You may have just signed a new lease, renewed an old lease, bought or sold a building last year and are saying to yourself “I don’t need to worry about any real estate decisions this year.” Or you may be saying to yourself, “I need to make one or more real estate decisions this year, and I don’t know where to start.” Whether you fall into the first or the second category, or are somewhere in the middle, there are considerations to be made regularly to maximize the performance of your real estate.

Christopher J. Destino of the Destino Industrial Team within Lee & Associates is pleased to announce the sale of the 24,000 sf Industrial building located at 16450 Phoebe Avenue, La Mirada CA for $4,800,000 ($200 psf). The Property features prominent freeway visibility along the I-5 at the border of Los Angeles and Orange County. The property was sold by a local investor who intends to execute a 1031 Exchange and deploy his capital proceeds in another state besides California. Taxation, business climate and market dynamics all played pivotal roles in the Seller's decision.
The Buyer, Blackcrow Industries, intends to renovate the 1964 concrete tilt-up industrial building for his electrical equipment manufacturing business.
Christopher Destino of the Destino Industrial Team at Lee & Associates represented AmorePacific US, Inc. in the leasing of the 111,679 SF Industrial building at 3300 E. Birch Street in Brea California.
The relocation from Corona to Brea provided AmorePacific with nearly double the warehouse capacity, an improved employee pool, more efficient transportation and delivery service options, and reduced drayage costs.
3300 E Birch St. is a modern 2017 Construction concrete tilt-up industrial building with 32' ceiling clearance, a concrete truck court and ESFR sprinklers.
The Destino Industrial Team also represented Danne Montague-King Company ("DMK") in their acquisition of a 30,036 SF Industrial/Flex building located at 10420 Pioneer Blvd. in Santa Fe Springs.
Christopher represented DMK in their previous lease, and they had long sought an opportunity to purchase a property for their stable and growing business. After years of searching the ideal property became available at the right time, and the Team quickly focused and secured the deal with and for our client.
Making a real estate decision can be an exciting time, especially in today’s market. For Buyers/Tenants, there are opportunities that a new facility provides, such as a better location, improved amenities, or utilizing a more efficient layout. Selling or renting an owned property can dramatically improve your cash flow situation. In today’s market there are other factors that must also be taken into consideration when deciding on renting, buying, or selling. Let’s briefly look at three (3) considerations when evaluating your decision.
In most situations, renewing a lease should be relatively easy for a tenant who is in good standing with the landlord’s lease terms and is comfortable with his own financial position. But in this market, “easy” is a relative term. For example, if you are willing to pay market rents and to accept the landlord’s terms, it will be “easy” to sign the renewal letter. However, if you are seeking some concessions in the rent or terms of the lease, “easy” will not be the first word that comes to mind. The landlord may dig in his heels and the tenant may feel that all the goodwill he built up as a quality tenant has not translated into any benefit. This might be similar to negotiating with your cell phone provider after being a “valued customer” for twenty years: you discover that they treat you about the same as a “new customer”…or worse!
If you are faced with this situation..........
Are you busy getting to the next project, going to the next place, making the next deal, getting the answer you were waiting for, driving to and from activities, and on and on? How can we appropriately weave in “waiting” for anything? Well, just wait and we will tell you… But seriously, when you are involved in industrial real estate transactions, there is a time for action and a time for waiting, and knowing which is which can make all the difference.
In today’s blog we will go over a few common scenarios and explore where waiting comes into play.

Destino of Lee & Associates Commercial Real Estate Services is pleased to announce the completion of this 2018 Brand New Construction concrete tilt up industrial building in the city of Santa Fe Springs, CA. Christopher represented the Buyer in the sale transaction valued at nearly $3,000,000.

In today’s market with about a 1% vacancy rate and high demand, landlords (and sellers) of industrial warehouse space find themselves in a very desirable position. How do those conditions play out in negotiations? How can a potential tenant or buyer understand these dynamics best to help win them the deal?
Landlords and sellers are looking for three things:
(a) Best price & terms,
(b) Most convenient & timely transaction, and
(c) Confidence in the tenant’s or buyer’s ability to perform.
Therefore, tenants and buyers must be prepared to demonstrate their strength in the following areas:
