Will Produce Your Best Results
Our Managing Principal, William Gary, MBA, MIM, has 38 years of valuable experience in Commercial Real Estate and has been a 100% Commercial Tenant Representative (Tenant Advisor) since 1995. Will says, “In commercial transactions, the Devil always is in the details. For Tenants and Owner-Occupants, MacLaurin Williams sweats the details to ensure that your projects get done correctly, affordably and on time.”
It looks so simple on your To Do List: renew your business lease, find new office space, rent a warehouse, lease flex space, buy an office or industrial building, purchase a commercial site, maybe with a low interest rate SBA 504 Loan. In reality, it often doesn’t happen quickly and, usually, it’s not so simple. That’s because Commercial Leases and Purchase Contracts are surprisingly complicated business agreements.
We are exclusive, 100% Tenant Representatives and 100% Buyer Representatives. We perform as true advocates and loyal, undivided fiduciaries for businesses, professional practices, non-profits and government agencies in commercial real estate transactions. Using the latest market research from CoStar and other sources, we unlock the leverage that’s needed to negotiate hard — but artfully — to secure the best economic terms and conditions for Office and Industrial Tenants and Owner-Occupants.
Typically, we save our Clients 10% to 25% off of Landlords’ asking rental rates and Sellers’ initial price quotes.
MacLaurin Williams Worldwide’s highly experienced, exclusive Tenant Reps, Tenant Agents and Tenant Brokers deliver professional advocacy services in Austin and Round Rock, Texas, and in Denver and Boulder, Colorado, as well as major US, Canadian and international markets. See the interactive Google map on our Global Offices page.
In North America, the Landlord or Seller typically pays our fee, not the Tenant or Buyer. Nevertheless, the Occupier is the but-for cause for all other parties to get paid in a Commercial Property transaction, including the Property Owner, the Owner’s Listing Agent and your 100% Tenant’s or Buyer’s Agent. We don’t work for free and would be happy to explain to you how it all works.
This means MacLaurin Williams doesn’t have the awful conflicts of interest that regular Commercial Real Estate Brokers quietly carry in their briefcases. It’s the dirty little secret they don’t want to talk about. But we clear the air here in our nationally ranked blog article, How to identify the best Commercial Tenant Agent.
