Alan is a location-agnostic agent for companies that are tenants or owner-occupants of office and industrial buildings. Alan interfaces with executives, real estate managers, or designated project teams to align transactions or real estate portfolio objectives with corporate strategies. Value to customers is achieved through experience and CBRE’s unmatched platform. Since becoming a 100% commission-based salesperson in January 1997, Alan has closed 696 transactions. In 2021, the end-user represented 47 of 52 transactions ranging from leases to the sale of vacated corporate property to a sale-leaseback. These end-user transactions included 15 outside of Maryland. Alan’s end-user expertise is balanced by CBRE’s industry-leading global reach, management-led selection of out-of-state CBRE agents, and countless additional CBRE resources. Additional resources could include Location Intelligence for market selection, Project Management for tenant improvement estimates, competitive bidding, coordination, etc., or Portfolio Services to track lease obligations, tenant’s rights, and cost relative to market rents.
