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

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.

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.

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. Leveraging the opportunity to improve commercial real estate terms can have more IMPACT on practice PROFITABILITY than increasing production. 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!”

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.

ENT opened in Suwanee, Georgia!

Posted on:

Matt Gill was excited to open his own practice.  We were introduced via a medical practice consultant.  From our first meeting in a Starbucks,  he knew the general location he wanted to be in and had done considerable research on where their were gaps for ENTs.    We provided some additional demographic data.  Most of the available space in the area was retail based which would be unique for a specialty physician.  We negotiated on 2 properties ultimately landing on a great location that is more of an office location with retail signage.   We were able to negotiate aggressive terms which will allow him to get the practice off on the right foot.

He is currently open and seeing patients.  His open house will be in January.  Give his Facebook page a “like” to follow along on the growth of the practice.

Dr. Gill treats both children and adults.

New Breast Surgery Practice Open on Howell Mill!

Posted on:

We were thrilled to be a part of the vision Dr. Speed has for her Global Breast Health and Wellness Center.  Dr. Speed is a well trained physician who has been employed by large hospital organizations.  A few years ago she set out on the dream to own her own practice and started with a location in Conyers.  She quickly knew that an Atlanta location was necessary to meet the unmet needs of patients in the metro area.  We worked to identify the location that would give patients the most access throughout the city.  We negotiated an aggressive lease with significant landlord contribution to free rent and buildout costs to get her started on the right foot.

Dr. Speed’s practice has a spa like feel allowing patients and their families to feel comfortable in her suite.  Calming music,  decor and inspirational quotes help her practice stand out.  It doesn’t feel like a clinic.   The warm towels and robes make her patients feel relaxed during an otherwise stressful time.  She has a unique approach to helping women take care of themselves.  The staff is super friendly and accommodating which is another must for a successful practice.


They are now scheduling patients in the Howell Mill location.

New Pediatric Practice in Johns Creek!

Posted on:

We were so excited to work with Dr. Madhuri on setting up her new pediatric practice north of Atlanta.  She had been in practice for many years mostly seeing patients on the south side of Atlanta and wanted to start her own practice near the community she resides in.

She contacted us to assist her in the first step of the process which is to identify the best location.  Because we only specialize in healthcare we know about built out spaces throughout the city.  There happened to be a built out pediatric practice recently vacated that we knew about and would not be on the market long.  We knew this could be an excellent option for her.  After negotiations with the Landlord we were able to secure favorable terms for her.  She was able to customize the practice with Tenant Improvement Allowance from the Landlord.  Free rent will allow her to build her patient base before paying base rent.

Dr. Madhuri’s pediatric practice, Dare 2 Care Pediatrics is open and ready to see patients.  If you are in the Johns Creek/Alpharetta/Roswell/Cumming area and looking for a pediatrician, look no further.  She is an excellent physician and her practice is conveniently located with free parking.  We are confident she will be a strong success.
