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. Your development of negotiation strategy was excellent. You were sensitive to Nordstrom’s standing in the community, managed and timed the negotiations in such a way that, although we achieved a very favorable and flexible lease 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 a known Paul Suzman and his company for over 20 years. I regard him as a very capable and experienced office leasing broker and consultant. I served on the WSBA facilities committee when we were deciding whether to renegotiate its lease or relocate to a better suited location, it was crucial that we be represented by someone who would conduct the process fairly and openly. All of us on the committee thoroughly enjoyed working with Paul and his team and were delighted with the outcome.”

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.”

OfficeLease’s principals really understand the business implications of real estate decision making. They analyze the deal from both the tenant’s and landlord’s perspective to establish a sound basis for negotiations. They are great team players too; and facilitate the entire process working closely with both tenant and their attorney to craft as tenant-friendly a lease as the market allows. They are true tenant representatives.”

Social Venture Partners needed new offices but wanted to collocate with other, evolving, dynamic, organizations that shared our values. When the opportunity presented itself, OfficeLease coordinated and expedited the process on the tenants’ behalf and made the deal happen. We and the others truly enjoyed working with Paul and would strongly recommend OfficeLease to any firm needing space.”

OfficeLease identified a 26-acre site that was not on the market and negotiated a purchase price at the most optimistic end of our team’s expectations. They did a great job of effectively working through a multitude of sometimes complex issues with our attorneys, project managers, the property owner and others. It is difficult to imagine that we would have ended up in such an ideal situation without OfficeLease’s involvement.”

OfficeLease’s knowledge of Seattle real estate and analysis of costs for both lease and buy options, and experience in the non-profit sector proved solid and invaluable. We grew to trust Paul’s negotiation intuitions and judgements which led to a very favorable lease that suited our current needs and future growth projections. Paul’s personal commitment to stay with us”until we were happy in our new space” was absolutely fulfilled. Throughout this process I’ve developed a deep respect for his integrity and acumen. I would not hesitate to call on him again and highly commend him”

As executor of an estate with both real estate holdings and retail space requirements, we were referred to Paul Suzman at OfficeLease by one of his long-term clients. Paul is a very knowledgeable and able advisor and a creative, principled, negotiator with an excellent sense for and way with people. We highly recommend his services.”

When we were outgrowing our last building, OfficeLease helped us develop a real estate plan and in a very tight market, identified and helped us negotiate a lease in a very suitable architecturally significant property, Pier 56, which has served us extremely well. Paul and his associates were valuable hard-working members of our team in whom we had great confidence and Paul consistently demonstrated that his priority was to serve our long-term best business interests. We would, without hesitation, recommend their services to others.”
