SDG&E | Jim Seifert, Manager of Corporate Real Estate, Land Services & Faciliites
Kristina Metzger from the CBRE Data Center Solutions group has assisted SDG&E on very complicated data center related projects. The data center space is a unique skill set, and I was impressed with her knowledge of the market conditions from tenant and landlord perspectives. Her understanding of requirements from the user perspective added tremendous value to our process.
CBRE’s Data Center Solutions Group lowered Cox Communications existing rent expense by 25% and dramatically reduced the subjectivity to risk by renegotiating the legal language of our managed service contract. They provided the market intelligence needed to decipher that renewing in place was the best solution and created the competitive environment to negotiate the most aggressive terms.
Broadcom | David Eastman, Senior Manager, Data Center Infrastructure
I have been very impressed by Kristina Metzger & CBRE’s Data Center Solutions Group. Together with her global counterparts, she has been successful in negotiating on behalf of Broadcom new and renewal transactions which have significantly lowered Broadcom’s operating expenses and increased flexibility.
Affymetrix | Tony Ward, Senior Vice President
I wanted to take the time to thank David Crabb and Ryan Egli for their contributions in driving our lease transaction to completion. In addition to helping us secure the right location while minimizing the impact to our business, with a favorable mix of rates and terms, you and your team dealt with multiple sub-lease scenarios, interim extensions, parking agreements in addition to the usual, and unusual, associated landlord issues.
Dragon Alliance | Ryan Vance, Chief Financial Officer
Working with David Crabb and Doug Works on our recent lease negotiations proved to be a rewarding and positive experience. Their grasp of the market dynamics in Carlsbad and South Orange County was invaluable. The team’s persistence and perseverance paid off in the midst of continued market related delays. In the end, they worked out a result that was optimal for all parties.
National Pen | A. Foote, Director, Corporate Services
Dennis Hearst and David Viani did an outstanding job. They guided the building selection, gleaning from us our true needs and wants then negotiated the very best lease that a tenant could ask for. They stayed involved during the build out process and the move-in. When the economy stalled we had to downsize, they helped us to find a tenant and helped us negotiate a lease from the other side.
Novatel Wireless | C. Ross, Senior Vice President, Operations
These guys [Dennis Hearst and David Viani] saved us money.
Commonwealth Packaging Company | Mark Maisel, Chief Executive Officer
I must share how impressed we were dealing with Mike Bench during our visit to San Diego several weeks ago. Mike immediately perceived our needs and showed us a comprehensive sampling of offices and warehouse. His follow up was excellent and we ended up with a better deal than envisioned. I would recommend Mike to anyone looking for commercial property in the San Diego area.
