Corporate Real Estate Services - Sometimes It's a Sale - 05/23/11 10:45 AM
I am a Corporate Real Estate Advisor. Most people use the term "tenant rep" which is short for "tenant representative" because it's shorter and easier. I'm fine with that because most companies want to lease space instead of buying it. But Corporate Real Estate Advisor is a better term because we handle all real estate services that a company might need. This includes leasing new space and negotiating lease renewals as you would expect, but it also includes: 1. subleasing space no longer needed, 2. buying buildings for company use, 3. selling buildings no longer needed, 4.

It's All About Timing - 05/02/11 05:02 PM
I have lived in Plano, Texas for the last 15 years and have been in the North Texas area for most of the last 30 years. I was working in the yard yesterday afternoon with Toots - my half pointer, half pit bull, all play, 4-legged daughter. She loves working in the yard with me, but it often creates more work than if she were inside, but then that wouldn't be any fun. It had been raining and storming overnight and half the morning so I didn't go out to work until late in the afternoon to give things a little (0 comments)
