A few of John's transactions from the past 12 months appear below. Please be patient with this section... it's very much under construction as he works to build his blog while managing ongoing client needs!

Tenant Representation
Sample 1:  Represented a globally-recognized gaming company in a 40,000 SF office lease.  This transaction involved an extremely intensive search, engagements with state and local tax and economic development experts, a multi-floor building renovation, and significant legal negotiations.  While the details of the contract cannot be disclosed, we can report that the client is very satisfied with their arrangment!

Sample 2:  Represented an Atlanta-based financial services organization that does business in 18 states. This was a 25,000 SF complex sublease transaction involving significant monthly rents, a large amount of personal property, and construction modifications. The client has since engaged John to represent them nationally.

Sample 3:  Represented a startup division of an established Canadian software company as they established their first office in the United States.  This was a 10,000 SF sublease involving technology infrastructure assessments, personal property transfers, and a direct lease that begins with the expiration of the sublease term.

Sample 4:  Represented a healthcare tenant in a 22,000 SF free-standing office lease in the Atlanta suburbs. This same tenant engaged John in this lease after seeing what John was able to accomplish in a 5,000 SF retail transaction on their behalf elsewhere.

Landlord Representation
Represent multiple office, light industrial, and medical property owners in lease transactions.  Sample properties include:
  • Multiple 10,000 SF sublease spaces in Class A office buildings
  • An 8,000 SF space in a single-story Class B office building.
  • An 11,000 SF, two-tenant light industrial building.
Buyer and Seller Representation
Experienced in working with both buyers and sellers through multiple millions of dollars worth of transactions... through some VERY tough markets for selling buildings.  Samples of completed sales include:
  • A 14,000 SF Flex building
  • A 14,000 SF office building
  • A 15,000 SF industrial building
  • A 6,000 SF shell-condition office building
  • A 35,000 SF office building, including a full projections for a gut-and-rebuild
