Commercial real estate solutions. Specializing in site selection, lease negotiation, and investment sales within the commercial real estate market of the Puget Sound. www.faircommercial.com
Who we are, where we work, and why you should hire us
Fairhaven Commercial, Inc. specializes in the sale and leasing of retail and office properties. We are the only multi-office firm in the Northwest dedicated exclusively to representing landlords and tenants within these asset classes. We focus on representing our clients with unparalleled market insight allowing them to achieve the best outcome for whatever their real estate requirements may be.
Honesty. Market knowledge. Results. Our clients find our approach unique and refreshing. We tell our clients the truth, sometimes at the cost of making a deal. If we don't know the answer, we tell you we don't know the answer and do everything in our power to find it. We're certainly not the right fit for everyone, but we would love a chance to find out if we're the right firm for you.
Services - Tenant & Landlord Representation and Acquisition and
Our integrated resources have helped tenants meet their objectives in markets and locations throughout Western Washington and the West Coast. We analyze each tenant's business objectives and match them with the optimal real estate solution. Services for expansions, relocations, consolidations, subleases, acquisitions, and dispositions include strategic planning, demographics, site consultation, comparative financial analysis, lease negotiation, construction, and post-occupancy advice.
After we've had a chance to evaluate each of our client's needs, we'll generally prepare an assortment of tools for them to properly analyze each potential market and location. These tools might include:
A summary of the local, regional, or national markets including detailed site maps, demographics, inventory, gap analysis, trends, competition, and more.
A full package is completed on each particular site including detailed aerials with drive times, competition maps, trade areas, traffic counts, and custom demographic studies.
Since there is far more to site selection than the address and asking rent, our team will prepare a full financial analysis on each location showing you the true cost to be a tenant in each property. This analysis covers specific costs associated with a site including build out, operating costs, parking, utility and zoning issues, signage, and more.
We don't stop working for our clients when the best location is discovered. Providing referrals for attorneys, architects, engineers, and other service professionals combined with an extensive knowledge of and experience with lease negotiations sets us apart from the competition. We like to think of ourselves as partners in your business and take pride in selecting locations that give our clients the best chance at success in whatever market they're in.
Fairhaven Commercial specializes in a custom approach to marketing and leasing our client’s properties. We market availabilities on more sites and in more places than any other brokerage firm. If applicable, your property will be listed and maintained on the following websites with a detailed flyer created by a commercial real estate marketing professional:
A flash website will also be created for your property allowing for easy access to vital information and one more avenue for potential tenants to discover the advantages of your property. Additionally, your property will benefit from target marketing to ideal tenants at many regional, national, and international real estate conferences annually that Fairhaven Commercial participates in.
The Extra Step
Rate, term, and tenant credit are some of the important factors in lease negotiations and tenant selection, but so are the intangible factors each tenant brings to your property. Tenant mix is vital to the occupancy and cash flow of a property. We understand how to market your vacancies or upcoming projects in order to maximize the cash flow of the property while ensuring tenants are able to thrive through strategic co-tenancy. With a combination of market analysis, tenant relationships, and data derived from sources such as the Site To Do Business (www.stdbonline.com), Retail Planet (www.theretailplanet.com), and Retail Lease Trac (www.rltrac.com), we can tell you exactly who the best fit for your vacancy will be. Isn’t that better than taping a sign in the window and crossing your fingers?

After we've had a chance to evaluate each of our client's needs, we'll generally prepare an assortment of tools for them to properly analyze each potential property for acquisition. These tools might include:
Summary of the local, regional, or national market including detailed site maps, demographics, inventory, gap analysis, trends, competition, and more.
A full package is completed on each particular site including detailed aerials with drive times, competition maps, trade areas, traffic counts, and custom demographic studies. Our team analyzes existing leases and how they compare with the market as a whole as well as the expected rental rates and timeline involved with vacancies.
Since there is far more to property acquisition than the rent roll and property address, our team will prepare a full financial analysis on each location showing you the key financial measurement tools that are important to each individual buyer's needs. This includes discounted cash flows, internal rate of return, cash on cash return, and more. Couple that with our ability to analyze existing leases and predict future absorption to ensure that much, if not all, of the unnecessary risk is removed from your analysis.
At Fairhaven Commercial, we do a lot more than just write up an offer and have our client sign it. By tracking and analyzing every listing and sale in Northwest Washington, we provide great insight into market conditions, cap rates, and availabilities that sets us apart from the competition. Anyone can analyze a property, but not everyone can back up the analysis with the detailed market knowledge and experience you get with Fairhaven Commercial.

Fairhaven Commercial was founded by a lifelong resident of Western Washington that saw a need for client representation throughout the Puget Sound, not just Seattle. Through his time spent in commercial real estate at Colliers International and Cushman and Wakefield in Seattle, to being born and raised in Olympia, and most recently providing brokerage services at Windermere Commercial in Bellingham, he brought a thorough understanding of the unique markets and opportunities to be found throughout the region.
