That's the Sidecar Mission:

SHARE responsibility and success within our team, and with our clients and communities
CARE for each other through support, collaboration, and continuous improvement
BE FAIR to every colleague, client, competitor, and person with whom we interact

Representing users/occupiers of corporate office- and industrial space, we provide local, face-to-face representation supported by a global team of experts. We ensure our Advisors have the best technology, tools, strategies, and connections to take you from first contact through lifecycle management of your real estate portfolio.

Growth isn’t a destination, it’s a process and we’re here to help you strategize for the journey ahead. We anticipate business trends, monitor and measure their impact, and help you align your corporate real estate footprint with your companies’ operational, financial, and productivity goals.

Our Services Include

Our Advisors work closely with you to understand your organization’s operational, financial and productivity goals, and analyze your real estate footprint. We then develop a master plan including space strategies to help align your real estate to your goals, and accomplish this over time through acquisitions, dispositions, renewals, expansions and more. The outcome is an optimized, flexible portfolio that enhances your business and minimizes occupancy costs.

With access to leading market-, industry-, property- and GIS research and data, our team provides you with the right intelligence to support your business goals. We generate and work with you to analyze demographic information, market reports, market surveys with property listings of comparable sold or leased properties, GIS mapping, void-, comparative- and suitability analysis and more, to help you to make the best real estate decisions.

Combining market-, client- and project specific data with our financial analysis capabilities, Sidecar CRE helps you make the best real estate decisions for your needs and goals. For users/occupants, we provide comparative lease, lease vs. purchase, continue-to-own versus sell & leaseback and risk analyses. For investors, we provide investment analysis and cash flow modeling to support your acquisition, hold, refinance and disposition decisions.

Working closely with you, we evaluate your current and future talent needs to align your space(s) and real estate portfolio. For acquisitions, we coordinate and collaborate with space planners, architects, engineers, general contractors and construction managers to ensure that your location, site and space meets your goals.

The Sidecar team functions as your in-house real estate department, organizing and managing administration of your owned and leased portfolio. With industry-leading technology, we manage contracts, critical dates, perform lease audits to identify overcharges of operating expenses, recover any overpayments and more, so that you can focus on meeting your business goals.

With our focus on users of office and industrial space, we are on the Tenant’s and Owner-Occupant’s side. We know your business, goals and needs, and we optimize your real estate footprint via strategic acquisitions and dispositions. Potential conflicts of interest are avoided in instances where one firm represents both tenants and landlords. This focus allows us to identify unique opportunities and negotiate the best terms and conditions for your real estate locations.

Using our Market Research and Analysis expertise, combined with leading technology solutions, we can identify, evaluate and compare geographic areas and markets to help you select the best location(s) for your business now and in the future. Demographics, infrastructure, zoning and master planning, growth and development trends, and more are considered to ensure that your next location is a productive asset.

When relocating or expanding your business to a new location, the economic development that your business creates attracts incentives to ensure success and maximize benefit to the community. We help you identify, negotiate and secure incentives at local, regional, state and even federal levels. These reduce your initial investment costs and on-going costs of occupancy, increasing your return on investment. Incentives can include training grants, foreign trade zone designation, freeport exemptions, infrastructure incentives, tax abatements, tax incremental finance, Enterprise and Opportunity funds and more.

Sidecar Advisors learn about your business goals and needs and take an analytical and qualitative approach to identify the best location for your business operation. A critical component of your corporate strategy, Site Selection has short and long-term impact on operating costs, supply chain, labor force, and tax structure. It is so much more than just a location!

We use our training, technologies, process and understanding of your business goals to advise and lead you through the entire brokerage process of purchasing, leasing or disposing of real estate. We research, identify, negotiate and secure the best space for your business at the best terms, managing the process and transaction on your behalf.
