About Us

WE ARE INSPIRED BY THE RESULTS WE ACHIEVE FOR OUR CLIENTS…

Your Leasing Co

OUR STORY

From our experience, we have learned that business operators strive to be technical experts in their given profession or industry. Every business owner is confronted with the decision of stealing time from their core business in an attempt to try and stretch across all other non-core activities, including the commercial leasing and property strategy. An alternative is to consider teaming up with a professional service advisor that is an expert in that area of business specialisation, such as Your Leasing Co..

 

We recognise that there is a significant imbalance of power between a landlord and a tenant. Primarily because the landlord is a specialist in leasing their own assets, this is their core business. To compound matters, more often than not, they increase that advantage by employing an industry expert, a commercial leasing agent.

 

Your Leasing Co. provides business owners with the resources to form a close working relationship with our commercial leasing and property experts that will shift the power advantage into their favour.

 

With 20+ years of commercial leasing, property and business advisory experience we are able to achieve results that continually exceed our clients expectations. Why, because this is our core business and we know what it takes to engineer the outcome that our clients should achieve in any market conditions.

OUR POINT OF DIFFERENCE… AND YOUR ADVANTAGE

When you decide to work with Your Leasing Co., you are getting more than tenant representation and expert leasing services. Our firm also has a strong background in business advisory, spanning growth strategy, raising private equity and debt funding, strategic direction, profit centre analysis to cashflow management.

 

So, we understand business and the key role that the property strategy plays in the ultimate success of any organisation.

 

It’s critical to ensure that the property selection criteria has been worked out and that you are moving into the right space and in the right location. The property’s location, position and lease is going to be the foundation for implementing the businesses strategic objectives for the next 3-5 years and beyond.

 

These objectives will include maximising the potential for profit, supported by the business locations ability to positively impact the service to clients, attract and retain high quality employees, maximise productivity and provide a base to develop a strong organisational culture for whatever your industry or profession might be.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

We are continually inspired by the feedback that we receive when we have negotiated an amazing result for a tenant, our clients … this is our inspiration to continue making a meaningful difference to our client’s businesses and making their lives a little easier.

 

Examples of inspiration:

      1. Where we have found a great site for a business that fits all the businesses operational requirements necessary to set a fire under their revenue and profit targets.
      2. Where we have found the perfect short list of potential new locations at a great rent and very attractive landlord incentives and our client is spoilt for choice in choosing the best option.
      3. Where we have stepped in to shield the business owner and take away the added stress of understanding the relief available to businesses impacted by COVID-19.
      4. Where we have undertaken the financial modelling, applied the COVID-19 legislation and negotiated with the landlord directly to reach a great outcome for our clients.
      5. Where we have used market research and intelligence to negotiate a revised market rent at renewal to save our clients’ a substantial amount of money and allow them to stay in the existing location where they have built a strong base of customer goodwill.

We provide our services to commercial tenants, specifically designed to flatten the landlord / tenant power imbalance.

 

Working with Your Leasing Co. will give you a competitive edge and let you focus your time on where it’s most valuable to you, your business. We typically step in and take over the communications with the landlord on your behalf and we ask those “difficult to ask questions” every day.

 

Our strengths are focussed around providing confidence through expert market knowledge and informed negotiation with the landlord on your behalf, to secure the best possible premises that fits the business needs. This is packaged with the right combination of savings in rent, added value through landlord incentives and optimal lease terms.

 

We are continually Inspired by the feedback we receive from our clients … this is our inspiration to continue making a meaningful difference to our client’s businesses and making their lives a little easier.
