Our ServicesWe work together. We communicate. We cooperate.
At Equity Retail Brokers, we put tenants’ interests first. And for that simple reason, many of the country’s top retailers, along with a wide array of regional operators, continue to trust our veteran retail brokers to help them discover and pursue commercial real estate opportunities across eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
Our tenant representatives have a proven track record of catalyzing higher real estate performance, whether the task at hand is:
- rolling out new stores in promising markets;
- downsizing, enlarging or relocating existing locations; or
- renegotiating leases to secure more favorable terms in alignment with a retailer’s broader real estate strategy.
For our tenant representatives, the first step in any client engagement is to cultivate a thorough understanding of the retailer’s business and goals. Our brokers do a deep dive into the client’s perspective on its customers, real estate criteria, competitors and preferred lease structures and co-tenants. They also work hard to understand the optimal real estate culture and process for any given client.
After listening carefully, our tenant representatives bring their own value to the table by highlighting opportunities to move the real estate strategy forward. With decades of experience and extensive contacts in commercial real estate, they understand the art and science of site-selection and lease-negotiation. That means gleaning insights from in-depth market research, anonymous cellphone data and other tech-centric resources, while also relying on knowledge born of their own direct experience in the markets we serve, right down to specific counties, townships and neighborhoods.
At Equity Retail Brokers, we view tenant representation as a long-term partnership. Our top priority is to provide all of our clients with the same high-touch, results-oriented service, whether you’re a regional clothing chain with just a few locations, or a coffee powerhouse with stores all over the planet.
The investment sales team at Equity Retail Brokers has the experience, resources and know-how to ensure that our clients receive the highest prices for their commercial real estate assets for sale—with the lowest transaction costs. Our motto: “Better Service, Better Rate, Better Results.”
In working with us, sellers of commercial real estate assets in eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey benefit from our investment sales team’s sharp focus on professionally marketing commercial real estate properties for sale—everything from ground and triple-net leases, to the gamut of retail, restaurant, c-store, office and medical properties and buildings.
We produce attractive, branded and complete offering memorandums, and give our clients access to our wide array of distribution resources. In addition to our investment sales professionals’ own extensive network of contacts, Equity Retail Brokers belongs to the Retail Brokers Network—more than 600 leading agents working together across the North America to connect buyers and sellers of commercial real estate assets.
Our deep bench of investment sales talent has a proven track record for bringing deals to a close. They are seasoned professionals who understand the cadence of managing transactions and have the problem-solving and people skills to maximize results for our clients. They are also cognizant of risk: With thousands of deals to their collective credit, our investment sales professionals understand the nuances involved in due diligence and are adept at ferreting out potential problems and risks with prospective buyers.
To ensure that our clients yield the highest net return on their assets, Equity Retail Brokers rejects the inefficiencies of the traditional brokerage model—one in which firms operate with untenable expenses and carry questionable inventory. This, in turn, allows us to establish the lowest-possible commission structure for each asset, based on criteria such as the quality of real estate and tenant; the term of the lease; overall demand for the asset and the cost to market it.
It’s a formula that allows us to close a higher percentage of transactions at a lower transaction cost to sellers. “Better Service, Better Rate, Better Results.”
