Kirk Smith at CBRE has a long track record representing both tenants and landlords.  Our tenant representation services are built on strategic development, build-to-suit planning, market analysis, occupancy analysis, brand impact and employee satisfaction.  We understand what motivates each side in a lease negotiation, and we get to know our client’s business and its goals. That information—paired with up-to-date real estate research, local market expertise and long-standing industry relationships—helps us develop an occupancy plan specific to your company that sets you above the rest
