Having worked for both tenants seeking space and landlords looking to find the right users for their project, Jeff and John have a unique understanding of how to approach each requirement in a way that results in a win-win for all parties involved with everyone's goals being met.
Commercial real estate is a daunting world to enter without experience, and the potential pitfalls along the way are abundant and often costly. Utilizing an expert is the best way to find properties that not only provide a well-located functional space to work and grow your business, but also to ensure that zoning, occupancy, and many other jurisdictional issues are amenable to the specific needs of a craft beverage business.
