that size enjoyed explosive sales … but less than stel- lar financial strength. These companies can be categorized in the “e-commerce” industry, and these statistics have given property owners rea- son for concern. In the event that a tenant experiences a business downturn, secur- ing a lease becomes more problematic. Overall, unless there is an unforeseen, negative change in the economic or geopo- litical arena, we project 2020 as another banner year for

rent. Replacement costs are less than usual, leading own- ers and investors to reposi- tion these acquisitions with that creative new office de- signs very much in demand by today’s tenants. A success- ful office landlord now oper- ates more like a “hotel with concierge service,” offering tenants nothing but the best. • Medical Office Space Within this category, we find individual practitioners, medical groups, specialized services (surgery centers) and emergency centers (re- tail). Although there are transactions taking place, the turnaround isn’t of the same frequency or eagerness as pre-Affordable Care Act, and 2020 will likely con- tinue this trend. There are many dynamics that come into play when negotiating a transaction with members of this group. We believe that, aside from the most important dynamic – which is location – it’s the willing- ness of an owner to devote the time, energy, and money to secure these clients and, in return, the outcome can be a long-term tenant with better- than-average credit. We Strongly believe 2020 will continue the positive momentum of 2019 and look forward to servicing our cli- ents to get their best possible outcome.

property to purchase, and the unprecedented demand will continue. Leasing, on the other hand, appears to be bifurcated. Lease demand for state-of-the-art / best-in- class distribution facilities larger than 100,000 s/f and along major trucking routes is strong…but those without these strong points won’t fare as well. During 2019, buildings be- tween 5,000 and 100,000 s/f in size took up to 12months to lease, and companies whose operations where in space of

With the economy hold- ing strong, company owners are taking advantage of the low demand for office space. Low mortgage rates and an abundance of office proper- ties available for sale or lease have led to a renewed inter- est from investors looking to purchase office properties.
