become overwhelming, time-consuming, and frustrating for both the client and the broker.
