Client Success Stories


Every Client has different parameters and similar needs. Lease rates, location, tenant improvements and more play into the decision process. Whether it is an office, office condo or warehouse property every deal is a bit different. Here are some great examples of successful transactions achieved with Clients that leased or purchased a commercial property in Austin using Shire Commercial.

Office Condo Purchase

  • Square Footage: 1,231
  • Closing Price: $181,000
  • Client Type: Buyer-Owner
  • Time to Complete: 45 Days

The buyer was represented by Shire Commercial and the seller was represented by another commercial real estate agent. The office condo had a Class A finish and was located on Jollyville Road, the office condo park was well maintained and the buyer wanted something that was location specific along with good amenities.

Office Lease

  • Square Footage: 3,286
  • Lease Rate: $17.50 per year
  • Client Type: Merchant Services
  • Time to Complete: 60 Days
  • Lease Term: 3 years

The tenant required a space that was a top priority with location, covered parking, and a better rate than the general surrounding market. The finish out of the space was fairly extensive and Shire Commercial successfully helped the tenant re-configure the space and negotiate rent concessions along with improvements from the landlord.

Warehouse Lease

  • Square Footage: 4,869
  • Lease Rate: $0.65/mo
  • Client Type: Martial Arts
  • Time to Complete: 30 Days

This tenant saved over $4,000 per month moving from their high rent retail location to a location within close vicinity of their original place of business. Flex Warehouse space can be a nice cost savings for businesses that requre an office and open area environment. Flex Warehouse space is leased at a higher rate than standard warehouse properties.

Warehouse Purchase

  • Square Footage: 6,260
  • Closing Price: $365,000
  • Client Type: Buyer-Owner
  • Time to Complete: 3 Months

This purchase required creativity and an outside of the box approach because the Buyer-Owner could not obtain direct financing right away due to the lender’s criteria in underwriting. Shire Commercial provided an interim financing solution that allowed the Buyer to occupy the warehouse property for 18 months while the business financing issues cleared with time. Permanent financing was completed and the full sale of the property occured in August of 2013.

Warehouse Lease

This tenant had a unique set of challenges, one of them was to be able to park an 18 wheeler that transported their race cars to the race car tracks. They needed it hidden or preferably fenced, Shire Commercial was able to help them negotiate a lease term for 3 years along with finding them an area large enough to accommodate the transport vehicle.

Office Lease

  • Term 2 years
  • Furnished office space

  • Time to Complete: 60 Days

This property was a super find for a Buyer-Owner that needed to be between San Antonio and the Austin area. They were originally looking to lease a warehouse space.
