Client Spotlight: Revive Atlanta MD

Posted on: No Comments


We really enjoyed this project and working with Dr. Bindiya Gandhi. The Revive Atlanta MD office is not only beautiful, but also very efficient. IKEA cabinets and storage gives it a sleek look at an affordable price. Hand washing stations outside the rooms helped with the cost of the buildout. Dr. Bindiya is in a great location and the city of Decatur is excited to have her integrative and functional family medicine practice join their community! Read this great article featuring Revive Atlanta MD.

3 Healthcare Practice Resolutions

Posted on:

1. Develop an annual business plan and set goals.  Reflect on your overall vision for your practice. Think about where you are now, where you want to be by the end of the year, and what it will take to get you there. Build a 2018 business plan outlining your goals and the tasks you must complete to stay on track to meet them. Set your annual budget and be sure to include line items for marketing, equipment, staffing, etc.


2. Consider real estate options.  Your real estate costs amount to a huge chunk of money. There may be ways to optimize your current location to improve your bottom-line and help you meet your goals. If you own your building, consider possibilities for refinancing. If you are leasing your space, contemplate how it supports the vision of your practice. Is it too big…too small…out of date? Weigh all of your options. Based on your business plan, does it make sense to buy, renew your lease, relocate to a new space, add another office, or none of the above? Where are you in your lease term? If you are 12-18 months from lease expiration – it is time to take action!


3. Make time.  Now that you have a plan, make time to actually implement it. Institute monthly checks to ensure you are driving towards the goals of your practice. Acknowledge each milestone you reach and take a moment to celebrate your accomplishments.


We know there is barely enough time in the day to see all your patients, much less think about real estate. Contact Crown Tenant Advisors today for a complimentary lease review and start 2018 off right!

‘Tis the season for shopping!

Black Friday…Cyber Monday…’tis the season for shopping!

Screen Shot 2017-11-27 at 12.30.25 PM

Remember, when shopping for space for your new practice, DO NOT call landlords when you see a “For Lease” sign. We encourage you to drive an area to learn more about the location and get a feel for the demographics to determine if it lines up with your vision for your practice. Write down names and places you are interested in and give that information to your real estate advisor to let them handle the conversations and negotiations. Do not contact a landlord directly, as you could unknowingly convey information that may hurt you in the negotiation process should this be the space you want to pursue. Be sure to hire an advisor who will exclusively represent your interests as a tenant. Tenant only representation comes at NO COST to you, as they are compensated by the landlord, and offers you the best unbiased unconflicted advice to protect your interests. Happy Shopping!

We are THANKFUL for tailgates, touchdowns, and TESTIMONIALS! Thank you, Dr. Orza!

Jason Price of Crown Tenant Advisors did an excellent job negotiating our lease, and saved us quite a bit of money. We just purchased our first practice, and discovered we needed a significant amount of money for renovations. Initially, I tried to negotiate some concessions to the lease agreement directly with our property management company, but they were completely unwilling to work with us. Through Jason’s work, he negotiated several months rent free while we are under construction, along with money towards the project, and an additional amount in the form of a loan. Jason was invaluable to work with through this process, and I highly recommend him and Crown Tenant Advisors.

-Dr. Emil Orza, 1st Choice Dental Care – Historic Marietta


Crown Tenant Advisors Case Study: Existing Dental Practice Lease Restructure

Posted on:

See how Crown Tenant Advisors helped an existing dental practice restructure their lease and save over $69,000! This is just one example of why it’s best to use a “tenant only” real estate advisor when looking to renew and/or restructure your lease. You may have a great relationship with your Land­lord, but they are seeking the most amount of profit from your practice on the lease terms. This is a business transac­tion. It is advantageous to have a tenant advisor represent you during these negotiations. It doesn’t cost you anything and your interests are protected. Contact Crown Tenant Advisors today for your COMPLIMENTARY lease review.

In TN, call Ryan: 614-402-3952
In IN, call Billy: 317-289-8790

Crown Tenant Advisors Offers Complimentary Lease Reviews

Posted on:

A practice’s second highest fixed expense behind payroll is typically its LEASE or mortgage. This expense is also the most NEGOTIABLE.

Crown Tenant Advisors works EXCLUSIVELY with dental, medical and veterinary clients, so we understand the specific challenges you face and offer UNBIASED healthcare real estate advice at all times with absolutely NO conflict of interest.


FAQ: What is the difference between a listing agent & a tenant rep?

Posted on:

A listing agent is hired by the landlord to represent their interests in a transaction. A tenant rep is hired by the tenant to represent their interests. Some agents work exclusively on listing properties, others work exclusively with tenants, others represent both. If you are thinking about opening a practice, it is important to understand who is representing you exclusively to ensure your real estate needs are met.  Further, if you have a representative who truly understands the unique needs of your practice you will be set up for success!

Crown Tenant Advisors Helps The Healthy Woman Open Their Beautiful Practice

Posted on:

Crown Tenant Advisors helped secure a very STRONG tenant improvement package and FREE rent to get The Healthy Woman’s BEAUTIFUL practice off and running on the right foot!

“My experience with Crown Tenant Advisors was absolutely PHENOMENAL! They took my feeble attempts at finding an office and negotiating a lease, and turned it into a targeted, organized full time search and professional operation. I am so happy I was referred by Dr. April Speed. She told me I had to use them, and she was correct. Not only did they have my best interests in mind, they understood my vision of what I wanted my office to be, and actually believed in it and me. I am a young solo doctor with no prior business knowledge of opening or running a business. Amanda was my realtor and she completely took over. She understood my goals and kept me encouraged along the way until we found my perfect place. She did not stop until the contract was perfect, and I was in the best financial situation for my life and work. I am an OB-GYN. Amanda worked in between my deliveries and surgeries to meet with me and keep me on track. I just had my open house yesterday. My office is beautiful and everything I have ever wanted. Thank you Amanda and Crown Tenant Advisers for making The Healthy Woman a reality. I recommend Crown Tenant Advisors to any medical professional even thinking about opening their own office. Let them help you, so you can continue to work and see patients while they help to make your dream come true. They are truly the reason I am at the place I am today. Thank you, Amanda. I love you!”

Dr. Jocelyn Slaughter, MD – The Healthy Woman

3 Common Real Estate Pit-Falls To Avoid

Posted on:

1. Disclosing too much information to a current or potential Landlord.
Sharing too much can limit your negotiating power.

2. Calling numbers off of “For Lease” signs.
These calls should be handled by your advisor to limit the flow of information and maximize leverage.

3. Believing the myth that it will cost money to have representation.
Crown Tenant Advisors is compensated by the seller/landlord on completed transactions, so you don’t pay a dime for our services. Ever.
