Tenant Representation Services

Save Money.  Win Better Terms.

Find your ideal Class "A" Office Space.

Commercial tenant representative Jeff Tabor has an over three decade track record of success in commercial real estate representing tenants
 

The Jeff Tabor Group works solely for tenants. That means we can configure smarter deals and  negotiate harder on behalf of our clients to get them their ideal office space deal.

How Do We Work? 

“Most large brokerage firms won’t play hardball against landlords for their clients.  They are juggling too many landlord transactions” says founder Jeff Tabor.  “That's because they’re negotiating ten other deals on behalf of the landlord you’re going up against! Your landlord may very well be their biggest client.”

Jeff understands the need for a true tenant representative. He built his career working for the other side -- representing landlords.

In 1993, he recognized that commercial office tenants needed a champion – a true tenant representative. He founded Corporate Realty Advisors -- now the Jeff Tabor Group -- that very year, and since then has provided more value to his commercial office tenants than any traditional broker ever would or could. 

Just ask his clients!

The fact that you only represent tenants,

coupled with your extensive knowledge of the negotiation position of the landlords with whom we were negotiating, translated into large financial savings for our firm.”

Be represented.
Not "brokered."

A commercial real estate broker often plays both sides of the fence – and has a fiduciary duty to make sure that he’s bringing in the most money to his firm – regardless of the interests of any one client.

At the Jeff Tabor Group we work solely for tenants, so there’s no conflict of interest. Jeff Tabor personally leads this team, and brings over 35 years of experience to the tenant’s side of the negotiating table.

Adding value every day, year after year.

We offer a comprehensive package of services that go above and beyond what the traditional one-dimensional,
transaction-only focused broker can do for you:

We find great office space.

Office space is the living, breathing soul of a company that closely mirrors its brand.

Open floor plans, historic buildings, polished floors, modern interior designs are just a few of the building accoutrements that JTG can help your company locate and negotiate.

From our three bases of operation, we’ve got Los Angeles and Orange County covered. Our three locations are just down the street from professional, Class “A” commercial office space – from Pasadena to Thousand Oaks, from Downtown Los Angeles to Century City and Newport Beach.

Get below-market terms and save money.

You are busy. You've got a business to run. Commercial leases are complicated, containing dozens of pages and hundreds of terms.

Landlords include as many onerous terms they feel they can get away with.  Landlords are counting on you not paying attention to the many dozens of “boiler plate” lease terms.

With an expert lease negotiator and renewal expert in your corner, you can win landlord concessions such as:

  • Gorgeous, tricked-out tenant improvements

  • Moving allowances paid for by the landlord

  • Discounted or free parking

  • Free rent (Ask us about it!)

  • Building sign rights - your name on the building

  • Favorable expansion and renewal options

  • No personal guarantees

  • Flexible lease termination rights

  • Extensive protections against landlord building operating expense pass throughs.

We provide hands-on care and pour over every single line of our clients' leases to ensure that they’re getting the best possible deal. No other Southern California real estate broker provides the detailed analysis and negotiating skills that you’ll experience with The Jeff Tabor Group.

We save you money by negotiating away unnecessary expenses.

Our clients avoid the extra operating expenses that pad your monthly bill.

Do you know the three costs that are stipulated in your lease? Chances are, they're

rent

paid parking

building operating pass-throughs
(landscaping, taxes, management fees, maintenance, repairs, etc.)

Let's talk about that third expense.

In auditing your expenses, we frequently discover that tenants have been pre-billed and charged for expenses for which they should not be. These can include insurance, capital improvements and parking.  Jeff Tabor Group clients don’t pay these extra costs, we make sure of it.

Armed with knowledge and a seasoned negotiator in the Jeff Tabor Group, you don't need to pay these extra line items and you can rest easy.

“You saved us over $300,000 during the first year alone on our renewal!

Your representation was far superior to what we experienced last time.”

We help you avoid costly mistakes.

With over 35 years of experience, we have seen it all. We can protect you and your firm – saving you considerable money every year.

We've seen all the hidden one-offs and “gotchas!” that landlords like to hide in your lease.  Ever wonder why the landlord’s building operating expense bills are so opaque and so frequently hard to comprehend? Because it is meant to confuse you!

Too often landlords rely on busy tenants simply glancing over the terms of an office lease without fully realizing the potential liability and financial ramifications they are signing away over the life of the lease.

Working with the experts at the Jeff Tabor Group saves you money.

We suggest extensive lease changes that protect you against the unforeseen and unknown issues that could pop and bite you.

Your former broker didn’t do that….did they?

We audit leases and win favorable terms.

Call us. We'll perform a free, detailed analysis of your existing lease. We'll suggest upwards of 80+ changes to better protect you. There is no obligation. We're that confident that when you see the value we create, you'll bring us on as your commercial real estate advisor.  Jeff Tabor Group addresses such issues as:

We handle everything.

No other broker comes close to offering the bespoke experience you’ll get from the Jeff Tabor Group and it costs you nothing.

Founder Jeff Tabor knows the tricks of the landlords’ trade because he used to sit on the other side of the negotiating table.

We're experts at finding the weak points in a lease, areas where operating expenses can grow out of control, and one-offs that can significantly impact the bottom line of the tenant.

  • We review your contract.
  • We reduce unnecessary operating expenses
  • We facilitate competitive bids on moving costs, phones, IT, furniture acquisition and tenant improvements.
