"Our office was quickly approaching its lease-end date with approximately 7 months remaining and nobody had begun planning for the relocation! I was unexpectedly assigned the task of coordinating the relocation, and considering I had never personally relocated an office I was overwhelmed and did not know where to start. Thankfully, we hired Colliers and my experience with Nick Nybakken quickly eased my concerns. Nick was extremely attentive in considering our needs in regards to budget, square footage, parking, proximity to amenities, etc. Nick quickly responded with a package of proposed sites and we immediately began touring locations. After making our initial selections Nick provided us a five-year (65 month) financial analysis for four selected locations, and included costs associated with renewing our current tenancy. The forecast helped us to visualize the full cost over a 5year and 5month lease-term with annual rent increases, but also demonstrated the savings each site had to offer in comparison to the space we were vacating. Once we had finalized our choice Nick stepped into action by preparing a draft lease and negotiating lease-terms between ourselves and our new prospective landlord, and also helped ensure the necessary tenant improvements were completed in a timely manner. With the help of Colliers and Nick Nybakken we were able to make informed choices and ultimately relocate on time. If the need & opportunity arose to work with Nick again I would have no hesitations!"
