Become a St. Louis Commercial Real Estate Success Story

Hilliker Corporation Commercial Real Estate St. Louis ManagementCommercial Real Estate (CRE) owners can potentially create a lifetime’s worth of passive income. Those who own CRE can be confident they possess something of true value. Even in an increasingly digital world, many businesses still need—and will always need—a brick-and-mortar home.

This is why CRE is such a smart investment. Commercial property provides a useful service to others while the investor gets to build equity by leveraging someone else’s money.

If your property also houses your business, that means you’ve stopped giving your rent money to someone else. Now, you’re contributing to your bottom line and diversifying your risk.

That’s a powerful position to be in.

And St. Louis’s property owners maintain that position by partnering with a Hilliker Corporation broker.

 

Fill Your Building with Creditworthy Tenants

Hilliker Corporation Commercial Real Estate St. Louis ManagementLife as a CRE owner is at its best when every space is leased-up. But even the best tenants move on from time to time. When they do, you need someone actively looking on your behalf to match potential businesses to your space.

At Hilliker Corporation, that’s what we do every day. All of our brokers have clients actively looking for leases. Potential tenants seek us out as much as we seek them out.

Additionally, we have established relationships with commercial brokerages and businesses throughout the St. Louis area. We stay in touch. We keep an ear to the ground. This is work we’re passionate about, and we don’t let opportunities pass.

 

We also market your space aggressively:

  • Entrepreneurs look for—and trust—the “Big Red H” sign, which we post prominently at your building.
  • We use all available property listing sites, including our custom Property Search Page.
  • People who Google “Commercial Real Estate Property in St. Louis” consistently find Hilliker.com in the top five search results.
  • From open-houses and showings to digital marketing, we use both time-tested and up-to-the-minute tactics to get the word out.

We’ll serve as your consultant as you prepare your leasable space for visits from potential tenants. We’ll also let you know what not to do so you can make every dollar count.

Then, when someone becomes interested in your property, we can help you find out whether or not they’re creditworthy. After all, you’ll be entering into a contract with that business. You don’t have to rely on your intuition. We’ll do a complete financial analysis and let you know who a great partner will be for years to come.

Negotiate the Lease

Leases aren’t one-size-fits-all. Each property and tenant pairing requires a different strategy. As you and a potential tenant negotiate the contract, we’ll guide you through the process:

  • Determining what lease type is best: full-service; gross or modified; single-, double-, or triple-net.
  • Negotiating the terms of the lease, such as who will pay taxes, insurance, and repairs.
  • Deciding how to split renovation or build-out expenses.

When we speak on your behalf and guide your decisions, we keep your reputation in mind. You’ll be entering into an agreement that can last many years. When the back-and-forth is over, we want you to have a solid foundation for your working relationship. The final contract should be clear and equitable.

That’s how we like to do business.

The Next Step in Your Real Estate Life Cycle

There may come a time when it no longer makes sense to hold on to your property (learn more here). At Hilliker Corporation, we can help you recognize that moment. We’ll work to find a serious buyer, then set you up for a successful next step:

  • 1031 and Reverse 1031 Exchanges to defer taxes while you trade-up.
  • Finding properties that make sense for you and your goals.
  • Creating an action plan that will make your next investment just as successful — or even more successful — than the first.

Whether this is your first investment, or you’ve been at it for years, we’re here for the long haul. If you’re ready to work with a consultant that knows Commercial Real Estate and keeps your best interests at heart, call Hilliker: The Entrepreneur’s Choice.
