Our Approach & Expertise
We act as an extension of our clients, not as a traditional intermediary-broker.
A broker's stock in trade is the control of information between landlords and tenants; our approach is open book, working closely with and for clients. The better informed our clients are and the closer our collaboration is, the better the transaction is that's produced.
We do not have any conflicts of interests, period.
We do not represent landlords, we do not represent competing tenants, we do not represent tenants competing for like spaces.
Principals of Byrnam Wood hold all the meaningful professional designations in our field.
We are longtime members of the Counselors of Real Estate (CRE), the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR), the National Association of Realtors (NAR), and we are Fellows of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (FRICS).
We are known for negotiating aggressive, creative favorable deals for clients, with a maximum amount of strategic flexibility.
One hallmark of our deals is a complex set of options that afford clients control over occupancy costs regardless of market and economic conditions.
We never try to fit client needs to a pre-determined "Byrnam Wood" approach.
Every assignment determines the team, analyses, objectives, and constraints that we field. Every assignment warrants a bespoke approach.
Unlike virtually all other firms, each of our principals handles financial analyses for transactions we undertake.
This imparts a deeper understanding - and advantage - in structuring and negotiating transactions. We do not use canned programs that are typical in our industry; they tend to obscure facts and ways to structure deals advantageously.
We handle client assignments anywhere in the world and bring the clients central overview to bear upon lease interests anywhere.
Over the decades, our experience in other countries has informed and enlightened our feel for what we do everywhere. Whereas other firms hand off distant assignments to far-flung local outposts, we will take the time, make the trip, and get things done right.
