What our clients are saying
Walter was highly effective and creative when it came to structuring our corporate headquarters lease. He initially helped us secure a 28,000-square-foot sublease that included a cash contribution we used to cover our relocation costs and purchase new furniture.

When the sublease term expired, he helped us negotiate a direct lease that not only offered attractive economics but flexibility in terms of expansion, renewal and termination rights. When we made the decision to design, build and occupy our own facility, we turned to Walter to assist in the proper lease termination procedure, as well as to help us with the economics associated with our new building.

Tim Reedy, CEO | Arquitectonica International Corporation
Walter negotiated two lease transactions for our firm. The first was a renewal with our existing building in which we were able to achieve an aggressive rental rate plus tenant improvement dollars to create a new more efficient space.

During the process he identified an over billing of operating expenses by the landlord and was able to craft a favorable solution. The second transaction was very creative in which we relocated mid-term into a more desirable submarket and better building that was owned by our existing landlord. This upgrade allowed us to occupy an entire floor, and the landlord paid a turn-key build-out including moving expenses.”

Julio E. Alvarez P.E., President | Wolfberg Alvarez & Partners

Walter effectively secured a subtenant for my excess office space on Brickell Avenue, Miami, FL. The space had a unique layout that was specific for a staffing company and not the most efficient for the typical user on Brickell Avenue.

Through his market intelligence and direct marketing he was able to identify and secure a credit-worthy user who found value in the existing improvements and took the space in As-Is condition within a short period of time. It was a pleasure to work with him as he made recommendations and guided SNI Companies through the process to an innovative solution.
