Western North Carolina is an exciting but nuanced market that doesn’t easily comply with national site selection techniques. Our real estate is punctuated by mountains, rivers, inconsistent public utilities, and a broad array of political stakeholders and land use controls. All of these sensitivities must be considered and addressed if your best interests are to be served…
KW Commercial is the commercial and investment real estate arm of Keller Williams Professionals Realty, the number one real estate company in the United States. Our Commercial Team consists of the most knowledgeable, results-driven brokers powered by stunningly innovative and scalable technology. We are committed to working creatively to get your commercial or investment real estate transaction accomplished as efficiently as possible and with the best outcome to you.
The market has continued to surge, and you may be surprised at the value of your real estate. We work with clients to reconcile list price using a number of techniques, and then utilize our best-in-class platforms to put your property in front of thousands of buyers regionally and nationally. Many clients have concerns about employees, tenants, or neighbors learning about their plans, so discretion and confidentiality is of the utmost importance in our business.
As capital investment attention increases in our region, Buyer guidance has only become more important. Our mission is to see both value and risk where others don’t, and guide you to a clean acquisition. KW Commercial’s full-service Buyer Representation services include inventory filtering, preliminary zoning / private use review, financial analysis, contract prep and negotiation, physical plant discovery, and transaction management.
Leasing - Landlord Representation
Likewise, the value of investment real estate is driven by the net revenue generated for the landlord. We are experts at consulting with property owners and determining the best possible use and marketing strategy for their vacant space. Complex negotiations are navigated, terms memorialized to paper, and transactions closed that simultaneously maximize landlord revenue alongside property value for refinance or sale.
Leasing - Tenant Representation
It often makes sense for a business to mitigate the amount of resources dedicated to real estate, and instead deploy working capital towards growing their business. This is where leasing comes in, and noone is better at Tenant Representation than KW Commercial.
