​In taking a business forward, any professional knows that a client's success can only be achieved with the support of the market it seeks to serve.  For JLL, the leading property consultant and real estate services provider in the Philippines, their work takes into account the interest of landlords – by also looking to represent lessees who are continuously looking for new havens for their ventures.

This process of being able to land for a tenant the right space at the right location and at a very competitive price is a service better left to the experts. Lizanne Tan, JLL Regional Director and Head of Tenant Representation explains: "This saves clients huge time and effort of scouting, sourcing and analyzing data of a property that best suits them.  Additionally, it saves them the push and pull that often happens when they start negotiating for the best possible terms.

As a complement, their years of expertise give them the upper hand in aiding tenants get the best deals possible.

Tan shares: "By hiring us, we can give our clients unbiased feedback on what their options are, based on what they require. We start off by drawing up a timeline for the project. We follow up by providing them an extensive market research and high level financial analysis so they can assess the pros and cons of each property they are eyeing.  We then, come up with a negotiation strategy to help them land the property that best fits their needs. We liaise with their legal counsel and stay on until they finally sign a contract of lease".

Apart from lease acquisition, JLL'S Tenant Representation team also oversees renewal and rent review, lease restructuring as well as lease disposal.
