TheSquareFoot was born in 2011 in Houston, Texas. Seeing business owners and entrepreneurs like ourselves struggle through the commercial real estate leasing process made us think there must be a better way. We say that a lot around here because searching for the right space today is so inefficient and can be such a pain.
TheSquareFoot makes commercial real estate leasing easier with our online platform for commercial real estate leasing. Tenants get an easy way to search and manage the process while landlords and their agents get a better way to market and manage their properties online. Some think it's about the search, it's not just about the search. It's a holistic approach that begins with educating the tenant, presenting them with space options, allowing them to connect directly with landlords or a pre-vetted TSF agent, and finally helping them find furniture, telecom equipment, commercial movers, and other providers to get their business ready for business.
You can probably tell how excited we are about what we think is a groundbreaking platform in the commercial real estate leasing business and we'd love to hear from you as well. Are you now a prospective tenant, or have you looked for space in the past? Drop us a note and tell us what you liked or disliked about the process. Are you a broker or landlord? Let us know what causes you pain and how you think the process could be streamlined.
When the process becomes easier for both sides of the transaction... everyone wins!
