A successful real estate strategy goes beyond finding space. Our professionals uncover opportunities for your Portland-area business to reduce real estate risk, save costs, improve productivity and set the foundation for continued success.

We help corporate real estate professionals and business leaders in Portland change their perspectives by looking at the true cost of occupancy, rather than just the cost of space. This enables businesses to gather meaningful data about their total commercial real estate (CRE) spend, and save costs through more strategic real estate planning and management.
