How a Great Calgary Commercial Realtor Can Help Behind the Scenes

When most business owners or executives find themselves looking for a Calgary commercial realtor, it’s because they need help looking for the perfect retail or industrial space, or because they want help understanding the market and lease options. What they find, however, is that the right Calgary commercial realty expert can be a big help in a lot of other ways, too.

To give an example of what I mean, consider the story of new clients who recently came to me. They were new to running their own business, but had a well-developed business plan and were ready to invest in a rollerskate retail location, to support the thriving sport of roller derby – not exactly something you’d consider to be “mainstream retail,” but a business with surprisingly positive demographics. When you combine that with their expert knowledge of the field, and experience with similar businesses, it all added up to an idea with lots of possibilities.

After I got to know a bit about their background, plans, and needs, we began the property search. It didn’t take long for us to find a location that we considered to be absolutely perfect for what they were looking for. The location was right, the community was full of potential customers, and the space was large enough to accommodate their needs while still falling within budget.

There was only one problem: The property owners weren’t interested in renting to someone without an established business history.

Given their firm insistence that they weren’t interested in renting to a new business, that could easily have been the end of the story. But, after some conversations with their management company and some more investigation into the issue, I found that their real concerns revolved around broken leases and unpaid bills.

And so, after reviewing my client’s personal financial history with the property management company, and making some additional guarantees on the lease, we were able to come to a compromise and secure a lease agreement on the perfect space for their new business opportunity.

I fully expect that they’ll be successful for years to come, and while that certainly is due to their smart planning and hard work, I’m extraordinarily proud of the small part I’ve gotten to play in making their dream come true. What’s more, I think it’s the way a Calgary commercial realtor should work – always trying to find creative ways to give clients what they really want and need.
