Testimonials

Quote mark-green-03

I have used the principals of OfficeLease on several occasions.  In addition to being totally above board and straightforward to deal with, they have always demonstrated a broad base of up-to-date knowledge about the real estate leasing market.  Since OfficeLease works as tenant representatives, they don’t have the split loyalties of many other leasing agents.  They are resourceful and innovative and their years of experience help put deals together in a workable, efficient, thoughtful way.”

–Jay Hadley, Ryan Swanson

What we found in both Paul Suzman and Larry Pflughoeft at OfficeLease was a real professionalism and integrity.  We felt assured that we were their client when looking for space and negotiating a lease.  They were always available to us when we needed them and are professionally very competent.  They understand a business that we don’t.  It was very evident that they were looking out for our best interests.”

–Al Starr, Private Industry Council

I have worked with many brokers, consultants and other real estate professionals and can honestly say that there are none in whom I have more confidence than the principals of OfficeLease.  They consistently bring value to our mutual clients with their unique blend of experience, intelligence, integrity and common sense.  They are more than real estate brokers or consultants, and act as the client’s real estate department, using their objectivity and analytical skills to understand their needs, find and evaluate alternatives and successfully negotiate leases and acquisitions.  OfficeLease’s approach to real estate problems is both thorough and creative.”

Over the past 10 years as the CEO of two different businesses while negotiating three different leases I have utilised the services of OfficeLease as my tenant representative . . . They’re the best in the field.  If you are an executive in the Greater Seattle area considering tenant representation and this written testimony is not sufficiently convincing, you may contact me directly at 425 286 9200 ext 201.”

When it came time to seek new space, it was my request that once again we hire Mr. Suzman at OfficeLease to help with this dynamic problem of relocating.  We couldn’t have done it without him.  We would use him again in a moment and if anyone were to ask it would be our pleasure to give him the most glowing referral.”

–Gil Powers, former Senior Vice President, UBS

We recruited Paul Suzman of OfficeLease to provide us with some professional expertise regarding the leasing or purchasing of office space in Seattle and he has been of immeasurable value to our committee.  He has a very clear understanding of the complexities of the Seattle Real Estate market, knows the political climate, and is familiar with most building owners.  His expertise and advice have been invaluable to our committee and without it we would not have made nearly as much progress toward our goal of assessing our facility needs and determining which option works best for our membership.  I would recommend him for this type of assignment without reservation.”

–S. Brooke Taylor, Platt Irwin Taylor

Because of our complete satisfaction with the work your firm did for us negotiating our original lease, we hired OfficeLease again to assist us with renegotiation of our corporate administrative offices.  You were free of any relationships with developers with whom we might be negotiating, and we believed that you were most familiar with all of the options that might be available to us in and around Downtown Seattle.  I was most impressed with your approach.  You took the time to clearly understand our objectives and your understanding of building development, assessment of alternatives and development of negotiation strategy were excellent.  You were sensitive to Nordstrom’s standing in the community and managed and timed the negotiations in such a way that, although we achieved a very favorable and flexible leas agreement, we have maintained a first-class relationship with our landlord.  We would highly recommend you to any institution requiring such real estate advisory services.”

I’ve been a real estate attorney for over 30 years and have known Paul Suzman and his company for over 10 years.  I regard him as a very capable and experienced office leasing broker and consultant.  I served on the WSBA facilities committee some time ago when we were interviewing a commercial tenant representative to assist WSBA in deciding whether to renegotiate its lease or relocate to a better suited location.  Given the overlapping client relationships held by various committee members, it was crucial that we be represented by someone who would conduct the process fairly and openly.  Paul Suzman and his associates at OfficeLease did a great job of calibrating the committee’s expectations early in the process and addressed in a very professional manner, any questions or issues that came up through the process.  All of us on the committee thoroughly enjoyed working with Paul and his team and were delighted with the outcome.”

–Gary E. Fluhrer, Attorney, Foster Pepper, PLLC

Paul Suzman and OfficeLease represented us the last time our 60+ person agency needed space.  When we chose to relocate we again hired OfficeLease to find an alternative home and were delighted with the results.  We particularly appreciate the very direct, principled way in which they conduct business.  I would gladly recommend OfficeLease to any organization needing guidance with facility acquisition.”

Paul and Rick, I’d like to thank you both for all your help in finding a great location for Trampoline Nation.  It took great perseverance and constant good cheer to pull together this very challenging deal.  You guys consistently showed a depth of knowledge of the market which was key, and your help during lease negotiations was invaluable.  I look forward to working with you again soon!”

Quote mark-green-03 I want to take this opportunity to thank both of you for not only solving our problem of finding new office space, but more over doing it in a professional way.  It was incredible, after working with other agents, you actually listened to what we needed and only showed us properties that fit our needs.  Once again from a very happy customer.”
