Masterguide to Leasing for Retail LandlordsTM e-manual provides proven best practices in four areas of the lease negotiation process educating commercial real estate professionals about the latest trends in leases and little known techniques to enhance revenues while reducing enterprise risk.
The concepts in the 261 page book come from actual hands-on, practical experience leasing retail properties and not just theory or general business concepts. It is based on the experience of personally leasing over 5 million square feet of retail space throughout North America and administering to thousands of tenant leases crafted by dozens of North America’s leading landlords and tenants.
Each of the 15 easy to read chapters builds on the previous one to provide a complete understanding of a leasing process specifically benefiting retail property landlords. You will gain skills and knowledge that can be implemented immediately – on the transaction you are currently negotiating.
