Having the real estate team closely connected to our construction and property management groups offers a major advantage to our customers. Once we understand your business needs, and gather all of your requirements, we are able to present a full range of options – build, buy or lease – detailing the pros and cons of each. With First Companies, you have an ally who will help you navigate through leasing options, orchestrate tenant buy-outs, and evaluate ownership opportunities. Whether you’re a member of the brokerage community or looking at the market from a tenant or landlord perspective, we help connect people, buildings and solutions. We are known for our creative problem solving and ability to facilitate the best possible outcome for each client.
