Tenants

The worst kept secret in real estate is the tension between Landlord and Tenant. This tension originates from the fact that in commercial real estate, these two parties have diametrically opposed interests. In simple terms, the challenges encountered by each are:

Landlord
  1. Looks to optimize revenue by charging the highest price per square foot in base rent.
  2. Looks to optimize revenue by charging the highest price per square foot in operating income.
  3. Tries to drive the greatest profit within his/her portfolio.
  4. Attempts to spend the least amount of money in and on the property.
Tenant
  1. Looks to achieve the lowest price per square foot in base rent.
  2. Looks to achieve the lowest price per square foot in operating costs. 
  3. Looks to drive the lowest portion of their operating costs against rental expense.
  4. Expects to have creature comforts and aesthetically pleasing environments.

Lets play with this idea

  1. Has your landlord ever saved your company?
  2. Has your Landlord ever negotiated your rate down temporarily when your company was  experiencing unforeseen financial challenges?
  3. When was the last time your Landlord took you out for dinner and asked about your business?
  4. When was the last time you ever referred a landlord to another entrepreneur?

We can go on, but we think that you get the picture...

Here is how ASI looks at things:

The Entrepreneurs who are the business owners who lease space from us are not looked at as Tenants in the traditional sense of the word. They are looked at as our business partners.

ASI is about creating a Real Estate Brand for our coveted tenant partners. The Questions noted above are what you, as a Tenant, should expect from us as your future Landlord Partner.

Please call ASI to learn more at 403-266-5000 extension 208 and ask for Monika Blachut or email her directly at [email protected]

“At ASI, we are committed to our Tenants needs. We want to be both loved and respected by our valued Tenants”
