Office space for lease in Calgary remains a challenge to find, especially on short notice.  For large requirements and needs a few months away we are usually able to find a suitable range of qualifying options to help our clients weigh competing options and enter into a competitive negotiation.

On the other hand, if the requirement is small or more immediate - the options are often fewer, the spectrum of choice is often limited and competition can often be fierce.  Our objective in representing clients is to negotiate effectively in their best interest without caving to landlord demands. This is not so much science as it is a melding of experience, market knowledge and relationships.
