Commercial Leasing and Investment Sales
Our leasing and sales expertise comes from years of experience in representing landlords and tenants of all types throughout the Washington D.C., Metropolitan region. We have individually received numerous awards and recognition and have completed significant transactions throughout our careers.
Our agents are members of the elite Multi-Million Dollar Leasing and Sales Clubs, and are individually lifetime members of the Commercial Real Estate Brokerage Association (CREBA) formerly known as The Greater Washington Commercial Association of Realtors (GWCAR).
We are positioned to provide traditional leasing services, as well as “consultative analysis and representation.” We have assembled a talented group of professionals who are dedicated to servicing the client first, and utilizing their diverse backgrounds as a team.
Blake Real Estate Inc. has the people and ability to analyze property, interpret financial data and define market trends. It is imperative for both sellers and investors that a locally knowledgeable broker identify trends and discreetly accomplish an assignment.
We are proud of our local roots and experience, but also have national contacts and relationships which may be necessary to move along an opportunity. The difference at Blake is that we execute! We understand your business and utilize our real estate expertise on your behalf.
Retail real estate can be viewed as a specialty business which demands unique expertise and relationships. Our agents have direct contact with retailers and understand their requirements very well. We can provide clients with comprehensive services in leasing , management, shopping center sales, and site selection for retail properties. We maintain contact with national, regional and local retailers in order to anticipate their requirements and are active in the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) .
Industrial Leasing and Sales
As owners of an Industrial Park in Maryland, Blake has a valuable range of experience in the unique elements of leasing industrial buildings and land. Our team is very familiar with the many variables which will come into play for a user seeking warehouse, storage, production, and manufacturing spaces.
We can provide market studies on the benefits of each of the different DC industrial markets. There can be significant issues to consider for a user seeking a distribution or storage facility and we offer in-depth analysis of all the financial aspects of a proposed transaction. In concert with our construction team, we are then able to share the costs and benefits of each option for a client in the market for such industrial space.
Similar to retailers, the industrial tenant is usually looking at the demographics, road and travel patterns, distance to their clients, and many other factors, which will assist them in determining the right location for establishing their facility. It is quite often a combination of these factors together with the functionality of the building which will help determine the right answer. Blake is most capable in providing the tenant representation services that are necessary to see the entire picture.
