St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) December 10, 2007
The exclusive office tenant representation firm, Tenant Rep Agency, LLC, announces that it has signed a long-term teaming agreement with the largest architectural firm in the world -- HOK -- to deliver all architectural services to all clients of its Tenant Rep Agency St. Louis office.
HOK is known the world over with offices in seven countries on four continents.
When the office leasing client retains Tenant Rep Agency, this new teaming combination with HOK now delivers all the mastery level expertise in client needs assessment, real estate evaluations, interiors planning, construction drawings and project management of the office leasing assignment.
"Today, Tenant Representation has just been entirely redefined. Now, even our 5,000 sq. ft. tenants will receive the same superior service typically provided to much larger tenants. And our company can now easily manage massive and build-to-suit projects," according to Tenant Rep Agency Chairman, Christopher D. Desloge. "Advantages to our clients of this unique teaming of subject matter experts in office leasing and architecture include one-stop leasing and project management in a consolidated process with no conflict of interest. A built-in architect and expert negotiators make for a great tenant advocate. I view this as Perfect Office Leasing. If this team can't do it ... it can't be done."
Architects and real estate brokerages occasionally joint venture; typically on select, individual larger transactions where the brokerage brings in the architect to round out the team. Tenant Rep Agency's innovating new business model unites brokerage and the largest architectural firm in the world on all leases, of all sizes, for all clients. An example would be: an average regional insurance office with 20 people now automatically gets one of the finest architectural firms in the world to work on their offices and at no more cost.
HOK (formerly Hellmuth, Obata + Kassabaum) is a major, international architecture, interiors, engineering, planning and consulting firm. As of 2007 the firm employs more than 2,000 professional staff across the world and is active in all major architectural specialties.
Desloge continues, "We investigated many fine firms for this aspect and HOK is extremely dedicated to office leasing assignments through HOK's Interiors Division. There isn't anything HOK hasn't already faced and solved. That means our clients get the same thing."
This is entrepreneurial innovation on behalf of both a small business and a major corporation.
Also, while Tenant Rep Agency advances and campaigns LEED-CI "Green" aspects to its clients as the standard benchmark, now the HOK LEED expertise can deliver.
Tenant Rep Agency is expanding outside of its founding city of St. Louis to select markets.
Tenant Rep Agency is a commercial real estate brokerage company specializing in office tenant representation united with architectural services for leasing and project management.
