Let’s face it; options are endless and when navigating the shared office space minefield, it’s wise to pick your battles. Save yourself the stress and enlist a pro, here are just a few things an Office Broker can do for you.
All options in one place
When you type into Google ‘shared office space’, anywhere between 1.2 million, and 302 million results are generated. Even heading into commercial real estate websites, you’re faced with hundreds of thousands of options. When you’re looking specifically for flexible office space, it doesn’t make it any less confusing.
Flexible office space brokers do the work for you with all options in one place, there’s no confusion and everything is crystal clear.
They understand each shared office site
When we approach flexible office space alone, the advice provided by each individual site is limited to that particular location. The beauty of shared space brokers is their in-depth understanding of each location that is on their books.
Flexible office space brokers have already toured the site, asked the tricky questions and have a rapport built with the site managers. They understand the shared space market specifically and can clearly explain any ambiguities to you. This includes any fine print in your contracts, what exactly is included in your monthly fee and even, what kind of vibe each centre has. This comes particularly in handy when your working environment is of the utmost importance to your team.
Tailor made, impartial recommendations
Sales has always been a competitive industry, we’ve all heard horror stories of sometimes biased advice and one or two things being left unsaid. It’s normal to feel a little wary of promises, especially when it involves your business.
With hundreds of different locations on our books that belong to a variety of different service providers, our office brokers provide impartial advice on the workspace solution that best suit you. Once we know what you’re after, we match workspaces that suit your goals, environment desires, budget and location needs.
We work hard to develop relationships with all their service providers, our primary concern is finding your perfect workspace solution.
All communication in one place
Everyone wants the best space for their team for the best price. The only way to ensure this, is to cover all bases and view all options that are appropriate for your needs. But it’s a lot of work. Viewing all options means dozens of different site managers to speak to, negotiating the same deal, wasting hours a day repeating yourself until you find what you’re looking for. Why bother with the back and forth when someone can do it for you?
Office brokers provide an end to end solution for you, so you never need to remember what you said to who and when- again!
Negotiate the best deal
When you’ve finally found your dream office, the last thing you want to be dealing with is the back and forth of contract negotiations. You’re too busy excitedly packing boxes and trying to run your business. Office brokers can give you the leading edge in contract negotiations, utilising their experience and great relationship with the service provider to get you the best deal.
Best of all- Free!
Office brokers are paid a commission by the service providers. There is no mark up on your rental to compensate, you simply get the best price, on the most appropriate workspace for you and your team.
