Facilities costs – lease expenses or mortgages – are often the largest expenses a company has after staff related costs. Unlike staffing, facilities costs are generally fixed or have very limited flexibility. In the event of financial difficulties their impact is magnified. Space decisions are critical – ideally, to be a great fit in supporting the business overall, and to avoid space obligations becoming a company killer.
Kevin Grossman assisted companies with their leases as a business tenants’ broker for many years before joining the Green River College Business Center as an advisor. He has helped clients navigate decisions on over 3 million square feet of space in markets around the Puget Sound. Clients have included companies from distribution & logistics to software & biotech, from automotive maintenance businesses to professional services firms.
Good decision making is about being systematic, a thoughtful process. Having information and tools with which to make sound decisions is crucial to navigating the negotiations. You want to get the best deal-fit for the company under the market circumstances at the time.
