Being different, being DeVono
We are award-winning commercial property advisors who only ever advise occupiers. Finding the right premises for you and your business and helping you dispose of any commercial property liabilities forms part of our tenant representation offering. However, we go about it in a radically different way.
In a market riddled with conflicts of interest and where loyalties are traditionally with landlords, we pioneered tenant only representation. It's why we don't work on behalf of landlords. Through our tenant representation agreement, our sole responsibility is to you, the occupier. It is because of our buyer representation we have no conflict of loyalties that we are able to achieve the most competitive terms for our clients.
It sounds simple, yet like all simple things it takes experience, expertise and determination like ours to get them right. That's why we consistently acquire more offices for businesses than any other property company in London.
We are the industry leaders in tenant representation, that's all and everything we do.
It's what makes us different.
Looking deeper, looking wider - with our tenant representation services
Tasked to find a property or with the aim of releasing existing liabilities, we start by listening and talking to you about what you want for your business and the people who are part of it. What you tell us becomes part of your detailed brief that will help us advise you clearly and accurately.
When the remit is to search and negotiate for new office space, we establish the search parameters, provide your business with a market overview as well as research and present all available office space. The brief goes to our unique and dedicated Research and Acquisitions team who locate, view and rigorously assess hundreds of buildings every week.
As the only property company with such a team, our knowledge of what's available within London, both on and off market is unrivalled. It is because of them that we can genuinely offer the widest coverage.
So when your brief comes in, we don't need to get up to speed, we've already started.
A complete tenant representation service, a full answer
We have a proven track record of finding and disposing of offices for our clients. However, identifying the right building, or finding an occupier to replace you within your existing premises, is simply the start of the process. Securing the right terms to match has a profound and long-term effect on your business.
Our focus is to achieve the best possible package of costs, conditions and protection for you. All of these negotiations are entirely transparent because we work closely with you during this process.
Once terms have been agreed, we pride ourselves on our management of the conveyancing process in tandem with your solicitor, so that you are able to conclude the transaction swiftly and successfully.
It's only when the lease is signed and you've moved in that we consider our job complete.
An investment, not a cost
Any decision you make when moving offices will result in significant costs and liabilities for your business. On average there are in excess of 23 separate areas of negotiation to consider, regardless of the size of the property. Any area not addressed will work against you and your business.
Acting in your interest only is where our commercial tenant representation services become an investment, not a cost.
