TheSquareFoot enables businesses to search and find the ideal space for their business, while landlords and agents get an incredible place to show off their properties. TheSquareFoot was founded in 2010 in Houston, Texas.
Seeing many business owners and entrepreneurs struggle through the commercial real estate leasing process made us think, "there has to be a better way." We say that a lot around here because the search for the right space has so many inefficiencies, that every step can become stressful. Our goal is to solve that, so we push every day to ensure your experience of finding space for your business is both easy and enjoyable.
We'd love to hear from you. Are you a prospective tenant or property owner? Drop us a note and let us know how we can help.
