There is no other book available which creates a direct and tangible result for the tenant; this is a first for the commercial real estate business, and a first for office tenants.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 3, 2007
iUniverse, Inc., the leading provider of publishing technology solutions for authors, announced today the publishing of a major, new weapon for commercial office tenants throughout the country containing all the inside knowledge required to outwit landlords at their own game. The book is titled, The Tenant's Guerilla Guide to Office Leasing.
The Author, Christopher D. Desloge, is a twenty-five year career executive in commercial real estate specializing in tenant representation of office tenants.
The office leasing market has a major economic impact on the vibrancy of the economy and now with The Tenant's Guerilla Guide to Office Leasing tenant's large and small have the information to control the leasing process, manage costs and win in negotiations.
In the real estate world, the landlord usually holds the cards. It is the landlord who builds or buys the building, arranges the financing, constructs the interiors, as well as hires the leasing agent and property management company. The landlord writes the leases, and pays for the attorney to avoid the leases being changed. The landlord knows exactly how much money he will spend on construction, leasing commissions and concessions; he knows exactly how much he will spend on operating expenses and exactly how much he will charge the tenants. Finally, in office leasing, there is a book designed specifically for the tenant...a comprehensive weapon containing all the inside knowledge required to do more than just level the playing field with the landlord, but to actually grant the control to the tenant. The Tenant's Guerilla Guide to Office Leasing contains all the inside information to avoid landlord tricks, control many costly details and manage a lengthy process.
"Tenant's around the world can have in their hand the tactics and strategies to greatly improve their position in office leasing, financially, in building selection, and with lease term negotiations," said Desloge. "There is no other book available which creates a direct and tangible result for the tenant; this is a first for the commercial real estate business, and a first for office tenants."
The target audience is the millions of companies which occupy office space; corporate real estate executives; commercial real estate brokers and agents; uniquely, as a highly specialized book for office tenant's, Landlords can learn the techniques used to defeat them; architects; attorneys; property management companies and executives.
The national angle is that there are literally millions of office tenants and this book applies to a national and international audience. Hundreds of thousands of leases expire each year; this book applies to each of them.
The book is controversial because it takes an antagonistic approach against the landlord. It promotes a sense of advocacy for the tenant, a form of "Robin Hood" advocacy; and it reveals all the information landlords wish not to be known. The emotional hot button is that the book is empowering to the tenant, fostering a sea change in office leasing to the tenant's control.
Christopher D. Desloge parlayed his experience in leasing major metropolitan and suburban office towers into a successful career representing office tenants. He has published numerous articles on tenant controlled office leasing and was a founding member and member of the Board of Directors of the International Tenant Representative Alliance (ITRA), and now owns The Tenant Rep Agency, LLC with plans to open offices throughout the United States.
