OfficeSpace.com knows a change in commercial real estate technology is coming— in fact, they’ve known and are readying to launch their free broker and landlord-to-tenant service in its second market.
After its successful beta launch reaching 24,000 tenants, connecting 350 tenants to brokers and landlords and covering 186 million square feet of space in Portland, Ore. OfficeSpace.com officially launches its new service, starting with Denver, Colo. on June 13.
“As an entrepreneur, finding the right space was always more difficult that I anticipated,” CEO and Founder Susie Algard said. “The system of waiting for someone to call you back just to give you the space details or rate information is highly inefficient. All of the tools were focused on people who were familiar with commercial real estate, not for people who only need to find space once every few years.”
In Denver, OfficeSpace.com currently covers over 172 million square feet of space and over 3,000 buildings available for tenants to search.
The days of expensive broker-to-broker subscription services are behind.
“By providing open access to details on an office space, we are helping all business owners during their research phase,” Algard said. “In particular, we are serving an audience whose needs are currently not sufficiently met – small business owners. It’s difficult for brokers to make small requirements profitable, but we have created tools to help them directly with that. We connect qualified tenants to brokers for free.”
OfficeSpace.com’s website offers free viewings and listings and social media tools for sharing. The company most recently launched a free Broker Tools suite for brokers to create flyers, surveys and communicate with tenants. It also features photo-friendly interface and information on the confusing aspects of a lease for tenants.
OfficeSpace.com is a start up with the goal of creating an efficient marketplace connecting tenants with landlords and brokers. The company, purchased by Internet entrepreneurs Susie and Alex Algard, launched it’s new beta service launched in Portland in January 2012 and to date, has serviced over 350 tenants looking for space. OfficeSpace.com also operates one of the leading commercial real estate marketing and analytics services in Seattle, Spokane, Denver, Minneapolis, Cincinnati and Columbus and can be found at www.officespace.com.
