How To... in Atlanta>Question Details

Robert, Other/Just Looking in Atlanta, GA

I have a growing non profit that is seeking around 10,000-15,000 square feet.

Asked by Robert, Atlanta, GA Thu Apr 9, 2009

We need at least 10,000 sf. open and the rest for office space. Maybe a warehouse/office combo. It needs to be near public transportation, not too "hard core industrial" and kid friendly. We operate something similar to a dance, karate or cheerleading/gymnastics school. Looking primarily in the DeKalb/Atlanta area. But open to Clayton possibly. Yes, being a non profit we seek something affordable. Any options?

Good answer Josh. I was going to say the same. An agent will best be able to help you. It doesn't have to be someone who specializes in commercial, just one who has some experience and has access to that information. I wrote a commercial lease last week and negotiated a fantastic deal for my clients. You should be able to find something that fits your needs, but "affordable" is relative. Give me a call and I will see what is out there for you if that would be of interest. I know what it's like running a non-profit, I used to run one myself, that's why I'm now in real estate :-). Good luck and call me today if I can help you.

Seek out a commercial real estate agent like Robert McBride at 770-495-1859. He can give you all the properties that are available and help you negotiate a great deal, one that utilizes your non-profit status (which can be very beneficial).

Unlike residential, commercial properties are not thrown up all over the internet and therefore require a higher degree of expertise.

Good luck!
