Why use Optimal to buy?

Don’t buy what other people are selling. Get a buyers broker/tenant broker to represent you to make sure you get the best deal possible.
We will find hidden buildings coops and condo for sale that are not actively on the market. Most of our transactions were never listed.
  1. We also take the time to go through all of the potential options and find what will work best for you.
  2. We will negotiate your deal terms. Unless you’ve done an immense amount of research you will not know or be qualified to make evaluations on the pricing. Tenant brokers add value to the deal by having the knowledge of the intricacies of the market that may affect any of the terms in a lease. Negotiating a lease takes weeks but by leveraging our rolodex we can help you find all the professionals you need to make the process as painless as possible.
  3. Most brokers represent the landlord, not the buyer. Most boker represent the landlord and are simply trying to get the highest price. Tenant brokers purely work for you.
  4. We have done this for 30+ years. Our ability to spot deals has been truly honed over this period, especially compared to most brokers who have been in the business on average for only 5-10 years. We are experts in the field.
  5. Optimal Spaces we have been producing a monthly newsletter for 10+ years. The newsletter allows for someone who is a novice in the field of commercial real estate to quickly read 12 pages and well aware of what is going on in the constantly changing industry. The newsletter breaks down the changes across the different types of space one could desire within NYC which includes office, retail, and industrial space.
