The Axiant Group provides advisory and transaction management services exclusively to users of real estate that either own or lease properties to conduct business. By representing only corporate and professional users of real estate, we eliminate all conflicts of interest with landlords.
The Axiant Group is a premier commercial real estate firm devoted exclusively to the representation of tenants. We work with tenants of all sizes, and from all industry groups. We represent clients directly in the San Francisco Bay Area, in cities throughout the United States, as well as internationally.
For clients with large portfolios, we provide assistance with portfolio analysis, strategic planning, location analysis, acquisitions and dispositions, and restructuring of existing leases. For clients with single project or transaction specific needs, we provide solutions to a variety of office leasing issues including: leasing of new space, negotiating an extension, expansion or contraction; restructuring an existing lease (i.e., blend and extend), subleasing surplus space, negotiating an early lease termination, or any combination of the foregoing.

Our clientele consists of mainly locally based professional firms ranging from 3,000 to 30,000 square feet in size.

Much of our business is repeat business, with clients we have represented for years. This speaks well for the level of service we provide.
There are many factors that play into a specific recommendation. The following are general lead time recommendations for a relocation based on square footage:
Under 5,000 SF - at least 6 months prior to expiration.
5,000 to 10,000 SF - 6 to 12 months prior to expiration.
10,000 to 20,000 SF - 9 to 15 months prior to expiration.
20,000 to 50,000 SF - 12 to 18 months prior to expiration.
Over 100,000 SF - several years prior to expiration.
Similar lead times would apply to renewals, keeping in mind that developing viable space options would be used as leverage.
You'll want to seek advice if you plan to expand or contract your space needs, or wish to explore ways to more efficiently use your space. Other reasons include a desire to explore the purchase of a building for your business, or that you plan to acquire a business where lease valuation and analysis is required.
