SMC's highest priorities. The management team maintains positive relationships
with tenants by meeting with them, reviewing their needs, and responding
quickly and efficiently to their service requests. Following the completion
of services, SMC contacts tenants to confirm their satisfaction.
To help assure lease renewals, SMC negotiates directly with tenants and may begin negotiations up to one year in advance of lease expiration. Often, SMC's expertise in the market, together with the tenant relationships it has cultivated, eliminates the need for independent brokers and can save thousands of dollars in commissions. Both tenants and property owners benefit from SMC's ability to negotiate all aspects of a lease.
