Get a remarkably better workspace and lease terms with less effort.

The Space Place represents tenants who want to improve their office spaces and the terms of their leases, without the usually painful search and negotiation hassles that pull them away from their primary jobs.

We only represent tenants.

We never represent landlords. So we’re not conflicted about who we’re fighting for and protecting. After all, would you hire a law firm that also represented the other side of a deal?

Get a real-world estimate of your total space requirements before you search for space. The calculator’s development was built on The Space Place’s 30 years of experience.

If any of these are true, we should talk.

  • You’re overpaying for your office space
  • You’re personally liable for a lease
  • There’s little or no TI/space improvement budget
  • Your lease is up within the next 24-36 months
  • Leasing is new to you
  • Your last broker didn’t protect you very well
  • You feel like a better deal was definitely possible
  • You don’t have enough space or you have too much space

“Dan knows the marketplace, and, perhaps more importantly, the landlords know that he knows.” E. Gerard Mannion Principal Mannion Lowe & Oksenendler Full Client Letter

Why does 30 years of experience matter?

We’ve worked through multiple business booms and crashes. So we know how to get our clients deals that are good for them, good for their business and good through whatever comes down the road.  We are intimately familiar with Bay Area landlords. Our industry network often gives us an unfair advantage over our competitors. Landlords know about us too, and that we know how they think and operate. This can save weeks or months of time and serious money.

We’ve developed proprietary methods and tools to deliver remarkable deals. Our lease assessment service uncovers issues and opportunities for better economics and to better protect yourselves from inevitable surprises. Our unique software helps you understand and plan for your current needs, and 5 years ahead! It makes the process transparent for you from the first step, to generating a Letter of Intent to final acceptance and simplifying the legal work required.

During the months of arduous searching for the right place for us, you were unfailingly helpful, courteous, and informative. Your poise ‘under fire’ was nothing short of remarkable. Clearly, you are exceedingly knowledgeable in your field.” Ron Rouda Partner Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn Full Client Letter
